MedaPhor takes ScanTrainer to the cloud
Medical technology business MedaPhor has launched the latest version of its ultrasound training system ScanTrainer in what the company has called a "major development milestone".
ScanTrainer v5.0 will now have the option of running on the cloud, allowing tutors to review trainee results online, automatically upload updates and receive detailed system usage summaries.
"This is a major development milestone for the company," said chief executive Stuart Gall.
"The first systems in the UK are now running through the cloud, which offers the potential for our systems to provide regional, national and international, standardised and objective training and examination of ultrasound scanning skills.
"The ability of hospitals to share training cases, remotely assess trainees’ scanning skills and open up trainee access to our learning resources remotely via a tablet will dramatically expand the usability of our system.
"This is the first phase of our cloud-based development programme and we are now working on phase two, which will expand the system’s cloud capability in 2015."
MedaPhor is a Cardiff University spin-out business and raised £4.7m in August after publicly listing on AIM.
