MedWand™ Turns Your Smartphone into a Digital Clinic
Consumers Can Now Hold Doctor Visits in Their Own Hands (Literally) Fall of 2020
By: MedWand Solutions, Inc.
"With the COVID-19 pandemic, we received many inquiries asking for MedWand to be available for individual purchase and patient use," said Samir Qamar, M.D., Co-Founder and CEO of MedWand Solutions. "Not only does most of the population already own a smartphone, smartphones also provide convenience, portability, and connectivity. In fact, most telemedicine appointments are conducted via smartphones. With this groundbreaking advancement, we can now get MedWand into the hands of mainstream society, and ultimately save more lives. I'm excited for the deep impact we're about to make in healthcare worldwide."
Created by physicians and medical device engineers, the MedWand is a cutting-edge telemedicine solution that enhances the accessibility, quality, and capacity of healthcare for patient and clinicians, regardless of location. When used by a patient, the MedWand can allow clinicians to listen to heart and lungs, obtain basic vitals, look into a patient's ears, nose, and throat, obtain an EKG, and more. All of this information gets sent in real time to a clinician who watches, listens, and interacts through a secure video portal on their computer, and starting this fall, on their smartphone. Exam data and recordings are stored in the company's HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based security system, keeping all files secure and easily accessible. A single clinician can even monitor multiple patients on a large scale from a single location. Patients also have the ability to perform guided self-exams to send to their doctors at a later time.
"We are eager to access the world's 2.3 billion Android smartphones with the Medwand later this summer, and another 800 million iOS smartphones by fall," adds Robert Rose, Co-Founder and COO of MedWand Solutions. "Yes, MedWand helps care for patients in their home, but it can also be used within the walls of hospitals, emergency rooms, and clinics to help provide enhanced, more efficient, and safer patient care for those potentially infected with high-risk pathogens."
MedWand anticipates being available for consumer purchase fall of 2020, pending clearance by FDA, also later this year. More details on smartphone capabilities and purchase options are to be announced.
The MedWand device includes a stethoscope, otoscope, dermatoscope, throat illuminator with camera, IR thermometer, ECG, and pulse oximeter (SpO2, pulse rate, respiratory rate). MedWand Solutions offers a Mobile SQM DOC (Digital Onsite Clinic) for pandemic management, Home DOC, Office DOC, and Mobile DOC.
