Saitama, Japan — It’s hard to believe that with all of the breakthrough advances in healthcare over the years, the stethoscope, one of the most essential medical tools, has remained unchanged for 200 years. Cue the U scope, a reinvention of the stethoscope that’s elegant, comfortable, and offers incredible sound quality and practicality. What’s even more surprising is that this invention comes from Classico, a design firm that developed beautiful, tailored lab coats for doctors.
Why this matters:
The U scope underscores the importance of the role of design in changing the healthcare experience for all audiences. There are so many tools, processes, and environments that are ripe for disruption in this industry, and we play a key role in helping our clients lead the change.
