JEDMED’s Horus Scope allows users to capture video of their ears, throat, skin, and more. Doctors can use these videos to provide a diagnosis.
More and more people are making the switch to telemedicine, especially in response to Covid-19. Being able to consult with a doctor through video can save time, money, and may encourage people to address issues for which they have been hesitant to visit a clinic.
Consulting with the doctor through video or text chat means assessment relies on what the doctor is told or can see virtually. This is suitable in some cases, but many issues require a closer look. Businesses like JEDMED are increasing the number of problems telemedicine can address by developing assessment tools.
The Horus Scope can be used to provide remote doctors with a detailed video of problem areas. The Scope comes with multiple interchangeable attachments so it can be used in examinations of general health issues, ear & throat issues, skin concerns, and more.
The high-resolution camera can be connected directly to a video call with the doctor, or capture recordings for upload to a computer that can be sent to the doctor at any time. Horus Scope has three different models available. Each series adds tech advancements such as improved camera, touch screen, and USB.
“The equipment is more suited for use by healthcare professionals rather than patients like the Tyto device. However, devices such as this could be used for specialist/second opinions saving patients visits to the hospital when used by trained staff in the community, or by doctors. It could also be used to record visual images for monitoring or simply for clinical documentation in electronic health records. Lastly, images or video would be great for education or teaching of trainee doctors.”- Dr Vinay Shankar
