The Voice of Experience

Welcome to 2022 and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to you!

We are thrilled to be back and excited at the thought of what 2022 holds in store for us all. Let’s face it, surely we can’t have any more bushfires, floods or pandemics… can we? What we do know is if these devastating events occur again that we can withstand anything that comes our way and together we continue to find new, improved and creative solutions for patients.
After 40 years, the original TEP technique and valved silicone prosthesis method developed by Mark I. Singer, M.D. and Eric D Blom, Ph.D. remains largely unchanged. In fact, it is still recognised throughout the world as the leading standard for voice restoration following total laryngectomy – as many studies in prestigious medical journals have confirmed. The Blom-Singer voice restoration products have benefitted thousands of patients worldwide. As their exclusive distributor for the past 25 years, we are proud to bring you the most extensive selection of styles and sizes in the industry. Having taken the time to understand patient needs, the following options are now available as standard options so we really do have a solution for all patients.


Need to manage leakage around the voice prosthesis? 

One of our most popular products to help is the Large Esophageal Flange (LEF). This VP provides a seal and also enables downsizing from a wider diameter prosthesis to a smaller diameter. Due to its popularity, we keep a full range of sizes in stock.
Do your patients have an enlarged puncture tract, a tear-drop or irregularly shaped puncture?
More recently the Larger Esophageal and Tracheal flange (LF) combination Voice Prosthesis has been proving most effective when there is a snug flange-to-flange seal against the wall surfaces.

Is peripheral and central leakage an issue?
It may be pressure?


Our Increased Resistant (-IR) VP is designed to be used in patients when the conventional voice prostheses opens intermittently with fluctuations in esophageal pressures, resulting in air ingestion and/or leakage. 
If your patient is also experiencing peripheral leakage we have a VP for that too. The Large Esophageal Increased Resistant (-LEIR) VP has both IR for central leakage and LEF for leakage around the VP.
Do you have a patient that fits between sizes?

If so, we have a Standard Indwelling (-SL) VPavailable in one millimeter incremental lengths for comfort and a more precise TE puncture fit.
Need an Occluded Valve? 
Remember our TEP OCCLUDER comes as an Indwelling with a Large Esophageal Flange
(-LETO) as standard!
