EarPlanes AdultsRegular price $8.99
Adult sized EarPlanes for air travel, car rides and roller coasters. Approved by flight attendants and recommended by doctors, Ear Planes are hypoallergenic and made with pressure regulators inside the latex free silicone which slows down rapid pressure changes that causes discomfort. In addition to relieving air pressure discomfort, Ear Planes also act as noise reduction.
It's a safe, and drug-free solution for a comfortable takeoff and landing.
Available in the two sizes Adults, Kids & Smaller Ears
Ear Planes Features:
- Noise Reduction Rating 20 Decibels
EarPlanes consist of two elements: a hypoallergenic silicone ear plug and a ceramic pressure regulator. The silicone earplug has four circumferential rings which provide an airtight seal between the product and ear canal. The ceramic element is a controlled porosity filter, one end of which is exposed to the external cabin pressure, with the opposite end exposed to the sealed chamber formed when the ear plug is inserted in the ear. Thus, as the cabin air pressure changes, a pressure differential is created across the ceramic filter, thereby causing air to flow through the filter. The filter acts as an impedance to the flow of air into and out of the ear canal. Discomfort is caused by blockage and/or swelling of a passengers Eustachian tube(s). The air pressure changes induced by the aircraft's descent are too rapid for the blocked Eustachian tubes to adjust properly. However, EarPlanes, provide an equal but opposite impedance on the exterior of the middle ear, allowing relief. Discomfort is reduced because the air pressure difference on the exterior and interior of the middle ear is lessened allowing the Eustachian tubes to function more normally.
Air Travel Ear Tips:
- Take a decongestant 24 hours before flying to keep air passages and ears clear.
- Chew gum or drink fluids through altitude changes during flight to equalize the pressure in the middle ear.
- Use a set of EarPlanes™ for take-offs and landings or altitude changes during the flight to equalize the pressure in the middle ear.
- Hold the nose and swallow to alleviate ear pressure in the middle ear.
- Use ¼ percent Neo-Synephrine nasal spray shortly after boarding the aircraft and again 45 minutes before the aircraft is due to land to keep the nasal passages open.
- Try not to fly when you have a cold or upper respiratory infection, as you are more likely to experience ear problems.
