Ayu Devices is also being virtually incubated at the Society for Mumbai Incubation – Lab to Entrepreneurship (SMILE), the social entrepreneurship incubation arm of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM).

Ayu Devices broke into the marketplace with their unique ‘AyuSynk’, a Digital Stethoscope as one of its first offerings which could be just what the doctor ordered in these troubled times of the ongoing pandemic. People have spoken about the spread of the virus in waves, which has practically brought most businesses to a grinding halt, whereas Ayu Devices has decided to ride this very wave with their innovative Digital Stethoscope offering. With over 4500 units already deployed across the country in quick time, AyuSynk is flying off the shelf as it is quickly being embraced by medical practitioners, including Doctors, Nurses, and other hospital support staff.

Acknowledging the practicality and the innovation of the digital stethoscope, India’s leading Pulmonologist, Dr. Lancelot Pinto said,” AyuSynk by Ayu Devices could be the next big innovation in the healthcare space. A Technology marvel, apart from being a digital stethoscope, it can also amplify sounds and translate them into electronic signals which can be further amplified.”

 The electronic signals from the stethoscope can also be displayed as a phonocardiogram on any smartphone or laptop and have the advantage of contactless reading and data sharing with other medical practitioners. Ayu Devices has already reached India’s leading Hospitals like Sir JJ Hospital Mumbai, Nair Hospital Mumbai, KGMC Lucknow, GMC Amritsar, NLJP New Delhi, KEM Hospital Mumbai, Govt. Doon Medical College, spread across the West and the Northern region like Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab & U.P.

Talking about the healthcare scenario in India, Mr. Adarsha K., CEO & Co-Founder of Ayu Devices Pvt. Ltd. said, “India currently requires around 88,000 cardiologists as against the current number of around 4000, adding a lot of pressure on tertiary centres. We have made a beginning with the deployment of over 4500 devices, and it is giving the local healthcare facilities the advantage of screening over 3X patients, with the added advantage of accuracy and safety for the Doctors and other Healthcare warriors. Apart from the Indian marketplace that has readily accepted our product, we shall soon be making breakthroughs in overseas markets like the UK and Europe.
