Otto 128 Tuning Fork with Bag
About this deal
In the primary care setting, it is useful to use the Weber and Rinne tests to help the clinician differentiate between conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss. This will guide the clinician to the need for further examination, investigation, and management.

In clinical practice, the 512-Hz tuning fork has traditionally been preferred. At this frequency, it provides the best balance of time of tone decay and tactile vibration. Lower-frequency tuning forks like the 256-Hz tuning fork provide greater tactile vibration. In other words, they are better felt than heard. Higher-frequency tuning forks, for example, the 1024-Hz tuning fork, have a shorter tone decay time. After being disappointed with a few other companies I am glad to report this is a high quality fork. Then promptly lift the fork off the mastoid process and place the vibrating tips about 1cm from their external auditory meatusScores are denoted as the lowest number of rods a patient can discriminate from rod (0) and this is the threshold value of the TCD test. For example, if the patient can only discern rods (5), (6), and (7) from (0), a score of five will be denoted. A score of six or higher is significantly correlated with neuropathy ( Maser 1997; Vileikyte 1997).

Difference Between Rinne and Weber, if we compare the Rinne test is performed first. They help in determining the difference between sensorineural and conductive hearing loss. Since all living creatures are sustained by Qi, or life force energy, placing tuning forks near a chakra or energy center, or directly on an animal’s body can help to balance the nervous system, making the animal more calm and less stressed. These tests are noninvasive and cause no pain and no associated risks. The information they provide determines the type of hearing loss you may have, especially when the results of both tests are used together.There are two types of tuning forks used for tuning forks healing therapy — weighted and unweighted, and each have their specific uses and benefits.
