Point of Care Ultrasound is ultrasound scanner operated by trained medical professions on the site of the patient. The UrxaTM 3, the point-of-care ultrasound module of the Warp 3 Medical Recorder, is designed to be compact, lightweight and easier to operate. Unlike conventional ultrasound machine, UrxaTM 3 provides various scenarios for doctors to diagnose or treat the patient anywhere, such as small offices, road side, on board vehicle, boat, and aircraft, quick exam at patient’s home, or large scale population screening, while functions for specialty, such as 3D or 4D ultrasound, are not included.
The healthcare workforce in modern time is trained to be familiar with ultrasound procedures in clinical practice. Qualified physicians, who’s no stranger to Human Anatomy and Pathology, would be able to perform ultrasound scans in their offices, diagnose/evaluate/rule out patient’s condition, or guide an invasive procedure, after a quick training. Although portable ultrasound systems were on the medical device market for over 15 years, the size and weight is yet too heavy and big for doctors to carry in their pockets, and operate where the patients need.

About "Medical Tricorder"
by which this product is inspired
The idea of a medical tricorder comes from an imaginary device on the science fiction TV show Star Trek from the 1960s which featured fictional character Dr. Leonard McCoy using it to instantly diagnose medical conditions.
The medical tricorder has a detachable, high-resolution, hand-held scanner that sends life-sign information to the tricorder itself. It can check all vital organ functions, detect the presence of dangerous organisms, and human physiology. Its data banks also contain information on non-human races known to the Federation, thereby making it possible to treat other life-forms.
