EchoBox is the leading solution for enabling remote review of real-time echocardiography images over the WEB. Today, EchoBox is combined with a high performance video camera- EchoCam- for viewing both the patient and real-time echo images of the heart simultaneously. Viewing the patient is important in cases where the imaging expert may want to engage in a live telemedicine video consult while viewing the echo images.
“Our customers are very satisfied with the echo image quality provided by EchoBox, and also want to observe what is happening in the room while the echo is being acquired. Some echo practitioners want a compact device that transmits both live patient video and real-time echo images. Some are concerned that currently available cart-based telemedicine systems are too big to fit in a small and already crowded exam room. Tele- EchoBox is a solution for that problem.” - Al Kyle, Founder and President, StatVideo LLC
Tele-EchoBox simultaneously streams live video and real-time echo images over standard computer networks to enable a video consult during an echo procedure. Tele-Echo Box consists of a wireless video camera, compact interface module and software viewer. The EchoBox module interfaces with most echo imaging systems, and the viewer is downloaded from the WEB to most laptops and desktops. EchoCam runs in either wired or wireless mode and enables viewing of the patient, the transducer and imaging system keyboard and controls during the echo procedure. Tele-EchoBox transmits live video and high resolution echo images including perioperative TEE, fetal, pediatric and adult studies over hospital information systems, VPN networks or the WEB. Tele-EchoBox is compact, easy to use and low cost, typically less than $5,000.
Located in Andover, MA, StatVideo LLC designs and manufactures video conferencing systems that deliver high performance at a low cost. EchoBox is currently in use at leading hospitals, including Duke, Brigham & Women’s, Beth Israel Deaconess, UCLA, UC San Diego, and the Medical University of South Carolina.
