Littmann stethoscopeLittmann is among the most well-respected medical brands in the world. Constantly innovating since it was founded over a century ago, the company continues to break new ground in the field of stethoscope technology.

Here at Four Square Healthcare, we are pleased to be able to supply these precision instruments to our clients across the UK.

Benefits of Littmann stethoscopes

All Littmann stethoscopes benefit from the company's dozens of patented developments. These include a high acoustic sensitivity allowing for a variety of uses depending on the model, from simple physical examinations to detailed diagnostics. They also incorporate tunable diaphragms, allowing health workers to hear sounds of different frequencies without the need to move the chest piece. 

Littmann ear tips are soft-sealing, fitting comfortably into the ear and providing a superlative acoustic seal. From the precision chest pieces to the adjustable headset, every component of a Littmann stethoscope is ergonomically designed for comfort, functionality, and precision.
