EntraTympanic, LLC


EntraTympanic is developing a handheld medical device for the in-office treatment of pediatric middle ear infections. Physicians are seeking an alternative to the current 2-3 day watchful waiting procedure, which leaves the child in pain, and is often followed by systemic antibiotics which contribute to drug resistance and serious antoimmune and digestive disorders. The customer is physicians who treat roughly 25M US ear infections annually.
