Spritz-OM defends ears with a friendly mist, sparing children from infections and promoting wellness.

  • Middle ear infection (otitis media) is a prevalent childhood ailment worldwide, necessitating doctor visits, antibiotic prescriptions, and even surgeries.
  • Current preventative measures are limited, leading to significant healthcare costs, with the USA and Australia collectively spending billions on antibiotics and otitis media surgeries annually.
  • Untreated otitis media can result in profound consequences for children and society, including hearing loss and adverse educational outcomes.
  • Introducing Spritz-OM, a nasal therapy utilizing beneficial bacteria to protect the ear from infection.
  • Research indicates that children prone to ear infections often lack these beneficial bacteria in their nasal microbiome, highlighting the potential for using them to prevent infections.
  • Medical-grade Spritz-OM is currently in production for human trials in Perth, with the goal of providing an affordable and effective solution to prevent ear infections globally, thereby reducing reliance on antibiotics and surgeries.
