Stethophone turns iPhone into FDA cleared stethoscope

Techstination feature for Thursday, February 22, 2024

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Stethophone is the name of a new app …on the Apple side only at first…designed to act as an FDA cleared application turning a smartphone into a high end medical stethoscope.     Mark Opauszky, CEO of Sparrow BioAcoustics began work on the technology after recovering from a flesh eating disease that nearly claimed his life a few years ago…

“And you start to realize just how much you are a participant in your own recovery.  And so one of the things I did when I got out was I said look, , the next thing that I dedicate my life to professionally, needs to help a lot of people.”

And the hope is the Stethophone will do just that…allowing meaningful data and sound to be transmitted instantly to medical professionals from anywhere.   Learn more at
