The challenge was to ensure GEIS would be a lightweight and ergonomic solution to remote patient diagnosis. Unlike other devices, anyone should be able to pick up the camera and operate it within seconds. Working efficiently with the Visionflex regulatory team, all design outputs were compliant for ISO 13485.
The Visionflex General Examination Camera (GEIS) is a Class 1 medical device. It’s an integral part of a state-of-the-art solution to the problem of remote patient imaging and diagnosis, facilitating detailed examinations in one quick and easy online consultation. It’s a handheld high-definition video camera with integrated LEDs that can work within the Visionflex operating system or independently via USB directly to the computer, which offers greater flexibility and commercial opportunity.
With high intensity LED illumination, increased detail means a more accurate diagnosis can be given. The Visionflex GEIS camera and associated telehealth platform are now in the market and currently being trialled by organisations such as Royal Flying Doctor Service, remote health centres in outback Australia, Hunter Correctional Facility and even Dawson Station in Antarctica.
