How do you develop a headphone cover that is more comfortable, fits better and is cheaper?

Haines Solutions Lab + Flinders Medical Centre, Adelaide

The Radiology team at Flinders Medical Centre were dissatisfied with the headphone covers they were buying. Apart from being expensive and uncomfortable, they were also made of a thin plastic and they kept falling off as the elastic was not tight enough.

The Haines Solutions Lab team got to work and developed new headphone covers that have:

  • thicker, tighter elastic so they would not fall off

  • thicker, soft material so they are more comfortable for the patient

  • and, are more than 30% cheaper than their current offering

Haines® were able to provide samples to Flinders within weeks and only weeks later Flinders Radiology were using the Haines® Disposable Headphone Covers.
