Why do we need to wear Earplugs

The growing number of outdoor sports participants (surf, ski, bike, swimming, running) in challenging conditions has resulted in an increase of ears’ pathologies in numerous regions of the world.

A growing number of exostosis pathologies

Exostosis is one of the main pathology. Exostosis generates an excessive growth of the bone in the auditory canal, resulting in the loss of hearing and can lead to deafness in the worst cases. In addition, the bone growth allows waste and bacteria to sit in the canal, which in turn increases the case of ear infections.

A study conducted by surgeons

A study conducted by surgeons in the South West of France in 2010 concluded that there was no protective equipment that addressed the specific needs of water sports participants wishing to prevent it, in particular in terms of hearing, balance and fit. Surgery is the only solution to address exostosis once it is installed. There are also evident risks of bone re- growth when no protection is worn afterwards.

Innovation for well-being improvement

In collaboration with engineers, the surgeons developed an ear plugs to prevent from those ears’ pathologies. Using an innovative design made of flexible medical silicone, EQ ear plugs has a breathable Sympatex® membrane, which allows the circulation of air in the ear, and therefore maintaining hearing and balance.
