Outline

We Pioneer, the experts in audio field, developed a new computer-assisted stethoscope using special technologies and knowledge regarding the high quality sounds. To minimize the artificial and environmental noises, we improved the fitting of earphones and modified the surface design of the device body so that gripping would be smoother. Finally, we succeeded in providing the special advantage of capturing weak sounds with this stethoscope. Together with the application, the stethoscope has a wireless connection to your PC or tablet to save the respiratory sounds.
