InventHelp Inventors Develop Sanitary Stethoscope Cover (DHM-432)

PITTSBURGH, July 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Inventors from Cary, N.C., have developed the STERI-SCOPE, a reusable hygienic cover for stethoscopes.

"My job as a CNA and physician's assistant student inspired me to develop my idea. Our invention solves the issue of health care providers failing to properly disinfect/sanitize their equipment," said one of the co-inventors. The patent pending STERI-SCOPE properly disinfects and sanitizes the head of a stethoscope. This will help to maintain the quality and integrity of a traditional, medical-grade stethoscope. This will, in turn, prevent the spread of hospital and clinic acquired infections. This cover offers a reusable, eco-friendly design. In addition, it is hypoallergenic and durable. Furthermore, it is easy to apply and remove. This cover is ideal for hospital and clinical settings.

The original design was submitted to the Durham office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
