Optical Stethoscope / Medical Device

Optical Stethoscope
Optical Stethoscope

Optical Stethoscope is an assistive device for doctors. It expresses internal sound of human body in waveform. Doctors can make better diagnosis by using additional visual information from the device. The device automatically quickly displays basic information such as the heart rate. Using Optical Stethoscope, doctors utilize both their auditory and visual senses to make better diagnosis. Medical students, not yet familiar with the sound of internal organs, should find the device useful for education. Also in emergency situation, the device enables fast and accurate diagnosis without complicated devices.
