SonoSim Places Virtual Ultrasound Devices, Patients and Teachers Onto Lab Coat Pockets

SonoSim converts personal computers into ultrasound training systems

April 22, 2013 — SonoSim Inc. has introduced the SonoSim Personal Solution, which allows users to convert their own computers into personal ultrasound training systems. Handheld ultrasound technology is a proven way of improving medical care and reducing healthcare costs. A longstanding and seemingly insurmountable barrier to wide-scale adoption of these lifesaving devices has been the high opportunity cost of training care providers. The SonoSim Personal Solution overcomes this barrier by providing integrated hands-on ultrasound training, online courses and performance assessment anytime-anywhere. Trainees can access patients on-demand and virtually scan real-patient cases comprising a myriad of pathologies.

The SonoSim Ultrasound Training Solution was proven to be as effective as live-instructor training for teaching hands-on ultrasound scanning in a previous UCLA study in 2012. The SonoSim Personal Solution fits in a lab coat pocket and can be purchased from the SonoSim online store starting at $2,995.  This represents a 20 to 30-fold cost savings relative to alternative commercially available ultrasound simulators.

"The SonoSim Ultrasound Training solution is one of the more comprehensive and easy-to-use ultrasound training solutions available. In my over 25 years of experience with ultrasound and my exposure to multiple, different training courses, programs, and teachers, the SonoSim Personal Solution, is one of the better ones I have personally been exposed to," stated Cathy Ruff, RVT GE Healthcare.
