Viera, FL (PRWEB) March 22, 2016
RNK Products, Inc. (RNK) has been awarded a patent covering its PCP-USB Stethoscope by the US Patent Office adding to its portfolio of patents for stethoscopes serving the telemedicine market.
The PCP-USB Stethoscope appears as a plug-n-play USB audio device to a PC, making it a popular choice in the institutional telemedicine market. Plus there are no buttons or dials which make it a simple yet sleek “Grandma Friendly” design that is easy to use by patients in their own home.
“What differentiates the PCP-USB Stethoscope from a typical electronic stethoscope is that it uses stethoscope signal processing software on the PC that elevates it to a telemedicine stethoscope. Since that software is needed for the telemedicine capability, the FDA requires that it be cleared at the same level (Class II) as the stethoscope itself,” states Rich Abbruscato, founder and CEO of RNK.
With its high quality and superior performance, the PCP-USB Stethoscope is included in high-end telemedicine stations and carts offered by the major telemedicine system companies. In the Veterans Administration (VA) health system, it is not only used in hospitals, but its easy-to-use design makes it ideal for the VA’s program for telemedicine into veterans’ homes.
That combination of high performance and ease of use makes the PCP-USB an ideal choice for Telemedicine Web Service’s Concierge Telemedicine system, which offers an affordable, consumer oriented telemedicine system, not just a telephone call with video.
