“By taking advantage of the power of smartphones, we’ve been able to produce a video capture solution at a fraction of the cost of traditional towers,” Dr. Matthew Bromwich, Otolaryngologist and Co-founder of Clearwater Clinical.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) September 22, 2014
Following 14 months of field testing by more than 2,000 physicians, today Clearwater Clinical announced the general release of its ground breaking ClearSCOPE Endoscope Adaptor for smartphones. ClearSCOPE enables health professionals to capture images and HD video from virtually any endoscope and smartphone.
ENT and Urology specialists developed the ClearSCOPE smartphone adaptor in response to frustrations over the cost, encumbrance and slow innovation cycle of endoscopy video technology. “By taking advantage of the power of smartphones, we’ve been able to produce a video capture solution at a fraction of the cost of traditional towers,” Dr. Matthew Bromwich, Otolaryngologist and Co-founder of Clearwater Clinical.
In addition to costing less than 1% of traditional video towers, the ClearSCOPE smartphone adaptor offers unique advantages including:
i. Mobility: 100% mobile, enabling wireless recording and viewing
ii. Remote consultation: immediate access to images and videos for sharing with other physicians
iii. Visual teaching aid: ideal for reviewing procedures or cases with residents
iv. Patient communications: uniquely suited for showing images and videos to patients to help them better understand their medical condition
ClearSCOPE’s unique design allows it to be used with virtually any smartphone, including the latest iPhone and Samsung models. This enables physicians to take advantage of the rapidly improving camera technologies in smartphones.
“Harnessing the power of mobile technology is helping doctors perform tasks and communicate in ways not previously possible. At Clearwater Clinical our bold idea is to create mobile point of care solutions that let patients benefit from improved collaboration”, Mike Weider, CEO Clearwater Clinical. “The ClearSCOPE Endoscope Adaptor can be used to help reduce patient wait times and unnecessary specialist referrals. Due to its lower cost, endoscopy applications can be introduced into practices where it might otherwise have been cost prohibitive. And residents in teaching hospitals can benefit from having access to more visual teaching aids. ”
ClearSCOPE is a Class 1 medical device, listed with Health Canada, the FDA and bears the CE mark. The ClearSCOPE Endoscope Adaptor is available from the company website at http://www.clearwaterclinical.com/clearscope/ and select international resellers. The product will be officially launched at the AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting and OTO Expo in booth number 767 on September 21-24 in Orlando, FLA.
