Digital Stethoscope & Thermometer
Product + Engineering + Production
CliniCloud is an Australian startup technology company offering consumers a digital stethoscope and a thermometer device that pair with a smartphone app. The devices can be used to make acoustic recordings and take temperature readings, and they can transmit these readings and recordings to a doctor in the course of a video visit via Doctor on Demand.
The complete experience.
CliniCloud came to D+I with a proof-of-concept for a stethoscope device. During the development of the CliniCloud Stethoscope we commenced development of a second product — the CliniCloud Non-contact Thermometer. D+I were responsible for the development of both products, including cables and packaging, from concept to production. This included materials research and testing for optimum audio quality, design for manufacture, and usability.
The CliniCloud relationship is yet another example of the D+I team’s expertise working with great Australian technology startup companies — and the results speak for themselves with CliniCloud receiving great feedback from all stakeholders.
The CliniCloud non-contact thermometer scans temperature via the superficial temporal artery on the forehead. It has the benefit of being able to capture the temperature of a sleeping child without waking them. The stethoscope uses a cord in the headphone jack rather than a Bluetooth connection to ensure high-quality lossless audio.
