KIRCHNER & WILHELM has extensive experience in the design and manufacture of highly-sophisticated stethoscopes. This company has been designing innovative stethoscopes for over 60 years, thus contributing greatly to medical progress in clinical auscultation.
For this reason, the company has a separate Research and Development Department, in order to insure that technological advancements are made in the field of stethoscope technology.
A large number of improved stethoscope characteristics have emerged out of this company's many years of technological experience:
These include, the design of bell-type chest pieces, which greatly minimize the probability of the occurrence of air leakage, as well as membrane chest pieces, which, due to their oscillation characteristics, enable highly-sensitive acoustic sound transmission.
The bell and membrane combination stethoscopes can be switched from one sound sensor function to the other without compromising the acoustic characteristics of the stethoscope. A broad selection of sound conducting tubing as well as ear pieces that can be individually adjusted, ensure unaltered sound transmission to the ears of the examiner.
KaWe offers a broad range of ear tip designs, making it possible for the examiner to find an exact but comfortable fit, while at the same time maintaining the required acoustical integrity. This becomes particularly important with an increased number of patient examinations.
For many years, this has been KaWe's classic among its stethoscopes. The precision chest piece is made of solid stainless steel. The tubes, which are available in many different colours, with their integrated stainless steel head pieces offer the highest level off wearer comfort thanks to their soft ear tips. Each stethoscope comes equipped with two spare pairs of ear tips, a spare diaphragm and a name plate.
