SONOST-3000 is a portable stand-alone quantitative ultrasound (QUS) bone densitometer with an embedded PC, colorful touch screen and a built-in thermal printer.


The Stand-alone QUS Bone Densitometer

Portable Device with Embedded PC, Touch Screen and Thermal Printer

SONOST-3000 offers a comfortable and easy-to-handle measurement through its high-sensitive touch screen without an external monitor or a keyboard. Moreover, the built-in thermal printer prints out report cards in a simple format to cut down maintenance cost. The semi-permanent waterless probe with high elasticity makes you feel comfortable on your heel bones. After the measurement, you can simply wipe out the ultrasound gel with a wet wipe. The automatic probe positioning is one of the best solutions for QUS system to minimize its positioning errors.

SOS and BUA for Measurement of BMD

The ultrasound pulse passing through the bones is significantly attenuated with diffusing signals and absorption by the spongy tissues. And QUS bone mineral density is calculated by the sound of speed (SOS) and Broadband Ultrasound Attenuation (BUA), the data obtained from a density differentiating process of sponge tissues.

Windows-based Embedded PC

A windows-based embedded PC enables the stand-alone mobile devices.

USB Port and VGA Connector for External Access

SONOST-3000 can be connected to an external printer, monitor, keyboard and a mouse by USB port and VGA connector.

Precise Result with Temperature Compensation

SONOST-3000’s algorithm for a temperature compensation function offers more precise result by taking the nearby temperature into consideration at the time of the measurement.

Optimized System for Minimizing Position Errors

SONOST-3000 minimizes the possible positioning errors by offering a calf supporter, foot positioner, foot supporter, and automatic moving probe table.

Accurate Measurement with Automatic Moving Probes

An automatic moving probe table always situates itself in the center position, so that it enhances the accuracy of a measurement.
