Tympan is currently used in education as a Master Hearing Aid in Audiology Departments and as a general purpose audio processing tool in Acoustics Classrooms. 

Benefits for Academia

Students and researchers are able to experiment with novel algorithms and test existing new hearing aid algorithms with human subjects. Additionally, testing user interface design and using a phone or tablet app as a tool for self-fitting and algorithm adjustment allows for user experience testing and experimentation with cutting edge hearing aid use cases.

Ease of Use 

    It’s easy to get started with Tympan. The software is available and the phone app is customizable. Something here about the getting started resources, online tutorials and Arduino Library examples offer starting points for exploration...

    Quality Resources

    Our documentation is freely available. There is a very responsive and engaging forum available to help out and answer any questions. Another valuable resource for software development is our Gitub page.

    Open Source

    Open source provides endless opportunities for learning and encourages creativity and innovation. Tympan is Open Source Hardware and Software, and offers understanding of open-source techniques, benefits and ethics.  Anyone can create, obtain, study, modify, distribute, use, and share Tympan hardware designs and software resources. Tympan tools are open, free (libre), and liberally licensed. Tympan systems are maintainable, updatable, and repairable. We follow the best practice guidelines of the Open Source Hardware Association, and meet the definition of open-source hardware. 

    “Using Tympan Rev-E open-source development platform we have shown the proof-of-concept for a ‘smart’ baby monitor.”
