InstaMD was founded by a diverse group of individuals with expertise in a variety of areas, including medicine, technology and regulatory affairs. What we shared, and continue to share, is a passion for innovation and a genuine desire to increase access to quality healthcare. Our goal was to create a product that would not only be convenient and easy to use, but wouldn’t require the user to invest in expensive new equipment. Rather than reinvent the wheel, we devised a way to combine existing technology with simple medical devices to produce an affordable system that anyone can use!

Is it really reliable to capture the sounds of the heart by using a mobile device or microphone directly attaching to chest?
InstaMD has developed a patent pending electro-mechanical interface that works with any existing Stethoscope in the market. InstaMD’s interface device is capable of amplifying soft volume sound up to 20 times thereby reducing noise significantly, almost 95%, to deliver clear sound over the internet via PC and smart mobile devices. InstaMD Technology is very low risk. We are mainly making existing devices internet enabled.
Is it compatible with my system?
The InstaMD Web App works on any computer with Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Video conference is based on WebRTC technology and it seamlessly streams and records video on your computer’s browser. In addition, we also integrated 1-click screen sharing within the web app. The InstaMD Mobile App presently works on iOS devices (Android support will be available in the future). All the web functionality is available on the mobile app.
InstaMD supports most existing Medical Devices
Currently we are supporting any manual FDA approved stethoscope available on the market.
Our InstaMD App is currently capable of connecting to a USB-enabled Otoscope and streaming video. You can record yourself while taking vital from any device on the InstaMD App. Similar to stethoscope interface, we are working on direct integration with a Bluetooth supported blood pressure monitor, thermometer, oximeter, and weight machine. Add-ons will be released and future upgrades will be available in future.
What about the FDA?
This will require FDA clearance (510k). Final documentation preparation is in progress for FDA submission for 510k clearance.
