Docs Proplugs Earplugs – UK Store

Docs Proplugs was founded in 1977 by Dr. Robert Scott, an avid water sports fan and practitioner. After retiring from general practice in 1985, Dr. Scott continue conducting research on ear problems that affect water sports practitioners. He found out that water and exposure to cold temperature have drastic effects on the ears.

Dr. Scott travelled across the globe while studying such ear problems in water sports, eventually leading him to inventing Docs Proplugs. He was among the first to suggest that cold condition is the culprit causing exostosis (bony growth in the ears of water sports athletes, common among divers and surfers). These days, Dr. Scott frequents world-class water sports events offering ear examinations for free.

International Aquatics Trade, Inc. distributes Docs Proplugs to selected surf and dive shops, pharmacies and ENT specialist. The distribution is located in Santa Cruz, California and is owned by Dr. Scott’s daughter Brenda Scott-Rogers. She is a former women’s world-class surfer and still actively surfing to this day.

The memory properties of Proplugs enables them to fit properly in your auricle, creating a watertight seal.

Consistent usage of Proplugs help prevent ear infections, exostosis, ruptured eardrum and hearing loss due to high-frequency sound.
