Wosler Corp. Breaks New Ground in Telemedicine with Remote Ultrasound Scans in the Middle East

Wosler Corp., a leading innovator in telemedicine and robotic healthcare solutions, has achieved a significant milestone in the field of healthcare delivery with the successful completion of the first-ever teleoperated ultrasound scans in Saudi Arabia and Dubai, a year after its first successful teleoperated ultrasound scan across Canada, demonstrating the transformative potential of telemedicine technology in revolutionizing patient care worldwide.

The company’s flagship product, the Wosler Telerobotic Ultrasound System (WTUS), enables a remote physician to perform high-quality ultrasound scans on a patient located thousands of kilometers away, using a robotic arm that mimics the movements of the physician’s hand and transmits real-time images and data to the physician’s screen. The system also allows the physician to communicate with the patient and the local staff through a video and audio link, creating a virtual presence for the physician at the patient’s location.

The WTUS has been designed to overcome the challenges of limited access, high cost, and low quality of ultrasound services in remote and underserved areas, as well as to reduce the risk of exposure to infectious diseases for both patients and physicians. The system can be used for various applications, such as obstetrics, cardiology, abdominal, vascular, and musculoskeletal imaging.

A historic achievement for Wosler and its partners

The first teleoperated ultrasound scans in Saudi Arabia and Dubai were performed on February 13, 2024, as part of a collaboration between Wosler and its partners in the Middle East, namely the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (KFSHRC) in Riyadh, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) in Dubai, and the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU) in Dubai.

The scans involved patients with different clinical conditions, such as pregnancy, liver cirrhosis, and carotid artery stenosis. The remote physicians were located in Toronto, Canada, and used the WTUS to scan the patients in Riyadh and Dubai, with the assistance of local technicians who prepared the patients and operated the robotic arm. The scans were completed successfully, with high-quality images and data transmitted to the remote physicians, who were able to diagnose the patients and provide recommendations for treatment.

The scans were witnessed by several dignitaries and officials from both countries, who praised the achievement as a breakthrough in telemedicine and a testament to the strong bilateral relations between Canada and the Middle East. The scans were also broadcasted live on several media outlets, generating widespread interest and acclaim from the public and the medical community.

A vision for the future of healthcare

Wosler Corp. was founded in 2021 by Dr. William Oslund, a renowned radiologist and entrepreneur, who envisioned a new way of delivering ultrasound services to patients in remote and underserved areas, using the power of robotics and artificial intelligence. The company has since grown to become a global leader in telemedicine and robotic healthcare solutions, with offices in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Singapore, and customers in over 20 countries.

The company’s mission is to improve the quality, accessibility, and affordability of healthcare for everyone, regardless of their location, by leveraging the latest technologies and innovations. The company’s motto is “Healthcare without borders”.

The company plans to expand its operations and services in the Middle East, as well as in other regions, such as Africa, Asia, and Latin America, where there is a high demand and a low supply of ultrasound services. The company also aims to develop new products and solutions for other medical specialties, such as surgery, dentistry, and physiotherapy, using its proprietary telerobotic platform.

The company believes that telemedicine and robotic healthcare solutions are the future of healthcare, and that they will enable a paradigm shift in the way healthcare is delivered and received, creating a more connected, efficient, and equitable healthcare system for all.
