3D Printed Hairclip Helps the Deaf “Hear"

CAD Drafting OutsourcingIn a previous blog post, we talked about a 3D printed replacement ear for a Chinese girl who was born with a defect. This comes with a long line of news reports that show just how amazing this new technology is. It’s almost unbelievable how far things are going in the medical field. 3D printing is improving quality of life as well as, in some instances, saving lives.

Today, we bring to you a story about 3D printing helping the deaf hear. A 3D printed hair clip is helping those that aren’t able to hear at all hear again. According to 3dprint.com, “The device itself looks like a simple hairclip that lights up, but it actually is a powerful sensor that translates a wide variety of sounds into vibrations and pulsing lights. Different types of sounds are translated into different types of vibrations, so Ontenna actually allows the wearer to experience sound, albeit in a completely different way than the hearing do. The clip picks up sounds between 30 decibels up to 90 decibels and translates them into 256 different variations of vibrations and light patterns where the rhythm, pattern and the loudness can all be conveyed to the wearer.”

The hair clip, called Ontenna, is much safer than surgeries used to repair hearing damage and other issues that lead to hearing loss. For those that have hearing aids, this device will be a great alternative as well! Anyone who wears a hearing aid knows how uncomfortable and unreliable they can be. They’re difficult to use and can be very expensive, and even then they don’t always work well. This hair clip will be easy to use and according to 3dprint.com, “Rather than experiencing sound through the ears, Ontenna is clipped on the wearer’s hair where it acts similarly to a cat’s whiskers, so the wearer can actually feel and see sound.”
