Q: There is another hand held ultrasound on the market for a lot less money. How does the 718 compare to that unit?
A: Don’t be fooled by other portable ultrasounds. They are very low powered and only operate in a pulsed mode. This makes them not practical for clinical use. The 718 is full powered ultrasound units in the palm of your hand. It is the only unit on the market with these power capabilities.
Q: Is the 718 waterproof?
A: Both units are waterproof so you can perform underwater treatments with ease.
Q: Does the 718 come with everything I will need to get started?
A: Both units come complete with the unit, power supply, battery, battery charger, user manual and sample size of ultrasound gel.
Q: Why would I purchase a 718 over a 740 clinical ultrasound?
A: If you need to truly be portable with your ultrasound the 718 is a perfect unit for you. Now you can treat your patients on the sidelines, in the dugout, on the airplane or wherever you may need to be. Traveling between patient rooms is now easier and eliminates the use for a treatment cart. The clinical units like our Sonicator 740 are still a bit more powerful and are considered portable, but the 718 just takes portability once step further.
