Antiinfective Stethoscope / Stethoscope

Antiinfective Stethoscope
Antiinfective Stethoscope

We are suffering severe pandemic in this year. This makes us to aware that there are some medical devices which do not meet the need to prevent infection. For example, wired stethoscope can not be used at the same time as protective clothing, stethoscope may bring infection risk to doctor or next patient after contact with patient's skin.The significance of our design is that we try to reduce disease transmission and increase communication between medical staff and patients by changing the way stethoscope is used in disease diagnosis. This may make the process of seeing a doctor more safe and healthy.
