AMU team of researchers led by dr Honorata Hafke-Dys from AMU Institute of Acoustics (Faculty of Physics), have designed a new and intelligent stethoscope. They called it: StethoMe. The design was possible thanks to 1.5 M PLN invested in the project by TDJ Pitango Ventures, the Polish-Israeli innovative start-up fund.

StethoMe is an intelligent medical device designed to control your heartbeat and lungs in the comfort of your home. It is a wireless stethoscope that consists only of the chest piece, with a recording and analysis function that allows the interpretations of the recorded sounds. All the data is displayed on a small screen placed at the back of the device. Touch points are displayed through the dedicated app on your smartphone. The results can be sent to your doctor by the app, making a diagnose much quicker and more efficient.
Tests have already been carried out in several hospitals and in an anechoic chamber of Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań, Poland, and they prove that the device really does what it claims. StethoMe can also be used to precisely monitor respiratory diseases such as asthma.
Makers of StethoMe were European winners of the BioTech Award at the Startup World Cup & Summit 2018, the recipients, the Central European Startup Awards 2017 winners for the Best Social Impact Startup and were recognized as the Best Newcomer 2017.
