Edan Highlights Acclarix AX8 Ultrasound System at American College of Rheumatology

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - November 14, 2014) - Edan Medical, the Silicon Valley ultrasound design center of global medical device manufacturer Edan Instruments, today announced it will introduce the Acclarix™ AX8 Compact Ultrasound System to the rheumatology market at the American College of Rheumatology annual meeting, held Nov. 16-18, 2014 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. 

The Acclarix AX8 system, the first in a new generation of ultrasound products from Edan, was showcased last month at ANESTHESIOLOGY™ 2014 in New Orleans, followed by an introduction to the rest of the world at the MEDICA® 2014 World Forum for Medicine in Düsseldorf, Germany earlier this week. Acclarix technology significantly expands Edan's ultrasound product portfolio that formerly consisted of entry-level systems.

"The worldwide introduction of the Acclarix AX8 system ushers in a new era of ultrasound technology and product design for Edan," said Sean Murphy, PhD, chief executive officer of Edan Medical. "The Acclarix project brought together an exceptionally talented ultrasound design team, with highly proficient manufacturing experts, to create a premier system at a price point that can penetrate global markets."

The exceptional image quality of the Acclarix AX8 is a result of the system's tremendous computing power that delivers the image quality and color Doppler sensitivity of a larger console system in a laptop configuration. A host of design features streamline daily operation and include a tilt-and-swivel monitor, extended battery life, a completely sealed control panel, needle visualization technology and application-specific exam and imaging presets. Six fully optimized transducers cover the range of point-of-care applications including rheumatology, anesthesia, musculoskeletal, interventional radiology, emergency medicine, critical care and surgery.

Demonstrations of the Acclarix AX8 system are scheduled throughout the meeting in Edan's booth, #221, Sunday-Tuesday, Nov. 16-18 during exhibit hours.

The Acclarix AX8 is pending regulatory clearance and is not yet commercially available. When country-specific clearance is achieved, the system will be available for sale on a worldwide basis. For more information about the Acclarix AX8 system, please visit www.edanmedical.com.
