Health Benefits of the TytoHome Kit

With the TytoHome kit, your doctor can examine your heart and lungs using the provided stethoscope adaptor. They can check your throat with the tongue depressor adapter, and they can examine your ears with the otoscope adapter. With the primary Tyto device, you can take pictures of your skin, take your body temperature, and measure your heart rate.

Based on these remote exams, your doctor can provide a diagnosis. TytoCare doctors can provide treatment and prescriptions remotely for numerous common symptoms such as:

  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Earache
  • Congestion
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Skin rash
  • Constipation
  • Stomachache

Your doctor can also use the TytoHome device and Tyto app to monitor chronic health conditions and provide post-op care. For example, if you recently had surgery, Tyto can be used to monitor your recovery.

Additional Benefits

  • The TytoHome is beneficial for patients who have limited mobility or are unable to leave their house for other reasons. For example, maybe they have children or are the sole caretaker for others in the home.
  • People with chronic illnesses and autoimmune diseases may not want to visit a doctor in person because of the risk of cross-contamination. A virtual doctor visit allows you to continue to social distance or self-quarantine when needed.
  • Virtual doctor visits also save you time and money. A visit to the doctor’s office often means a lot of waiting. You also save time by not having to travel to the doctor’s office, and you save money on gas by staying at home.

In Summary

The TytoHome is a remote exam kit that can be purchased online. To use TytoHome, schedule a virtual doctor’s visit with a certified TytoCare health care provider in your state. Your remote doctor and TytoHome kit can help keep you healthy by providing diagnoses, treatments, and monitoring from the safety of your home.
