DP Medical has been chosen by Italy-based Neuranix as the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for its groundbreaking med-wave® device – a tool designed to perform gentle, non-invasive middle ear analysis in a matter of seconds.
Based on patented PLAI™ methodology, the device performs a multi-frequency test using a probe that sends chirp signals from 100 to 3000 Hz that are then analysed at frequencies from 100 to 1500Hz.
Med-wave® processes the data collected and compares it with its proprietary database of pathologies in order to offer quick, painless, objective assessment of ear health status.
Neuranix founder and CEO, Filip Moens, said: “Med-wave’s creation was inspired by my own experience of having multiple painful, invasive and often slow ear tests as a child.
“As I grew up, I thought it must be possible to make this testing equipment more friendly and less invasive. This is why I founded Neuranix – to bring more user and patient friendly test equipment to diagnose and monitor hearing diseases.
“We’re excited to be partnering with DP Medical Systems to bring this innovation and the med-wave device to the UK and Ireland.”
Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical, said: “The med-wave® device is a groundbreaking tool that will undoubtedly be welcomed by ENT specialists and paediatricians.
“Faster, more gentle and less invasive ear testing will benefit both the practitioner and the patient alike, and we’re looking forward to demonstrating med-wave’s capabilities to ENT professionals across the country.”
The partnership with Neuranix marks DP Medical’s second distribution agreement in a matter of weeks, having recently announced a deal with DIFRA Instrumentation to supply the UK and Ireland markets with its range of audio vestibular devices.
Owen, said: “We’re proud to have joined forces with both DIFRA Instrumentation and Neuranix this summer, cementing our position as one of the UK and Ireland’s leading ENT suppliers, working with some of the world’s top innovators in the sector.”
