Ear Technology, located in Johnson City, TN manufactures Dry & Store, a conditioning system for all types of hearing instruments - traditional hearing aids as well as cochlear implant equipment,noise maskers, in-ear monitors, (IEMs), and more. Best results are achieved with use every night. The Dry & Store unit removes moisture, dries earwas, kills germs, and deodorizes your hearing instruments. For most users, results include: Fewer repairs, better sound quality, and relief from itchy ears, longer batter life, andfresher, cleaner devices.
Sensaphonics, the technology leader in personal monitoring, tested musicians whose high levels of sweat and body oils cause their aids to fail, found Dry & Store prevents the build-up of residual moisture in their custom earphones, even after 2 months of use. They now recommend Dry & Store desiccant systems for customers with a history of heavy perspiration.
"We're very excited by this product, especially as a preventative for IEM users whose high levels of sweat can actually cause product failure," states Sensaphonics President Michael Santucci, Au.D.
Dr. Schumaier, Ph.D., CCC-A saw first-hand how moisture was wreaking havoc with his patients' hearing aids, in some cases even causing them to fail altogether. His patients were frustrated by poor hearing aid performance, and Dr. Schumaier was just as frustrated by the lack of an effective remedy. So he took it upon himself to"do something about it."
Over a period of several years he developed the technology, was awarded several patents, built and tested several prototypes, and finally, in 1997 began manufacturing and distributing the Dry & Store hearing aid conditioning system.
