It could be argued that the smartphone is an immensely powerful piece of technology that goes underutilized by many, so the 'Steth IO' smartphone case is intended to add the same functionality as medical stethoscopes.

The 'Steth IO' case works by being affixed over a smartphone in order to be utilized to capture the audio sounds created by the lungs and heart. The case then goes to work to visualize the data into a convenient graph that can be analyzed by healthcare professionals and stored digitally in a patients file to ensure the readings are always on hand.

The 'Steth IO' is the design work of TACTILE and offers advanced functionality beyond what medical stethoscopes are capable of achieving.
