Mobisante Releases Smartphone Equipped Ultrasound Device; MobiUS

Mobisante, a leading name in the mobile-health industry, announced that its smartphone ultrasound device has finally hit the market.

Earlier this year, the company announced that the U.S Food and Drug Administration had issued the much awaited clearance for the handheld smartphone equipped ultrasound device, the MobiUS.

The company had planned to launch the MobiUS earlier, but is releasing it now, said co-founder and chief technology officer of Mobisante, David Zar in a statement (opens in new tab) to MobiHealthNews.

The MobiUS system, aimed at assisting in diagnosing fetal, abdominal, pelvic, cardiac, as well as peripheral vessel related health problems, works with the Windows Mobile 6.5 powered Toshiba TG101 smartphone, and requires a USB 2.0 interface to carry out the probe.

“These are tablets health care professionals have had at the bedside for years,” said Zar, as reported by MobiHealthNews.

“[MobiUS] would be an added benefit for the platform they already have in place. For many, this is not a replacement system. We can also offer the full imaging solution, though, and that might appeal to smaller clinics. Our work has just begun, really,” he added.
