2017 INNO-vation Disruptive Challenger
Stethoscopes are widely used in the medical field as devices to listen to sounds from the heart (hearbeat) and lungs (breathing). The "super stethoscope" is currently under research and development for the automatic diagnosis assistance function of cardiac diseases and the social implementation of remote auscultation, but it is an extension of the current conventional stethoscope. On the other hand, the concept of the proposed "Steth♡scope," or 'Super Stethoscope,' is a little different, and we will conduct research and develop prototypes to quantify the autonomic nervous system based on the loudness of the heartbeat and heart rate variability.
