The Accolado is your all in one reward toy box

Paediatric audiology: it can be magic!

Visual Reinforcement Audiometry (VRA), Conditioned Orientation Reflex Audiometry (CORA)  and Instrumentation Conditioned Reflex Audiometry (ICR) are essential in testing young children from 5 months up to 7 years. Children enjoy being rewarded!

A variety of lights, moving and illuminated toys, pictures and short movies guarantees a maximum attention span. The Accolado intrigues and surprises.  It is ideal to elicit head turn reflexes in infants or to reward the toddler in play audiometry.  Different control options make it fit for any audiometric test setup.

The Accolado is software driven and its latest built in technologies make it ready to challenge the future.

LED Lights

The top level features the ‘traffic lights’ with 3 bright LED lights which can flash by themselves or in different combinations to create a spectacular light show. The endless combinations of possible light shows and other rewards make sure that you always draw the child’s attention.

Monitor

The middle level has a monitor which can display static or animated visual rewards on different background colors.  Accolado comes with a series of built-in pictures.  It is also possible to upload your own pictures (gif files) in Accolado for future use.  When presenting picture rewards, you can choose on the spot which background color to associate with a picture.  Hence, the possible combinations of pictures and backgrounds are unlimited.

Peep Shows

The lower level consists of two ‘peep-show’ boxes which can accommodate and illuminate mechanical toys, either or not animated.  Both rooms can be activated separately.  The toys are not included but any AC mains powered toy of your liking should do well!

Foot switch

The rewards can be activated either with the operator’s keyboard/mouse or by means of foot switches which can be placed inside or outside the sound treated room.

 Mushroom

The Accolado comes with a fancy mushroom button which toddlers are very fond of.  It acts as a response button, activating an indicator light in A§E when pressed.

Wheels

The 35 kg Accolado is easy to move thanks to a custom-made optional support with 4 wheels.  Off support, the accolade is robust, stable and tamper-resistant.

Sockets

In addition, three sockets at the backside can activate any supplementary animated toy of your choice (AC mains powered).  You can put these toys next to the Accolado or on top of it in the toy tray.

Connection

The accolado is connected to your local network by a straight UTP cable. The A§E Accolado software detects the accolado automatically. No special installation is required, just “plug and play”.

Designed to please your intuition

The Accolado software is designed to be versatile according to the child’s age and interests. It is installed on one of your existing computers or on a laptop. Control up to 2 Accolados simultaneously, just by clicking the reward of your choice. Picking the screen’s background color, launching animations and videos, activating your mechanical toys or creating a spectacular light show… with Accolado you have it all at the tips of your fingers. Create playlists with the most appropriate reward sequences, for instance only using traffic lights for the youngest toddlers. The software can be used as stand-alone application or combined with all A§E test modules. The user interfaces are of minimal size, designed to be used side by side with A§E* or any other audiometric test software, to extend the possibilities of audiological testing beyond imagination.

Reliable audiological results

Especially for young children, Accolado matches perfectly with A§E to obtain reliable audiological results. The A§E phoneme discrimination tests can already be done with children from 8-9 months onwards. The phoneme identification task can be performed by children of 2 years and older.

It can be installed in the sound-treated test room and connected to the local network. It is operated by means of the A§E Accolado software installed on the audiologist’s computer inside or outside the test room
Successive rewards can be freely chosen, or at random, or according to predefined sequences
Can be customized by installing your own electrical animated toys (operating on 220 or 110 V AC power) or by uploading your own animated pictures for display on the monitor
