Software Programs

There are two software programs developed by VMBHRC teams to pursue their research work, available for purchase by other professionals in the field of cochlear implants.

Clinical Assessment of Music Perception for Cochlear Implants (CAMP)

CAMP is a self-administered music perception-based test of cochlear implants, for use in the fields of otolaryngology, hearing sciences, audiology, and health care. It is appropriate for all ages, and has been used for subjects as young as six years old.

Spectral-Ripple Resolution Assessment for Cochlear Implant Users

Spectral-Ripple Resolution Assessment for Cochlear Implant Users is a software program intended for use by healthcare professionals or auditory scientists that permits easy measurement of spectral ripple discrimination in a normal hearing, hearing impaired or cochlear implant listener. This test may be useful in the selection of cochlear implant candidates, fitting of hearing aids or mapping of cochlear implants.

Both of these programs are licensed through CoMotion, the University of Washington’s intellectual property management hub. They work only on the Windows platform, and only on Windows 7 or earlier OS versions. Once purchased, you will be contacted by a VMBHRC employee to arrange delivery of your software, by providing download links or shipping the program on CD via FedEx (shipping costs are included in the purchase price).
