WiscMed donated nine Wispr Digital Otoscopes to the University of Wisconsin Pediatric Emergency Department. The WiscMed founders are all associated with the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health as well as practicing emergency physicians.

Because the device has a digital screen, it is not necessary to have your eye directly adjacent to the otoscope.
