HOUSTON, Oct. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --

PURPOSE: To announce the debut of the KUDUwave Pro TMP Audiometer at Allergy & ENT Associates network of clinics. The KUDUwave, a medically-certified portable and boothless audiometer, is utilized in the testing and diagnosis of auditory-related deficiencies.

SPECIFICS:  Allergy & ENT Associates becomes the first face-paced, diagnostic ENT/Audiology setting in Texas to use the KUDUwave Pro TMP, diagnostic immittance audiometer. KUDUwave Pro TMP is a Type 1 Clinical Immittance Instrument. The KUDUwave device technology integrates tympanometry and acoustic stapedius reflex measurement functionality into the KUDUwave headset.
