Dermicus clients range from both public and private health sectors and include regional health bodies, county municipalities, primary care centres, specialist dermatology clients and departments, wound management units, pharmacies and nursing homes.
Different settings, different needs

- Telewound care pathways with municipalities collaborating with wound specialists for treatments of patients with hard to heal wounds
- Pharmacies connecting with Dermatology specialists to diagnose pigmented lesions.
- Dermatology departments and clinics digitize their diagnostic and second opinion workflows

"We have been using the Dermicus app now for 4 months or so. This system has proved to be excellent."

Specialist, NHS Isle of Wight
“A major advantage compared to an analog dermoscope is the ergonomics. With Demetra I no longer suffer from tired eyes at the end of the day because I am able to use both eyes.”
Dr. Marco Andrea Tomassini
“The Dermicus App is an excellent tool for primary care clinicians, providing a reliable interface with a skin specialist. It saves time and costs and improves the efficiency of assessments."
