Press Release Jun 28, 2017

Pleasanton, CA, June 13, 2017 – Interson announced today they have received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market their SiMPLi Series ultrasound array probes for medical applications. Interson has been the market leader in open-architecture USB ultrasound imaging products since 2007.

Interson’s new linear and convex array probes enable medical professionals to use Windows tablets and laptops to display real-time ultrasound images at resolution and detail that were, until now, only available on high-end ultrasound systems. The new SiMPLi Series probes are lightweight, handheld and can easily be carried to any patient location. The SiMPLi Series probes provide such ease of use that now every medical professional can benefit. Simply connect the USB probe cable to a Windows computer to view real-time, high-resolution ultrasound images.

“These new array probes continue on our company vision to bring affordable, high-quality ultrasound imaging to every medical professional. SiMPLi Series is truly a portable, bedside ultrasound solution. We are proud to keep pushing the market forward on performance and practicality while also driving the cost of healthcare lower,” says Roman Solek, President & CEO.

With a history of innovations recognized by the International Academy of Science, the new SiMPLi Series aims to follow by extending ultrasound diagnostic healthcare to the fingertips of all medical professionals.
