Tympany Medical

Tympany Medical is a spin-out company from NUIG developing a novel endoscope which will revolutionise how ear surgeons operate.

Tympany Medical is designing and developing a novel combined access and visualisation device which will enable ear surgeons to ‘see around the corners’ of the ear canal. This will allow surgeons to perform trans-canal ear surgery with a wide endoscopic view of the surgical site, thereby avoiding unnecessarily invasive surgery.

For Patients it will:

  • Enable true minimally invasive ear surgery, which can be performed under local anaesthetic
  • Reduce mastoidectomies therefore maintaining mastoid function and associated benefits

For Surgeons it will:

  • Improve the surgeon’s view of the surgical site
  • Create simple access to surgical site with imbedded retraction capabilities
  • Maintain the current surgical technique (two-handed)
  • Provide ergonomic benefits for surgeons

For Hospitals:

  • Shorter procedure times resulting in lower costs to healthcare system
  • Reduce number of outpatient appointments
  • OtoVuTM is an enabling and empowering technology that preserves the two-handed operating technique associated with the microscope.
Tympany’s technology will provide a potential platform for diversification into parallel surgical markets.
