ProbeFix: an Innovative MedTech Solution to improve the use of ultrasound for better Cardiac diagnosis in the EU

Project description

Innovative fixation device for ultrasound probes in heart disease diagnostics

While diagnostic ultrasound is crucial for monitoring cardiovascular diseases, the majority of healthcare professionals develop some form of work-related musculoskeletal disorder from the strain of handling the ultrasound probe during examinations. The Dutch medtech company Usono has developed an innovative fixation device for ultrasound probes, eliminating the need to manually keep the probe in place. This solution not only improves working conditions, but it also increases the reproducibility of scanned images and significantly reduces procedure time. The EU-funded ProbeFix project aims to bring this technology to a mature readiness level and explore the possibility of expanding into the European and eventually the global market.
