The portable ultrasound market has seen dramatic progress over the last few years, but the new Philips Lumify device, a small handheld wand that connects to a smartphone – takes things to a whole new level. Priced with a $199 a month subscription basis, this anywhere health device, which recently received FDA clearance, promises to redefine how and where and when ultrasounds are done.
“In an increasingly connected world where the power of technology is at our fingertips, it’s no longer enough to create an ultrasound product or service. At Philips, we create solutions holistically with the patient at the center,” said Randy Hamlin, vice president and business segment leader, Ultra Mobile, for Philips. “Lumify leverages advanced digital health technology to provide critical information to the right people at the right time, transforming how we approach care delivery and connecting the various touch points along the health continuum.”
