This platform has been designed with a focus on responding swiftly to differences in examination types (upright or seated) and patient (children) status, as well as parts of the body being examined, through technician operation. For this purpose, its controls employ technologies such as single-action variable positioning and a rotating structure. This makes it possible to secure broad, open foot spaces and working areas. Controls are positioned so the main keys, centered on a trackball, can fit in the palm of the hand, enabling operation without looking at the controls. It features button lighting to enable long-term operation in a darkened room and out of consideration for colorblind technicians. Furthermore, the design also is intended to ensure forward visibility for operators during transfer inside hospitals and to give consideration to having the device present an attractive, stylish feeling from the patient's point of view.
