WiscMed enabled the conversion of the traditional analog otoscope, found in every clinical exam room and often used in pediatrics for the diagnosis of ear infections, to a digital solution. Ear infections are the number one reason for the prescription of antibiotics to children, often unnecessarily. WiscMed’s digital solution with a nano camera and a built-in LCD allows for the highest probability of seeing the eardrum and providing appropriate treatment.
