Eko: A Digital Stethoscope Add-On

Home » Blog » Design » Eko: A Digital Stethoscope Add-On

At times you come across novel designs and solutions and instantly think “Of course. Why hasn’t anybody thought about this before?”.

One such moment for me recently was finding out about Eko, a digital device that can be connected to almost every make of traditional analogue stethoscopes. Once connected, Eko automatically collects, amplifies and filters audio data recorded from the stethoscope’s membrane. This data can be analyzed with accompanying software in order to find patterns.

Eko looks like an excellent design that not only improves upon the UX of a proven device in a novel way but also provides additional benefits that before required more complex and expensive medical devices.
