New Mobile Health Ultrasound Technology
Mobisante MobiUS SP1 Ultrasound System: Ultrasound imaging is a vital diagnostic tool that can save lives, yet an estimated 70% of the world’s population, especially patients in developing countries, does not have access to the technology.
This device — a mobile ultrasound probe which plugs into a smartphone — allows for handheld ultrasound imaging, enabling the technology to reach rural areas in developing countries which may be far from clinics with a conventional ultrasound machine. For a second opinion, or remote diagnosis, the scan images can be transmitted via cell network or WiFi.
