MGU-1000A

universal design award 2008

Despite the rising incidence of breast cancer, many women avoid examinations in fear of the imagined pain. The Toshiba device’s gentle lines and clean color reduce this anxiety, while every attempt was made to also reduce any pain by a thorough study of every part of the device including the hand rest, down to the slightest detail. Incorporating a design that is friendly to examinee as well as technician, the device allows high degrees of flexibility and usability regardless of differing user physiques and circumstances. We sincerely hope that this device will allow many more women to undergo worry-free examinations.
