Esaote Ergonomics, Workflow and Design in Diagnostic Ultrasound

Ergonomics, Workflow and Design

Esaote has started some years ago a review of its approach to the topics of Ergonomics, Workflow and Design in Diagnostic Ultrasound. This new approach, started in Europe, has been recently consolidated in the US with the presence of Esaote systems in some important Clinical Institutions where we have been able to get precious feedbacks and ideas from many experienced Sonographers and Physicians.

Ergonomics

Clinical References - Scientific Literature

Some Esaote studies about ergonomics, workflow, and design of MyLab™ Ultrasound systems and probes were also published in scientific journals and presented at international conferences:
