Jan 6th 2014 – Returning for their second year at Arab Health in Dubai, Firefly Global looks to capture the same excitement and fervor they saw last year with their updated Video Otoscopes and Video Dermatoscopes, now optimized for the incredibly exciting field of telemedicine.
Already popular in ENT, Primary Care, Audiology and Dermatology, Firefly Global is now coupling the power of video conferencing with their high quality, inexpensive cameras, helping organizations expand rapidly into telemedicine opportunities. Their wireless and wired cameras are considered digital USB imaging devices, making integration with video conferencing products, such as VSee or Vidyo, quick and easy. Once such group, Vicwest Community Telco, started their Telemedicine efforts after the Australian Government launched its Telehealth initiative. Gareth Hagebols of Community Telco had this to say:
“We’re deploying Firefly video otoscope and Firefly digital dermatoscope cameras throughout rural Australia as part of our Telemedicine program. They have an ideal solution for remote locations due to their size, picture clarity and cost.”
Another organization, Be Like Brit, is providing an orphanage and healthcare to the children of Haiti. Scott Johnson, the Director of Communications at the Disaster Medicine & Emergency Management Fellowship at Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, said:
“Firefly has created great tools to provide telemedicine consultations from the Be Like Brit orphanage in Haiti to doctors anywhere around the world. We were able to transmit images of the tympanic membrane with the digital otoscope with such clarity that you could see the blood vessels as clearly thousands of miles away as if you were there in the exam room. This was done over a wireless broadband connection in Haiti. Everyone was incredibly impressed. Thank you, Firefly Global.”
Firefly Global is in the business of making high quality, affordable, video otoscopes and digital dermatoscopes for organizations worldwide. Firefly wireless and wired cameras are small, easy to use and standards-based, making integration with video conferencing solutions quick and easy. Already popular in Ear-Nose-Throat, Primary Care, Audiology and Dermatology, the number of Telemedicine groups using Firefly are multiplying rapidly. Firefly Global can be found at Arab Health in US Pavilion booth 1F35 from January 27th through January 30th.
