Accurate and inexpensive diagnostics at the point-of-care is critical to reducing healthcare costs while also improving outcomes. Ultrasound imaging is safe, effective and can save lives, however more than 70% of the world’s population does not have access to ultrasound because it is expensive and not portable enough.

Mobisante has built the world’s first smartphone-based ultrasound imaging system, MobiUS™ SP1. This award winning system, cleared by the Food & Drug Administration, brings ultrasound imaging within reach of health care professionals everywhere, helping healthcare professionals practice better medicine and reduce costs.

MobiUS fuses the power and wireless connectivity of a smartphone with the Internet into a game-changing diagnostic solution that is personal and accessible. Our patent pending intellectual property makes the system easy to use and to share information with remote providers.

FEATURES

Fits in your pocket and can be taken to the patient, wherever they are.

Accessible.

Easy to operate, intuitive user interface.

Connected.

Images can be easily and securely shared for archival, second opinion, or remote diagnosis using a cellular network, Wi-Fi, or direct connectivity to a personal computer, making it easy to keep a record of all images for reimbursements as well as benchmarking.

Affordable.

Clinics and medical professionals in resource-limited settings can afford them.

Useable Everywhere.

Smartphones can be charged almost anywhere, ensuring that MobiUS devices can operate independent of the electrical grid, making them an ideal choice for disaster relief organizations and mobile medical professionals.

BENEFITS

  • Medical Directors and CEOs of health care organizations, large and small, can improve outcomes, increase efficiency and reduce costs by equipping their providers with MobiUS devices.
  • ER Doctors can carry MobiUS on their person and quickly detect internal bleeding by conducting the FAST exam without waiting for a cart-based system and a specialist to get there.
  • A qualified RN or NP can use ultrasound to guide IV or central lines, reducing the risk of infection or accidentally piercing an artery.
  • A rural OB/GYN can confirm pregnancy and detect common complications without sending patients to remote centers.
  • A GP can look for gall bladder, kidney stones and aneurysms while they are conducting regular physical exams of their patients.
  • Qualified Emergency Responders can use such devices to do simple diagnosis at the site of an accident, as well as send diagnostic data about the patient to the hospital to help them prepare in advance.
  • While this enhanced access to ultrasound imaging may create a bigger demand for the expertise of Radiologists back at the main healthcare center, in the long term it will reduce costs by enabling earlier and faster diagnosis.
