Ear canals are as unique as our fingerprints. Today, we use a one size fits all approach in most consumer products for our ears. Custom fittings are performed in the hearing aid industry but the manual process requires considerable skill developed over years of professional audiology practice.
Born in the labs of MIT’s Mechanical Engineering department, a novel 3D scanning technology replaces traditional methods bringing science to the art of impression taking.
Lantos Technologies has developed the world’s first direct, digital, 3D scanner capable of measuring ear canal shape and tissue compliance to produce a highly accurate map of the ear canal. This method will enable earpiece makers to eliminate the uncertainties associated with manual fits, greatly improving the performance of custom made ear products across consumer audio earphones, hearing aid, and noise protection device markets.
