Is A Wispr Exam Comfortable For The Patient?
Yes, because of the unique geometry of the Wispr speculum, the exam can be very comfortable. With practice, your patients may not feel the exam. The Wispr speculum is significantly smaller than a standard speculum.
With modest practice, it’s possible to steer the speculum through the external ear canal without contacting the canal wall. This is done by coordinating what you see on the built-in display while steering and advancing the speculum.
We have developed an exam tips video that illustrates the technique.
What Organizations Are Currently Using The Wispr?
Here are just a few of our current Wispr customers.
Why Are Only Certain Power Handles Supported?
The Wispr Digital Otosopce contains many circuit boards that are not present in an analog otoscope. Because of this, the Wispr requires a specific level of consistent power.
A large number of manufacturers make power handles that have the common mechanical twist-lock connector used by the Wispr. But, not all of these power handles deliver power in the same way. There are significant variations in voltage, amperage, ramp-time and capacity.
WiscMed engineers have evaluated many industry power handles. Those that have the consistency and dependability as demonstrated by our testing become “certified” to work with the Wispr. You can count on these handles to work with your Wispr.
We also strongly recommend that you have a “fairly new” battery if using a battery power handle. This is because the power that can be supplied by the battery decreases with time. Please see this knowledge base item for battery duration.
