Taking your health into your own hands is getting easier everyday thanks to innovative devices like the Handyscope. The Handyscope is an attachment for the iPhone that instantly turns it into a dermatoscope.

A dermatoscope is used to examine moles and other skin abnormalities that may be potentially harmful. The Handyscope slides onto your iPhone and sits flush against the skin taking pictures with its 20x zoom and polarized LED lights. Photos from the Handyscope can be emailed to doctors or uploaded to a database for instant expert opinions.
