SafKan Health, a Seattle, WA-based earwax removal startup, raised $8M in Series A funding.
The round, which brought total funding raised to date to $13M, was led by Unorthodox Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and its business reach.
Led by CEO Sahil Diwan, SafKan Health is a medical device startup which has developed the FDA-cleared OtoSet® Ear Cleaning System. Now available, the device is an automated ear cleaning system for Americans affected by earwax buildup, including two-thirds of all nursing home residents.
OtoSet uses a novel system of irrigation and micro-suction technology, all built into an automated and wearable device resembling a familiar and sleek pair of headphones.
In a quick cleaning cycle, liquid flow is directed from solution containers through disposable ear tips and toward the walls of the ear canals to break down earwax. Continuous micro-suction draws the earwax and liquid back through the ear tips and into disposable waste containers for a simple, clean procedure.
