The Pro Ear mask is not just another mask but is indeed an entirely new concept in diving safety and comfort. When it comes to eardrum safety, protection and comfort, there is literally nothing remotely comparable to its revolutionary patented design. The ProEar completely seals off your ears from the surrounding water and air is introduced with the exhalation from your nose. Mask, silicone ear cups, equalization tubes and your whole respiratory system become a coordinated closed-circuit equalized air pressure system. The result is equal pressure inside and outside the ear drum, making diving much more enjoyable.
Diving related ear problems are universal, irrespective whether the diver is a beginner or a professional. To counter the pressure induced discomfort, the Pro Ear mask offsets the ill effect and increases the enjoyment of time underwater.
The ear cups cover the ears forming a water tight seal. Air is allowed into the ear cups when exhaling through the nose into the mask and then through the thin tubing (which mimic the Eustachian tubes) which runs from the mask skirt into the ear cups while passing through the non return valves in the tubes. This allows the air space in the ear cups to equalize according to ambient pressure. The mask, ear cups and indeed the entire respiratory system become a closed circuit equalized air pressure system.
The Pro Ear mask will take a little time to get used to, with its silicone ear cups, equalization tubes and strap configuration.It is highly recommend that a Pro Ear mask beginner should try this mask in a pool or controlled environment before taking it on a dive odyssey
|Benefits from Pro Ear|
|Ear Pain||Pressures cannot be equalized and the eardrum is forced inward causing considerable pain, bleeding into middle ear and sometimes rupture of the eardrum.||Preliminary results from multiple dives indicate easier pressure equalization. Possibly explained by lack of stimulation of tympanic membrane and the resultant middle-ear secretions.|
|Infection or inflmmation of outer ear canal||Exposure to water dilutes the ear's protective lining and exposes it to infection. Polluted water entering the ear canal carries bacteria and irritant chemicals.||Absolute protection from water and pollutant entry will provide effective prevention.|
|Middle ear inflammation||Inflammation due to poor drainage and collection of fluids in the middle ear and Eustachian tube.||Lack of tympanic membrane stimulation may obviate problems with drainage of middle-ear secretions.|
|Dizziness (vertigo) and loss of direction||Due to caloric stimulation or to damage to the inner ear which affects balance.||Avoidance of cold water stimulation of the tympanic membrane, which produces the vertigo.|
|Build up of bony deposits in the outer ear||The body's mechanism for protecting the eardrum from the adverse effects external trauma like pressure, cold, etc.||Avoidance of cold water stimulation of the external ear canal will undoubtedly prevent exostoses entirely.|
