In 1816, René Laennec invented the modern-day stethoscope. For 2 centuries, its design and functionality have remained virtually unchanged.
In 2013, three students from UC Berkeley (Connor Landgraf – CEO, Jason Bellet – COO, and Tyler Crouch – CTO) founded Eko Devices to invent the next evolution in stethoscope technology. In September 2015, Eko launched its first product – CORE – an attachment designed to transform any ordinary stethoscope into a smart medical device by wirelessly connecting it to a smartphone or tablet. With it, physicians are empowered to make better diagnoses and avoid unnecessary cardiology referrals. Today, CORE is used by thousands of physicians from over 700 institutions worldwide.
With the launch of DUO, Eko directs its cardiovascular technology to address heart disease – combining heart sounds with groundbreaking ECG technology. With cardiology-grade sensors, advanced medical engineering, and minimalist design, Eko aspires to build products that are useful, usable, and delightful to both physicians and their patients. And this is just the beginning.
