FotoFinder invented the handyscope, a tool giving a magnified, polarized view on the skin like handheld dermatoscopes. Additionally, it enables doctors to capture and save pictures of the skin. For the first time,
doctors can keep distance during the skin examination with a handheld device and see and evaluate moles on-screen. They can easily save diagnosis results or communicate with other doctors.
