900 MHz–1.8 GHz
Modulation type: pulsed
|Setup||The test subjects were exposed to a mobile phone that was placed over the mastoid process of the test ear. They had Otoacoustic emissions measured without the phone and with the phone on receive and transmit.|
|Additional info||The volume of the mobile phone was set to minimum to remove any noise effect. The ambient noise throughout the test was below 40 dB.|
No parameters are specified for this exposure.
There was no statistical difference between the subject responses. This would indicate that pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) from commonly available mobile phones have no measurable effect on the outer hair cell function during the time of use.
