New Cardiovascular US Provides Mobility, Full Size LCD Monitor

March 31, 2008 – At ACC 2008, GE Healthcare launched its new mobile Vivid S5 cardiovascular ultrasound system, created for multiple care areas, featuring a full sized 17-inch LCD monitor, four active transducer connectors and room for on-board peripherals retained in a miniaturized console weighing less than 160 pounds.

Inspired by the Vivid I, Vivid 7 and Vivid 4, this new concept encompasses stress echo capabilities and raw data DICOM expand the reach of patient examinations. The system also features backward data compatibility with the rest of GE Healthcare’s Vivid family, including Vivid 3 and Vivid 4, as well as enhanced connectivity and productivity tools and a new ergonomic design.

The “Flex-Fit” mechanism provides constant pivoting height adjustment of the control panel, reportedly while keeping optimal distance from the user and leaving legroom for standing or sitting positions. Its horizontal keyboard swivel works to ensure optimal placement and comfort in operation. A “Flex key,” next to the trackball, can be assigned to assume the function of other, more distant keys for minimal effort, increased speed, and ease of use, according to the company. The high contrast wide-angle display monitor includes an auto sensor, automatically adjusting brightness, contrast and gamma levels for environment light, said to ensure minimal eyestrain.
