BACO Liverpool – where music and hearing came together

Liverpool is justly famous for being the home of the world’s first boy band, still in the opinion of the author at least, one of the greatest bands that ever performed. Now it’s also famous as the home of the triennial BACO ENT surgeon’s conference, not quite as romantic perhaps and without any Yellow Submarines but almost as important!

Liverpool – where music and hearing come together

Since Liverpool is the place where music and hearing come together, it did not come as surprise that BACO was well attended, nor that many visitors were particularly interested in our Bionix range.

The Bionix curettes are non-invasive and disposable. Available in lit and unlit versions, they come in a mixed pack of 50 curettes, including a light source and magnifier; with 7 of each of: angleloop, microloop, wavecurette, ceraspoon, infantscoop, versaloop, plus 8 flexloop. Not only are they disposable and therefore compliant with NHS standards, but are also ideal for paediatric use. We’ve heard that younger patients particularly like the Star Wars feel of the lighted curettes, making the whole wax management procedure more pleasant and entertaining for everyone.

 DE1250 Endo-camera – to see clearly

Another real attraction at the PC Werth stand was our wireless video otoscope – Firefly. Thanks to high res images surgeons can educate their patients who will be able to clearly see their own ear canal on the screen. Also thanks to Firefly you can take images, save them and annotate them prior to reviewing with your colleague’s.
