Inserting Otoplastics - Tips and instructions from Ronell for correct application

The correct insertion of otoplastics is crucial to ensure a optimal fit and achieve the desired results. At Ronell, we understand the importance of the right insertion process and want to highlight why this is so important for otoplastics.

Benefits of inserting otoplastics correctly

One of the main advantages of inserting otoplastics correctly is benefiting from the optimal fit. Otoplastics are custom-made to fit perfectly in your ears, and a good fit is essential for effective noise reduction. By inserting the otoplastics correctly, a good seal is created, effectively reducing ambient noise and keeping your hearing is protected.

In addition, correctly inserting otoplastics ensures improved noise reduction. If otoplastics are not inserted properly, there may be sound leakage occur, resulting in the desired attenuation not being fully achieved. Inserting otoplastics correctly will minimise the risk of sound leakage and allow you to take full advantage of the noise reduction they offer.

Step-by-step instructions for inserting otoplastics

  1. Make sure you notice the highlighted colours: red for right and blue for left, so you place the otoplastics on the right side;
  2. Twist the cord on the clip and then attach it firmly. This ensures that the cord is securely attached and does not get in the way while working;
  3. Attach the clip to your collar so you can't accidentally drop or lose the otoplastics;
  4. Grasp the hearing protector by the approach between your thumb and forefinger, with the serial number facing away from you;
  5. Hold the earplug upright and gently insert it into your ear. You may want to rotate the otoplasty slightly so that it sits a little deeper in your ear. If the cord causes friction, you can choose to wear the otoplasty over your ears;
  6. Check that the earplugs fit properly and feel comfortable. If they are properly fitted, you are ready to get to work quickly and safely.

Frequently asked questions about inserting otoplastics

How long does it take to get used to wearing otoplastics?

The time it takes to get used to otoplastics can vary from person to person. In general, most people have single days to a few weeks needed to fully get used to wearing otoplastics. During this period, your body will adjust to the sensations and fit of the otoplastics. It is important to be patient and wear the otoplastics regularly to allow yourself to get used to them.

How tight should otoplastics be?

Otoplastics should be comfortable and secure in your ears. They should form a good seal to effectively block sound. However, they should not be too tight, as this can cause discomfort or pain. A general guideline is that otoplastics should firm but not constricting, should sit in your ear canal. If you experience discomfort or if the otoplastics are too loose, take contact on with Ronell for a fit adjustment.

How often should otoplastics be replaced?

The lifespan of otoplastics can vary depending on several factors, such as frequency of use, environmental conditions and maintenance. In general, we recommend otoplastics to be checked annually by a qualified hearing adviser. They can assess the otoplastics for wear, damage or change in fit. If necessary, they can be replaced or adjusted to ensure optimal performance. Regular cleaning and maintenance of otoplastics according to Ronell's recommendations also help extend their life.
