SlimTip: Raising the Bar for Customized BTE and CRT Fittings

Stfa, Switzerland, May 2, 2008 For customized BTE and CRT fittings with superior cosmetics and secure retention, SlimTip from Phonak is the comfortable and durable solution. SlimTips small custom-made earpiece is a durable alternative to the standard mass-produced domes found on micro BTEs and BTEs fitted with SlimTubes.

While many individuals are content with the fast, comfortable fit offered by BTEs and Canal Receiver Technology instruments with standard closed or open quick-fit domes, a growing number of customers prefer a truly customized SlimTip solution because of its outstanding durability, excellent retention in the ear and hypoallergenic properties. With SlimTip from Phonak, users now have an optimum mix of comfort, cosmetics, convenience and retention when fitting micro BTE and CRT devices.

SlimTip is available in two different styles both featuring the unique FlexFit' system, the advanced connection system between SlimTip and SlimTube/CRT xS Receiver which allows full 360 rotation and flexible positioning so the device can rest comfortably behind the ear. SlimTip H is a hollow shell type version and features a cavity vent that accommodates any venting requirement, from none to completely open. SlimTip S is a solid earpiece offering vent options from zero to 2.5 mm diameter.

Phonak has also developed a new SlimTip removal tool to be used whenever removing SlimTip from the SlimTube or external receiver. The FlexFit connection system and the new SlimTip removal tool make SlimTip attachment and removal a snap. Gentle pressure with the tool on the canal tip is all it takes to release the SlimTip and remove it without undue stress.
