VIERA, Fla. (PRWEB) April 10, 2020
RNK Products, Inc., a leader in telemedicine stethoscopes, is now at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19.
For almost eighteen years, RNK’s telemedicine stethoscopes have been used in top hospitals across the world, as well as in the VA to extend health services to our veterans and even used in the White House and on Air Force One.
Because COVID-19 is a respiratory disease, a video call (e.g. Skype or FaceTime) between clinician and patient isn’t enough. A stethoscope is critical for listening to lung sounds. Aware of this shortcoming, telemedicine companies are rushing to include stethoscopes with their systems.
In order to meet the demand created by COVID-19, RNK has significantly ramped up production.“Our supply chain is intact and we have increased human capital” says CEO and Founder C. Rich Abbruscato, “Whether this is a short-term bubble or a long-term shift in demand for telemedicine stethoscopes, we are prepared.”
RNK’s most popular model, the PCP-USB stethoscope uses a chest piece that includes an embedded amplifier plus an A/D Converter, Encoder, Formatter and USB interface that is recognized as a plug-n-play audio device. “It just works” is a phrase Abbruscato hears all the time. RNK’s stethoscopes are easy to use, don’t require batteries, don’t require pairing and have no buttons on them. They are simple for patients to use on themselves with guidance from a clinician.
Having FDA, ISO 13485 and EU MDD certifications, RNK operates globally and is seeing demand not only from the US, but throughout Europe and beyond.
