BOSTON, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- American College of Emergency Physicians 2009 Scientific Assembly -- Signostics Inc., a U.S. and Australian-based medical device company developing innovative portable and affordable handheld medical devices, today announced the launch of its new palm-sized, affordable ultrasound product for point-of-care use by medical practitioners.

The Signostics palm-sized ultrasound product has quality image resolution with a touch-screen display, a start time of less than one second from sleep mode and stores up to 10,000 images. Weighing approximately a half pound with a sleek, compact design that fits into the palm of the hand, the product is equivalent to the size of a smart phone. This allows physicians to place the device in their pocket or wear around their neck like a stethoscope until the next use, increasing the convenience of using ultrasound for diagnosis at the point of care.

"Demand for affordable healthcare is a global issue and our product provides physicians with an easy to use, affordable way to improve efficiency and faster triage in the emergency room and other clinical settings. The Signostics palm-sized ultrasound product provides physicians with a quick way to visually assess a patient's internal anatomy that is limited with a stethoscope. Signostics is democratizing ultrasound by making it accessible to a much broader market," said Neil Bartlett, MD, CEO of Signostics Inc.

With additional benefits such as volume measurements, customized patient data, voice note recording and multiple transducer frequencies, the Signostics palm-sized ultrasound product helps physicians deliver patient care quickly and affordably. The Signostics palm-sized ultrasound product is intended for use in a wide range of 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.

The Signostics palm-sized ultrasound product is available in the U.S. and Australia and will be demonstrated at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) 2009 Scientific Assembly from October 5-7, 2009 at the Boston Convention Center in Boston, MA.

Signostics was established in Adelaide, Australia in 2005 and expanded into the U.S. in 2008, dedicated to developing fast and affordable point-of-care medical devices. The company launched its first product into the veterinarian market in January 2009 and gained regulatory approvals to enter the human medical device market for the United States, Europe, and Australia in May 2009. Signostics has 2 offices in Palo Alto, California and Adelaide, South Australia. For more information, visit www.signosticsmedical.com.
