TytoHome – A remote medical examination kit
The idea behind the TytoHome hand-held examination kit was born from Tyto Care’s CEO, Dedi Gilad. The father of two was sure that a remote way of seeing the doctor was far better than visiting germ-packed emergency rooms.
With the remote exam kit, anyone can conduct a quick medical examination at home. The device can be paired with a teleconferencing app for remote consultation with a medical doctor. ThytoHome can help your doctor make a diagnosis, offer treatment advice, and prescribe medication.
The device includes a digital thermometer, a digital camera, tongue depressor, stethoscope, and otoscope for the ears. It can monitor the heart rate and body temperature and can also send digital images to your doctor. To use the TytoHome, you need a Wi-Fi internet connection and a tablet or smartphone.
