SafKan Health and ReSound announce that they have entered into a partnership to make the FDA-cleared OtoSet® Ear Cleaning System available through ReSound Accelerate, a customer engagement program with more than 1,000 active members. Beginning in October of this year, the OtoSet Ear Cleaning System will be available on the ReSound Accelerate MarketPlace, allowing members to purchase the system at a discount, or redeem FlexPoints to receive free of charge.
How OtoSet® works:
In a quick cleaning cycle, irrigation 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 water back through the ear tips and into disposable waste containers for “an easy, safe, effective, and mess-free procedure.” Click here to view a brief demo video.
- OtoSet® is “the first FDA-cleared ear cleaning device clinically proven to remove mild-to-severe earwax impactions quickly and safely,” according to the company;
- OtoSet® combines and controls two methods of earwax removal, irrigation with continuous micro-suction;
- OtoSet® allows hearing healthcare providers to “reduce referrals to otolaryngologists, creating further trust with patients and better service.”
“Excessive or impacted earwax is one of the main causes of damage to hearing aids. Our OtoSet enables hearing healthcare providers to treat more patients at the initial point of care,” said Sahil Diwan, SafKan Health’s Co-Founder & CEO. “We look forward to this partnership with ReSound and to working with Accelerate members to provide patients with the best hearing care.”
“There is nothing better than watching someone put on their hearing aids for the first time and seeing their face light up as they hear sounds they perhaps haven’t heard in a very long time,” said John Gallagher, Vice President, ReSound Marketing and Strategy. “There’s just something magical when a positive outcome is tangible. When I first saw OtoSet being demonstrated, it captured that same magic, with person after person immediately seeing the beneficial result of the cleaning. We believe in the power of partnership and are very excited to join with SafKan Health and their dedicated team to bring this solution to our Accelerate members, and more importantly to the patients we all serve.”
