We recommend the “Remmie PRO on App Store” and "Remmie PRO on Play Google Store" App be used without creating an account. Any user can use the product and save records in the phone/tablet’s photo gallery and decide what to do on their own. 

We understand the device requires to be charged using a USB cable. How long/ how many times can one use it with a single charge?

With a single full charge, it could last for approximately 15 times of 5 min per use. We recommend a full battery charge and thorough alcohol wipe cleaning of the lens before each use.

The images appear blurry, is that a defect?

Oil, finger touch or dust could result in dirty lens and blurry images. We request the users perform a thorough alcohol wipe of the lens at the tip of the white LED before EACH use. Image quality is something we are proud of, at the focal length (approximately 1 cm within the object to be imaged) and with a clean lens, images should appear very clear. Please reach support at if you still get a blurry image after cleaning the lens. 

I'm using Remmie PRO on an iPAD and every time I click on "Connect", the App crashes, the same issue does not occur on the iPhone, what is the cause?

We had discovered if you disable the location feature in the settings for the Remmie Pro, the APP will crash after clicking on the “Connect” button. The location service is required for the Remmie Pro to locate the otoscope and connect to it automatically. Please check on the Location settings in the iPad Settings - Location must be configured to “While Using”. Please reach support at if you still see App crashing after turning on the Location Settings.

How many disposable specula are provided in each pack and in case if one needs to buy only the specula, is that possible? And how many times can a single specula be used before disposing it off?  

Current Remmie PRO package provides 25 specula per Box. Specula can be re-ordered from the Remmie Website for bags of 10/pack: We recommend single use disposal of the specula.

In case the ear pain is caused due to accumulation of excess wax in the ear, is the device designed to remove the wax or only helps with the diagnosis? 

No, physicians do not recommend removing ear wax with any rigid object in the ear. Remmie PRO is an otoscope for assisting diagnosis, and not meant to be a wax removal tool. Patients should consult a physician for wax removal. Over the counter recommendation is typically an oil or a wash, NEVER a wax pick tool for consumers.

Are there any reviews of users of Remmie Health available that can be shared with us?

We have a few reviews on the Amazon or Remmie website. Any complaints on Amazon about connection is resolved in the Remmie PRO where it’s now streamlined and much improved.

Does the otoscope also help in the detection of thyroid?

It should be used the same as how doctors use an otoscope. Detection of specific disease is a physician’s decision, if using an otoscope is part of the examination required by the physicians, then Remmie could be used in place.

How deep into the ear/ throat can the otoscope be inserted safely?

The depth is typically 0.5-0.8mm depending on the size of the individual anatomy, before the specula’s cone width would be wider than the ear canal and blocking any forward motion deeper in. The focal length of the lens is 1cm, so the otoscope should never touch the eardrum of any sensitive tissue in the ENT.

What is the material used to make the device and the specula?

Housing of the otoscope is ABS plastic. Specula is Thermo-plastic elastomer rubber 85°
