Outline

We did hundreds of interviews all over the world. One doctor is doing a needle guidance, he has a probe in one hand, and a needle in another. Another doctor is trying to maintain a sterile environment, she needs to ask help from a colleague to adjust the system. Our customers want their work to be simpler, faster, and safer in such difficult situation. With buttons built into the probe handle, customer can now control the system with the same hand you use for scanning. What used to take two people can now be done with one. Our customers got a third hand now by using this button probe.
