A recent study by the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit has linked the force of roller coaster acceleration and a common ear injury-Ear Baratrauma-that is caused by dramatic changes in air pressure resulting in ear pain and even in extreme cases, hearing loss. This is similar to the effects of airplane cabin pressure changes. There is a remedy, EarPlanes, the pressure regulating earplugs used by millions of air travelers to prevent these ear problems during flight.

A new study by the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit has linked the force of roller coaster acceleration and a common ear injury-Ear Barotrauma-that is caused by quick changes in pressure between the outside environment and the pressure in the middle ear space. This condition is similar to that suffered by air travelers due to the dramatic changes in cabin air pressure during flight. Ear Barotrauma, at its worse, can lead to temporary hearing loss and more commonly, dizziness, ear pain and the sensation of “popping”.

But, roller coaster riders do not have to worry because there is a very simple remedy known for years by flight attendants and air travelers-EarPlanes-the pressure regulating earplug developed by Cirrus Healthcare and the House Ear Institute-the leading institute in hearing research and ear surgery. While originally developed for flight, EarPlanes will work as effectively to prevent ear problems caused by roller coasters rides. EarPlanes has provided safe relief for millions of people since it was introduced to the market over 15 years ago.

Because of its effectiveness, EarPlanes is the best selling earplug in the world and is easily found in the ear care section of all pharmacies, drug chains, mass merchants, grocery, and airport shops. EarPlanes is available in two sizes- one for adults and one for kids or people with smaller ears.
