Thinklabs Stethoscope App

I wish I had this when I was a medical student.

Thinklabs Stethoscope App
Visual Heart & Lung Sounds - Watch what you hear

Thinklabs helps you visualize and record heart sounds with your iPhone or iPod touch.

The App sets a new standard for medical device user interfaces, using iPhone's outstanding multi-touch interface.


- Record and Display waveforms and spectrogram in real time.
- Scroll and Zoom In/Out using multi-Touch user interface.
- Edit Sounds on-screen.
- Save Recorded sounds.
- Email Sounds and Images, along with notes.
Hardware - stethoscope and input device

To listen to heart sounds, an electronic stethoscope is required. The Thinklabs Digital Stethoscope ds32a has been tested with the iPhone and iPod Touch. An external Made for iPod / Works with iPhone audio input device with audio input jack is required in order to connect the stethoscope to the iPod. We recommend the Belkin TuneTalk.
