Thinklabs Medical (Centennial, CO), a company that’s been focusing on producing high-end electronic stethoscopes, has unveiled its latest flagship model, the Thinklabs One. The device itself fits entirely into the chestpiece and works with any headphones of your choice. It can amplify sounds by more than 100x and provides a variety of audio filtering options to better hear heart murmurs, diastolic rumbles, lungs sounds, etc, etc.
The device can connect to tablets and smartphones to visually display the waveform of the audio using a matching app, which can also record and let you zoom in on specific spots in the recordings.
Additionally, the iMurmur app from Thinklabs provides a library of pre-recorded heart sounds that can be used to learn and maybe even compare against one’s own patients. The standard package comes with a set of in-ear headphones, and for the stylish physician there’s also the Beats Package that comes with Dr. Dre’s Executive headphones that feature noise canceling technology.
