The Wispr by WiscMed® is a new, innovative digital otoscope that solves the shortcomings of other devices. It delivers reliable access and a clear view of small or partially obstructed ear canals that are otherwise inaccessible with other otoscopes.

The ear exam procedure remains similar to traditional otoscopes although you will likely find that the exam is faster, easier and more accurate with the Wispr. The Wispr Digital Otoscope is truly the first of its kind, it features:

  • a thin disposable speculum
  • built-in nano camera
  • integrated LCD touchscreen
  • intuitive user interface
  • one button image & video capture
  • integrated USB port for download of captured images & video
  • anti-fog coating at tip
  • optical fibers to tip (no heat)

The Wispr - Truly the First of its Kind


“Our hope is that the availability of digital otoscopy in the office setting may improve our diagnostic skills and therefore lead to more judicious use of antimicrobials. This remains to be seen. Prospective studies need to be done, but it’s an exciting development.”

Dr. Ellen Wald

Chair, Department of Pediatrics

University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

“This is truly amazing. As a parent who was able to benefit from this technology in the Emergency Department, I can attest to how it enhanced the overall visit.”

Pediatric mode enables the display of seven pre-loaded images meant to appeal to children. This feature can be used to build patient comfort prior to the otoscopy exam, “What do you think I’ll see in your ear?”, or to have a light moment with the patient or the family after the exam, “Look what I found in your ear!” Pediatric mode is optional and by default is turned off.
It is implemented such that it will not interfere with your normal clinical flow. Pediatric Mode Video Link
