About Us

1 in 6 New Zealanders have a hearing impairment and 40% of New Zealanders will experience some form of balance disorder over the course of their life.

The Eisdell Moore Centre was established in 2017 with a mission to reduce the impact of hearing and balance disability in New Zealand and the Pacific region through research, community education and the promotion of evidence based clinical services.

We bring together researchers and clinicians at the Universities of Auckland, Otago, Canterbury and Auckland University of Technology to undertake multidisciplinary research aimed at developing prevention, treatment and interventions for hearing impairment and balance disorders.

We work with community groups such as the National Foundation for the Deaf and the New Zealand Dizziness, Balance and Vertigo Society to support community education on these disorders to aid prevention and to promote treatment options.
