HAPTIKAL® from pro3dure medical offers the possibility of creating earmolds with new functions and designs. New shapes and material classes for the production of earmolds, hearing aid shells, IEM‘s and faceplates become feasible. HAPTIKAL® textured structures can be applied across the surface of ear molds, including where it comes into contact with the hard ear canal area. This makes the earmold e.g. much more flexible to significantly increase the wearing comfort.
pro3dure has partnered with Hearables3D to push the borders of earmold production and to make this feature available within the automated CAD system AutoDesign. This means that AutoDesign can apply HAPTIKAL® textures onto its automated designs of earmolds, RICs and IEM’s. Manufacturers, labs and clinics can now go direct from 3D scan to 3D print without needing to use CAD software, and apply HAPTIKAL® textures with zero effort.
“Labs have always been challenged when using manual CAD software due to the complexities in the modelling workflow” says Dr. Martin Klare, CEO of pro3dure, “HAPTIKAL® removes this barrier, so labs can bring the benefits of textured surfaces to the patients wearing experience”.
“We’re pleased to be working with pro3dure in bringing new benefits to audiology, hearing protection and consumer audio” says Iain Mcleod, CEO of Hearables3D, “and highlights the power and flexibility of our AI technology”.
Find out more on the HAPTIKAL® feature in AutoDesign at the 2022 EUHA conference in Hannover, at pro3dure medical booth #410 and Hearables3D booth #303A. The feature is available from November 2022.
