Amid the substantially increased challenges of hospital-acquired infection and cross-infection threatening healthcare workers and patients, Warp United releases today the TK-1 Disposable Stethoscope, a full plastic multi-scenario solution for a safer medical practice.
The lightweight (2.5 oz. or 70 g) stethoscope is the latest plastic version of the traditional medical acoustic device. The new solution is disinfectable and easy to handle by replacing metal parts with acoustically efficacious engineering plastics.
The TK-1 can be a fully functioning 31-inch dual-frequency stethoscope for a low-risk everyday medical practice. It is suitable for liquid cold disinfection or even EtO Sterilization, unlike the corrosive metal stethoscopes. In a higher-risk exposure scenario, the TK-1 is easily disposed of by incineration at a minimal environmental cost.
