Redux Hearing Aid Care System: Say Goodbye to Moisture

Hearing aids are an essential tool for those with hearing loss, allowing them to communicate and function in their day-to-day lives. But like any electronic device, moisture can do some serious damage to their inner workings. That’s where Redux comes in. The Redux Hearing Aid Care System is a revolutionary solution that offers a quick, effective, and reliable way to remove moisture from hearing aids. 

Here we’re going to delve into the workings of the Redux system, its benefits, and why it is a game changer for hearing aid users.

The Challenge of Moisture in Hearing Aids

Even with regular cleaning, hearing aids can suffer from moisture buildup. This moisture, whether from sweat, humidity, or accidental exposure to water, can cause the hearing aids to malfunction or degrade in sound quality over time. In fact, moisture-related issues account for a big percentage of hearing aid repairs.

The Redux Solution

You might be wondering what Redux actually does. Put simply, it’s an innovative drying system designed to remove moisture from inside hearing aids quickly and effectively. Redux uses a combination of vacuum drying and humidity level measurement to remove moisture from hearing aids. The vacuum drying process lowers the boiling point of water, allowing it to evaporate at lower temperatures. The system then measures the humidity level to ensure that all moisture has been removed.

Benefits of the Redux System

Redux offers several benefits for hearing aid users.

It's quick and effective: The system dries hearing aids within 15 minutes, shorter than an episode of your favorite show!

It's safe: Redux uses a low temperature to vaporize liquid, ensuring that the device is not damaged during the process.

The results are verified: The system provides real-time measurements of moisture removal, allowing users to see the amount of moisture removed from their device.

Who Can Benefit from Redux?

Anyone who uses hearing aids can benefit from the Redux system. Whether you are an active individual who sweats a lot, lives in a humid environment (like our Charlotte summers), or have accidentally exposed your hearing aids to water, Redux can help restore your hearing aids to their optimal condition.

What are the signs of moisture in hearing aids?

Common signs of moisture damage in hearing aids are:

  • Sound fades in and out.
  • Sound is distorted.
  • Static or crackling can be heard.
  • Sound cuts out when there are loud noises.
  • The device functions sporadically.
  • Evidence of battery corrosion is present.

Other Uses of Redux

While Redux is primarily used for drying hearing aids, it can also be used to dry other electronic devices such as AirPods, implants, and even cell phones and tablets. This versatility makes Redux a valuable tool for maintaining a wide range of devices.
