Ventura Medical Technologies has developed a new device that allows for the simple and safe extraction of earwax plugs from the auditory canal.
The technique involves directing a stream of water at a constant pressure towards the wall of the auditory canal automatically without the need for regulation.
Lantitaps aims to improve the conditions of the extraction technique for healthcare professionals, including in Primary Care consultations, Hospitals, Home Care, socio-health centers, Social Residences, etc.
The inconvenience of emptying the bulky syringes used in the extraction of earwax plugs and, on the other hand, the high cost, limited portability, and low autonomy of electric irrigators (connections, batteries, etc.) led to the consideration of new solutions.
Lantitaps was conceived by Dr. Federico Javier Hernández Chafes, a Family Doctor at Atenció Primària de Sant Rafael de Barcelona, Institut Català de la Salut (ICS).
Thanks to the collaboration between the inventor, IDIAP JORDI GOL (Foundation for the Development of Research in Primary Care) and VENTURA MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES, the development, manufacture, and commercialization of Lantitaps has been carried out.
