EarWell Components

The EarWell Infant Ear Correction System manufactured by Becon Medical consists of four key components:  the posterior shell and posterior conformer, the helical rim retractors, the conchal former, and the anterior shell.  (Note the arrow pointing to the posterior conformer within the posterior shell.)

Prior to application a rim of hair is shaved around the ear to establish a stable adhesive footprint.  The posterior shell is then affixed over the ear with the posterior conformer resting behind the ear in the retroauricular sulcus.  The conformer creates the superior crus as a continuation of the antihelical fold.  Retractors are then attached to the helical rim to deepen the scaphal hollow and to establsh helical rim shape.  The conchal former is then added to the concha to deepen the hollow and eliminate prominence.
