Our intelligent dermatology solution provides patients located anywhere on the planet with remote access to specialists to have any skin concern diagnosed quickly. 

This includes wounds, infections, eczema, psoriasis, skin cancer, etc.

The system also empowers dermatologists to be more effective by leveraging the power of human-supervised AI. 

Through the work on the Deep Space Health Care Challenge, our solution has already proved to save lives of Indigenous individuals in remote communities who have otherwise never seen a dermatologist.
