Amplicomms, a company that provides phone services for people with hearing and sight impairments, is looking to solve moisture-related problems with its new dry box.
The manufacturer claims that nearly half of hearing aids sent for repairs are down to poor maintenance, leading to unnecessary costs.
Without correct maintenance moisture from body heat, particularly in the summer, can clog hearing aids; this can lead to bacterial ear infections, affect the sound quality and cause damage to costly and sensitive components.
With built in infrared lights and heater, the new amplicomms DB130 and DB200 dry out moisture and kill 99.9% of bacteria, helping to preserve sound quality, avoid ear infections and prolong the life of the hearing aid.
The new dry boxes will treat hearing aids, cochlear implant receivers, noise maskers, ear monitors etc. Just pop the hearing instruments in the center, close the box, turn on and set the timer option to 2, 4 or 8 hours.
The larger capacity DB200 bedside model is easy to clean with a removable, dishwasher safe tray features a battery tester to see the power left in batteries.
