Our ultrasound technology supporting reliability

Position for measurement is adjustable according to foot size

By attaching/detaching the foot board adapters with simple operation, patients can choose from 3 different heel positions to transmit the ultrasound waves through correct position of the heel bone.

Transducer unit gently holds the heel from left and right

image

Transducer unit closes with appropriate pressure to make close contact with the heel, enabling the waveform to become stable and transmit without loss.

Examinee's heel width is accurately measured

Laser displacement meter is used for the measurement of heel width to provide high accuracy in SOS (Speed of Sound) measurement.

Temperature is monitored during measurement

Any variation of ultrasonic characteristics caused by the temperature change is being monitored and adjusted.

Changes in speed of sound and waveforms are measured

Two types of indices, SOS & TI (Transmission Index), are measured for evaluation of the bone condition. The synthetic parameter reflecting these two is Osteo Sono-assessment Index (OSI).
