Bionix OtoClear Aquabot
Bionix (Toledo, Ohio) has been marketing cerumen removal products since 1984, and most pediatricians use their curettes and cerumen spoons routinely.
This year they have released the Bionix OtoClear Aquabot Device for ear canal irrigation. The Aquabot system provides a continuous stream of water to facilitate cerumen removal when used with OtoClear irrigation tips. Users “pump” the Aquabot container 6 times to generate an internal pressure of 35 psi. A button press activates the water flow, and the ear cup collects the irrigation water and extruded cerumen. Neat system and likely will you improve your ability to remove cerumen that can cause hearing loss or obscure our view of the tympanic membrane.
