Faster diagnoses with simplified techniques

By 9th November 2017Semi-finalists

People working at heights need to have perfect balance. To diagnose problems with balance, Ear-Nose-Throat-doctors (ENT-doctors) need to comb through vast amounts of data to come the right conclusion. If it is up to ENTy from Romania, that will change rapidly.

Currently, ENT doctors must use a large diagnosis device that produces mainly visual information. ENTy aims to empower Ear-Nose-Throat-doctors to issue data-based assessments and proposes a radical simplification of the equipment needed to diagnose balance through Ear-Nose-Throat consultations for people working at great heights.

“Our solution consists in a lighter, portable, lower cost device that generates numerical indicators, easy to interpret. It will be developed in collaboration with ENT doctors, allowing fine-tuning and calibration in order to maximize its relevance for present-day medical professionals,” saiys Flavia Oprea, founder of ENTy.

At the semi-finals of Ideas from Europe, she will present ENTy’s new technology and represent Romania on November 22 in Tallinn.
