Eartistic Hearing & Balance Centre
Eartistic Hearing and Balance Centre (Eartistic) offers comprehensive services to diagnose and manage adults with hearing impairment, tinnitus symptoms and vestibular disorders, particularly those suffering from Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) and peripheral vestibular loss.
At Eartistic we use top of the range hearing and balance diagnostic equipment in our clinic including vHIT, videonystagmography, and vestibular evoke myogenic potentials (VEMPs). Patient diagnosis is achieved by administration of these highly specialized tests. The tests are completed by our highly skilled Audiologists, who are members of Malaysian National Association of Audiologists (MANSA). We also conduct a thorough history and audiological evaluation including otoscopic examination, audiometric tests, and middle ear evaluation. Diagnosis is made by a Specialist Audiologist with a minimum requirement of BSc in Audiology.
Management of patients is also highly specialized and the treatment plan is developed by a specialist audiologist and takes the form of a personalized treatment plan that is developed in conjunction with the patient. Treatment offered would be in the form of Hearing Aids, Auditory Rehabilitation, Cochlear Implant Counselling, Tinnitus Management, Canal Repositioning Treatment and customized Balance Retraining Therapy (BRT). We have a range of hearing aid brands that are all regulated and audited according to Good Distribution Practice in Medical Device ( GDPMD ) and other assistive listening devices.
We also understand the importance of motivational support thus offer a telephonic service for our patients that has difficulty in accessing transport to the practice. We work with multidisciplinary professions for a holistic approach to managing patient , hence the more reason for us to be in the hospital.
The practice also aims to provide public educational services and prevention plans to improve the social awareness of hearing, tinnitus symptoms and vestibular related problems. Additionally we also perform fitting of telecoil systems in the Public places, Mosques and surau for hearing aid wearers and to allow Ummah and public to enjoy listening to the khutbah and talks more efficiently . This will also help reduce the number of demensia in the community as reduce usage of hearing increases 9% of demensia.
