To address the need for a safer and more effective solution to treating impacted earwax, SafKan Health developed an automated and FDA cleared ear cleaning device called OtoSet. The company will provide Beltone's nationwide network with the opportunity to use the service.
In a quick cleaning cycle, liquid flow is directed from solution containers through disposable ear tips and towards the walls of the ear canals to break down earwax. Continuous micro-suction draws the earwax and liquid back through the ear tips and into disposable waste containers for an easy, safe, effective, and mess-free procedure.
"Excessive earwax is one of the main causes of damage to hearing aids. Access to care for earwax management can be difficult when so many patients have to be referred out to specialists. OtoSet enables more patients to be treated at the initial point of care," said Sahil Diwan, SafKan Health's Co-Founder & CEO. "We're excited to partner with Beltone and work together to provide patients with the best hearing care."
"We're happy to be able to expand Beltone's ear cleaning services to patients through our partnership with OtoSet by SafKan Health as another solution to treating excessive earwax," said Mike Halloran, President of Beltone. "We look forward to continuing to provide patients with the highest standard of care through innovative service offerings such as this in addition to the amazing benefits Beltone hearing aids provide."
