New visual amplified stethoscope

"Many doctors and nurses suffer from poor hearing, making it difficult to auscultate their patients, seriously hampering their ability to perform a basic screening."

"The Cardionics ViScope aims to solve that problem by providing both amplification of the audio signal and a visual display of the phonocardiogram or phonopneumogram. The device is compatible with In-the-Ear or open fit Behind-the-Ear hearing aids, offering the ability to boost the signal 30 times over a conventional stethoscope."
