Toshiba Corporation Design Center (Atsunobu Banryu, Shigeru Otoha), Japan
The Aplio 500/400/300 series of ultrasound imaging devices was developed in close collaboration with customers. Here an emphasis was placed on the requirements the device had to fulfil in order to relieve staff from physical strain. As a result, improved key layout and graphical user interface enable users to fully concentrate on diagnostics. Moreover, the adjustable monitor facilitates easy examination procedures.
