Treating Patients in Remote Areas

The company swyMed just introduced the DOT Telemedicine Backpack at HIMSS 17 held in Orlando from February 19th to 23rd. The backpack enables connectivity for real-time mobile video consultations from any location to even the most remote area or even on the go.

The backpack weighs less than 20 pounds and enables field care providers to conduct high quality, reliable, and real-time video consults with physicians treating patents. Using swyMed’s patent-pending video technology, the backpack delivers smooth, reliable connectivity for mobile integrated healthcare at the lowest bandwidth in the market.

The backpack is equipped with:

  • Four high gain antennas
  • Redundant dual-modern connectivity
  • Integrated speaker/mic and digital scopes
  • 15 hour battery
  • Ruggedized, sun-readable table that connects through a USB port
  • An optional Femo mounting system for the backpack so the system can be swiftly snapped into an ambulance


“The backpack can be used in crisis situations as well as in community care programs,” as reported by Stefano Migliorisi, CEO of swyMed. “Paramedics are reducing readmissions by using ambulances connecting able to connect with neurologists for telestroke consults while on the move.”
