Back Download

SmartCheck converts virtually any smartphone into an otoscope, allowing ear infections to be diagnosed remotely. It originated in response to the need to spare sick children the stress associated with a visit to the medical practice. The device can be easily and securely connected to a smartphone, and it works like a doctor’s otoscope by magnifying and illuminating the auditory canal and eardrum to enable closer examination. A patented alignment feature helps the user to slide the device accurately over the smartphone camera lens. The system includes an app which gives step by step assistance with capturing, saving and sending the images.

Statement by the Jury
