Zeriscope Augments Mobile Telemedicine Exam Kit with New Offering

Zeriscope announced Thursday that it has added a hands-free examination camera to its Mobile Telemedicine Exam Kit.

This new line-of-sight camera option allows a professional caregiver, located with a patient, to live stream medical examination and observation video to a remote physician supervising and directing the telemedicine exam. With the head-worn camera, the caregiver has both hands free to conduct the examination, allowing the remote video stream to continue uninterrupted.

Ideal for use by home health nurses, paramedics, or other remotely located caregivers facilitating telemedicine exams with physicians, the Zeriscope Mobile Telemedicine Exam Kit contains a variety of peripheral sensory devices and cameras. Web-based (cellular or wifi), portable and lightweight, the Zeriscope system outperforms cart based telemedicine systems at a fraction of the costs.
