How to use the Occupational (Industrial) Healthcare smart folder

Using this smart folder type simplifies the method of testing to identify early hearing loss and to calculate measures for compensation.

The KUDUwave uses multiple criteria (OSHA, SANS, WHO etc.) to develop testing protocols and assistive interpretations of results. The KUDUwave software uses these criteria to separate which test protocols are most needed and used by this particular industry.

Which tests can I perform in this folder type?

  • Milestone Baseline & STS Screening (Standard Threshold Shift)
  • PLH Baseline, Screening and Exit (Percentage Loss of Hearing)
  • A combination of both Milestone & PLH Baselines or STS & PLH Monitoring
