SonicEye® The first wearable ultrasound probe: intuitive, light and flexible.
Planned multiple ultrasound system compatibility.
The SonicEye® is the world’s first finger-mounted ultrasound probe. As a wearable ultrasound probe, the SonicEye® leverages innate human hand-eye coordination providing both fine-motor positional control and exquisite spatial awareness of fingertip location with tactile feedback.
Sonivate’s SonicEye® provides unique contributions to ultrasound technology:
- Image Guided Procedures: Concurrent imaging/palpation/symptom-elicitation allows real-time clinical correlation and is ideally suited for ultrasound-guided procedures. SonicEye® allows for more control and better placement
- Intuitive Design: SonicEye® leverages innate eye-hand coordination. It is easy to use and the highly intuitive design results in rapid learning curve. SonicEye® can reduce repetitive stress injuries associated with conventional probe “pinch grip.”
- Fits Clinical Workflow: SonicEye®’s modular design supports clinical workflow. SonicEye® can be sheathed or worn under a sterile glove for sterile procedures.
- Flexibility: SonicEye® is currently compatible with the Fukuda Denshi UF-760AG ultrasound system. Additional ultrasound manufacturers’ systems to be supported soon.
By placing imaging technology directly into the hands and onto the fingers of medical professionals, the SonicEye® brings new ultrasound applications to a host of clinical settings including anesthesiology, vascular access, trauma, and military field-use settings.
*SonicEye® is currently available in the US only.

“The concept is an obvious winner.
This is a no-brainer.”
Kevin S. Hughes, M.D., FACS Surgical Director, Breast Screening, Co-Director, Avon Comprehensive Breast Evaluation Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA
“This is impressive! We need to fly this on (the international space) station. Mission specialists will prefer this probe. It has clear ergonomic advantages over standard probes. ”
James Thomas, MD, FACC, Lead Scientist for Ultrasound to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Cardiologist, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH
“With the emphasis on speed and accuracy in the performance of peripheral nerve blocks (especially continuous nerve blocks with catheter placement) the finger probe has unlimited upside and potential.”
Daryl I. Smith, M.D., Chairman and Medical Director, Department of Anesthesiology, Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital, Portland, Oregon
“I had an opportunity to use the demo probe and I can hardly wait for it to become available. It will be an amazing tool for breast ultrasound procedures as well as vascular access. What an awesome clinical advantage it offers.”
Nathalie Johnson, M.D., Medical Director of Legacy Cancer Services and the Good Samaritan Breast Center, Surgical Associates P.C., Portland, Oregon
“Ultrasound guidance with this probe will change the way we do our procedures. My ability to stabilize and do fine manipulations is really improved.”
Col. Craig D. Shriver, MD, Director, Clinical Breast Care Project, Program Director and Chief, General Surgery, WRAMC
“Fantastic concept, very clever. I can see how this expands the utility of ultrasound to an entirely new group of users. The telemedicine applications are obvious.”
Aneesh Chopra, U.S. Chief Technology Officer, Assistant to the President and Associate Director for Technology, White House Office of Science & Technology Policy
“This needed to be done. I tried years ago but wasn’t able to get to a commercially viable device. You’ve done it! I’ll help in any way I can to make it a success.”
James B. Seward, M.D., FACC, FASE Emeritus – Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN
“Stop making it better. We can use it as is yesterday, not just in theater but right here in our burn and trauma units. When can I have it?”
Col. (R) John B. Holcomb, MD, FACS, Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Surgery, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, former Commander of the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research, BAMC
