Disposable supplies are an essential component of maintaining hygiene, cleanliness, and patient comfort when using GSI equipment. In this blog, we will explore different disposable options available for use with GSI devices and discuss the benefits of each. Below are the four most widely used disposable supplies.
Disposable Options for GSI Equipment:

- Can also be used for contralateral reflex testing in GSI’s clinical tympanometry testing equipment.
Cushion Covers - Benefits
