DERMAL AND THROAT ADAPTER
This unique designed adapter can be used as a dermal adapter and/or a throat adapter and attaches to the hearScope in the same manner as a specula.
hearScope adapter can be used as a dermal adapter
USING THE ATTACHMENT FOR DERMAL IMAGES
The adapter is designed to be positioned with the edge of the adapter placed directly on the skin. It positions the camera the correct distance from the skin to simplify the zoom required to take images of moles and skin lesions effortlessly.
hearScope adapter can be used as a throat adapter
USING THE ATTACHMENT FOR THROAT INSPECTIONS
The same adapter is used to fit a tongue depressor. Insertion guides are available at the bottom of the adapter to simplify inserting the tongue depressor into the adapter. The length of the tongue depressor is flexible based on user preference. hearScope has LED lighting at the tip to assist with throat inspections.
