CLAIMED as a ‘world first’ in instant fitted custom calibrated hearing protection, SonoCustom will be on show at Sonomax Australia's stand at Safety In Action and Materials & Manual Handling from March 21-23.
The SonoCustom is a cost effective, comfortable and reusable earpiece that is custom-fitted in less than 15 minutes and adapted, by a computer software process, to the right protection level for each employee.
The device, which has a silicone-inflated seal, will not allow more than 80 decibels of noise to reach the wearer's eardrums but will allow the human voice and other important, safe level, sounds to filter through.
Because comfort and precise protection levels are the most important factors when choosing whether to use hearing protection devices (HPDs), Canada-based Sonomax Hearing Healthcare developed the comfortable and practical SonoCustom.
An HPD that provides too much protection is just as inappropriate as one that does not protect sufficiently. Over protection impacts on the user's ability to communicate or hear what is important. Since every person's ear is different and should be treated uniquely, each SonoCustom HPD is tested within the worker's ear for a calibrated personal protection level.
See a SonoCustom fitted by Sonomax for yourself at stand I37 during Safety In Action and Materials & Manual Handling, which runs from March 21 to 23, 2005, at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
