The Russian company Laeneso, developing the Helsnet National Technology Initiative market, has developed an electronic stethoscope based on artificial intelligence technologies that will allow you to assess your lung conditions at home and detect signs of pneumonia, COVID-19 disease caused by a coronavirus, and other diseases in time. The Information Bureau of the NTI reported this to TASS on Thursday.
The device reads and analyses data that is stored in the application on the phone. The user can share this information with the doctor by email or in a messenger.
The device is based on the intellectual analysis of acoustic information that the system extracts from the background noise accompanying the work of the lungs. The device is programmed to search for pathological sounds that indicate the development of inflammation. When determining such signs, the stethoscope recommends that the owner consult a doctor.
In the world, the Russian development has some analogues, but “these devices either do not transmit sound wirelessly or do not have a high-quality neural network for analysis,” TASS was told in the department citing the co-founder of Laeneso, Andrey Myaskov.
