Otometri’s CEO Manne Hannula: ”When working with Innokas specialists, you can truely feel that you are working in a cooperation with an experienced team.”
Otometri Oy is a Finnish healthcare technology company founded in 2010. In cooperation with the Medical Engineering R&D Center of Oulu University of Applied Sciences, the company has developed ear infection evaluation device, Otometri, for home use. The measurement principle of the device is based on an acoustic reflectometry combined with artificial neural networks technology. The measurement evaluates properties of the tympanic membrane with help of a small sound stimulus. If the functioning of the tympanic membrane is decreased due to inflammation fluid in the middle ear, it alters correspondingly the sound stimulus, which is analyzed with the help of artificial intelligence system of Otometri. The device provides information about ear’s status for parents during children’s flu. Also, the measurement history helps physicians in decision making during doctor visits. It is also beneficial to follow up healing of ears after ear infection. The result is less unnecessary usage of antibiotics and less unnecessary doctor visits.
Innokas Medical has co-operated with Otometri by offering consulting services for implementing company’s ISO 13485 quality system for design and manufacturing the Otometri device. Otometri’s CEO Manne Hannula says that Innokas was chosen as a QA/RA consulting partner especially because of its very strong experience in the field.
