New SonoSite ultrasound tool receives international design award

SonoSite : 07 May, 2008  (Company News)
SonoSite’s new S-Nerve ultrasound tool has received a prestigious International Forum (iF) design award in the Health+Care category.
An international jury evaluated 2,771 entries based on design, functionality, aesthetics, innovation, workmanship and choice of materials.

The S-Nerve tool, part of SonoSite’s recently introduced S Series product line, has been custom-designed with breakthrough image quality, speed and simplicity to support the visualisation needs of regional anaesthetists. It was designed with input from leading practitioners who expressed a substantive need for a compact, high-performance tool, to function exclusively for guidance of regional nerve blocks and central line placement.

The S-Nerve device, like other products in SonoSite’s S Series line, is a radically new concept in Ultrasound and offers the option of a ‘zero’ footprint by being mounted on a wall, the ceiling or on a pole by the patient’s bedside. Dr Ian Harper, consultant in anaesthesia at Wansbeck Hospital in Northumberland, UK, commented: “The vertical orientation and mounting of the machine is a logistical improvement. Whoever designed this product got it exactly right.”

The S-Nerve Ultrasound tool will be on display with other award-winning products at the International Congress Centre in Hannover, Germany, until August 31, 2008.
