An Acoustic + Electronic Stethoscope.
The Eko Core stethoscope was developed in 2015, and operates as both an electronic as well as an analog stethoscope. It reduces ambient noise and in the electronic mode, has 7 levels of volume control, making it easy to further amplify sound.
Telemedicine continues to expand and the Eko Core stethoscope seamlessly integrates into a patient’s medical record.

And all of this is done via a secure, HIPAA compliant app readily available on Google Play and the App Store.
