The Illumigyn Gynescope™ System
As part of its vision to expand access to vital care for women worldwide, illumigyn developed a complete platform featuring the Gynescope™ System, a revolutionary “gynecology endoscope” and cloud platform service with an accompanying mobile application.
The illumigyn Gynescope™ can be handled by any trained caregiver (OB/GYN, GP, Midwife, Nurse Practitioner, and Physician Assistant) so that women of all individual sensitivities can be assessed in a safe space. The HIPAA-compliant solution automatically uploads and securely stores images to the cloud. This allows a doctor or specialist to view the images remotely and provides women with access to their scans and doctors’ recommendations.
“This is another milestone in our vision to democratize women’s healthcare and bring advanced gynecological care to women worldwide,” said Mr. Ran Poliakine, illumigyn’s Founder. “Our deployments this month are aligned with our mission to bring our platform to women everywhere, in developed and developing countries, in population centers, as well as remote communities. This is our mission and our commitment.”
