The Tympa System

The Tympa system is the world’s first all-in-one ear and hearing healthcare assessment device. It brings together three different diagnostic and treatment systems into one hand-held portable system. With the Tympa system you get: high-definition digital otoscopy for examinations, microsuction for wax and debris removal, and a hearing screening test.

If a user requires a second opinion, they are able to utilise our remote advice and guidance service, Remote Review, where clinicians can send images and videos to ENT and Audiology experts for further analysis. All this is backed up by a fully digital secure system for keeping patient records, which can be quickly and easily shared, via a professional PDF, with ENT surgeons, audiologists or GPs, should the patient need onward specialist treatment.

Currently, the pathway to ear and hearing healthcare can be both disjointed and relatively inaccessible. Many patients move from appointment to appointment, spread over several weeks, if not months. The average waiting time for patients to receive treatment was 12-16 weeks (pre-covid), this has now grown substantially. Not only that, but most GP’s have also stopped offering wax removal as a service, which has a significant impact on access and wellbeing.

The Tympa system provides a faster, easier route to ear and hearing healthcare. It empowers non-specialists to perform digital otoscopy, microsuction wax removal, and a hearing screener test within a single 30-minute appointment. This not only makes ear and hearing health services more accessible for patients, but it also reduces the number of GP and hospital appointments required by patients, thus lessening the strain on the NHS. Many patients feel relief once wax is removed with hearing often improving. Once the ear is clear from wax or debris, clinicians can then assess the patients overall hearing, with the Tympa system’s hearing screener. Patients can then be recommended further treatment solutions, such as referral or hearing aid fitting, should a hearing loss be present.
