Tyto Care Introduces Pulse Oximeter to Remotely Monitor Blood Oxygen and Heart Rate

Get access to a remotely guided doctor visit anywhere, any time, with Discovery Health and the TytoHome device

In the past year, there’s been a rise in untreated healthcare conditions as people, wary of Covid-19 exposure, have avoided important trips to their doctor. Social distancing is still the norm, but when this means that you or your family are not getting the healthcare attention you need, this measure may become counterproductive.

Enter the TytoHome mobile medical device — an award-winning, mobile medical device made available in SA by Discovery Health, that enables a remotely guided virtual consultation with a doctor — from the comfort of your home.

What is TytoHome and how does it work?

TytoHome is a lightweight and portable medical exam kit that includes an examination camera, thermometer, otoscope, and stethoscope. This allows users to capture clinical-grade images of the ear, throat, and skin, as well as lung and heart auscultations, which they can seamlessly share with a doctor in our network in real-time using the Connected Care platform on the Discovery website or app.

Using this data, the healthcare provider can offer their patient a diagnosis, treatment plan, and prescription if needed. The device is easy to use and your general practitioner (GP) will guide you through the consultation to get all the clinical images and sounds they need — making virtual consultations more accurate, and access to quality health care more convenient than ever.
