E-CUBE i7 / Ultrasound diagnostic system


Discipline: Product

E-CUBE i7 is an innovative portable ultrasound system. More than 80% of sonographers experience pain while scanning and 20% of these professionals eventually experience a career-ending injury. The E-CUBE i7 provides a solution. The unique and ergonomic design helps to decrease the sonographer's wrist stress and pain. The keyboard location and the innovative "slide type" keyboard cover allow the wrists to rest while scanning and typing. The simple and compact design enhances portability and breaks down environmental barriers of ultrasound diagnosis. Also, the middle part of the system is made of solid aluminum to assure durability in any situation.
