Mobisante’s Ultrasound Device Works With A Smartphone

By David Ponce

Notice that the headline mentions a smartphone, rather than “your” smartphone. That’s because Mobisante’s recently released, smartphone-based MobiUS SP1 ultrasound device doesn’t work with just any phone, but the now very dated (already two year-old) Windows Mobile 6.5-based Toshiba TG01 smartphone. Of course that doesn’t make this device any less awesome, since it means that accurate and inexpensive point-of-care diagnostics are now much more mobile. Whereas an injured person would traditionally have to reach a hospital in order to receive potentially life-saving scans, ultrasound scans can now be performed on the field. Images taken with the MobiUS SP1 can then be sent to another physician for a second opinion. Emergency internal surgery could be attempted en-route, preventing a possible bleed out for example.

This device is not cheap at $7,495, but then again it’s aimed at medical professionals.
