The ear is a sensory organ that picks up sound waves and thus enables us to hear. it is also of central importance for our sense of balance, because the inner ear contains the organ of equilibrium. the information from the organ of equilibrium is processed in the brain and passed on to other organs that depend on this information - for example, the eyes, the joints or the muscles. this enables us to keep our body in balance and orient ourselves in space.

You can measure your balance on a balance board and your hearing with an audiometer in the frequencies 0.5 to 8 kHz.
