MADE in Japan: Contributing to the world with reliable quality
Even in 21 st Century, our world still sees national and regional disparity in medical care.
Developing countries are experiencing a chronic shortage of doctors and medical equipment due to unstable public order and scarcity of financial resources.
Our company, Lequio Power Technology Corporation, along with many global organizations like to overcome these obstacles in developing countries by providing for a reliable as well as affordable medical care.
We work together with local people to develop a mechanism for the provision of medical assistance to every remote place with a view to improve the level of front-line medical care while keeping a lid on costs. The more we know about the needs of the front-line providers, the more our sense of responsibility is heightened.
Our motto is to offer products made in Japan, which are truly trusted throughout the world, to all people in need.
Today, just like every day, we spread our wings around the world from Okinawa.
- Greeting by the CEO
The 21 st Century has now started to produce significant transformation of the social structure not only in Japan but throughout the world. I believe that it is now the time for a profound review of the existing sense of values, common practices and constraints.
While we must understand the constraints posed by our geographical location in Okinawa, the southernmost region of Japan, we are not defined by our location. We maximize the advantages of our location, using the world as the canvas on which to draw our own picture.
We are determined to present ourselves as an organization which contributes to the world by transmitting solutions required by the world in accordance with our sense of values as well as sense of mission.
Ultrasound imaging diagnostic device (Ultrasound scanners)
The ultrasound scanners are designed and marketed for developing countries and for educational purposes. We achieved the device with affordable price significantly below the average price of conventional ultrasound devices used in the medical field where health care services are provided under the Japan health insurance and in the medical facilities in Europe and the US.
The devices are portable with the weight of only 170 - 270g and are powered by PC via USB connection, which supports usage at most medical sites during power outside and/or in areas where you cannot get the stable power.
The unique function called SyncView makes it easier to visually understand which parts and angles you have been scanning. Both scanned ultrasound images of the subject and scene where you position the probe are recorded together by this function. This allows you to confirm scanning parts and the angle of the probe easier and more in detail than body mark function conventionally used. Since it is simple and easy to review the scanning scene just by referring recorded video, this can be utilized as E-material, and will be useful for reviews, exchanging opinions, and getting advice.
With our superior technologies for acoustic sensing, image processing and power management, this device provides you with the best resolution possible just under power supplied via USB connection.
