Imagine keeping this device at home and, once a family member gets sick,
calling your doctor and performing a basic check-up. This would include
performing auscultations just like with a regular stethoscope, but the doctor
listening to the sounds at the office; measuring temperature with the
thermometer; looking under the tongue using a built-in camera coupled with a
tongue depressor; and looking into the ears using an otoscope.
‘The Tyto, a portable device offers people the option of staying at home rather than visiting the clinic in most simple health situation.’
The Tyto device is currently going through the FDA clearance process,
hopefully one day offering people the option of staying at home rather than
visiting the clinic in most simple health situation.
Tyto Care also has plans for a TytoPro kit, a more advanced version of the
device that would interface with existing electronic medical records systems.
