Point-of-Care USB Ultrasound
Pleasanton, CA, April 14, 2017 – Interson announced today they have received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market their SiMPLi™ Series linear and convex array probes for human applications. Both linear and convex array probes have been available for veterinary applications since January 2017. Interson has been the market leader in open-architecture USB ultrasound imaging probes since 2007.
Interson’s new linear and convex array probes enable medical professionals to use Windows OS tablets, laptops, and desktops to display real-time ultrasound images at resolution and detail that were, until now, only available on high-end ultrasound systems. The new SiMPLi Series probes are lightweight, handheld and can easily be carried to and from any point-of-care location. The new SiMPLi Series probes provide such great image quality that every medical professional should carry one and simply connect the USB probe cable to a Windows computer to view real-time, high-resolution ultrasound images.
“These new array probes continue on our company vision to bring affordable, high-quality ultrasound imaging to every medical professional. SiMPLi Series is the most portable, real-time ultrasound solution available. We are proud to keep pushing the market forward on performance and practicality while also driving the cost lower.” Roman Solek, President & CEO
Interson’s next-generation USB probes provide the image quality necessary for a wide variety of point-of-care applications. Primary Care, Long Term Care, Rehab, Telemedicine, and Women’s Health are typical applications where the new SiMPLi Series are widely used. Interson’s open architecture solutions provide the capabilities and features that previously could only be addressed by larger more expensive, proprietary closed-architecture solutions. SiMPLi Series is the smallest and most portable ultrasound imaging solution which can be easily brought to the bedside, making point-of-care imaging more timely and convenient.
