HD Medical to Showcase ViScope Visual Stethoscope in Houston

HD Medical will exhibit at Medical World Americas, where they will be demonstrating their new state-of-the-art visual stethoscope, ViScope™. This innovative stethoscope offers a unique integrated visual display that lets medical professionals perform dynamic auscultation™ and “see” the heart sounds they hear in real-time visual waveforms. The ViScope visual display is complemented by high fidelity sound quality and amplification up to 30 times louder than a traditional scope for unmatched clarity. HD Medical has invested over a decade refining its proprietary noise reduction technology.

ViScope records patient heart sounds for 10 seconds capturing the first heart sounds, often the most telling for healthcare professionals. The scope’s heart sound recordings can be transferred to a PC configured with the ViScope bundled software to access a tunable filter that provides the ability to select specific parts of the heart sound to listen to, such as S1/S2, S3/S4, etc. ViScope’s value as a screening tool for early detection of cardiac defects has been validated through multiple clinical trials.

“Uniquely ViScope records and documents heart anomalies for today’s evidence-based world enabling it to serve as a stethoscope modality for electronic medical records (EMR),” said Muthu Krishnan, Senior Vice President of Business Development for HD Medical. “Additionally, ViScope performs remote patient monitoring supporting telemedicine applications for rapid patient screenings.”

“HD Medical joins an impressive roster of thought leaders and innovators in the medical landscape from across the world,” notes Christian Piencka, Director of Marketing for Medical World Americas. “The caliber of organizations involved and diversity of our attendees and exhibitors is sure to make this event a premier platform for advancing patient care.”

ViScope has been awarded the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510 (K) clearance and is undergoing certification for CE compliance. ViScope is sold from the website and through HD Medical’s network of resellers in the USA.
