Sanibel Supply® introduces the EARturtleTM

On September 1, Sanibel Supply® introduced a new disposable ear coupler for auditory brainstem response (ABR)testing in infants: the EARturtleTM.

Resembling a turtle shell in shape and form, the EARturtleTM is placed over the baby’s ear for non-intrusive ABR testing.

The EARturtleTM is distributed by Hearing Screening Associates (HSA) in the US.

What does the EARturtleTM have to offer?

The main benefit of the EARturtleTM is its flexibility, as it can be used with the RadioEar IP30 and Sanibel Supply® EARturtleTM adapter and similar transducer couplers. Thus, it can be used with various equipment for ABR testing.

Jakob Skovgaard, Business Unit Manager, Sanibel Supply®, comments:

“Our goal is to make it easy for users of diagnostic hearing equipment to acquire quality consumables. With the EARturtleTM, we offer a consumable that can help to make ABR newborn hearing screening a more widely adopted discipline, which is very important in our eyes.”

Other benefits worth of note

1) Safe to apply on sensitive skin

The EARturtleTM complies with ISO 10993-1:2018, ensuring it is safe to apply on the sensitive skin of babies.

2) Equivalent RETSPLs to other disposable ear couplers

The EARturtleTM RETSPL values are equivalent to the EarCupTM and other known disposable ear couplers.

3) Equivalent performance to other disposable ear couplers

The EARturtleTM has a relatively flat frequency response in the range from 350 Hz to 5.5 kHz, which is equivalent to the EarCupTM and other known disposable ear couplers.
