Background

Current practice involves multiple patient examinations using a stethoscope without sterilization. Increased concern with infection risk will impact this practice. As a result, inexpensive easy-to-implement solutions are sure to become widely adopted.

  • The cover comprises a seamless casing formed from a flexible, stretchable sheet material and has an open end for the introduction of the stethoscope head into the casing.
  • The casing is formed from a substantially thin, sound transmitting, flexible and stretchable sheet material which is substantially impervious to body fluids
  • The cover includes a receiving section that receives and envelopes the stethoscope head.
  • The disclosed cover is configured as a closed end tube of uniform diameter that easily fits all commonly used stethoscope heads.

Market Potential

This patent portfolio represents a significant increased volume opportunity for medical device manufacturers and distributors.
