Clarius Mobile Health, based in Vancouver, Canada, has a new option for customers who only want to carry one multipurpose ultrasound scanner in their pocket. Clarius Clip-ons are designed to transform a scanner that is typically used to scan deep structures within the abdomen, to one that can also scan superficial anatomy and even the heart.

“Clarius Clip-ons are ideal for first responders, emergency medicine physicians and specialists who move quickly from patient to patient and scan various parts of the body,” says Dave Willis, chief strategy officer at Clarius Mobile Health.  “Users can switch from scanning the abdomen to the extremities by simply adding a clip-on to the Clarius C3 scanner and selecting the appropriate setting on the Clarius App.”

Clarius Clip-ons are not intended to replace the Clarius L7, which is a dedicated scanner for superficial structures.  They are designed to be used with Clarius C3 scanners for quick looks and vascular access procedures when time is limited.

Wireless and compatible with most iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, Clarius ultrasound scanners are currently sold in 20 countries, including Australia, Canada, the European Union, and the United States.

The Point-and-Shoot ultrasound scanners have automated settings making them accessible for novice users to learn and use.  They are powered by a rechargeable battery, which is easily exchanged when running low. Built with a magnesium case, Clarius Scanners are designed to withstand challenging environments and are water submersible for easy cleaning and disinfection.
