Medical News, Technologies: Project Team Rhythm Reloaded

Evidence-based medicine takes on a whole new facet with an experimental project created by a team of four engineering and computer science students from Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Four seniors (shown below) named their proposal for an experimental digital stethoscope Rhythm Reloaded using the Linux operating system.
