3 New Products Reshaping Healthcare

THE ROUNDER
Innovator Health created Rounder (pictured above) to improve telehealth by moving from impersonal laptopbased consults to more life-like consultations. By using a combination of improved graphics, direct eye-contact technology, and a 3D video platform, Rounder helps patients forget about the hardware. The HIPAA-compliant conferencing technology can also operate on a 4G network instead of a high bandwidth connection.

INTUITAP
Combining spinal imaging and needle guidance in a handheld device, IntuiTap eliminates the guesswork, frustration, and pain of lumbar punctures. It uses pressure mapping to help find vertebral landmarks and identify the best insertion site, reducing both procedure time and number of attempts. It also measures opening pressure.

 

 

 

 

 

AIRBOX
In addition to pioneering the use of drones to deliver medications and blood products, Maryland-based ER doctor Jeremy Tucker has also figured out a way to make deliveries more secure. Using cellular and Bluetooth technology, his AirBox accepts and secures drone deliveries, and because it is solar powered, it can be used in remote and developing locations, potentially assisting in both pre-hospital care and disaster relief.

  1. Dr Dayton, thank you very much for the tremendous generosity and insight recognizing the potential our new telemedicine technology. For us at Innovator Health, our devices are just the beginning and an enabler as we believe a hands on approach and assisting in all aspects of a telemedicine program critical to our customer’s success. It is nice when your partner is a physician too and knows this first hand! From telemedicine education, training, program development, financial reviews, ROI, simplification and customer acceptance all matter in changing a culture from top to bottom. Just selling the equipment and hoping they use it is just not going to work and we are trying to change the trajectory! Thank you again and best wishes!
