Tyto Care CEO and co-founder Dedi Gilad said: “Receiving CE Mark approval is an important milestone for Tyto Care, and a major step in our continued strategic expansion into Europe and other new markets.

We look forward to working with European partners to provide this critical missing link and transform the delivery of traditional primary care.”
