Portable ultrasound features sliding keyboard cover
Alpinion Medical Systems has expanded its ultrasound portfolio with its new portable ultrasound system, E-CUBE i7. The new system integrates high-performance hardware and software and offers a variety of transducers for high clinical versatility across an extensive range of applications including point of care applications – anesthesiology, pain management, orthopedic/MSK and emergency medicine.
The system also features advanced image optimization technologies to support both routine and specialty application needs, such as Needle VisionTM Plus that makes the needle visible without degrading the surrounding tissue image, facilitating quick needle guidance to the target anatomy. The E-CUBE i7 system is characterized by its combination of comprehensive capabilities and compact, user-optimized design.
The E-CUBE i7’s streamlined design provides a solution for users who suffer from the wrist pain that often accompanies the use of bulky, heavy systems. The unique sliding keyboard cover and ergonomically located keyboard provide better support for the user’s arms and wrists when typing. According to the study conducted by a Korea-based university hospital (Department of Orthopedics, Korea University Guro Hospital), users experienced a dramatic reduction in carpal tunnel pressure and muscle tension. In addition to these benefits, the new cover design also prevents the keyboard from being contaminated by dust, gel, fluid, and blood.
With the cart-based ultrasound system architecture, the E-CUBE i7 brings a new level of image clarity to compact ultrasound systems. The E-CUBE i7 features ALPINION’s Crystal Signature transducers, which are proven to improve penetration in difficult-to-image patients and to reduce clutter so clinicians can view fine structures in precise detail.
The system also provides advanced imaging technologies including speckle reduction, spatial compounding and harmonic imaging. Its excellent image quality offers the detail and contrast resolution required to clearly delineate complex anatomy.
The system comes with eight transducers, including linear, convex, phased array and endocavity transducers to provide scanning solutions for a wide range of clinical cases. In particular, the hockey stick-shaped IO8-17T is the ideal choice for rheumatology practices.
The IO8-17T, providing extreme high frequency images, improves joint aspiration and injection accuracy and offers excellent resolution in the extreme near field, while the shape enables the user to easily maneuver the device into tight spots without losing grip. The E-CUBE i7 encompasses advanced ultrasound technology and excellent imaging performance in one portable package, enabling the user to provide comprehensive patient care when and where needed.
The E-CUBE i7 has a small footprint that makes it easy to move from room to room, and a long lasting battery so you can use it for longer between charges. It has a 15.6 inch wide, high resolution LED monitor with IPS technology to relieve eye strain and provide a clear image from all viewing angles. The E-CUBE i7’s dramatically reduced fan noise is roughly equivalent to the level of sound in a library. With the advantage of SSD technology, the E-CUBE i7 is ready for scanning in fewer than 45 seconds from start-up.
