Monika Lehnhardt answers the questions of experts and parents in the forum discussion on Remote Fitting and Rehabilitation on 09.06.2013

[Olga Prokhorova-Moscow] How are less experienced specialists supported – what are the conditions, and how can this be implemented? As a junior specialist (SLP) I have an interest in this.

Which types of remote cooperation are you interested in? Various institutions operating under this method exist in different countries. We will try to find an expert who can cooperate on the topic which matters for you, basing specifically on remote communication.

[Jana Frey] From June 11th through June 14th, a rehabilitation workshop will be conducted in Lviv – this is for experts. For parents the date is June 15th. You can access it via the PORA weblog and take part:  http://www.lehnhardt-akademie.net/weblog-ru/category/planning-lviv/

Additionally, the software used for remote fitting helps the experienced expert adjust the processor settings on the PC of the less experienced one; the two experts can communicate with each other, and also with the parents. read more –>

Doris Vercelli answers the questions of experts and parents in the seminar on Remote Fitting and Rehabilitation 26.05.2013

«Remote fitting is a technology which forms
a transition to home-made fitting,
and self-fitting by the patient».
Prof. A. Buechner (Director for Science,
German Hearing Center, Hannover,
ENT Clinic of the Hannover College of Medicine)

[Evgeniya Grigorieva-Astrakhan] Is remote fitting likely to be worth performing [to a higher degree] on adult patients with late onset of deafness?
Definitely not; it is just as suitable for younger children with different indications. But this is circumstance-dependent; the expert doing the fitting remotely should have a good rapport with the family and the child.

[Ulyana Kovna-Lviv] How old should a child be before it is possible to fit them remotely?
This depends on how well the expert is acquainted with the situation and the needs as well as the hearing ability of the child.
A webcam does not enable the expert to see the child’s reaction in detail, yet this is the data on which the correct settings are partly based. This is why the Hannover experts have spoken against remote fitting for infants and early school age children.

[Jana Frey_Berlin] So which age is appropriate for beginning the practice?
I think this may be considered once the child is one year old. The expert doing the fitting should also know the child very well.

[Monika LehnhardtAuggen] I know that in Australia as well as in Poland remote fitting is done on very young children, due to the huge distances involved.
We might try this in the future; after all, we opened just in 2011. We are very open to new experiences in remote rehabilitation.

[Nikiforov Konstantin] Do both children and adults receive remote fitting? Or is this just for the adults?
So far we’ve gained experience just with older patients; our youngest is 10 years old. We are confident that fitting over distance is possible for younger children, too.
