It’s a first of its kind announcement and achievement for eKare Inc., a medtech company based in metropolitan DC.
This week, the firm announced inSight 2.0 — “the first Google Tango-enabled medical app in the US.”
We’re told that eKare has previously developed inSight as the first truly mobile 3D wound imaging solution on the iOS platform.
inSight addresses the unmet need for accurate and consistent measurement in wound care. Traditionally, wound measurement are done manually using rulers and q-tips with up to 40% error. Building on top of its first generation product (based on Apple iPad & Structure Sensor), inSight 2.0 delivers the same level of accuracy and consistency on Google Tango-powered smartphones.
“This is one of those industry-transforming moments. 3D-sensing is becoming ubiquitous, and it’s going to redefine how we provide wound care in this country.” says Kyle Wu, MD, Chief Medical Officer of eKare Inc, in a provided media release.
inSight 2.0 is currently undergoing validation studies.
