Sensear wins 2008 DuPont Innovation Award

Sensear  has won the Medical and Healthcare category of the 2008 DuPont Innovation Awards. The biennial Australian and New Zealand awards recognise innovation and advances in industry, science, the environment and agriculture.

Sensear Managing Director Justin Miller said that this was the third award that the Perth-based company had picked up this year. The company also won the 2008 Best Newcomer Safety in Action Award in Melbourne and the 2008 Western Australian Information Technology and Telecommunications Awards (WAITTA) Innovation category.

"Our product has the potential to dramatically reduce the incidence of Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) in the workplace".

"These awards recognise that our technology can provide a safer environment for people working in high noise industries" he said.

Sensear has developed an electronic ear plug which allows face to face, mobile phone and two-way radio communication. An ear muff version will be released later this year.

"Previously people working in noisy environments could wear hearing protection but they could not effectively communicate with each other.

"This has been a huge impediment to productivity and safety," said Miller.

The electronic ear plug uses technology based on sophisticated algorithms which suppresses industrial and other very loud noise to a safe level but allow speech to remain clear and audible.

Justin Miller said that NIHL was a major health and safety issue in our workplaces particularly for people working in transport, construction, manufacturing and mining industries.

"It takes only two minutes exposure to very loud noise before permanent hearing damage takes place.

Since the electronic ear plug first became commercially available in March, Sensear has secured sales in Australia, Europe and the US.

In recognition of Sensear's innovative technology and its world class design leading industry organizations have bestowed on Sensear the following awards:
