Eko Health Introduces CORE 500™ Digital Stethoscope with AI-Powered Heart Disease Detection, 3-Lead ECG, and Advanced Audio Features

Wednesday, June 28, 2023

Eko Health has unveiled its latest medical device, the CORE 500™ Digital Stethoscope, designed to provide non-invasive heart and lung disease detection at the point of care. This FDA-cleared device offers healthcare professionals (HCPs) an advanced tool for diagnosing and detecting early signs of heart and lung diseases.

The CORE 500™ Digital Stethoscope is the result of over a decade of Eko Health's expertise in digital auscultation, which involves listening to heart, lung, and body sounds. This innovative stethoscope combines artificial intelligence (AI) software, high-fidelity audio capabilities, a full-color display, and a 3-lead electrocardiogram (ECG), making it an essential device for accurate patient assessments.

One of the key features of the CORE 500™ is its ability to assist in the detection of heart disease indicators within seconds, thanks to the integration of powerful AI algorithms. This capability not only saves time during routine examinations but also improves the accuracy and confidence of healthcare professionals in identifying various cardiac conditions.

The stethoscope provides HCPs with instantaneous patient auscultation data on a full-color display, including heart rate and ECG tracing. Supported by Eko Health's FDA-cleared AI products, the stethoscope can quickly identify abnormalities like AFib, bradycardia, and tachycardia. With up to 40x sound amplification, active noise cancellation, and three audio filter modes, the CORE 500™ delivers a precise and enhanced audio experience. Its TrueSound™ technology, featuring in-ear speaker technology, offers optimal sound filtering and reduced background noise for accurate sound reproduction during patient exams.

The CORE 500™ Digital Stethoscope is designed for use across various clinical specialties, including structural heart, primary care, urgent care, emergency medicine, home care, and virtual care. It boasts a familiar stethoscope design and intuitive workflow, ensuring ease of use for healthcare professionals. The stethoscope is also lightweight and made from shatter-, splash-, and scratch-resistant materials, ensuring its durability in demanding healthcare environments. Its fast-charging lithium-ion battery is optimized for multiple shifts and can last up to 60 hours on a single charge.

In addition, the CORE 500™ is compatible with Eko Health's SENSORA™ Cardiac Disease Detection Platform, an advanced machine learning software that enhances the sensitivity of cardiac murmurs detection, enabling health systems to improve downstream care and patient outcomes. It also seamlessly integrates with Eko Live Stream, allowing synchronous listening for virtual teams, real-time recording, analysis, and sharing of auscultation data from any location.
