Receiver in the Canal, are probably one of the most popular solutions for most hearing impaired patients, these products are usually sleek design and can be very small when compared to other models of hearing aids. The design consists of a module that sits behind the ear, with a wire leading to a receiver (speaker) that sits within the ear canal directing sound straight towards the eardrum.
In many cases, a custom made mould of the patient’s ear is made to hold the receiver in place. Another name that this style of device is commonly referred to is RITE (Receiver In The Ear). This term refers to an open fitted receiver in the ear that has a small dome usually made of a soft rubber or silicone, designed to be as minimally invasive as possible for the client.
