Electronic Stethoscope Prevents Spread of COVID-19

The device is 100X more sensitive than typical acoustic stethoscopes.

A recent Medgadget article discussed an upgraded version of the stethoscope that’s intended to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The device, developed by Thinklabs Medical, is known as the Thinklabs One, and it’s the smallest and most powerful stethoscope in the world.
