MobileOptx was founded by Dr. Natasha Mirza, a Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology at University of Pennsylvania, and Dr. Jason Brant a Fellow in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Pennsylvania.
It is a spin out of the University Of Pennsylvania Medical School Department Of Otolaryngology and the UPStart Program.

This is one of the few endoscope iPhone attachments that looks machine grade quality — many of the other concepts made look like disparate parts put together.
