Real ear measurement (REM) for hearing aid fitting was clinically introduced in 1983. However, many audiologists are not performing REM to ensure the prescribed amount of gain is achieved. Common reasons for not performing REM include time contraints and a lack of familiarization with the test equipment. To help improve the process, Signia has developed an updated AutoREM Fit application. This course reports on research supporting the accuracy and reliability of the procedure.
