It is time to be Ear Responsible! Enjoy your water passions without the pain

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 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.

Medical Support Products: Not Just Treatment, Prevention

March 4, 2019




Mr. Lev Tripolsky, Founder and CEO of ITA-MED Co., a premier designer and manufacturer of medical support products for a healthy lifestyle joins eHealth Radio and the Health News Channel.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Mr. Lev Tripolsky discuss the following:

  1. Your company’s philosophy and approach is very much based on prevention, not just curing physical problems. Can you expound on that a bit?
  2. Graduated compression hosiery is a big seller for your company. Compression socks, as they are also called, have undergone a dramatic transformation over the last few years in terms of both appearance and function. Can you tell us about that, and why more people, including world-class athletes, are wearing them?
  3. Your Gabrialla brand designs and sells a full range of maternity products – not really maternity clothing (though you do sell some) but products to help a woman minimize or even eliminate the physical effects of pregnancy. What are some of the issues Gabrialla products can address?
  4. Your MAXAR brand offers a wide range of orthopedic braces and supports. Everyone is familiar with the concept of using these products after they’ve been injured, but you advocate using them preventatively. How do you convince someone who doesn’t have an injury to use a brace or support?
  5. ITA-MED has a great deal of competition in each of the individual markets you work in - maternity, orthopedics, supports, etc. What are some of the ways you differentiate yourself from your competition, from both a product and a corporate perspective?

Lev Tripolsky has served as president and CEO of ITA-MED since its inception in September 1992. Before founding ITA-MED, Mr. Tripolsky served as Regional Manager for National Group Marketing. Before that he was International Sales Manager at Westinghouse Electric Corp.
