At Eko, we are committed to developing connected technology that enhances your clinical experience. The Eko Core Digital Stethoscope is the first and only electronic stethoscope to pair wirelessly with your smartphone and offer real-time amplification, visualization, and sharing of heart and lung sounds. Time Magazine named the Eko Core one of the Top 25 Inventions of 2015. Eko is the only stethoscope to have ever made the list.

The Eko Core offers 40X sound amplification and noise reduction with a frequency response range optimized for auscultation of heart, lung, and bowel sounds. We recognize the value of maintaining the ability to use the analog stethoscope you know and love, which is why we developed the ability to seamlessly transition between analog and digital modes at the touch of a button. The Eko Mobile App permits real-time visualization of heart and lung sounds and enables secure saving, sharing, and playback of recordings at the point-of-care. The Eko Web Dashboard allows you to access, review, and annotate your saved recordings from any web browser. All Eko Software is HIPAA-compliant.
