Fitting Otoplastics? Explanation from A to Aftercare by hearing experts

If you suffer from hearing problems, this can have a big impact on your daily life. Fortunately, there are many solutions available, including otoplastics. In this article, we take a closer look at what otoplastics are, how Ronell hearing experts can help you fit otoplastics and what to expect during the process. With the motto, prevention is better than cure, we know how important it is to facilitate proper hearing protection. For both employees and employers, hearing protection is crucial.


What are otoplastics?

Otoplastics are custom-made hearing protectors which are worn in the ear. They are designed to protect hearing from harmful noise while still allowing you to communicate and hear what is going on around you. Otoplastics are suitable for a wide range of situations, from protecting hearing at concerts and festivals to protecting hearing in the workplace. Ronell is a specialist in providing hearing protection for a variety of industries, from training facilities to heavy industry.

How otoplastics fit works

At Ronell, fitting otoplastics is at the heart of our services. The fitting of otoplastics is a careful process in which we pay close attention to the client's individual needs and the hearing protection required.


Step 1: Intake and sound measurement

The process begins with a intake interview and sound measurement where we identify the customer's specific needs. We ask questions about the client's work, the type of hearing protection needed and any previous experience with hearing protection. We use an on-site sound measurement to measure peak volumes and averages. This gives a representative picture of the number of decibels of noise at the (work) site.

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

This impression forms the basis for the otoplastics and determines the fit and comfort of the hearing protection. The impression is made by means of a silicone impression that we apply to the ear. This is done carefully and painlessly.

After taking the impression, it is processed in our laboratory. We put the impression in our 3D scanner, so that an exact copy of resin or sillicone can be printed. As a result, the otoplastics are custom-made and fitted with the desired filters and attenuation. We work with high-quality materials that meet the most stringent quality and safety requirements.

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.

Otoplastics for construction and industry?

Work in construction and industry can pose significant risks to workers' hearing. Noise from machinery, tools and vehicles can lead to hearing damage and even permanent deafness. For this reason, it is vital that employers in these sectors take the necessary measures to protect the health of their workers.

According to Ronell, using personal hearing protection is the most effective way to prevent hearing damage. Earplugs and ear muffs should be used in situations where the noise level exceeds 80 decibels. Employers should also ensure that employees are regularly tested for their hearing to detect any damage and intervene in time.
