Getting to the doctor’s office isn’t always easy. But the creators of the TytoHome — by TytoCare — hope to eliminate that trip altogether. Its hand-held device measures vitals. It examines heart, lungs, ears, skin and throat with special adapters.

And video­-conferences with a doctor to monitor the metrics in real time. The company’s CEO Dedi Gilad said: “It transforms primary care by putting health in the hands of consumers.”
