TIPSO AirPad Technology

Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu, along with NZ Technologies of Vancouver, Canada, and developers of TIPSO technology, have announced that they have signed a one-year renewable agreement that allows Shimadzu to market and sell the innovative TIPSO AirPad in the US healthcare market.

TIPSO is a specialised medical technology that has evolved from the technical expertise and industrial experience of its engineering team through contributions from physicians as co-inventors who practice in the field of interventional radiology.

Proprietary technology enables various modes of image navigation over the TIPSO AirPad surface (functioning as mouse and keyboard at bedside) while a real-time representation of the hand and menu is shown on the system monitor display. A simple USB dongle connects the AirPad to any workstation wirelessly without having a connection to the hospital network or any type of transfer/storage of patient data to keep within HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliance.
