Colorado Springs, Colo— Westone Laboratories has launched its “Greater Than” campaign to educate hearing professionals on the advantages to using a custom earpiece for receiver-in-the-canal (RIC) hearing instruments.

“Receiver-in-the-canal hearing instruments offer patients a discreet and appealing amplification solution, but a one-size-fits-all earpiece is not always the answer when fitting this type of hearing instrument,” explains Christine Maré, AuD, CCC-A, FAAA, Westone director of hearing healthcare.

She adds that custom earpieces for RIC hearing instruments allow audiologists to give patients more venting options, improved gain, and better retention, while preserving comfort and cosmetic appeal.

To help educate hearing health professionals, Westone taught a workshop at the recent AAA conference in Boston. In addition, it has developed new educational materials and other resources, including a new website and a “quick start guide”that will be available over the coming  months.
