“When it comes to medical diagnostics, clinical accuracy is not just important, but critical, and MedWand’s goal has always been to be the most clinically-dependable telemedicine device in the world,” says Samir Qamar, MD, co-founder and chief medical officer. “With FDA clearance, clinicians and patients everywhere can trust MedWand’s vitals and remote examination tools, and experience telemedicine on an entirely new level.”
MedWand combines multiple clinically accurate vitals sensors and an ultra-HD resolution camera into one, handheld, lightweight device.
