Featured at MEDICA, ECM’s EXAPad portable veterinary ultrasound unit also snagged a nomination for the MedicalExpo i-NOVO Design award.

The company website highlights the unit’s three main innovations: a touchscreen interface that displays only required functions, voice control of principal scanner operations and a remote control application for an iPad. The robust unit offers over two hours of working time and interfaces are intuitively simple to use. Its patient data, report, annotation, and measurement capabilities were designed with veterinarians in mind and for field use.

The lightweight unit features a high-resolution 15-inch screen and four USB ports. It comes in a shock-proof case, is easy to clean and has an interchangeable battery. Weighing under six kilos, it measures 39 x 30 x 7 cm. The mini version has a 12-inch screen, is lighter, has fewer ports, but offers three hours of operation on a single charge.
