What You Should Know:
– EchoNous, a company delivering AI-enabled handheld ultrasound capable of producing diagnostic-quality images, forms an alliance with Samsung that enables its Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Kosmos platform run on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro tablets (models 12.0 and higher).
– Made possible through the EchoNous/Samsung alliance, this new compatibility will lower the overall price point of the Kosmos platform, which already costs tens of thousands of dollars less than the cart-based models that Kosmos has been benchmarked against. This compatibility is only possible because of the Active Pro tablet’s exceptional speed, power, and battery life.
Until now, the Kosmos platform has only been operable with Kosmos Bridge, EchoNous’s custom-designed display. Kosmos Bridge was designed specifically for medical use and features minimal surface area and system buttons that are protected in sealed silicone rubber. While the product will remain on the market, compatibility with Galaxy Tab Active Pro models creates more options for medical practitioners and hospital procurement staff.
Even for the largest medical providers in the world, every dollar saved is one that can be spent saving another life, and this alliance with Samsung makes it possible for our platform to run on a more economical, off-the-shelf tablet, explained Kevin Goodwin, CEO of EchoNous. Doctors can now use a tablet that they may already be familiar with and it will still run our platform flawlessly because of its inherent power.
