Pocket-sized ultrasound system receives Medical Design Excellence Award

Siemens Healthcare UK : 01 July, 2008  (Company News)
Siemens Acuson P10 ultrasound system has been awarded a Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA) in the Radiological and Electromechanical Devices category the Radiological and Electromechanical Devices category.
The MDEA is the leading awards programme for the medical technology community. The MDEA recognises the achievements of medical device manufacturers and the people who work behind the scenes to deliver healthcare innovations.

As the first pocket-sized diagnostic Ultrasound system, the Acuson P10 was recognised for bringing diagnostic imaging closer to the point of care than previously thought possible. The system is useful in areas such as cardiology, emergency medicine and obstetrics. Weighing just 700g, the system is a highly versatile device.

In the UK, St Thomas’ Hospital in London has just received delivery of three units for cardiology use and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has recently trialled the system in Tanzania to assess its benefits in a rural obstetric setting. Further evaluation trials are underway with UK road and air emergency service teams to demonstrate frontline trauma advantages.

“The Acuson P10 brings the latest technology to the patient, saving critical minutes when serious injuries and cardiac problems arise,” stated Declan Dunphy, performance products manager for Siemens Healthcare. “The flexibility of the P10 inside and outside the hospital environment is a great advantage to hospitals and patients. It is wonderful news that the design innovation has been recognised formally with this gold award.”
