Otoset combines and controls the two most popular methods of earwax removal: irrigation with continuous micro-suction.

According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology, excessive or impacted earwax is present in over 35 million Americans including 1 in 10 children, 1 in 20 adults, and more than one-third of the senior population. Excessive or impacted earwax is very common and can cause conductive hearing loss and several other symptoms. Additionally, approximately 60 to 70% of all damaged hearing aids sent in for repair are simply clogged with earwax or degraded by organic materials.

To address the need for a safer and more effective solution to treating excessive or impacted earwax, SafKan Health developed the first automated and FDA-cleared ear cleaning device called OtoSet.

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.

  • OtoSet is the first FDA-cleared ear cleaning device clinically proven to remove mild to severe earwax impactions quickly and safely.
  • OtoSet combines and controls the two most popular 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.”
