NasalCare® has been named "Best New Product" at the 2010 ECRM Cough & Cold and Allergy Conference. It is a nasal-sinus irrigation system with a patented anti-backflow technology that has overcome the problems of back wash contamination and the associated risk of sinus re-infection, growing concerns in the medical community. The device is also much more user-friendly than neti pots.
Downingtown, PA (PRWEB) March 9, 2010 -- TechWorld Medicals received the “Best New Product” award for its NasalCare® Nasal Cleanse Kits at the ECRM Cough & Cold and Allergy conference held in Dallas last week.
The “Best New Product” is voted by retail buyers from 75 major drug store chains across North America. “About 90 companies including some Fortune 100 drug makers competed for the award; as a woman- and minority-owned small business, we are very proud that our 10 years of research and investment on this product finally paid off,” said Dr. Lilly Zhang, founder and president of TechWorld Medicals.
NasalCare® is a nasal-sinus irrigation system with patented anti-backflow technology that has overcome the problems of back wash contamination and the associated risk of sinus re-infection, growing concerns in the medical community. Yet, both issues are associated with conventional bottles sold on the current market.
Cold, flu, allergies and sinusitis are the most common diseases. More and more doctors, including Dr. Oz, a regular guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, recommend nasal irrigation (nasal cleansing) for nasal congestion, sinus infections, sinusitis, post-nasal drip, colds and flu and allergies.
However, not all nasal irrigators are created equally. With the traditional neti pot, users must tilt their heads sideways, which is difficult to do and brings the risk of ear infections. This method also does not thoroughly clean the sinuses since the neti pot lacks the force to send the solution into the sinuses.
Some squeeze bottles crush easily and cause the nasal solution to flow back into the bottle, and it is difficult to clean the contaminated narrow tube. This makes sinus re-infection through nasal back wash a big risk as reported on the first day of the Rhinology World 2009 conference held in Philadelphia. This finding was made by ENT surgeons at St. Paul's Hospital, Vancouver, Canada, led by Dr. Amin Javer, current Director and Clinical Faculty at St. Paul's Sinus Center.
According to the company, the patented anti-backflow technology helps prevent contamination and is easier to clean after use. A protective cap prevents bacteria and debris from entering the NasalCare® reservoir when not in use.
As opposed to some more traditional nasal irrigation systems, NasalCare® also features a positive pressure flow so that patients don’t have to tip their heads when using, noted Dr. Lilly Zhang, President of TechWorld Medicals.
The patented nasal rinse mix included with the starter kit has overcome the sting and nasal dryness problems of regular saline. The NasalCare® nasal cleanse solution is pH balanced and features mineral-rich sea salt, as well as soothing aloe extract, for a powerful sinus rinse that is gentle on the delicate nasal lining, yet more effective than regular saline.
According to James Liu, MD, PhD, senior vice president of the company, “nasal irrigation with NasalCare® is as simple as brushing your teeth, and it is so safe and natural that even pregnant women, small children, and the elderly can use it as an allergy treatment or sinus infection remedy.”
Suggested retail price is $14.99 for both the adult size and pediatric version.
