The medical industry has been radically changed as a result of COVID-19. While it has always been a suggestion that people should engage in more preventative medical care to save costs and burden on the medical system from later more life threatening conditions, things have changed since April of this year.
People have been instructed to stay home unless it’s a medical necessity, children are forced to only have one parent with them at max during appointments, and treatments.
The system has been over taxed from the Coronavirus, and some providers have suggested online check-ups. Companies like Catapult Virtual Checkup provide an at-home kit that includes a wrist blood pressure reader, a measuring tape, and a blood collection kit. When you finish sending in your data, you even get a virtual check-up call with a nurse practitioner.
A company though, MedWand Solutions, wants to take that a bit further with their new clinical-grade telemedicine device of the same name.
This new device designed by the company to help shake up and change the healthcare industry, and what a time to be releasing it. Anyone can use it, from the patient, or their household members, sending the data through the device’s user-friendly platform. It’s roughly the size of an old school computer mouse, and transmit data in real time so medical providers can review the results live with their patients.
Even if used in office, this device saves the need for multiple devices for a medical provider as it can perform the tasks of tools and gain the readings listed below.
While they are still awaiting clearance from the FDA, Medwand is expected to be available for consumer purchase by the end of the year. Sign up for more information, or find out more at MedWand Solutions.
