Teen Inventor Demonstrates iPhone-Powered Steth IO on Fallon Show

In a remarkable fusion of technology and healthcare, 15-year-old CEO Suman Mulumudi and his father, cardiologist Mahesh Mulumudi, have innovated a working stethoscope that integrates seamlessly with iPhone or Android devices.

This inventive device encases the iPhone, incorporating a diaphragm akin to those found on traditional stethoscopes. It captures heart sounds and channels them to the iPhone’s microphone.

An accompanying app processes these sounds, visually representing the heartbeats on the phone’s screen.

The young inventor recently showcased his creation, dubbed Steth IO, on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The segment, known as “Fallonventions” and sponsored by GE, highlights innovations from young inventors.

Alongside the Steth IO, Suman and his father are also developing LesionSizer, a tool aimed at minimizing unnecessary stent use during angioplasty.

Their startup, StratoScientific, has been gaining traction and recently won top honors at the WTIA Spring First Look Forum, outperforming 14 other startups.
