OtoNexus is developing the world’s first medical device to provide definitive, objective diagnostic data for the instant and accurate diagnose of middle ear infections, called Otitis Media, in children and adults. A simple and elegant solution, the device applies a well-known medical technology, ultrasound, in a completely novel way to achieve a key advance in differentiating when and when not to prescribe antibiotics. One-use-per-patient tips with patented technology create a recurring revenue stream. The device will provide data in seconds and will be easy to use by physicians or non-physician personnel (NPs, PAs). Definitive, objective diagnostic data identifying both the presence and the type of fluid behind the eardrum will lead to more accurate diagnoses, better treatment, better outcomes and significantly reduced cost.
