This Ultrasound Table concept reconsiders patient and general physician’s needs to increase the comfort and provide direct access to new capabilities. UTS re-imagines the classic patient table as a welcoming, ergonomically sensitive and open environment, using new technology to create a better relationship between patient and doctor. The design metaphor of a hammock holds positive associations of well-being, which encourages visits to the doctor for early detection. All the equipment required for an ultrasound exam is integrated inside the patient table: probes, gel, ultrasound device, computer, screen and remote control unit.
