How to Integrate Digital Ear Scanning into Your Audiology Practice

Have you begun thinking about the impact of digital scanning technology on your audiology practice? At 2:30pm today at the AudiologyNOW! 2014 conference, Lantos Technologies Global Training Manager Andrew McGrath will be giving a talk on this important topic.

With the introduction of 3D digital scanning into the custom fit ear device market, hearing professionals need to assess how (and whether) to incorporate digital impression taking into their practice from both a technological and a workflow perspective. What are the logistics of digital ear scanning? How does one measure ROI? What’s the impact on the current workflow?

If you’re in Orlando at the AAA 2014 conference today, please join the audience at our educational seminar, “Integrating 3D Ear Scanning into Your Practice Workflow”, part of the business track in the exhibitor courses from 2:30PM – 3:30PM in Room 230B. For a full schedule of where to see the AURA 3D Ear Scanning System at the conference, please click here.

The Hearing Aid Fitting Experience: Comparing Silicone Impressions and 3D Ear Scanning

We just published a white paper on our study of the variability in wall pressure applied to the ear canal wall using two different ear mold techniques: silicone impressions and 3D ear scanning. The results speak to the challenges of the hearing aid fitting experience. Get your copy of this audiology technology white paper here.

Lantos Unveils the AURA 3D Ear Scanning System at EUHA 2013

AURA™  is the commercial version of the Lantos 3D Ear Scanning System,  which will be available for order in 2014.

AURA 3D Scanning System by Lantos TechnologiesThe AURA System’s design incorporates the latest input from beta testers and hearing aid manufacturers and enables audiologists to obtain a deep, 3D scan of the ear canal—well past the second bend—safely and comfortably.    Eliminating the need for silicone impressions, scanning takes under one minute per ear and the files can be simply emailed to the device manufacturer saving time and logistics of the process.
