At-home device removes earwax safely
Recurrent cerumen or earwax impaction is the leading cause of treatable hearing loss globally, with approximately 15 % of the population suffering from it. Variable repercussions range from ear pain to speech disorders and depression. Treatment is uncomfortable for the patient, involving complex and long sessions, while appointments for specialists are difficult to book. The EarWay project allows safe, speedy and effective cerumen extraction at home through EarWay®HomeCare kit as well as by professionals with EarWay®Pro which have been tried successfully in 2000 cases. EarWay® products are produced by a leading innovator of ear-care solutions, which is targeting the European and US markets.
