WARMSTETHOSECOPE / concept stethoscope

WARMSTETHOSECOPE
WARMSTETHOSECOPE

People who have seen a doctor must have the same experience, chilled by the stethoscope when it touched our skin. This experience makes us feel nervous before the auscultation, and even makes some toddlers cry, because of the uncomfortable touch. Beside, the cold excitement caused by the stethoscope is not proper to extremely weak patients.
Now, a new type of stethoscope, added the warmer (heating wire or thermal infrared), to warm up the skin-touching part of the stethoscope, can make patients feel more cozy with the touch. Through this new equipment, It can also change the impression of the medical devices are always cold to people.
