Lumify, the Philips app-based ultrasound solution, helps healthcare professionals make fast, informed decisions. With Lumify’s full suite of point-of-care transducers, physicians in multiple care situations can take advantage of every crucial moment without the time and mobility restrictions of locating a cart-based ultrasound.
“At Philips, we understand the power technology can have for healthcare practitioners and patients, and we design and innovate meaningful solutions to cater to them at the point-of-care”, said Diederik Zeven, General Manager, Health Systems, Philips ASEAN Pacific. “Philips’ vision for app-based ultrasound is focused on putting high-quality devices in the hands of more professionals to serve more patients in more locations. Lumify is further extending the reach of ultrasound by creating better connections between clinicians and their patients, while continuing to deliver exceptional image quality.”
Lumify is the first Philips ultrasound device for pre-hospital use and supports clinical applications including cardiac, abdominal including lung, OB/GYN, superficial, vascular, soft tissue, MSK, gallbladder and FAST exam pre-sets.
To use Lumify, users download The Lumify App from the Google Play store, connect their Philips transducer to their compatible smart device and launch the app to begin scanning. The Lumify App and all three transducers (L12-4, C5-2, and S4-1) are backed by a 5-year warranty, each having gone through rigorous environmental and durability testing for reliability for any clinical setting. The S4-1 transducer and cable weighs 152 grams and is smaller than a smartphone, adding to its versatility and mobility. Beyond integrating with everyday technology, Lumify also uses cloud-enabled technology to connect with PACS, shared networks and system directories.
"Having used a solution like the Philips Lumify device, there are a few aspects that stand out,” said Associate Professor Tan Teng Hong, Head and Senior Consultant, Cardiology Service, Department of Paediatric Subspecialties, KK Women's and Children's Hospital. “This includes its portability, image quality and usability. Pocket-sized devices such as this can be easily used in a variety of environments, providing immediate feedback and also allows for users to receive high quality ultrasound imaging on a compatible smart device without the need for a larger echo machine.”
Lumify is a solution that will grow with its users, with plans for regular software updates and additional transducers, services and apps being released at regular intervals. For more information on Lumify and the full suite of Philips advanced ultrasound solutions, visit www.philips.com.sg/lumify.
