Swim plugs are an excellent solution for individuals prone to ear infections, those who have sensitive ear canals, or those who do not enjoy the sensation of water being trapped in the ear canal. Patients with permanent perforations or holes in the eardrum would also benefit from swim plugs, in order to prevent water from entering the ear canal and middle ear space.
Custom swim plugs are available at Toronto Hearing Consultants. An impression is taken of the ear canal to ensure the swim plugs are molded to the patient’s unique ear, and a tight seal is created to prevent water from seeping in while swimming or showering. Custom swim plugs come in a variety of colours, can be corded or non corded, and are floatable in case of a loss in the pool.
