The Eq-Tool is a digital device developed to improve your equalization skills.

By inflating air in your Eq-tool pressure in your upper airway increases, the Eustachian tube opens and the eardrum vibrates. 

Air pressure is measured by a wireless sensor connected to a mobile device while the data acquired can be analysed and recorded using a dedicated app.

The Eq-Tool can be used for practising tubal gymnastics, for relieving the discomfort caused by sudden changes in pressure on airplanes and trains or it can be used in the treatment of otitis media with effusion.

 

 

This device is equipped with a valve for adjusting the air flow and it can be used in speech therapy because of its controlling and developing action on the organs of speech.

 

 

The Eq-Tool is a very helpful device for all those who practise diving. Training and optimizing your equalization techniques such as advanced or sequential Frenzel and the Mouthfill, as well as improving the air flow to the upper airway with the reverse packing or the abdominal contractions will be possible with your Eq-Tool.

 

 

Our application is compatible with Android and IOS and it is designed to learn and improve your equalization skills. When using the Eq-Tool app you can choose from different training tables, you can create your own one or simply follow a free pattern.

The Eq-Tool is for everyone!

We have also included a “game mode” dedicated to the younger users (and not only) where you can choose from different templates to make the most varied and captivating experience.

The Eq-Tool is available in three sizes: 20, 22 and 25mm and it is made with hypoallergenic materials, easy to clean and very resistant. This device will be initially produced in two color versions: black and white, then red and blue will be available when the first stretch goal is reached.

The Eq-Tool communicates with mobile devices though a Bluetooth low energy module powered by a CR2032 battery, readily available and low-cost but still providing a range of about 45 days with a daily use of more than an hour.

 

We need to raise about € 18k to market and launch the Eq-Tool; money collected during this campaign will be mainly used to cover its production, certification, testing and a small part of engineering.

Thanks for your support!

 

 

Additional Notes

Please note that shipping to any country outside the European Union may be delayed or canceled depending on the feasibility of local product approval requirements or local import regulations. In a case of cancellation we will refund your pledge. There may be additional duties, fees or taxes raised by the authorities in your country. You may need to take care of them yourself when receiving the shipment.

 

Risks and challenges

We have already completed most of the work and we are confident that we will be able to win the trust of our supporters delivering their Eq-Tool on time.
Our team has built several prototypes of the Eq-Tool over the months, thus analyzing and solving all the problems that have arised along the way.
To minimize the uncertainties due to the mass production of our device, we have made an agreement with our suppliers as to arrive well prepared at the industrial stage.
If any unexpected mishaps should arise or if there should be an unexpected delivery delay, we will inform our customers and give them a new delivery date…although we will do our best to avoid that!
