Roll-On Adhesive to Keep Hearing Aids in Place

Occasionally, BTE hearing instruments need a little help staying in place on the side of a patient’s head. Traditional methods of securing BTE hearing instruments firmly in place may involve the use of oval, double back adhesive pads or 3M double stick contour tape that is pre-cut into the shape of a BTE.  One alternative and interesting product available through Oaktree Products is an adhesive called IT STAYS. This product is a roll-on body adhesive that may be used to hold any article in place against the skin.  For use with BTE hearing instruments, simply roll the adhesive onto the skin behind the ear and press the body of the BTE in place. IT STAYS is pliable and moves with the body.  It washes off the skin easily with water without leaving any type of stain.  Any residue on the hearing instrument may be easily removed with a disinfectant towelette. The adhesive is available in a 2oz roll-on bottle for about $10. Keep in mind that the image shown above of IT STAYS may not be a true representation of the current look of the bottle that you may receive; the important point is that the packaged product is the same adhesive.

    Dr A.U.: Do you know of anyone who has tried this to secure their Auditory Brainstem Implant (ABI) coil onto their scalp?

    [This is a constant problem for ABI users (and the people who have magnetless CI’s), as magnets in their implants play havoc with the MRI, both for physically moving them, and also distorting the magnetic flux, introducing artifacts into the scan.]
