NEW YORK, March 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Tyto Care, the healthcare industry's first all-in-one modular device and telehealth platform for on-demand, remote medical exams, today announced that TytoHome has received the prestigious Parent Tested Parent Approved seal of approval from leading consumer product awards organization PTPA Media. The awarding of the seal comes after a thorough product review process in which parent testers across the US trialed TytoHome over a 30-day period.
TytoHome was designed with families in mind. When Tyto Care CEO and Co-Founder Dedi Gilad's young daughter experienced frequent ear infections, resulting in time away from school and work, he felt there should be a more efficient way to diagnose and treat acute care scenarios. TytoHome was thus created to connect patients—families, seniors, those with chronic conditions, and those living in underserved or rural areas—to physicians for clinic-quality examinations and diagnoses, from any location, any time. TytoHome is bringing the convenience and accessibility of the on-demand era to healthcare, without sacrificing quality of care.
"The PTPA Seal of Approval serves as validation that parents are having positive experiences using TytoHome from the comfort of their homes," said Gilad. "Our solution enables parents to take control of their household's healthcare by performing examinations from any location, at any time, eliminating the hassle and wait for an in-person doctor visit and keeping families out of the ER and urgent care. The PTPA Seal signifies that we've earned the trust of our most loyal users – parents."
The PTPA Seal demonstrates a product's successful evaluation by unbiased parent testers from among the PTPA community of over 150,000 families. Recipients undergo a testing process by randomly selected parents across North America, at no cost to them. PTPA testers evaluated TytoHome with their families in real-life environments. Their feedback and evaluations were carefully assessed to determine that TytoHome met PTPA's standards, earning TytoHome the coveted Seal of Approval. Independent research has confirmed that the PTPA Seal of Approval ranks among the top two most recognized seals in North America.
"Parents trust other parents' advice more than anything else when it comes to purchasing decisions," said PTPA CEO and Founder Sharon Vinderine. "Providing parents with authentic experiences and approval from their peers is extremely valuable, especially when your family's health is on the line. The PTPA Seal of Approval conveys this earned trust at a single glance and we are excited to have TytoHome join our approved list."
The TytoHome handheld examination device enables comprehensive physical exams of the heart, lungs, skin, ears, throat, abdomen, and body temperature. The solution allows users to connect with a provider for the remote diagnosis of acute care situations 24 hours a day, seven days a week, no matter their location.
