Student health services at the University of Lappeenranta are currently testing a new mobile device designed for use at doctor’s receptions for providing remote consultation services. The device allows doctor’s to serve patients in remote locations, providing guidance and consultation based on interviews and video observation.

The University is testing this remote solution in GP receptions, psychological care offices, and guidance counselors. The service has received positive feedback from students and will be expanded further over the course of the fall.

In addition to a direct audio and video feed between the doctor and patient, the device can also be outfitted with accessories such as a magnifying lens, stethoscope, and an otoscope.
