We’re excited about the recent release of our Oto HOME system. People are often impressed when they find out just how many people can benefit from using the Oto HOME, our smartphone enabled ear checker tool, so we wanted to share a few different ways it can be used to illustrate its versatility.
Who is the Oto HOME designed for?
Parents, because most young children will have an ear infection.
The majority of children will experience an ear infection by the time they’re just one year old! Ear infections can be painful and scary for kids and stressful for the whole family. Normally, you would have to wait for a doctors appointment and haul your kids to the pediatrician’s office but with the Oto HOME you can get better answers, faster. Simply take a video with our app and hear back from a doctor within 2 hours using Oto CONNECT. Nothing like quick, easy resolution to get some much needed peace of mind and keep your family healthy
Especially when your child has more than one infection every year.
Although almost every child will experience at least one ear infection, a smaller group will have recurrent ear infections (four or more per year). The Oto HOME is the perfect tool for parents of these “frequent flyers” because it allows them to get a diagnosis from home instead of constantly shuttling back and forth to the pediatrician. And if your child has ear tubes put in, the Oto HOME can double as a monitoring tool. There’s less time to worry when you can get an answer in under 2 hours!
We know that children aren’t the only people with ear health concerns. Earwax blockage is the most common ear related problem that doctors see and can be accompanied by a number of adverse side effects including pain, dizziness and impaired hearing. If you are an adult or child who suffers from excessive earwax or earwax impaction, the Oto HOME can save you tons of time and worry by helping you get to the root of the problem quickly.
Individuals With Ménières Disease
Ménières disease typically affects adults in their 40s and 50s and is characterized by increased fluid in the inner ear. It typically presents with extreme dizziness and weakness which can be scary and debilitating, leaving those affected in no state to drive to the doctor for an ear exam. We recommend the Oto HOME as an ear monitoring tool so that you can check in with a doctor comfortably and safely from home to rule out an infection.
These are just a few of the many ways people are using the Oto HOME. How do you use yours? Tell us!
