Kids and germs go hand-in-hand, and so do coughs, colds, and ear infections. Dedi Gilad, Tyto Care’s CEO, learned this first-hand while raising his two children. Endless nights worrying, and frequent visits to germ-filled emergency rooms with long wait times made him realize there must be a better way. A way to see your doctor from the comfort of home.
It was from his experience that Tyto was born, a hand-held exam kit and app for connecting with your doctor for an on-demand medical exam, diagnosis, and prescription if needed, anytime, anywhere.
