Instant Ear Geometry Capture

The standard process for fitting and manufacturing hearing aids is logistically complex, expensive, and time-consuming. Before a hearing aid can be made, a physical ear impression must be created and shipped to a manufacturer.

Lantos Technologies worked with Archimedic to bring the process of creating hearing aids into the 21st century. Now, rather than having a tube of silicone squeezed into a patient’s ear, audiologists quickly scan the inner and outer geometry of the ear with an optical handheld digital scanner. This results in a detailed 3D representation of the ear instantly sent to hearing aid manufacturers through the Internet. The Lantos technology captures a better scan of the ear canal resulting in a more comfortable and accurate fit for patients.
