ERKA: The Original Stethoscope

This German-engineered brand has been crafting advanced diagnostics since 1889.

When you’re shopping for a stethoscope there are certain names you look for: Littmann, of course, Welch Allyn, Prestige Medical, etc. Here in the states, these brands are passed-down to new generations of medical professionals and students as the standard for quality. What you may not know is there’s another name that’s been synonymous with superior diagnostic technology for over 100 years: ERKA.

Founded in Berlin in 1889, ERKA has been expertly crafting diagnostics thanks to their background in German engineering. As of 2017, allheart is excited to offer these amazing stethoscopes to the US market.
