The Complyâ„¢ Story
www.complyfoam.com, 21 Feb 2012 [cached]
Comply™ Foam Tips, Earbud Enhancers and Earphones are manufactured and sold by Hearing Components, a 3M spinoff founded in 1990 by Robert Oliveira.
An inventor with a PhD in biochemistry from Iowa State University, Dr. Oliveira holds 15 patents and is an expert on the human ear canal. His research, which he has presented worldwide, demonstrates that the shape and opening of the ear canal changes as the position of the mouth changes, making dynamic memory foam the perfect material for earphone tips.
After pursuing postdoctoral work in bioimmunochemistry and aging at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Dr. Oliveira worked at 3M for 18 years, developing products in biochemical diagnostics and disposable surgical products. He led the 3M cochlear implants business for five years. He has been an elected member of the board of directors of the Hearing Industries Association and the American Auditory Society.

A brief professional biographical sketch Robert J. Oliveira, Ph.D., is the founder and president of Hearing Components, Inc. Oakdale, MN, as well as a biochemist and an inventor. Hearing Components conducts basic research on the ear canal, and uses the results to improve personal hearing devices, e.g., hearing aids, cell phones, earsets, stethoscopes, etc. Hearing Components designs, manufactures and markets, business to business, Ad·hear™ Cerumen Guards, Comply™ Canal™ Tips, Comply™ Soft Wraps and Comply™ Snap Tips, which are proprietary replaceable products. These products improve the reliability and performance of hearing devices. The National Institutes of Health have awarded Dr. Oliveira four Small Business Innovative Research grants (~$1.75 Million) for basic research to define the activity and geometry of ear canals and related product development to improve the physical fitting of hearing aids, earplugs, and instant fit starter-hearing devices. Recent research, using magnetic resonance imaging, sequential ear impressions and laser scans, quantifies ear canal size changes with changing mouth position, the main cause for physical fit problems with hearing aids. Dr. Oliveira has over 12 patents and has published over 30 articles or chapters on topics related to the human ear canal, and has given numerous invited presentations internationally. He has been an elected member of the Board of Directors of the Hearing Industries Association and is his second term as an elected Board Director for the American Auditory Society. His background includes a doctorate in biochemistry from Iowa State University and post-doctoral work in bio/immunochemistry and aging at the Oak Ridge National Laboratories. He worked at 3M for 18 years where he developed products in biochemical diagnostics and disposable surgical products and led their Cochlear Implant business for five years. In 1990 he resigned from 3M to launch Hearing Components as a stand-alone independent business.
