Abstract
(EN)
The present application discloses systems, methods, and articles of manufacture for fitting a hearing prosthesis to a hearing prosthesis recipient. Some embodiments include generating a first set of two or more stimulation signals via a corresponding set of two or more channels of a hearing prosthesis, reducing the corresponding stimulation levels of the stimulation signals of the first set of two or more stimulation signals in response to receiving an indication that a sound sensation corresponding to the first set of two or more stimulation signals is uncomfortably loud, and generating a second set of one or more stimulation signals at the reduced stimulation levels via a first subset of one or more channels.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne des systèmes, des procédés et des articles manufacturés destinés à adapter une prothèse auditive à un récipiendaire de prothèse auditive. Certains modes de réalisation comprennent les étapes consistant à générer un premier ensemble d'au moins deux signaux de stimulation via un ensemble correspondant d'au moins deux canaux d'une prothèse auditive, à réduire les niveaux de stimulation correspondants des signaux de stimulation du premier ensemble d'au moins deux signaux de stimulation en réponse à la réception d'une indication selon laquelle une sensation sonore correspondant au premier ensemble d'au moins deux signaux de stimulation est inconfortablement forte, et à générer un deuxième ensemble d'un ou plusieurs signaux de stimulation aux niveaux de stimulation réduits via un premier sous-ensemble d'un ou plusieurs canaux.
