Swim moulds policy and collection information

Swim moulds policy

  • You have requested a swim mould or a set of swim moulds
  • In order for you to be fitted with swim moulds an impression needs to be taken of your ear.
  • This involves putting a small sponge into your ear and filling your ear up with impression material in order to obtain the shape of your ear.
  • If you suffer from Tinnitus, when the impression material is in your ear the Tinnitus may increase in volume, however when the impression material is taken out it should return back to its original level.
  • It takes approximately 2-3 weeks for the moulds to be made by the laboratory.
  • We will send you a letter when they have been made with instructions on what to do to organise payment and collection of the swim moulds.
  • The swim moulds cost £20 per one.
  • Please note swim moulds are not 100% waterproof.
