The otoscopic add-on was designed to potentially save a trip to the doctor's office in the event of an ear infection.
"CellScope's clip-on otoscope helps pediatricians increase the standard of care by creating a visual history of the middle ear and allows parents to save time by allowing ear infections to be diagnosed and treated remotely," CellScope's website explains. "Ear infection is the number one reason why children visit pediatricians and hits 75 percent of kids by age six, resulting in over 30 million doctor visits per year in the U.S. alone."

CellScope also has a clip-on dermascope that allows users to capture and submit highly magnified, diagnostic-quality photos of their skin. With the device, patients can have their moles, skin rashes and irritations diagnosed from the privacy of their own house.
