Tucson-based startup SafKan has developed a pair of headphones that can professionally clean a patient’s ear in just 35 seconds.
Winner of Protolabs’ Cool Idea! Award, SafKan is working on meeting customization requirements during the pivotal beta program stage for its device, OtoSet. The headphones have disposable silicone nozzles that spray a warm saline solution against the walls of the ear canal while sucking the solution and wax back into the nozzles and disposable outflow containers, avoiding messy spills, the company said.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
