Otoscan is a comprehensive ear scanning solution that provides a new, safe and easy way to make digital impressions for custom in-the-ear pieces such as earmolds and hearing aids. The scanning software transforms ear scans into digital image files that are ready to be used in 3D modeling production.
In addition to the validated patient benefits, we will review the overall operational and business benefits that Otoscan can provide to a clinic. For instance, a new workflow to the patient evaluation path could lead to increased business efficiencies and patient satisfaction. Compared to the traditionally passive silicone impression process, digital ear scanning could be converted to an active counseling tools that could help optimize the hearing aid selection and purchase process
As we get further into the course, participants will get to know the different hardware pieces that make up the Otoscan application including the scanner, the scanner cradle, a dedicated Otoscan laptop and a practice ear. In addition, the participants will gain an understanding of how the different Otoscan lasers and cameras work together to create a scan and how these components influence scanning technique. Scanning workflow will also be discussed.
In addition to a demo of live ear scanning, a brief overview of the Gamified in-depth training software and the applications used to scan and order products will be reviewed.
