Clarius Wireless, Handheld Ultrasounds Cleared in Europe

Clarius, a company based in British Columbia, Canada, received European CE Mark approval for its wireless C3 and L7 ultrasound scanners. These devices are highly portable, battery powered, and use an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet for displaying the scans. They’re even water resistant, so can be used in a wide variety of in-clinic and field applications. We were so impressed here at Medgadget that these scanners made it to our Best Medical Technologies of 2016 list.

The Clarius C3 multipurpose ultrasound is designed to image the abdomen and lungs; it also incorporates a virtual phased array for quick scans of the heart. The Clarius L7 is ideal for guiding procedures and imaging superficial structures.

“Clarius has amazing image quality for such a small device,” in a statement said Dr. Gert-Jan Mauritz, an emergency medicine resident and ultrasound instructor based in the Netherlands.  “It’s better than a traditional ultrasound machine because I carry it everywhere in my pocket and it’s so easy to use the Clarius App on my phone.”
