Otoscan: here, and in the News

You may remember, back in 2018, the Hearing Healthcare Practice became the first practice in the UK be chosen to trial and review the revolutionary Otoscan laser ear scanner.

Now Otoscan is in the news. Follow this LINK to see a recent BBC News report:

The remarkable new all laser, three dimensional Otoscan ear scanner is designed specifically for audiologists and you can benefit from it now at the Hearing Healthcare Practice.

As Hearing Healthcare Practice Audiologist, Angelique Da Costa, explained:

“With Otoscan we can literally ‘paint with light’ the contours of the outer ear and ear canal using three separate (completely harmless) laser beam sweeps to create beautiful 3D computer images which we can safely store until needed.  And,  unlike traditional ear moulds, these digital images can to shared with professional colleagues and laboratories in seconds, without having to send packages through the post and run the risk of damaging a physical object or it becoming lost in transit

“So now if you lose your hearing protectors, in ear monitors, an ear mould or custom-made hearing aid, with your computerised images securely held in our databank, we can simply order an identical duplicate at the press of a button.”

Hearing Healthcare Practice is now providing this service with our compliments and it takes just 10 mins to complete. 

Please let us know if you’d like to have your ears digitally scanned, completely free of charge, when you next book in?*

At the  Hearing Healthcare Practice we strive to be at the forefront of our profession, leading by example and challenging the status quo, and this is just the latest example of that commitment.
