Product Information on:
GN-Resound Capella system




      With Madsen’s Capella, you can combine otoacoustic emissions (OAE) testing, screening tympanometry and infant hearing screening in the same Windows ™ -based system. Because Capella is software-based and modular, you can choose only those testing options you require now and add more later. Each testing mode is offered as a separate application module in the form of software and accessories. The following application modules can be freely combined : Distortion Product OAE, Transient Evoked OAE, Screening Tympanometry, and Echo-Screen ™ TEOAE Screening. Both OAE modules include a mode for measurement of Spontaneous OAE’s. Echo-Screen is Madsen‘s handheld OAE screener. Capella can now emulate Madsen’s Echo-Screen handheld OAE infant hearing screener. The new Screening Tympanometry module offers the choice of both 226 and 1000 Hz probe tones.




    Pentium recommended, minimum 16 MB RAM. VGA Graphics Adapter. Windows operating system (NT, 95, 98, ME). RS232C Serial interface (min. 1 free COM port)

The owners of the MADSEN PC-based systems can upgrade their products with software rather than having to buy new hardware. The MADSEN products integrate with office management networks (they support the NOAH TM standard) and hospital mainframe systems. Even equipment diagnostics and troubleshooting can be handled via modem.




Capella runs under the NOAH/PAX databases. All the OAE measurements can be organized in a professional database, allowing to manage more easily large numbers of patients. The OAE test system can be installed on the same PC or network you use to perform other audiological measurements, like audiometry and real ear measurement, for example. And all your measurements can be saved in the same patient file.
