NEW VEIN-FINDING PRODUCT UNVEILED AT AAMI 2018 JUNE 1-4

EchoNous, a developer of intelligent medical tools and the parent company of SigCnostics, is applying the emerging field of artificial intelligence (AI) with the extreme miniaturization of ultrasound to solve common everyday problems in healthcare.

During the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) 2018 Conference & Expo, June 1-4 in Long Beach, EchoNous-Signostics will be providing biomedical engineers and managers (biomeds) hands-on demonstrations of the EchoNous Vein1 – a new, best-in-class tool designed to improve first-time peripheral IV (PIV) placement – and Uscan – the industry’s first AI-driven bladder tool.

“Putting cutting-edge bladder scanning and vein finding together, we believe our new nursing platform will enable biomedical departments to reduce actual hard costs given the estimated thirty plus medical devices per bed in the U.S. health system,” said Kevin Goodwin, CEO of EchoNous.

“In collaboration with, and careful listening to numerous biomed managers, we are building devices that are highly flexible and streamline today’s health system biomedical departments, while being ruggedly designed and focused on reducing total system costs.”

The soon-to-be released EchoNous Vein is designed specifically for nurses inserting peripheral IV catheters by providing an immediate and clear image of veins using just two-button controls. The easy-to-use device also includes optimized settings for use with adults and pediatrics. The device comes with EchoNous’ standard five-year, “no fine print” product warranty and customer service, providing the industry’s lowest cost of ownership.

WATCH MORE: More information on EchoNous’ approach to product maintenance and customer service is available in the short video The Medical Device Service & Repair Run Around. Biomeds attending the AAMI 2018 are invited to learn more about the EchoNous Vein by visiting Booth #168 during the conference. VTN
