The otoscope has all the electronic for image processing in its compact housing and is only connected via USB cable. Therefore the camera is ideal for mobile applications e.g. together with a laptop. The appearance of the camera follows the Corporate Product Design strategy which we developed for the company XION. It can take images of both the inner ear canal as well as the outer auricle. The otoscope has a special base where it can be preheated and switched off when its stored.
