The Dry & Store family of products benefit all types of hearing instruments - traditional hearing aids as well as cochlear implant equipment, noise maskers, ear monitors, and more. Best results are achieved with in-home use every night. While you sleep, it removes moisture, dries earwax, and deodorizes your hearing instruments. The Global model even kills germs, thanks to its UV-C germicidal lamp. For most users, results include: Fewer repairs, better sound quality, relief from itchy ears, longer battery life, fresh and clean hearing aids.
If you have ever experienced fuzzy or distorted sound, weakness, static, intermittency, short battery life, or even all-out failure of your hearing aids, and you've confirmed that the batteries are good, there's a good chance that the culprit is either moisture or earwax. In fact, manufacturers report that as many as one-half of the aids they receive for repair are malfunctioning due to moisture or earwax. Thanks to Dry & Store, you can save yourself the time, expense, and aggravation of those preventable repairs.
About HearUSA (hearusa.com)
At HearUSA, you will receive more than just a hearing aid—you’ll receive a lifetime of better hearing. Here is what you can expect from our Totalcare Program, designed to provide you with the best in quality, service and value.
4 watts UV-C (@ 254nm, which is the peak germicidal wavelength) in the Global II model produces over 400 joules/m2 of UV-C energy.
For comparison purposes, a 90% kill on staphyllococcus aureus bacteria requires only 26 j/m2.
Elimination of this flora from hearing aids can significantly reduce itching and the reintroduction of infection-causing bacteria into the ear canal. To the user, this means less itching and irritation, and fewer recurring infections of the external ear canal. Note: The UV-C lamp is a surface sanitizer only, and it has little to no penetrating power. This means that it is not damaging to plastics or earmolds. (Germicidal lamps are not to be confused with sunlamps or blacklight lamps, for while those are also ultraviolet lamps, the UV produced by a sunlamp or blacklight is of longer wavelength and is not useful for germicidal applications.)
