• The role of the ultrasound in point of care treatment of patients worldwide will continue to expand in the coming years.  Currently, it is even being tested for the rapid bedside diagnosis of fractures.  The Signos, which will

    be introduced in January, 2013,  is a lower-priced alternative to the Vscan, but does have a steep learning curve.  The Vscan currently costs about $8,000, and the Signos is half that, at $4,000.  Now, to the company literature:

    (SOURCE: )

    Signostics, the maker of the Signos,  is an international  company with a vision to be the global leader in providing clinicians with affordable handheld tools for use at the point-of-care.

    With manufacturing and engineering operations based in Adelaide and sales and marketing operations based in San Francisco, Signostics comprises a motivated team of experienced engineers and managers backed by solid investment partners.

    The company’s flagship product is the revolutionary Signos Personal Ultrasound device, which features unique patented technology developed by the company as a modern alternative to the stethoscope and other traditional methods of physical examination such as palpation and percussion.

    Assessing the volume of a bladder before catheterization can reduce  infections by up to 50%1.

    As the world’s smallest ultrasound device, the Signos is small enough for physicians to hang around their neck or carry in their pocket – a major advantage over conventional cart-based ultrasound systems which are much more expensive and lack portability.

    Weighing less than one pound (320 grams), the palm-sized Signos is competitively priced so that it is accessible to individual physicians and small rural hospitals, in addition to larger city hospitals that require separate ultrasound facilities for multiple wards.

    Incorporating the latest position-sensing technology to quickly and easily produce high resolution images of patients’ internal anatomy, the Signos has been designed to help clinicians improve health outcomes and reduce operating costs in consulting rooms and at the bedside.
