AMD’s General Exam Camera has 'the additional benefit of a polarizing filter that could eliminate the glare of light on moist or reflective surfaces'
Chelmsford, MA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 18, 2011
An independent assessment of telemedicine exam cameras has recently ranked AMD Global Telemedicine, Inc.’s General Exam Camera as a top performer, assigning it top marks during its review of several categories of performance.
The study, conducted by the Telehealth Technology Assessment Center (TTAC), compared AMD’s General Exam camera with another patient exam camera and several camcorders and point-and-shoot digital cameras. AMD’s General Exam Camera ranked highest in ease of use and overall scores.
Weighing just half a pound, the AMD-2500 General Exam Camera is the first analog camera to combine power zoom, auto focus, freeze frame capture, and electronic image polarization in one diagnostic device. The General Exam Camera is designed for single-handed use. With its auto power zoom feature, the AMD-2500 allows the clinician to control the camera and zoom feature all with the same hand, leaving them a free hand to tend to the patient during the exam.
The TTAC’s study also notes that AMD’s General Exam Camera has "the additional benefit of a polarizing filter that could eliminate the glare of light on moist or reflective surfaces,” a feature not found in any of the competitors’ cameras and a feature that is critical in aiding diagnosis in tele-dermatology and wound care settings.
This multi-purpose analog camera has wide applications in primary care, emergency medicine/trauma care, dermatology, ophthalmology, wound care and is an excellent device to document sexual abuse or child abuse.
AMD Global Telemedicine’s equipment and solutions are installed in over 6,100 telemedicine sites in 80 countries around the globe and the AMD-2500 General Exam Camera continues to be the most reliable and widely deployed patient exam camera on the market.
