  • Additional AC/BC Test: Stenger Test, Tone Decay, ABLB;

You can easily customize the header with your logo and your clinic’s information. In addition, you can add your signature automatically.
  • Results can be stored in a database, saved to an encrypted file, printed, emailed or uploaded in a cloud storage service.
