The Redmond, Washington-based EchoNous develops the Kosmos portable, artificial intelligence-guided point-of-care ultrasound tool and has partnered with Samsung to run its ultrasound offering on Samsung Galaxy tablets.
As a result of the new partnership, Kosmos will now be compatible with Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Pro tablets. According to a news release, the Kosmos platform will be cheaper as a result.
The EchoNous system already costs 'tens of thousands of dollars less' than the cart-based competitors. Samsung's Active Pro tablet's speed, power, and battery life aid compatibility, the company said.
“We believe that every dollar saved from this alliance can be used to save another life, even for the world's largest medical providers,” said EchoNous CEO Kevin Goodwin.
The tablet can now be used by doctors whom they already have familiarity with. At the same time, due to the inherent power that the tablet possesses, our platform will still run smoothly on it.
The Kosmos display was previously only available through EchoNous' Kosmos Bridge display, which was designed specifically for medical applications and features silicone rubber-sealed buttons, as well as minimal surface area.
While Kosmos Bridge will continue to be sold, EchoNous said it now offers more options for medical practitioners and hospital procurement staff because it is compatible with Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Pro models.
With continuous-wave Doppler capability, the Kosmos portable imaging tool represents the only diagnostic-grade tool available on the market today.
The AI-driven system enables automated assessment of systolic heart function at the bedside, providing diagnostic-quality scans and adhering to HIPAA compliance requirements.
As a company, we aim to democratize ultrasound use in bedside medicine. We can make these tools much more accessible by utilizing existing technology for that purpose,' Goodwin said.
“Samsung customers - even if they're not medical professionals or don't need an ultrasound - can feel good knowing their devices are helping diagnose patients and saving lives around the world.
