What is Tympa?
Tympa is the world's first all-in-one ear and hearing healthcare assessment platform. It allows us to perform multiple services including hearing assessment, wax removal, and examinations in one efficient 30 minute appointment.
The platform allows us to obtain high resolution images and videos of the inner ear, enabling us to make informed, accurate diagnosis and help clients obtain clear visual information about any issues they may be experiencing.
How does Microsuction Earwax Removal work?
The Tympa system includes a specialist suction tax, delivering a quick, safe, and painless microsuction treatment as it gently removes wax from the ear canal.
This is one of the safest, easiest, and least painful ways to get rid of excess earwax. The procedure will be performed by a trained and accredited clinician, in one of our start-of-the-art private medical clinics.
Why does hearing health matter?
Good ear and hearing health is important to people of all ages and helps us to get the most out of life. When our ability to hear deteriorates it requires more energy for us to listen and participate in daily life, which can lead to becoming socially isolated as people find it harder to engage with loved ones.
Whilst it is common for certain people to attend routine health check-ups such as eye and teeth procedures on a regular basis, our ears are often left forgotten. This should not be the case. Hearing loss has huge social implications on our quality of life. Hearing loss, if left untreated, can lead to increased risk of falls, social isolation, and is also known to be the single largest modifiable risk factor for the prevention of dementia. Not only that we are often unaware of what we cannot hear, that’s why regular ear and hearing health check-ups are essential.
What are the signs to look out for?
There are a range of signs to watch out for which could indicate you have an ear or hearing problem:
Loss of hearing
Ears feeling full
Loss of balance
Turning up the volume
Moving closer to those talking
Asking people to repeat themselves
Concentrating harder than normal to listen
What is the solution?
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. The Tympa allows you to perform; high-definition digital otoscopy (to capture HD image and video), microsuction wax removal (the industry gold standard), and carry out a hearing screening, all in a single 30-minute appointment.
All patient images and video are stored in our secure cloud, making it easy to keep track of your patients’ ear and hearing health record. This can be quickly and easily shared, via a professional PDF, with ENT surgeons, audiologists or GPs, should the patient need onward specialist treatment.
Our “Remote Review” feature allows access to remote advice and guidance from Audiologists and ENT specialist surgeons, if a second opinion is required.
The Tympa system is the most advanced, comprehensive, handheld ear and hearing healthcare device and diagnosis platform available to healthcare providers.
TympaHealth clinicians are trained by experts in Audiology and ENT and are officially accredited by by ENT UK, The British Society of Audiology (BSA) and The British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists (BSHAA). No other programme in the UK offers this unique level of accreditation.
Diagnosis & Treatment:
During a Tympa appointment your clinician will be able to assess your ears, and if wax is present, gently remove it with microsuction. Microsuction is the gold standard of wax removal and is considered safer than other methods such as irrigation.
Once wax has been removed a hearing screening can be performed. This will identify whether you have a level of hearing loss. If you do have a hearing loss your clinician may refer you to an audiologist for further investigation. However, in many cases, the initial problem could’ve simply been down to the presence of wax itself.
