Carina Avenant Audiologist Inc. is a privately owned audiology practice situated in Medforum Hospital, Pretoria.  The director of the firm, Carina Avenant, has extensive theoretical and clinical experience in Audiology.  Miss Avenant has post graduate degrees and is still involved in the tertiary training of students in this field.  The company was established in 2013 and strive to help patients of all age-groups to hear better and optimise their communication abilities.  All audiologists employed, are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.

Although the main practice is situated in Medforum Medi-clinic, we also boast a mobile unit.  We are in the fortunate position to have a KUDUwave audiometer which eliminates the need for a soundproof booth.

The KUDUwave Mobile Clinical Diagnostic Audiometer has built-in sound blocking capabilities that are comparable to those of a high performance, industry standard, screening sound booth.

It’s built in sound blocking feature called the Ambidome attenuates noise similar or even better than traditional sound proof booths. Furthermore the KUDUwave monitors the environmental noise constantly in real time. This ensures that whenever a tone is presented, the environmental noise levels are quiet enough so as not to compromise the test results. The operator is alerted when the noise in the background is too loud for compliant testing.

This unit allows us to provide services to environments or individuals who might find it difficult to access audiological services through ordinary avenues.  The need for high quality audiological equipment as well as good competencies is acknowledged, but these services must be provided on the foundation of excellent interpersonal skills.  The audiologists involved in the practise understand that service provision necessitates extreme respect, patience as well as extra time and loving care.
