SonoSite’s first mission was to create an ultrasound machine that could be carried into battle and used to make time-critical medical decisions under the most grueling conditions imaginable. The concept was simple: get treatment to a trauma victim within the first 60 minutes of being injured by giving a frontline clinician an ultrasound machine that could easily be brought to the patient’s side. It was a concept that had been put into practice for years but with equipment that was anything but easy-to-move. Enter the SonoSite 180. Designed in partnership with point-of-care clinicians, weighing less than 10 lbs and built for the battlefield, the 180 was born for the bedside.
For the first time, point-of-care clinicians had a tool built for them that made bringing ultrasound to any patient, anywhere, at any time a possibility. From the beginning SonoSite has been dedicated to empowering clinicians to continue innovating the practice of medicine for the sake of providing better patient care. With more than 100,000 SonoSite machines installed worldwide, we continue to partner with clinicians to bring the benefits of ultrasound to the point-of-care.
Since 2005, SonoSite has supported humanitarian efforts in developing countries by providing high-quality SonoSite equipment through loans or special pricing to qualified nonprofit organizations through its SoundCaring and other Global Health programs.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 60% of the world’s population has no access to diagnostic medical imaging. SonoSite is working to lower that statistic.
Through our dynamic Global Health programs, we are bringing advanced ultrasound technology to patients and institutions that would otherwise have no access to this imaging modality due to social conditions, remote locations, or lack of funds. From steaming jungles to desolate mountaintops, our rugged, battery-operable systems can be used in virtually any setting—and they are.
