What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

What is the one thing that is used as a symbol for a doctor/physician?

Whenever you see a person with a stethoscope around his/her neck, you instantly identify them as a doctor/physician. The basic motive of our product is to change the symbol. 

The stethoscope has been used for a long time and the shape has never changed. The traditional stethoscope hangs around the neck of physicians/doctors, so that they can listen to the heart beat of the patients. 

According to our study, many doctors feel pain in their ears after using conventional stethoscopes for a length of time. In addition, if there is a leakage in the tube, it is harder for the physicians to listen to the heart beat properly. 

We have tried to address these problems faced by doctors.

Introducing the first of its kind hand held blue tooth stethoscope. The device is no bigger than the size of the adult palm and can be carried in ones pocket, addressing the issue of pain due to excessive use and leakage.

Here is how it works:

The hardware is based upon a small printed circuit board, which contains a small digital audio amplifier. A conventional stethoscope resonator diaphragm is attached to a condenser in the circuit. The heart beat picked up by the diaphragm is converted to an electronic signal by the condenser, the signal is then filtered and amplified, it is then transmitted to a Bluetooth transmitter that can be received through a speaker or an ear piece by the doctor. 

Thank You (yes, YOU)

Thank you for taking time to visit our product, even if u do not pledge anything towards it. 

Risks and challenges

We are still looking into manufacturing partners and things are fairly open-ended until then.

Although the product prototype is now in final stages, we are still not sure how the senior doctors/physicians are going to respond to it. According to our own research (while speaking to different doctors), all of them think it is a nice product and that new generation of the doctors (tech savvy people) are definitely going to use the product.

    A photo, remembering the old days

    Remember how we used to send out the printed photos in the mail (not email, in actual mail). We have lost that connection with the old memories and hard copies we used to have, it is all digitial now. We want to have that back in our life, so we would be sending out a photo of the product with the signature of the person who thought about this product (will be kept secret until the product is live) delivered at your physical address.

    T-shirt for heart

    We are going to provide you a t-shirt that would have some wording and heart printed (right above your actual heart). We have not yet finalized the wordings and are open for suggestions. We will initiate a poll once the backers for t-shirt are reached to the maximum number, and thus be finalizing the wording.
