An otoscope is a tool doctors use to look in the ear canal with a light and an optical lens or digital camera. Doctors use otoscopes to check ears for infections and gain a better view of the ear canal, wax levels, and eardrum health. Most of these devices are waterproof and include replaceable ear speculum tips to protect the ear from accidental injury. Android otoscopes do not include their own display screen. Instead, you connect the otoscope to your Android phone or tablet to utilize the smart device’s screen, battery and memory. By using your phone, you can save images and videos taken with the otoscope on your device.
Almost all Teslong otoscopes work with Android devices. However, a few of the otoscopes we sell only work with the included screen, and a few are only available on Apple. Check before purchasing that the device you plan to purchase will work with your preferred device.
Yes, Android otoscopes are IP67 waterproof which means the device is water and dust-proof. The device is protected against effects of temporary immersion between 15 cm and 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. Do not leave an otoscope in liquid for longer than necessary as they are only tested for 30 minutes.
Yes, Android otoscopes are safe to use as long as you use them with caution. When used correctly, an ear endoscope is a fantastic diagnostic tool ready to help find problems in the inner ear. However, always use the included safety tips. These tips protect the camera from going too far into the ear canal and causing an accidental injury.
The biggest benefit of using an Android device is that they are compatible with USB and USB otoscopes are the least expensive type available. USB otoscopes are simple to use and provide a high quality image on the Android device’s screen. Also you can connect a USB otoscope to an Android tablet if you desire a larger screen. Images and video can be easily saved to the Android device using the app.
Doctors can benefit from this technology as well as they can display the inner ear on a larger screen, making it easier to see. Doctors can use the device to take images and videos and attach them straight to digital client files for easier access in the future. By connecting to an Android device, doctors can reduce exam time with higher levels of accuracy and more affordably. Veterinarians can also use these devices for animals and attach the record to digital pet files.
Teachers can use the scope and display as they do a walkthrough with their students. Furthermore, students can use the device on themselves or others for extra practice and fully understand the internal ear and how to examine patients. Next, you can often get a better image with a higher resolution screen using your Android device. With higher resolution, you can send more accurate images to your doctor, and they can, in turn, diagnose issues easier too.
Also, you can take higher-quality images and videos and zoom in more to get better visuals. As the device connects to your phone, you can also take it with you anywhere. Finally, using the device on your phone reduces cables and makes it easier to use the otoscope in any place or situation.
To use a USB otoscope with your Android device you start by downloading the manufacturer-recommended app to your phone, then you plug in the USB cord of the device. Start the app and you should see a live feed from the otoscope camera on the screen. Now you are ready to use the device
To use a WiFi otoscope with your Android device, you first need to make sure both devices are fully charged. Next, download and install the software for the device to your phone by searching for the device on the app store. Finally, you can access the app by scanning an included QR code on the box or manual of the device.
Now, hold the power button on the otoscope for a few seconds until the device powers on. You will see an indicator light turn on when the device powers up. Open Settings on your phone and turn on your WiFi if it's not already on. Connect to the otoscope via WiFi, and then you can run the software. Open the app and start using the software. Look for on-screen instructions to use the software.
An Android otoscope can be inserted into the ear to view the ear canal up to the eardrum, which is the part of your ear that separates the external canal from the middle ear. The inner ear is behind the eardrum and so an otoscope cannot be used to view the inner ear.
Where an otoscope is used to inspect the ear, nose, and mouth, an ophthalmoscope is only used to examine the eye.
An ophthalmoscope uses the same principles as an otoscope, but shines a light through the pupil to view the back of the eye and allows trained professionals to perform an examination. Our otoscopes are not designed, or intended to be used, as ophthalmoscopes.
Often, looking after our own health, or that of our family and pets, is extremely difficult if it’s not somewhere you can easily see with the naked eye. An otoscope gives you the power to better assess an issue to see if you need to seek medical attention, or simply better care for yourself or your family. Our otoscopes are high quality and affordable, so browse our entire range today.
If the Android otoscope connects via WiFi, then it should be compatible with an Apple device. However, if the otoscope connects using a USB cable then it usually won’t be compatible with Apple devices because iOS does not support USB.

A modern approach to earwax removal is to use a digital otoscope with a wax removal attachment. Teslong makes a number of devices that are safe to use because you can see inside your ear the entire time you are using the device. Digital otoscopes have integrated LED lights to illuminate the ear canal and give a perfect view of your eardrum.The soft silicone-tipped spoon attaches to the end of the otoscope and that combined with the camera gives you the perfect tool to scrape out pieces of earwax.
The No.1 cause of blurry images is ear wax getting stuck to the tip of the camera. Please use a cloth, alcohol pad, or a Q-tip to clean it off.
