As we know, ultrasound sensors produce sound waves with frequencies above human range. And, these are used to transmit through an object to measure or image internal features. Ultrasound imaging is commonly used in maternity wards and other hospital departments and is extensively applied in industrial settings as a safe Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) technique to reveal deformities, cracks or corrosion beneath the surface.
World’s first truly flexible ultrasound sensors!
Novosound was founded in 2018 by Dave Hughes and Richard Cooper as a spin-out from the University of the West of Scotland. Scottish startup Novosound uses thin film deposition techniques to innovate the ultrasound sensor technology. It has developed a unique film core material, which eliminates limitations associated with the existing ultrasound sensor solutions.
