Lumify turns a compatible smartphone into an ultrasound interface that provides high-quality imaging. It does this by bringing together mobile applications, advanced ultrasound transducer technology, integrated IT, training, education and support services. This combination helps healthcare providers improve care and reduce costs.
Specifically designed for emergency departments and urgent care centres, the mobile and integrated nature of the Lumify means that ultrasounds can be delivered even in the most remote or rural of settings. Lumify operates from a compatible smart device connected to a Philips ultrasound transducer. Users can also have access to an online portal where they can manage their device and access Philips’ support, training and IT services.
The Lumify transducers are now commercially available in Egypt. The L12-4 transducer supports a variety of clinical applications, including soft tissue, musculoskeletal, lung and vascular scanning. The C5-2 offers abdominal with lung and gallbladder pre-sets and Ob/Gyn capabilities. Whereas Lumify’s newest transducer, the S4-1, has presets for cardiac and FAST exams. All the applications and services are available through Philips’ new app-based portal.
“Lumify’s unique combination of connectivity, simplicity, portability and flexibility enables clinicians to perform ultrasound examinations across a variety of clinical settings, from cardiology suites down to under resourced semi-urban and rural areas. Finally, clinicians as well as family doctors at small outpatient clinics can perform scans themselves, speeding up the diagnosis process and possible treatments.” says Iyad AlTaiyeb.
Cloud-enabled and tablet technology allows Lumify to offer users vast connectivity, flexibility and mobility. As a customized app-based solution, Lumify is designed to seamlessly integrate with patient profiles and a health system’s equipment using cloud-enabled technology.
The Lumify is part of Philips’ App-Based ultrasound ecosystem, an open innovation platform aimed to deliver the benefits of ultrasound early in the health continuum and expand access among more healthcare providers. Built on a flexible subscription-based delivery model, users – healthcare providers and institutions – have access to and can manage solutions based on their changing demands and needs.
