MuscleSound® Provides Free Technology to Hospitals Treating COVID-19 Patients MuscleSound®, a Denver based MuscleHealth® technology company, has announced it is offering free access to its proprietary, non-invasive ultrasound technology to hospitals treating COVID-19 patients.
This technology can assist medical professionals in monitoring and managing Coronavirus patient recovery.
MuscleSound is the only technology that can rapidly quantify muscle health at the patient’s bedside. The test takes less than two minutes and is entirely non-invasive.
Muscle health contributes to crucial health-related functions, including breathing, metabolism, digestion, blood circulation, immune system status, blood glucose regulation, and overall quality of life.
This system of capturing and analyzing real-time muscle health data can assist medical professionals in knowing when Coronavirus patients are declining or improving, especially in ICU cases where up to 20% of muscle mass can be lost within the first week of hospitalization.
MuscleSound’s technology is currently used around the globe. A range of clinical and research teams at Duke University Health System have been using and studying MuscleSound for over a year, testing its validity for use in the ICU, Oncology and Perioperative Care (prehab/rehab) and are now expediting research on COVID-19 patients.
