Abstract

OLIVEIRA, Jerusa Roberta Massola de; AMANTINI, Regina Célia Bortoleto; DORA, Daniela Rossine  and  YACHIOKA, Patrícia Lourenço. Presenting the process of making the capsule of intra-aural hearing aid through digitization. Rev. CEFAC [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.1, pp. 89-93.  Epub Apr 12, 2012. ISSN 1982-0216.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-18462012005000031.

PURPOSE: the objective of this study is to present the steps involved in making the capsule of intra-aural hearing aids through scanning. METHOD: we used the Legato otoplasty equipment in order to perform scanning and Enisiontec for sintering, both provided by the company Phonak. RESULTS: the results point out to capsule-ear hearing aid, as being fully satisfying and with all the benefits documented by the manufacturer. CONCLUSION: a new technique in order to make the capsule through the scanning process has been proven effective and with high quality and keeping the faithful imprint of the ear, in addition to significant durability.
