About

Health professionals check heart and lung sounds during every visit to a clinic because they are the most important markers of our overall health. Until now, there hasn't been a way to easily monitor and track this information in the comfort of our homes. 

Stethee is an elegant and powerful health device that allows us to easily capture and understand these sounds. It can empower us all to lead healthier lives. 

Every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything.

Stethee is the first device in the world, that allows you to Listen, See & Feel a heartbeat. 

 Stethee delivers a deep, rich clarity of sound with active filtering and equalisation direct to your bluetooth paired headset.

In combination these 3 levels of feedback, offers a deeply immersive and personal health experience unlike anything before. It makes it so easy to understand your heart and body sounds.

And it is so simple to use.

How Stethee works.

The LED ring follows colour conventions that we can all relate to instantly. 

 It detects a wide range of vital health information. More accurately and directly than wrist based activity trackers can ever do.

How is it Different?

All those wrist wearables and smart watches do not detect the true heart rate or heartbeat. They only measure the pulse from an artery in your wrist. Technically speaking the pulse and the heart rate are not the same thing.

Stethee detects a wider range of vital health information, more accurately and directly. 

 The Stethee App

Of course you can use Stethee just like a traditional stethoscope, or you can choose to pair it to your mobile device.

The free app lets you easily understand your heart and body sounds. It also lets you track and share this vital information.

A beautiful and simple interface for iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices. We are also developing for the new range of smart watches like the Apple Watch.

People living in remote communities will be able to track, monitor, send and share important health information with anyone they wish, where previously they would have to travel hours or wait days or weeks to access services.

 Share this powerful information with anyone you wish. Understand your health and manage it better.

 Use Cases

Students can learn to understand and identify heartbeats and body sounds in a way that was never possible before. They can share sounds with each other no matter where they are in the world. 

Multiple students can Listen, See and Feel the hearts sound of the same patient all at once! It makes learning so simple and easy.

Research

The research scope of Stethee is enormous as it can unlock data that we previously have never been able to obtain on a large scale.

At home

Keep Stethee at home in your medical box or at work in the first aid kit. In case of an emergency, you could save vital information and time and could provide invaluable insight to a health professional. You can use Stethee to listen for a heartbeat directly rather than checking for a pulse, which can be really hard to pickup. Stethee empowers you in many ways to manage you and your family's health better. 

Travel

Know that you'll be able to send real meaningful data to a health professional. No matter what situation or where in the world you are.

Elite Sports

It’s a powerful tool for elite athletes. Before training or before that big game, Stethee can give you the confidence to know that you’re in the absolute best shape you can be. Giving you the winning edge!

  • Have you ever felt your heart racing or had palpitations? With Stethee handy, you can record and share your heartbeat with your health professional. Because chances are that by the time you get to see your doctor the symptoms would have settled. With Stethee you've got the proof.
  • Use Stethee to keep track of your family’s vital signs. If a member of your family has a chesty cough, why not take out Stethee and monitor their lung sounds before you get a chance to visit your Doctor. Stethee can track and let you know once it senses that your lungs are functioning normally again.
  • Be better prepared, get more out of doctor visits by bringing this important data with you. Be prepared for an emergency by making your most important health information available for emergency responders.

Prototyping & Our Story

When we designed Stethee, we knew it had to connect with you on a deeply personal level. It also had to be a statement of simplicity of form and function. We feel it reflects the heart in so many ways. Precise, reliable, strong. Elegant in form and timeless in design. 

We have created a new category and set a high standard of personal health device.

Listen, See and Feel...Life. This is the journey that began early in 2013.

 User Testimonials

  • “To be able to listen and see Stethee beating in sync and to feel the vibration of my wife’s heartbeat coming out of my Stethee at work, while she was at home, really blew my mind. I won’t forget that first experience ". Dr Stanley, Cardiologist.
  • “Stethee does everything a normal stethoscope can do and so much more. Being able to compare a history of heartbeats and sounds going back in time, and then easily increase the detection to look for patterns between family members is simply a staggering concept. It can detect small changes over time, that you would never pickup by listening just with the human ear. With existing stethoscopes there's simply no way to track this. The research scope for Stethee alone is… phenomenal.”  Dr Reynolds - Cardiologist

  • "With the app, it’s really easy to send and receive heartbeats with friends and family or to your health professional, much like sending an instant message. It's amazing to watch Stethee come to life knowing that your feeling and seeing the heart beat of someone on the other side of the world. Jennifer Solone - Sydney

  • “A Professor in New York can share a sample heartbeat with a student in Dublin, Ireland, who can Listen, See and Feel the heart beat on his or her Stethee in real-time. What a way to learn! It also looks like a prop from the new Star Wars Movie!” Sonya Shipal - Occupational Health Nurse.
