ReSound, the technology provider in hearing solutions, has released results from a recent study into the iSolate nanotech protective coating for hearing instruments, which was shown to decrease moisture and debris related repairs by 50% in the first six months.
ReSound Global Audiology head Jennifer Groth said the benefits of iSolate nanotech become more evident with time and they expect even better results at the 9 – 12 month mark.
iSolate nanotech works by coating all elements of the hearing aids with a thin protective layer that bonds at a molecular level with the internal and external components, shielding them without affecting their performance.
The ReSound iSolate nanotech technology treats completed devices, not just individual vulnerable components as others may do.
The application process, which is done in a vacuum chamber, ensures global coating of all components inside and out.
"With iSolate nanotech, we’re able to offer more durable hearing instruments that have greater resistance to moisture, humidity, oil and wax and this translates into more satisfied patients and fewer returns and repairs," Groth said.
