For your convenience two types of ear plugs are available for purchase at all PENTA locations.
Doc’s Pro Plugs
- Hypo-allergenic swim plugs
- Provide a watertight seal during water activities
- Available in pink or blue
In order to purchase Doc’s Pro Plugs, the child’s ear will need to be sized by an audiologist at PENTA to ensure an appropriate fit.
- Younger children who are mostly “surface swimmers” and aren’t as adventurous in the water usually find the Doc’s Pro Plugs a suitable choice for water protection.
- Often, older children who dive or swim more than one foot below the surface of the water require a more advanced form of water protection.
Custom Ear Plugs
- Keep an older, more active child’s ear dry during swimming
- Made of silicone material
- Create an exact replica of a child’s ear.
- An impression is taken of the child’s ear and is sent to the manufacturer for processing.
- A variety of color options are available including neon colors, stripes, polka dots, and multiple colors swirled together for a more personal feel.
An additional water precaution available is a Swim Band-It
- A neoprene headband which is fully-adjustable with a Velcro closure
- Available is several sizes and colors
- Can be used in conjunction with ear plugs for better retention during swimming.
