HI VISION Avius / Ultrasound diagnostic scanner

HI VISION Avius

Discipline: Product

Ergonomics and universal design are evident in this diagnostic ultrasound device. Improvements in compactness, mobility and flexibility make the device easy to use even at smaller medical facilities. The control table can be adjusted to accommodate the technician and the patient even when space is limited and the device does not block forward vision when moved. Control buttons radiate out from a trackball, allowing operation without looking at the controls or changing hand positions. The lighting design prevents user errors caused by poor lighting or color blindness, and a calming form and color help minimize pressure on patients.
