Andre Wedekind – Master of Audiology
M.Clin.Aud., B.H.Sc (Physiotherapy).
Andre joined our team in 2014 following the completion of a Masters in Clinical Audiology at the University of Western Australia. Andre is also a registered Physiotherapist specialising in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of balance disorders.
As such, his skill-set is unique and an invaluable addition to our practice and to care of people with neuro-otological disorders in WA.
Andre’s aim is to combine his knowledge of hearing and balance disorders with physiotherapy to provide high-level evidence-based care in auditory and vestibular management.
His interests in this field have lead him to undergo further training in cochlear implants and other implantable devices. Andre’s main research interest is the validation of muscular sites in vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs), a test that is becoming increasingly important in the identification of Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence
