Wax Removal using Micro-suction Procedure

The practitioner uses an Oscope ( a 12mm converged binocular optical system) to see inside the ear canal. Using the micro-suction apparatus, the wax is gently suctioned out of the ear canal until clear.

Benefits of Micro-suction

  • Pain free and very quick
  • No syringing which can be stressful and cause trauma to the eardrum.
  • No mess.
  • Safe for patients who may have a perforated eardrum, previous surgery or even recurring infections.

KUDOwave - The portable audiometer that changes the way we do hearing tests

The KUDUwave™ is an audiometric (hearing testing) device that employs a combination of technologies to block the same amount of sound as a sound booth. Additional technology monitors ambient noise in real-time to further ensure the quality of tests. Basically, this innovative equipment combines a headset, audiometer and sound booth in a single lightweight device.

Removing the need for a sound booth means improved portability, greater accessibility and boosts the overall patient and clinician experience.

Patients often complain of anxiety and claustrophobia when tested in a sound booth. Now patients can experience open-air testing and diagnostics while benefiting from more personal, face to face care from the clinician rather than through a small window.

The quality of testing is also improved by replacing traditional analogue components with highly accurate and reliable digital components.
