Gruv Buttons™ are ergonomically designed to improve RIC-style hearing aid manageability and effectiveness because users gain better access to and control over their receivers.
We know that when the receivers are inserted deeply enough, patients enjoy:
Optimal hearing and understanding
Hearing aids that are more secure (purging fear of loss)
Reduced feedback, and
Hearing aids that are less noticeable (because wire closer to the head)
And, of course, you and the industry enjoy:
Happier, more successful patients
An enhanced reputation for RIC-style hearing aids, and
An enhanced reputation for the hearing aid industry

SoloGruv™ has just one well-formed fingertip groove for a consistent wrist-position.
TrueGruv™, which has four fingertip grooves, was named with the four cardinal directions which are directly across from or at right angles to each other (true north, true south, true east and true west.) It accommodates a variety of wrist-positions while still providing well-formed fingertip grooves.
WheelGruv™, with eight fingertip grooves, resembles a wagon wheel and offers the most versatility for users who really change up their wrist-positions.
