YOYO. wireless stethoscope in contactless world / Medical device

YOYO. wireless stethoscope in contactless world
YOYO. wireless stethoscope in contactless world

Due to Corona, social distance have become as socially necessary as safety precaution like airbag. However in contactless world, there is a dilemma between two human desires, 'keeping distance for self-safety' and 'warmness through communication with the others'.

Therefore, I designed the wireless stethoscope YOYO to keep distance and communicate in medical field, which is mostly hard to keep doctor’s and patient's social distance. YOYO can take care of various socially disadvantaged people, such as baby patients frightened of cold stethoscope, young patients embarrassed at different gender doctor, and pregnant patients difficult-to-move.
