Dermoscopy helps physicians in improving their diagnostic accuracy by 10-27% compared to diagnosis by the naked eye. In many cases, it reduces the need for doing an invasive procedure like biopsy.

Smartphone dermoscopy combines the existing features of a smartphone with dermoscopic add-ons. The available smartphone attachments are expensive and limited to specific smartphones.

Our clip-on is a novel, 3D printed smartphone clip-on that enables dermoscopy on any smartphone at an affordable price.


  • Provides 10X magnification with cross-polarization.

  • Image quality comparable with that of standard dermoscope.

  • Light-weight, modular and compatible with most smartphones.

  • Android Application
  • Image and video recording for skin conditions.

  • Organized storage of annotated data.

  • Encrypted patient data for security.

  • Ease of use.
