That’s what Lumify is – the most durable Philips ultrasound system in the palm of your hand.
With Lumify, the processing power that’s traditionally in the ultrasound cart is now in the transducer, using the Lumify app to view, interact with, and export each exam. We’ve automated many functions, and integrated presets, optimization and focusing to make it easy to obtain images with excellent tissue information and well-defined vasculature and blood flow. Lumify transducers maintain a normal temperature – they aren’t hot like you might expect with so much power in such a small size. As well, they maintain the same ergonomic shape and weight as transducers on our cart-based systems.
As with any highly portable ultrasound system, the transducer cables can take a beating. Early in our development of Lumify, it became obvious from user feedback that we had to make sure that cable damage would never put your ultrasound system out of commission. And we reached that goal. Rather than creating a tougher, heavier cable (which may still fail at some point), we took the problem off the table completely by making the cable quick and easy to replace. Taking that a step further – the same cable is used on all three Lumify transducers, making it even easier and more cost-efficient to be prepared.
