Trisonics Inc. has donated an Acuson Sequoia ultrasound system to the BMET program at Vincennes University in Vincennes, Ind. According to the Harrisburg, Pa.-based company, it is pleased to support a program designed to advance the biomedical field.

The biomedical equipment technician (BMET) program at Vincennes University is a two-year associate of science degree that includes technical and general education classes.

Applying the hands-on curriculum, students in this program learn skills and gain knowledge in biomedical devices/industry fundamentals, electronics, and computer/networking fundamentals. The program was developed to provide the skill sets desired by hospitals, medical equipment manufacturing, professional sales and contract maintenance companies.

“I want to thank Trisonics for donating the Siemens Acuson Sequoia ultrasound to our program,” says Bill Harner, biomedical electronics coordinator at Vincennes University. “Without your help, we would not have been able to continue our hands-on training with diagnostic ultrasound.”

Harner went on to thank Trisonics for coming to VU to install and provide training on the unit. He continued to express his appreciation for a quick turnaround time of 18 days from the date of the agreement, to when the system arrived on campus.
