Elberton, GA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Summit Medical, Incorporated, to offer their EarPopper® Ear Pressure Relief Devices to a wider consumer marketplace. Headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota, and founded as Micromedics, Inc., in 1982 with the initial goal of developing, manufacturing and marketing microsurgery products, the Nordson Corporation acquired both the Fibrijet Biomaterials Applicators product line and the Micromedics name in November of 2010. Summit Medical continues to manufacture a variety of medical devices, with many of their product lines expanded via an aggressive product development and acquisition strategy of Santa Barbara Medco.
Summit Medical creates a wide variety of proprietary medical products which include Instru-Safe™ surgical instrument trays; Physician's Choice and Santa Barbara Medco, Inc., ear protection and ear care products; Dizzy Fix™ Epley training devices for BPPV; Otology™ and Rhinology™ ear, nose and throat implants and devices for both non-surgical and surgical use; and EarPopper® devices for treating problems associated with negative pressure in the middle ear and Eustachian tube dysfunction. As a safe and simple treatment for middle ear pressure problems, the EarPopper® has been clinically proven to relieve ear pressure in both children and adults, without medication or surgery. Based on the Politzer Maneuver, this innovative device works by delivering a safe, constant and regulated flow of air into the nasal cavity. The user then simply swallows, causing the air to be diverted up the Eustachian tube, which subsequently clears and ventilates the middle ear, relieving negative ear pressure and allowing any accumulated fluids to drain.
Available in a professional model for clinical environments, or a home model for treatment at home, a doctor's prescription is required in the USA for both models. While there are other products on the market making similar efficacy claims, the patented EarPopper® from Summit Medical is the only clinically proven, FDA-cleared device that is used and recommended by healthcare practitioners around the world. “We are proud to introduce more consumers to the amazing efficacy of the EarPopper® from Summit Medical,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “Everyone experiences ear problems from time to time, and this device is great to have on hand for those situations, and to help prevent worse problems. Swimming, scuba diving, flying in an airplane, elevator rides, colds and allergies can all wreak havoc with maintaining balanced ear pressure, but the EarPopper® can help you regain that balance very quickly, easily and comfortably. If you regularly have trouble with 'popping' your ears, or are prone to a lot of ear health issues, prepare to be amazed with this device. You'll wonder how you ever survived without it!”
