TOKYO, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Classico, Inc. put "U scope" on the "INDIEGOGO" crowdfunding site on February 8, 2016, to offer the medical community a new product which will bring about the first revolution to stethoscopes since the first such device was developed 200 years ago.

The structure of stethoscopes -- devices that most medical practitioners have used at least once and that some of them wear everyday depending on their specialty -- had remained almost unchanged since the first such device was developed in France in 1816. Classico has developed "U scope," a revolutionary stethoscope that is compact and stylish. This new stethoscope is designed to minimize its burden on the ears of medical practitioners in response to complaints from them that stethoscopes cause them an earache if they wear the device all day. Furthermore, U scope is designed to make the silhouette of a person who wears it beautiful. Such a stylish device is quite unique for medical equipment.

Classico, which as a manufacturer of doctors' white coats is familiar with problems medical practitioners face, conducted thorough research on the essential significance of stethoscopes, how they are used in what scenes and roles they can play. To that end, Arata Ohwa, President and CEO of Classico, personally interviewed medical practitioners. Functionality that Classico pursued while improving the convenience of stethoscopes and taking a process of trial and error resulted in the beautility -- or functional beauty -- of U scope as well as its additional value -- respect for professionals who use the device.
