Lantos Technologies, is working to commercialize 3D digital scanner capable of measuring ear canal shape and tissue compliance. This method will eliminate the uncertainties associated with manual fits, greatly improving the performance of custom-made ear products. This technology enables audiologists to eliminate the uncomfortable, messy and error-prone technique used to generate impressions of the ear canal.
This company is a spinout of the 2008 project, Digital Ear Canal Scanner.
