Santa Clara, CA and Henderson, NV – October 14, 2020 – 10:30 a.m. PT -- Vave Health, a maker of innovative handheld ultrasound technology, today announced a partnership with Touro University Nevada, Nevada's largest school of medicine and the state's only school of osteopathic medicine, to provide students with wireless pocket-sized ultrasound devices. The ultrasound probes will further students' education by introducing them to the necessary tools for point-of-care-ultrasound and enable them to receive hands-on training in diverse settings. The partnership will supply Touro's students with a personal wireless Vave ultrasound and an ongoing Vave EduPlus Membership. Touro is the first medical school in the country to collaborate with Vave on customizing product software for teaching and learning purposes.

The partnership provides Touro's students with the world's first ultrasound-driven medical curriculum focusing on augmenting the foundational sciences, enhancing test preparation, and developing clinical skills to lay the foundation for future clinicians. The Vave ultrasound probe features a portable and wireless design that easily fits in the user's palm. The state-of-the-art device enables Touro students to use the ultrasound probe in a variety of environments, including clinical rotations, in-person lab classes, or remotely from their home.

As part of the Vave EduPlus Membership, students will also have access to ultrasound experts and in-app content to help bring foundational sciences to life, provide clinical context, and enhance preparation for medical exams.The integrated software will provide in-app analytics which will enable professors to provide real time guidance and measure student progress. Students can then apply the knowledge in the field during their own clinical rotations, a flexibility that wasn't possible until now.

"Putting a Vave ultrasound device in the hands of our students provides them with cutting-edge technology to further their hands-on education, something that is so critical, especially in a time when traditional forms of learning have been rattled by the pandemic," said Dr. Wolfgang Gillar, Dean, College of Osteopathic Medicine at Touro University Nevada. "We're proud to provide our students with a probe that allows them to practice in a variety of environments, whether in a hospital, rural area, or an underserved community. We hope this will pave the way for other medical schools to follow suit and explore this advanced technology for their own students."
