The Ultrasound XS ultrasound unit is a highly engineered, mobile workstation that must perfectly meet the ergonomic requirements of the user. The control panel and the monitor can be individually adjusted in height and angle. The probes (sensors) are optimally placed within easy reach. The cables are routed inside the unit to avoid the typical “cable tangle”. The design also had to consider the role of the patient. He sees the ultrasound machine before and during the examination. Therefore, the design should help the unit to create a positive aura. It should be reliable and confidence-inspiring, but at the same time friendly so as not to make patients feel uncomfortable.
