A SIMPLE SOUND SOLUTION

Pro Ears MRI Safe hearing protection

A tight fit can lead to anxiety. Lower noise can help reduce anxiety

Pro Ears MRI Safe hearing protection is designed for patients during stressful and claustrophobic scan procedures. Hearing protection can help patients relax. The noise cancelling MRI-safe headphones are 29db rated for superior hearing protection. A relaxed patient can help reduce the need for re-scans, call backs or sedation medicine.

Pro Ears have been tested to ensure they are MRI Safe “a medical device that poses no known hazards resulting from exposure to any MRI environment. MRI Safe medical devices are composed of materials that are electrically nonconductive, nonmetallic, and nonmagnetic”. Because these headphones need to be non-magnetic and there has to be no ferro magnetic materials inside of them they are not made the usual way. Not all plastics, rubbers and foams are nonferrous magnetic and can leave an artifact in the scan resulting in a need for a rescan.

Getting a good scan is essential. Some plastics can leave artifacts requiring a second scan

MRI scans can last for 15 minutes up to an hour and a half. That is sufficient time to cause hearing loss if not adequately protected. It is also a long time to wear hearing protection that is not comfortable. Many people find ear plugs uncomfortable due to sensitive ear canals. Other ear muffs can squeeze the head sufficiently to cause headaches after a short period of time. Pro Ears are designed to minimize these issues.
