sometimes, stethoscopes can make us embarrassed, especially for female. For example, female patients may mentally resist male doctors who hold the stethoscope and touch their skin.

We take not only medical factors but also the respect to patients into account and designed the Distant Stethoscope. The preservative on the chestpiece can keep patients from doctor’s touch and embarrassment.
