At Better Balance & Hearing our priority is to help you experience your life to its fullest. Essentially, helping people to experience the remarkable sounds of life and the phenomenon of normal balance is a goal that we strive to achieve every day.
Our practice, with its friendly staff and warm, comfortable atmosphere, will provide you with a complete and thorough service. The partners of Better Balance & Hearing both have a special interest in Balance and Dizziness Assessments and Rehabilitation, namely Videonystagmography (VNG) and Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP), of which we have the only full Neurocom system in Africa.
Pediatric audiology encompasses assessing the hearing of newborns, infants, toddlers and school-age children.
Our audiologists are specially trained to identify hearing problems in children at all developmental levels.
Pure tone audiometry measures hearing sensitivity in each ear. Sounds are presented at different frequencies (or pitch) at reducing levels of loudness.
From this we construct a graph or audiogram which shows us if there is a hearing loss and assists in determining what part of the ear is damaged.
Videonystagmography (VNG) is a series of eye-movement tests that look for signs of vestibular dysfunction or neurological problems by measuring nystagmus (a type of involuntary eye movements). VNG tests are the most common ones administered to people with dizziness, vertigo, and/or balance disorders.
