RNK Receives FDA 510K Clearance on the First USB Stethoscope (Over IP) for Telemedicine
(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Viera, FL (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
Recently celebrating its 10th anniversary, RNK Products, Inc. continues its leadership in telephonic stethoscopes with the FDA clearance of its PCP-USB Stethoscope. The PCP-USB Chest Piece uses RNK’s patented piezo technology for picking up body sounds and includes an embedded amplifier, A/D Converter, Encoder and USB interface (additional patent pending). The plug-n-play PCP-USB Chest Piece is easy to install and easy to use, further enhancing RNK’s patient friendly line of stethoscopes.
Similar to the PCP-1 Chest Piece, the PCP-USB Chest Piece works with the sSOIP Anywhere software as part of the Auscultation Anywhere cloud solution. Auscultation Anywhere facilitates direct connections between clinicians and patients across NAT boundaries and firewalls. It can connect clinicians from their office, hospital/clinic or home to patients at a remote clinic, work place or home.
Auscultation Anywhere is a state-of-the-art cloud connection service that uses industry standards ICE, STUN and TURN just as do most up-to-date video conferencing services. It demonstrates that this technology works equally well for stethoscope data streams as for video/audio data streams.
“In addition to continuing to serve the institutional telemedicine market, RNK intends to address underserved market sectors such as small self-insured employers, urgent care clinics, and ultimately, consumers in their homes,” says C. R. (Rich) Abbruscato, CEO.
