Earigate is a new ear cleaning system.
Earigate's patented device and completely natural solution, cleans earwax from the ear canal safely, comfortably and effectively. This ear-care management product helps to decrease earwax build-up. Earigate also helps reduce the number of visits needed for earwax removal procedures
What are the effects of earwax blockage?
Earwax is produced in the outer one third of the ear canal, by secretions from glands that line the canal. Earwax helps to keep the ear clean and lubricated, and protected against infection.
Earwax becomes a problem when too much builds up and blocks the ear canal. Earwax blockage can result in hearing loss, pain, ringing, dizziness, and infections
How does EARIGATE work?
The Earigate device has a soft, rounded tip that is inserted into the ear. A guard prevents the device from going in too deeply.
When the device is activated, the Earigate solution passes along the tube, to the end piece, which results in the flow of solution being directed back out of the ear canal. The earwax is then forced out.
The nozzle's patented duct system, developed by an ENT, expels wax by projecting fluid into ear canal without forcing it against the tympanic membrane.
What are the ingredient in Earigate?
Earigate is comprised of 100% natural-source sea water. The solution is isotonic and contains no preservatives
How effective is Earigate?
The patented Earigate device effectively clears out earwax, and the ear wash solution keeps ears clean.
Impacted earwax should be removed by a physician prior to using Earigate
Can Earigate help prevent wax build-up?
Earigate is indicated to reduce wax accumulation. Regular use of Earigate reduces the risk of wax build-up
Is Earigate easy to use?
The Earigate system is simple, easy and comfortable.
The head is tilted to one side, and the device is inserted into the ear. The device is activated and a nozzle projects fluid into the ear canal.
The procedure is then repeated on the other ear.
Can Earigate be used safely?
Earigate is hypoallergenic, causes no rebound effect and prevents eardrum from being damaged.
The mechanism of action-the flow of solution directed back out of the ear canal-prevents the eardrum, and other sensitive and important structures of the ear, from being damaged. This technique also avoids the uncomfortable feeling of water hitting the eardrum.
When inserted fully (i.e. until the guard rests against the ear canal), the tip of the Earigate device will extend up to 1.7 cm into the ear canal. The length of the ear canal in children and adults is no less than 2.2 cm and 2.5 cm respectively, leaving a clearance of 0.5 cm.
Are there any side-effects associated with Earigate?
Dizziness may occur if the solution is too cold. Earigate should be stored at room temperature. No additional side effects have been noted to date
What are the commonly used earwax treatments?
ENTs perform approximately one million ear-care procedures every year(3). The most commonly used procedures are ear irrigation and the curette technique. Ear irrigation involves fluid being injected under pressure to remove the accumulated wax. With the curette technique, wax is scooped out with a curette-a small metal ring at the end of a metal handle(2).
At home, consumers use cotton swabs, solutions, and syringes

Earwax is a proven, effective ear cleaning system, which has demonstrated a decrease in wax build up, when used regularly
