The TE Air is the first wireless, app-based portable ultrasound device developed by Mindray Medical, a medical device company based in China. The device is developed to satisfy higher clinical requirements, such as emergency and critical care, in multiple medical environments.

Powered by Mindray’s eWave platform and second-generation single-crystal technology, the TE Air produces crisp point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) high-quality images, while consuming minimal power, resulting in optimal performance.

The diagnostic ultrasound system is indicated for use in fluid and pleural motion/sliding detection, abdominal, paediatric, adult and paediatric cardiac, neonatal, and adult cephalic, and urology exams. It is recommended for adults, pregnant women, paediatric patients, and newborns.

TE Air wireless handheld ultrasound system design and features

The TE Air is an easy-to-use, wire-free, handheld ultrasonic diagnostic device controlled with TE Air App software, which can be installed on Android and iOS devices. It is a track III system and utilises phased array probes.

The system comes with an innovative air capsule, which serves as both a protective shell and a portable wireless charger. It allows the device to run all day and to be charged in just 35 minutes, minimising the downtime. Additionally, a magnetic socket allows mount and charge without dragging damage.

The pocket-sized TE Air device is fully immersible for high-level disinfection and is ideal for hospital infection control due to its IP68-level waterproof and dustproof design.

Functioning and benefits of the handheld ultrasound system

The device is used to acquire and display ultrasound data in various scanning modes including B, M, PWD, Colour Doppler, Amplitude Doppler, Combined mode (Color+B, Power+B), Tissue Harmonic Imaging, and TDI mode.

With specific exam pre-sets and complete imaging modes, the TE Air enables physicians to carry out ultrasound assessments more efficiently and provides more accurate decision-making assistance.

TE Air can be easily integrated with the hospital’s information system to improve hospital workflow, while de-identified data is retained and shared to satisfy demands for teaching, training, consulting, and case sharing.

The TE Air app perfectly combines simplicity and efficiency by allowing one-handed operation in any place. It offers extreme mobility with flexible charging. Furthermore, TE Air App offers an intuitive user interface, is designed for ease of use and offers patient data management solutions.
