Design of a Multi-modal Electronic Stethoscope for the Digital Acquisition and Automatic Diagnosis of Auscultation Signals

The proposed research project aims to develop a multi-modal stethoscope, containing superior digitized heart and lung sounds, telemedicine capabilities and assistive diagnostics. This is achieved by leveraging new advancements in piezo, microphone, wireless and machine learning technologies. The project will investigate these technologies and integrate them into custom made electronics and mechanical designs to achieve an optimal digitized sound that provides superior auscultation capabilities to medical professionals for lung and heart sound diagnosis.
