This site is for medical professionals only.
Since the beta version was released in September 2023, we have received many positive comments and opinions from users and have improved the functions and services. The beta version will end at the end of March 2024, and the official launch will be in April 2024. After the official launch, the service name will be “Cloud Super Examination (R)︎,” and we hope that “Cloud Super Examination (R)︎” will continue to help support cardiovascular medical care.
This project is being developed with support from the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), a national research and development agency.
Our company is working on the early detection of heart disease, which is a global social issue in the medical field, through “auscultation DX.”
The auscultation DX that we aim for is not only to digitize
auscultation, but also to solve problems in the field by utilizing it in medical settings, clinical research, medical education, and telemedicine.
Japan is the first country in the world to become a super-aging society, and it is predicted that a heart failure pandemic*1 will arrive in the near future*2. On the other hand, problems such as regional disparities in medical care and a shortage of doctors are expected to worsen in the future, due to a decline in the labor force, a decline in the quality and quantity of medical services due to depopulation, and an increase in transportation costs.
In order to overcome this situation, we have developed the “AMI-SSS01 series of phonocardiogram testing devices*3,” a product that solves the problems of accuracy, difficulty, frequency, and distance in heart disease testing by utilizing “auscultation DX.” We have developed “Cloud Ultra-diagnosis (R)︎” to start.
*1 The significant increase in the number of heart failure patients due to the increase in the elderly population is sometimes referred to as a “heart failure pandemic”, likening it to the explosive spread of infectious disease patients.

Overview of “Cloud Super Diagnosis (R)︎”
The remote medical support system “Cloud Ultradiagnosis (R)︎” presents analysis results such as waveform information by uploading heart sounds and electrocardiograms acquired by the “phonocardiogram testing device AMI-SSS01 series” to the cloud. It’s a service. (*This service is not a medical device.)
Not only high-quality heart sounds, but also heart sound visualization data and electrocardiographic data can be shared with remote doctors through “Cloud Ultradiagnosis(R)︎”. This allows even non-specialists to consult a cardiologist about auscultation findings and receive support such as whether detailed examinations are necessary. Features and plans added in the official version
“Cloud Super Examination (R)” has two new plans, “Standard Plan” and “Premium Plan,” for medical institutions to choose from. ·standard plan
