At the same time, we already measure the employees' hearing protection. Thanks to a personal impression, we can recreate a perfect representation of the auditory canal to produce closing otoplastics.


Step 2: production of otoplastics

The basis of any otoplasty is an impression of your ear, crucial for the perfect fit and comfort. We make a painless silicone impression of your ear. This meticulous method guarantees an accurate fit.

In our laboratory, we 3D scan the impression, after which we print an exact copy in resin or silicone. This ensures custom-made otoplastics with the right filters and attenuation We work with high-quality materials that meet the strictest requirements in terms of quality and safety.

Based on your needs we can add further details. Think about a handle, carrying cord, colours or a detection bullet. Is everything to your liking? Then the otoplastics are ready for use.

Step 3: Personal delivery

In the workplace, safety is essential. Therefore, it is important that workers are provided with the right protective equipment, such as hearing protection. Unfortunately, many workers are still sent their hearing protection by post, which poses risks.

There is a risk that the employee is not properly instructed on how to use the hearing protection or that the otoplasty does not fit adequately. This can lead to hearing damage and other long-term health problems. Therefore, it is very important that employees are given proper instructions and that the hearing protection fits properly.

By delivering the hearing protection in person, we can test its quality and give direct instructions to the employee. This way, we can ensure that the hearing protection fits well and is used properly.
