EVERYONE HAS A STORY
Ours began on a farm in County Kerry.
When the herd of cattle on Martin O’Connell’s family farm in Kerry was wiped out from tuberculosis, Martin wanted to try and prevent something like this happening again. He had an idea to use a filter for cows to block bacteria reaching their lungs. From this idea, the idea for a filter to help battle pollution effects in humans was born. Nasal Medical was founded in 2014 by Martin O’Connell and Keith Yeager. 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. In 2016, Nasal Medical won the AIB Start up Academy, which led to nationwide recognition, validation, and a prize fund to work with national media such as Irish Times, Maximum Media, and numerous local and national radio stations.
To date, the Nasal Medical Discreet Snoring Aid has shown to significantly reduce snoring in 9 out of 10 patients. The recently launched Allergy Nasal Filter offers a drug-free solution for preventing allergies, blocking allergens such as pollen, dust, pet dander and mould from entering the nose. 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’s core values.SHOP PRODUCTS
