KTwo unveils low cost tele-diagnostics devices

KTwo Technology Solutions, a 200 plus people Bangalore based company and an Intel India Design house vendor unveiled its Healthcare device targeted at rural and urban markets. Pathology and Radiology laboratories play a very vital role in the healthcare industry. However, setting up a lab is an expensive proposition and so labs are far fewer in number than needed in a developing country such as ours. CytoSight: The common practice today is that most of pathology labs in India merely act as ‘collection centers’ of samples which are dispatched to a nearby ‘reference lab’ which is supported by a Pathologist. Inadequate infrastructure for such collaboration between centers leads to reduced lab efficiency. KTwo’s CytoSight addresses this problem; CytoSight’s innovative imaging algorithm captures impressions of the pathology sample from the microscope and makes it available to the pathologist/physician situated in the remote and urban areas. This enables Specialist Pathology expertise available to rural/remote populations. TomoSight:Shortage of radiologists and inadequate infrastructure for collaboration between radiologist and the rural as well as urban hospitals has resulted in delayed diagnosis of radiology scans. KTwo’s TomoSight addresses this problem and makes the pre-captured x-Ray/CT/MR images available to the radiologist anywhere and anytime; TomoSight further enables the radiologist to give expert opinion instantaneously enabling Specialist Radiology expertise available to any remote location. Anant Koppar President and CEO of KTwo Technology Solutions said that “CytoSight and TomoSight” will help the small, medium and large hospital chains to extend their pathology and radiology services to cover a wider rural market and hence rural India will benefit from quality and specialist healthcare expertise now available only in Metros and big cities”. CytoSight and TomoSight are easy to use and can be operated with minimal training. They are Human Engineered for good user experience on any internet connection. As they are developed on the Intel Embedded Technology, it gives the added benefit of high performance, low power, wide acceptance, easy serviceability and very low total cost of ownership for the cost conscious rural market.”With excellent support and mindshare from the Intel Embedded Group in Bangalore, KTwo plans to roll out more innovative products on the Intel Embedded Platform for the growing healthcare rural and urban market on India” said Mr. Koppar. “With the launch of our India Design House program last year, we are enabling Indian design houses to play an increasingly active role in platform definition and design for customers worldwide,” said Sanat Rao, Marketing Director (Emerging Markets), Embedded and Communications Group, Intel South Asia. “KTwo was one such design company which signed up for this program. The collaboration between the two companies sees KTwo offering a unique design and Intel providing hardware and software support, technical consultation, training and co-marketing with KTwo. This is a great example of Intel architecture powering new applications.” About KTwoHeaded by Anant Koppar, KTwo Technology Solutions builds Last Metre Connectivity products and solutions.
