What is TytoCare?

App and phone

TytoCare is an FDA approved lightweight and portable medical exam kit. The Spectrum Health app connects the exam kit to your provider, who will guide you during the exam. TytoCare exam kits allow for more in-depth physical exams from your smart device during video visits.

With the tools in the exam kit, you can capture high-quality sounds from your heart and lungs. You also can share readings of your heart rate and body temperature or create images and videos that show your inner ears, throat and skin. Your healthcare provider uses this information and other details you provide to make a diagnosis and offer a treatment plan and prescription, if needed.
