Bluetooth Hearing Aids
We provide both Bluetooth hearing aids that can be wirelessly connected to devices such as televisions, cell phones, FM systems, GPS systems, PDAs and Bluetooth-friendly accessories like custom earmolds for cell phone headrests and hands-free accessories.
Cell Phone Accessories
Custom earmolds for cell phone headrests, Bluetooth compatible device, hands-free and more.
Cochlear Implant Mapping
Mapping is the term used for programming a cochlear implant. Cochlear implant maps are set based on an individual’s response to sound through the cochlear implant device.
Hearing Aid Conservation
Occupational noise-induced hearing loss is a growing concern, but it can be prevented. We provide resources on the OSHA requirements your employer should be following as part of a hearing conservation program.
Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
Our hearing evaluations use tone and speech tests to reveal the extent of your hearing loss. With this information, we will determine whether hearing aids or other treatment options will best improve your hearing.
Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Since the various systems produce different hearing impressions, it is important for you to make a comparison yourself. For this purpose we will produce custom-made earmolds based on the exact contours of your ears. We can then ensure that your hearing aid fits perfectly.
Evaluation and demonstration of Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs)
Assistive listening devices (ALDs) can help those with hearing loss communicate better in everyday situations. In the home, they can be used to create custom alarms and enhance the output of television and telephones without interfering with equipment or disturbing other listeners. In public, ALDs can be connected to personal hearing aids for better listening in noisy environments. Our audiologists will evaluate your needs for these devices and demonstrate how they can be helpful to you.
Evaluation and Fitting for Musician's Ear Plugs
Musicians are often exposed to high levels of sound for long periods, placing them at risk for permanent hearing damage. We provide evaluations and fittings for musician’s earplugs – custom devices that help limit excessive sound exposure from musical instruments while persevering the richness of the experience.
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
When we dispense your hearing aids, an audiologist will have you try them on in the office so we can fine-tune the programming and fit. This process ensures long-term comfort and satisfaction with your new hearing aids.
Hearing Aid Repairs
We also provide troubleshooting and minor repairs for your hearing aids in-office and can send devices that need major repairs directly to the manufacturer for service.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
In addition to the extensive hearing testing offered at Colorado West Audiologists, our practice also provides a number of hearing aid services to ensure you receive the proper treatment for your condition.
Industrial hearing screenings
Industrial work sites with excessive noise levels pose a hazard to hearing, so those who work in these places need regular hearing tests. Our audiologists provide 30-minute industrial hearing screenings that comply with OSHA standards.
Live Speech Mapping
Our audiologists give basic and specialized hearing tests and services. The audiologist will review your symptoms and medical history to determine which hearing evaluations will be most beneficial to diagnosis.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, affects millions of adults in the U.S. Tinnitus evaluations can help identify the severity of your symptoms and help you manage it with a variety of devices and therapies.
The earlier we detect hearing problems, the less likely a child will experience speech and language learning delays during the crucial developmental years. Our pediatric audiologists provide a full range of hearing services designed to diagnose and treat hearing conditions in infants and children.
VNG - Balance Evaluations
VNG, which stands for videonystagmography, is used to evaluate the vestibular balance system in patients with symptoms of vertigo, dizziness and other balance disorders. VNG studies are also combined with hearing evaluation tests if an audiologist suspects an inner ear disorder.
