3D ear scanning for making custom-fit in-ear devices

September 3, 2018 | Case Study

Lantos Technologies has developed a membrane-based 3D ear scanning system to produce custom-fit in-ear devices such as earbuds and industrial hearing protection sets. The company’s 3D scanner can capture data from the outer wall all the way down to the eardrum and create 3D ear models in real time. It collects over one million data points to make a digital map of the ear in about two minutes. With the 3D scanned data, it is possible to produce custom fit in-ear devices using traditional or additive manufacturing methods.
