...MedWand increases the value of any telemedicine video visit by 10x, opening up a world of possibilities in virtual health.
LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) November 27, 2019
MedWand Solutions, Inc., a global leader in remote diagnostics, is pleased to announce that its remote examination device, MedWand, has been selected as a CES 2020 Innovation Award Honoree in not one, but two categories. Every year the CES Innovations Awards honors outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products. MedWand was awarded in the categories of “Health & Wellness” and “Tech for a Better World”.
Telehealth is one of the healthcare industry’s fastest-growing segments. With numerous telemedicine services in existence worldwide, most virtual visits are conducted via video with few, if any, examination capabilities. MedWand changes this.
Engineered to allow physical examinations during telemedicine consultations, the MedWand device contains ten diagnostic tools housed within a singular handheld unit that allows patients to be examined remotely over the Internet. The MedWand contains the following instruments:
1. Stethoscope to listen to heart, lungs, and abdomen
2. Otoscope for ear exams
3. Ophthalmoscope for eye exams
4. Dermatoscope for skin exams
5. Throat illuminator for oral exams
6. Pulse oximetry for oxygen levels
7. Pulse rate
9. Respiratory rate
MedWand’s chief engineer and COO, Robert Rose, who was present at the CES Innovation Awards ceremony in New York, says development of MedWand was incredibly complex, but equally rewarding. “It wasn’t easy putting ten medical devices into something the size of a computer mouse that weighs less than 5 ounces, but we did it. Our engineering team did a phenomenal job, and we look forward to showing our technology to the world at CES 2020. We are currently involved in the FDA and CE approval process, with clearance anticipated in Q1 2020.”
MedWand shall be present at CES 2020 alongside several technology partners (Dell, Intel, and Microsoft) this January 7th – 10th in Las Vegas, where MedWand Solutions, Inc. is based. The MedWand booth #44925 can be found in the Sands Main Hall in the Health and Wellness area. Visitors will be able to demo the MedWand device*, see various MedWand system packages, and meet the team members. Free prizes, presentations on the future of medicine, and live MedWand exams** are also planned.
MedWand’s physician-founder and CEO, Samir Qamar, is looking forward to CES 2020. “We are thrilled that CES recognizes the impact MedWand can have on healthcare and the world. Our vision was that patients should have the means to be examined from anywhere, reducing the need to travel for medical visits. With its vast array of diagnostics, MedWand increases the value of any telemedicine video visit by 10x, opening up a world of possibilities in virtual health. If you have the means to help others, wouldn’t you do whatever it takes to do so? This is what MedWand is all about.”
