‘Too much old technology for diagnoses’

To diagnose problems with balance, Ear-Nose-Throat-doctors (ENT-doctors) need to comb through vast amounts of data to come to the right conclusion and use large diagnosis devices that produce mainly visual information. This is time-consuming and expensive, and becomes unreachable in developing communities.

ENTy from Romania aims to empower Ear-Nose-Throat-doctors to issue data-based assessments. It proposes a radical simplification of the equipment needed to diagnose balance through Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) consultations for people working at great heights. It is developed in a collaboration with ENT doctors, allowing fine-tuning and calibration in order to maximize its relevance for present-day medical professionals.
