Novel Device Allows Consumers to be Medically Examined from Anywhere
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 04, 2016
MedWand, recent winner of the prestigious Health 2.0 Launch! award, will be showcasing its groundbreaking technology at this year’s CES in Las Vegas, Nevada. MedWand is the world’s first handheld device that combines several diagnostic tools for use with remotely-located medical providers, essentially creating a virtual medical examination experience. The innovation was regarded by Frost & Sullivan as one of the top 10 disrupters in healthcare last year.
Dr. Samir Qamar, MedWand creator and the tech startup’s CEO, will be performing the live demonstrations. “CES is the premiere venue to experience how technology will affect our future,” says Dr. Qamar. “We look forward to showing the world what the future of medical services entails, and it’s exciting.”
Robert Rose, MedWand’s lead engineer and President, will display MedWand technology at the MedWand exhibit at the Venetian hotel. “MedWand and digital health followers will be in for a treat,” comments Mr. Rose. “We’re going to debut MedWand’s new design, the one consumers will receive when we go into production.”
Dr. Qamar will be speaking and demoing MedWand at the annual CES Digital Health Summit, alongside notables such as Deepak Chopra, AliveCor’s Dr. David Albert, and MDLive’s Randy Parker. In addition, MedWand will be exhibiting and presenting at CES’ new BabyTech conference, geared towards parents who seek out new technologies to benefit their children.
