What does AFD stand for?

AFD stands for Adjustable Frequency Diaphragm technology. Stethoscope models with AFD technology feature a single sided chestpiece that allows adjustment of the frequency by altering pressure to the chestpiece.  Light pressure accentuates lower frequencies, while firm pressure accentuates higher frequencies, simulating the diaphragm and bell sides of a two sided chestpiece.
