Eko Health Unveils the CORE 500™: A Revolutionary Digital Stethoscope with Heart Disease Detection AI, 3-Lead ECG, and Enhanced Audio Capabilities
Eko Health, a renowned innovator in digital health technology focused on heart and lung disease detection, has announced the launch of their latest product, the CORE 500™ Digital Stethoscope. This groundbreaking stethoscope represents over a decade of advancements in digital auscultation, which involves listening to heart, lung, and body sounds.
The CORE 500™ is engineered to improve diagnostic accuracy and enable early detection of diseases. It combines artificial intelligence (AI) software, advanced audio capabilities, a full-color display, and a 3-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) to provide healthcare professionals (HCPs) with an essential tool for patient assessment.
With its cutting-edge technology, the CORE 500™ offers significant advancements in the field of digital stethoscopes. When paired with Eko Health's powerful AI algorithms, it can quickly detect indicators of heart disease, assisting HCPs in identifying various cardiac conditions with enhanced accuracy and confidence. This feature aims to save time during routine examinations and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
The CORE 500™ is the first stethoscope to provide HCPs with instant access to patient auscultation data on a full-color display, including heart rate and ECG tracing. It incorporates Eko Health's FDA-cleared AI products, which can swiftly flag abnormalities like AFib, bradycardia, and tachycardia within seconds. The stethoscope also features up to 40x sound amplification, active noise cancellation, three audio filter modes, and the latest audio innovation from Eko Health called TrueSound™. TrueSound™ utilizes in-ear speaker technology to deliver precise sound by filtering out background noise during patient exams.
Designed with a familiar layout and an intuitive workflow, the CORE 500™ is suitable for use across various clinical specialties, including structural heart, primary care, urgent care, emergency medicine, home care, and virtual care. The device is made from lightweight and durable materials that are resistant to shattering, splashes, and scratches. Its lithium-ion battery supports fast charging and can last up to 60 hours on a single charge, making it ideal for prolonged clinical use.
The CORE 500™ is fully compatible with Eko Health's SENSORA™ Cardiac Disease Detection Platform. SENSORA™ utilizes advanced machine learning software to significantly enhance the detection sensitivity of cardiac murmurs related to structural heart disease, providing health systems with the ability to optimize subsequent care and improve outcomes. Additionally, the CORE 500™ seamlessly integrates with Eko Live Stream, enabling real-time listening, recording, analysis, and sharing of auscultation data by virtual teams from any location.
