Title
(EN) METHOD FOR MONITORING A HEARING DEVICE AND HEARING DEVICE WITH SELF-MONITORING FUNCTION
(FR) PROCÉDÉ POUR SURVEILLER UNE PROTHÈSE AUDITIVE ET PROTHÈSE AUDITIVE DOTÉE D'UNE FONCTION D'AUTO-SURVEILLANCE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a method for monitoring a hearing device (10, 110) comprising an electroacoustic output transducer (18, 118) worn at a user's ear or in a user's ear canal, the method comprising: measuring the electrical impedance of the output transducer (18, 118); analyzing the measured electrical impedance of the output transducer (18, 118) in order to evaluate the status of the output transducer (18, 118) and/or of an acoustical system (20, 120) cooperating with the output transducer (18, 118); and outputting a status signal representative of the status of the output transducer (18, 1 18) and/or of the acoustical system (20, 120) cooperating with the output transducer (18, 118).
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un procédé pour surveiller une prothèse auditive (10, 110) comportant un transducteur de sortie électroacoustique (18, 118) porté par un utilisateur à l'oreille ou dans le méat acoustique externe. Ledit procédé consiste à mesurer l'impédance électrique du transducteur de sortie (18, 118); à analyser l'impédance électrique mesurée du transducteur de sortie (18, 118) afin d'évaluer l'état du transducteur de sortie (18, 118) et/ou d'un système acoustique (20, 120) coopérant avec le transducteur de sortie (18, 118); et à émettre un signal d'état représentatif de l'état du transducteur de sortie (18, 118) et/ou du système acoustique (20, 120) coopérant avec le transducteur de sortie (18, 118).
