I had an interesting conversation with the team at
A New Tool For Home Earwax Removal
The team realised that the current crisis meant limited face to face appointments. Which means that people with earwax problems aren’t able to have it solved.
They have designed the new tool with complete safety in mind, the handle is held to the ear canal and then you roll the business end into the canal. As the tool enters the canal, it opens and captures the earwax plug. If the plug is the right consistency, it grabs it and extracts it in one solid lump. The tool can not go further into the canal then is safe.
The set comes with the handle and four tools, at the moment, they are all the medium size tool which is the right size more or less for most people. In essence, the set is good for four home earwax removals. I am not sure of the pricing, either wholesale or retail at present, but
A Triage Solution?
It got me thinking, at the minute many of us are moving towards face to face appointments for earwax removal. I think it is clear to us all that those appointments are onerous, involving a lot of measures to keep both ourselves and our customers safe. Could this tool fit within our processes as a triage measure? Might we sell the tool as a first measure, before moving towards a face to face appointment?
If we did so, it might mean that we can increase the number of people we serve while keeping face to face appointments at a manageable level. If you are interested, you can
