An Israeli firm, Tyto Care has developed a portable device
that helps monitor all sorts of health parameters to letádoctors diagnose
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 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 simpleáhealth situation.
