VEOS Product Family

The DermScope is the world’s first intelligent dermatoscope, designed to address all of the important modes of skin visualization. DermScope helps increase doctors’ confidence in diagnosis, while increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the exam. Images can be instantly sent across the globe for consultation. The VEOS system provides Dermatologists the ability to enhance their practice by offering a flexible and low cost solution for image capturing.

 

Product

HSD worked with Canfield Scientific to develop the HD1/HD2 (iPhone compatible) and DS3 (iTouch compatible) products in the VEOS family. The DermScope has drastically changed the way dermatologists examine, assess, and capture images of a patient’s skin health. The VEOS products integrate a powerful modular system to view, capture, tag, and store, adding a new level of confidence to the assessment of patient conditions and medical progressions over a period of time. In addition to these capabilities, the HD2 allows for sending and sharing images.

Challenge

Feedback from users of the previous Dermscope indicated that having the freedom to use the device as a standalone unit was strongly desired. The challenge presented to the HSD designers and engineers was to develop a dermatoscope that could function as both a standalone instrument as well as integrate with a smart device. The team worked together with the client on numerous renditions and testing approaches along the way. The team had to design a cover that would nest the iPhone onto the dermscope in a secure and repeatable position to match up with the lens. This integration and holding of the lens and cover for ergonomics and use demanded multiple prototypes and end-user feedback throughout development.

Design

The compact design fits easily in the doctor’s pocket and offers a comfortable ergonomic, intuitive feel in their hand. The VEOS has the ability to quickly switch between a variety of lighting and contact modes. When used in unison with an iPhone, the user can magnify an area for closer examination, tag it to an area of the patient’s anatomy, store it in a database, and communicate it to a remote location. For closer assessment of the skin surface, doctors have the option of attaching a glass contact plate for immersion fluid dermoscopy.
