Taking it to the next level

The concept that a properly fitting hearing instrument is the cornerstone of a successful fitting makes perfect sense yet in the era of ‘off the shelf’ products, the skill of taking ear impressions has become somewhat of a lost art. With the introduction of Invisible-in-Canal (IIC) devices, the art of impression taking skills has become even more important.

This webinar reviews the ear impression process: from material selection, ear examination, impression taking and final evaluation to provide a template for maintaining the critical skill of deep ear impressions. The course also includes a panel discussion with two clinicians who excel at the art and skill of deep impressions and IIC fittings.
