Patient Evaluation for Earmold Selection

The hearing aid fitter must evaluate each patient prior to material and style selection, and must address each of these considerations:

Identity
Who is your patient -- an active child or a sedentary, perhaps senile, senior?

Dexterity
What can the patient handle? What are the limitations?

Ear texture
What material and/or styles can improve --or adversely affect -- ease of insertion?

Hearing aid gain
What degree of seal is necessary to contain the hearing aid's output?

Acoustics
What are the amplification objectives of the fitting?

Toxicity
Are there any known allergies to plastics?

Cosmetics
What is the appropriate color for the earmold and/or tubing?

Vanity
What limits are imposed by the patient with regard to acceptability?

Adaptability
Do you anticipate an easy fitting and adjustment period, or do you need to allow for potentially numerous earmold modifications after the delivery?
