Brian Connors, Director at SwimSeal Australasia that markets a unique product that protects the ear from pain and infections caused by water being trapped in the ear joins eHealth Radio and the Ear Health and Health News Channel.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Brian Connors discuss the following:

  1. What is SwimSeal Protective Ear Drops?
  2. Does it treat or prevent Swimmers Ear?
  3. What is the unmet need that SwimSeal Protective Ear Drops is addressing? How big of an issue is this?
  4. How are people dealing with this before the availability of SwimSeal?
  5. How adequate are these current practices?
  6. How do you use SwimSeal?
  7. What is in it? (what are the components of SwimSeal)?
  8. Who will most benefit from SwimSeal? A
  9. re there any precautions or contraindication?
  10. Does it build up in the ear? How does it get out?

After working in the medical device sector for over 25 years Brian saw the opportunity to introduce a new product into the Australian and Asian markets to protect ears against ear pain and infections caused by repeated exposure to water or by water being trapped in the ear after being in the water or even after showering.

After researching the market, Brian realised that the aural (ear) sector was underserved, especially in the area of prevention of water related pain and infection. Conservative estimates are that 2% of the population suffer from and infection each years and thousands more suffer pain and irritation form exposure to water.

The product, SWIMSEAL PROTECTIVE EAR DROPS was developed in conjunction with Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) medical specialists and uses a unique formulation of medical grade silicone and Australian Tea Tree Oil. It works as an upfront preventative against ear pain and infections and is safe to use for all ages from 6 months. With this background and with regulatory approval in the markets where the product is sold you can have peace of mind that it is safe to use.

It is the perfect companion for anyone who enjoys water sports - swimming, surfing, scuba diving and snorkelling, water polo synchronised swimming ...in fact any water based activity has a need for SWIMSEAL.

In addition it is ideal for mum’s and their little ones to ensure that bath time and water play times do not turn into interrupted nights and unnecessary visits to the doctor to treat painful ear infections.

Until now people have used products to try to treat retained water with little success. In fact most of these products are alcohol based and cause more harm than good!

Now with SwimSeal people can be ”ear responsible” not irresponsible and stop water causing damage to their ears.

The new way to get hearing aids with Dr. Elaine Saunders

The new way to get hearing aids with Dr. Elaine Saunders

July 19, 2018

 

Elaine_Saunders_MED.jpg

 

Dr. Elaine Saunders, audiologist, biomedical engineer, and Executive Chairman of award-winning Australian telehealth and hearing aid company, Blamey Saunders hears joins eHealth Radio and the Hearing Health Channel.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Elaine Saunders discuss the following:

  1. How does an online hearing solution work?
  2. How can you test hearing online?
  3. What can we expect in regards to the appearance of hearing aids today?
  4. Hearing aids are always quoted as very expensive - with premium devices upwards of $10k. Are they really worth that investment?
  5. If someone is starting to have trouble hearing in restaurants and some situations where it is noisy - what advantages would they get from having a hearing aid, most would rather just put up with it?

Tip: I suggest listeners get hearing aids as soon as they find difficulty hearing, in order to make sure the brain gets enough brain stimulation for hearing speech sounds
