hearX Group launches world-first diagnostic smartphone otoscope – Sign up for up to 35% off



A world-first smartphone diagnostic otoscope, hearScope, will be launched via IndieGoGo on 1 August!

This is very exciting news for the hearX Group who continues to broaden their product ‘scope’ in the quest to provide healthy hearing for everyone, everywhere, with their clinically validated smartphone hearing test solutions.

To date the hearX Group has provided access to hearing healthcare to more than 70 000 people who would not normally have had this service, through their cost-effective, user-friendly smartphone technologies.

Complications from middle ear infection (Otitis Media) are a leading cause of preventable hearing loss in the developing world, affecting 33 out of 10 000 people globally. Ninety five percent of children will have an ear infection before the age of three and most of them will not have access to diagnosis or treatment. hearScope offers a swift and reliable solution that enables every healthcare provider to make an accurate diagnosis every time.

Simply put, a high-quality variable magnification otoscope “pen” (a medical device which is used to look into the ears) connects to a smartphone running the hearScope application. The result is a clear picture of the eardrum which can be used to accurately diagnose the problem. The images are as good as the sophisticated microscopes that ENT specialists use, making hearScope the ultimate diagnostic companion for healthcare providers.

What makes it revolutionary is that it is simple and affordable enough for a parent to use on their own smartphone.

hearScope was first revealed at Africa Health 2017 and will now be launched globally via a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo on 1 August at 19:00 (UTC +2).
