MedWand™ fulfills the potential of telemedicine. Created by physicians and medical device engineers, MedWand houses multiple diagnostic tools in a single, easy-to-use handheld device. With a MedWand on the patient's side, clinicians can conduct remote office visits, and through the real-time collection of multiple vital sign readings and key patient assessments, detect and follow numerous medical conditions from across town, or around the world. It can be used in several different modes. In addition to the real time remote exams, it can be used by Home Health Care, EMS, Hospice and Palliative care workers, as well as assisted living home monitoring environments. Medwand can also be used as a store & forward device.
Medwand contains 5 major sensor elements in an enclosure about the size of a computer mouse that work together through a single, simple interface to a host device. Each sensor can be controlled locally or by a qualified healthcare worker on the other side of the world through the Medwand Cloud and viewed real-time during operation. Data collected can be saved, notated, edited, and shared with any upstream EMR system.
