Suman Mulumudi is gaining national attention for creating a device that could help save lives. It's called Steth IO, and it turns a smartphone into a stethoscope and home heart monitor. It can also save data and send it directly to the physician's office for further review. The app is incredible, but what makes this story so unique is that Suman is 15 years old and just wrapped up his freshman year of high school. He recently showcased Steh IO on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Today, Suman joined Margaret to talk more about it, and demonstrate it for our audience and viewers. He also talked about another invention,called LesionSizer, which will aid in angioplasty procedures.
Patents are pending for both products, but people can pre-order Steth IO right now. A price hasn't been set, but Suman says it will be affordable for the home user.
