Signostics has developed a cost-effective device that for the first time makes it affordable for individual health professionals to use ultrasound in their clinical practice. Just as handheld devices transformed the business world, it is anticipated the Signos will change the way healthcare professionals practice medicine.

Retailing at a fraction of the cost of larger machines, the Signos is the world's smallest and lightest ultrasound device. With a weight of approximately half a pound, its portability and low price point appeals to a large range of medical markets, including emergency medicine, primary care, remote healthcare, critical care, pediatrics, musculo-skeletal, palliative care and sports medicine. This breakthrough product is the first ultrasound platform technology that clinicians can place in their pocket or wear around their neck like a stethoscope.

The device delivers high-resolution images anywhere, at any time for general medical applications, including: abdominal assessments such as bladder, abdominal aortic aneurysm screening, and trauma assessment; musculoskeletal; and basic obstetrics, such as pregnancy viability and fetal positioning.

According to McGregorTan Research in their 2005 Market Assessment, the global personal ultrasound market is estimated to be worth around $3 billion, with the U.S. market worth about $1 billion.

"Securing FDA clearance is a huge milestone for our company," Dr. Bartlett said. "The global financial crisis over the last six months has
