The low mass of subminiature electronic components probably accounts for the erroneous idea that these components do not experience severe and frequently damaging shock forces. -Trade-offs- between shock protection, vibration isolation and space requirements are particularly difficult in components which have moving parts. In these critical components, the maximum forces due to shock may exceed the minimum operating forces by 10/8. Analysis and measurements of hearing aid shock environments, and the protection of hearing aid transducers from damage due to these shocks, are presented.
