Compact ultrasound bone densitometry system

A new approach has been used in the development of the bone densitometry system, EggQus. It has been created using the design concept of an ‘eggshell’. The result is a strong, lightweight, easy to handle unit that guarantees maximum portability. EggQus is light, compact and versatile compared to conventional ultrasound bone densitometry systems. The large integrated handle facilitates inhospital rounds and house visits. The system is powered by rechargeable batteries enhancing its portability. Continuous and convenient use can be sustained using the AC adapter accessory. The motor-controlled transducer unit moves automatically, minimizing manipulation by the operator. The short measurement time of approximately three seconds is convenient for elderly examinees and for screening that requires rapid handling.
