IMPORTANT!
Before each use, clean the tip with soap and water and dry it gently, checking that it is properly inflated and that there are no stretch marks on the inflated surface.

How to use

1 – Gently pull back the ear

to straighten the auditory cavity and improve access of the device inside the ear. (Generally recommended by otolaryngologists).

2 – Insert the tip inside the ear

Its length is calculated not to touch the eardrum, and the bulge at its base is to prevent the device from going too deep.

3 – Inflate the tip by pressing on the pump.

You do not need a lot of pressure, just let the walls of the inflated tip adhere to those of the ear canal.

4 – Pull the device out of the ear

Pull the device out of the ear while holding it inflated so that, by abrasion, dirt or water is removed out of the ear.

5 – Rinse the device with water after each use

Rinse the device with water after each use and dry it in case you want to repeat the cleaning process again.

6 – Clean the device

At the end of use, clean the device with soap and water and dry it.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

Important!

Do not use solvents, disinfectants, alcoholic bases, or acids for cleaning. The use of emollient oils could compromise the molecular structure of the tip. Do not put in washing machines or dishwashers. Do not use abrasives or any type of product that could compromise the life of the device.

Clean the device only with soap and water and dry it gently before and after each use.

Always store the device inside its case and in any case away from sunlight or heat sources

Whenever you disassemble the device, do not reassemble it wet to avoid the formation of
mold inside it.

Over time, the tip of the device could physiologically deflate due to a loss of pressure inside the device or due to changes in external pressure (e.g. sea / mountain).

This can be reestablished by detaching and reassembling the tip on the device (see: 1.2) or by slightly lifting a flap of the bell-shaped base of the tip to allow new air to enter inside the device and restore
the correct pressure.

SPECIAL WARNINGS

Important!

Due to the material, size and thickness of the tip, it should not be overinflated, pulled or subjected to excessive mechanical, thermal or chemical stresses. This is to avoid compromising the life and proper functioning of the device.

Do not use the silicone tip when marks or stretch marks appear on the inflatable surface. These marks anticipate an imminent rupture that may occur through tearing or bursting.

Keep out of the reach of children.

Do not use on infants. Do not use on children under 9 years of age.

Use only and exclusively for cleaning the ear canal.

Avoid improper use of the device.

Use only after medical advice in the event of ear problems or diseases.

Particular care is recommended when using it by elderly and/or particularly sensitive persons.

The tip must be replaced when the signs referred to in 3.7 appear or in the event of significant deformations or other problems.

PRODUCT DISPOSAL

Important!

Always refer to the disposal rules of your municipality of residence.

The EarBuddy device can be easily disassembled into three parts: the platinized silicone (LSR)
tip, the colored polypropylene (PP) central connector and the elastomeric SEBS inflation
pump. These three components can be recycled if taken to the appropriate collection points
in your community.

The case is made of polypropylene (PP), is recyclable and should be disposed of in the plastic container.

If your municipality does not provide for the recycling of silicone and/or elastomer SEBS
parts, it is recommended that these components be disposed of in the unsorted waste
container.
