Sonosite Releases Lightweight Ultrasound

NANOMAXX

September 15, 2009 - SonoSite Inc. introduced the NANOMAXX Ultrasound system at the annual scientific meeting of the Association for Vascular Access (AVA) being held in Las Vegas September 14th - 18th, 2009.

SonoSite will be showing at the 6-lb. NanoMaxx ultrasound tool, the latest addition to its suite of specialized products for point-of-care visualization in medicine. Combining one-button optimization technology with a fluid resistant touch screen user interface, the NanoMaxx system is highly sophisticated, easy to use and easy to disinfect. While other touch screens require a stylet to activate system controls, the sensitivity of the NanoMaxx touch screen allows the user to operate the system with the touch of a finger while wearing sterile gloves. The image quality and color flow mapping on the NanoMaxx provide increased utility versus alternatives by giving users the ability to identify nerve bundles and distinguish veins from arteries, delivering the visualization needed for safe and effective line placements.

The NanoMaxx system and its transducers exceed military specifications for ruggedness and durability and are built to withstand a 3-foot drop onto a hard surface. The NanoMaxx system is backed by SonoSite’s industry-leading, standard 5-year warranty, eliminating the expense for an annual service contract.
