Since its appearance on the market 20 years ago, it is estimated that Propulse® Ear Irrigator has been used to clean the equivalent of nearly 50% of the UK ear population. Propulse® supplies ear care products for the professional health care market across the UK. Reports indicate that the number of people suffering from hearing loss in the UK has been growing rapidly over the past several decades, rising by 73% from 1992 to 2007, which illustrates that proper ear care is more important than ever. Medical professionals recommend that regular wax removal is a crucial part of maintaining ear health. Although many people use a cotton bud to remove wax and dirt, this method often leads to complications and injury. Implementing this method introduces new bacteria and debris into the ear canal and pushes wax further inside, instead of removing it completely. Having your ears cleaned by a medical professional utilising an ear irrigator is the proper, medically recommended way to quickly and safely cleanse the ear canal.

Propulse® Ear Irrigator has been used to remove wax from the ears of approximately 28 million people in the United Kingdom since its introduction in 1990. This is more than the entire populations of the Netherlands, Denmark, and Norway, combined. With the average ear canal being 26 mm in length, the device has thus been used to cleanse over 1.000 kilometers of ear canal, or more than the distance from London to Zurich.

2010 marks 20 years of hi-tech irrigation for Propulse®. During this time, the Propulse® brand has allowed Nurse Practitioners, as well as other clinicians to effectively and safely cleanse and care for millions of ears in the United Kingdom. Throughout its lengthy history, the device has continued to set new standards in ear irrigation, while complying with all the latest standards and guidelines.
