Riester stethoscopes are made of the highest quality materials and superior workmanship to assure outstanding performance. Their stethoscopes display considerable acoustic improvement over other stethoscopes. The primary cause of poor acoustical performance in most stethoscopes is acoustic coupling from the patient to the listener’s ears. To provide clear, audible sound for diagnostic purposes, the entire diaphragm of the stethoscope must be in contact with the patient’s skin. There can be no air leaking between the diaphragm and the user’s ears. In addition, earpieces that do not fit well can result in poor quality auditory performance with even the best stethoscopes.
The Riester stethoscope is designed with especially soft ear pieces that are comfortable and effectively seal the external auditory canal. They feature a metal screw thread that allows them to easily be removed and replaced. The chest pieces of the stethoscopes are CNC precision manufactured with a specially designed fiber reinforced membrane. The soft, flat membranes include a non-chill rim for better adaptation to the skin. All Riester stethoscopes are equipped with high quality tube systems that provide exceptional sound conductance and are latex free.
There are several types of stethoscopes available from Riester. The Riester Cardiophone stainless steel stethoscope includes a double-headed chest piece.
