CEO / Co- Founder
Martin O’Connell is an electrical engineer from County Kerry, Ireland. An accomplished and internationally renowned musician, Martin co-founded Nasal Medical in 2014. The concept for the company was originally born through solving a problem in cattle contacting TB, and from this, a market became apparent for humans. Nasal Medical develops anatomically designed nasal medical devices to assist better breathing. The teams’ focus on strong product design has resulted in patented, novel and effective medical devices. To date, the Nasal Medical Discreet Snoring Aid has shown to improve snoring in 9 out of 10 patients. The recently launched Allergy Nasal Filter offers a drug-free solution for filtering allergens, such as pollen, dust, pet dander and mould. With studies both ongoing and completed in key universities and hospitals, science backing, innovation, customer-centered approach and clinical testing is at the forefront of Nasal Medical.
