Get control and peace of mind, record your heart and use that data when you talk to your doctor

Your doctor won’t always be there when you’re worried about your heart

Doctors use stethoscopes every day to listen for structural and rhythmic issues of the heart.  Murmurs, arrhythmias, and other unusual heart sounds are indicative of potentially life-threatening disease.

Symptoms often come and go or need observation over longer periods of time before they are taken seriously. There are millions of people in the USA who are at-risk or already have heart disease – many of them are undiagnosed or undertreated.

An advanced medical stethoscope in your hands

Get control and peace of mind, record your heart and use that data when you talk to your doctor.

-If you are on certain medications

Many medications can affect blood pressure, heart rate and rhythm.  Ask your doctor if you should be checking your own heart.

-If you suffer from conditions that include

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes or kidney disease
  • Respiratory disease
  • Deficiency anemias

No Special Equipment Required

People value dignity and convenience. With Stethophone there is nothing new to attach. Nothing new to charge, nothing new to pair, wear or stick to your body. Just download the software and hold the phone to your chest.

Did you know
4 out of 5 women have at times felt that health care professionals are not listening to them.
Women presenting with cardiac concerns are subjected to longer wait times in emergency rooms. 
Women with cardiovascular disorders are 50% more likely to be misdiagnosed and/or undertreated and have higher mortality rates than men.

Advocate for yourself – Always Bring Data

There are 8760 hours in a year, yet patients only spend around 10 hours or 0.001% of their time with healthcare providers. This means that the majority of symptoms occur outside of clinical environments and without empirical evidence to support decision making.

Peace of mind in your pocket. Easily record your heart and use that data when you talk to your doctor.

Hearing is believing

Listening to your own heart is a healthy habit. Producing medical quality visualizations and outputs is empowering.
