Israeli Start-up Launches First-Ever At-Home Ultrasound for Future Moms
A tele-ultrasound device developed by Israeli start-up PulseNmore will allow pregnant women to perform an ultrasound at home without the need to visit a clinic or a hospital.
Clalit Health Services already has ordered 20,000 units of the device for its members, according to Chief Operating Officer Jordan Rubinson.
“Traditionally, ultrasound technology has been associated with very big, expensive machines in hospitals operated by highly trained technicians,” he said. “In the past few years, a new generation of devices that are smaller and easier to use have been developed and offered to physicians themselves. But they still require sophisticated users, and they still cost thousands of dollars. Our solution represents the next step.”
PulseNmore’s product is a small device that attaches to smartphones. It is operated by the woman herself, either during a live telemedicine appointment or by following five-step instructions on the devoted app to produce a video of the fetus that is uploaded to the system and can be examined by a doctor.
