Are you a student that likes to work on interesting and complex projects? Do you want to work at a company where you can really contribute? Do you want to join a great team? We are looking for you!

Who are we?
Usono is a high potential startup that ease, improve and innovate the way ultrasound is being used. We focus on creating new and innovative solutions for the ultrasound market by making ultrasound easier and more accessible for operators. We enhance current procedures and develop new ultrasound applications by using state of the art technology. This includes wearable & hands-free ultrasound solutions.

Background
Ultrasonography is a cost-friendly, easy and non-invasive technique to determine the muscle function. Within the sports field, ultrasound is mainly used to diagnose structural damage to muscle and to monitor recovery during the rehabilitation process which determines the Return to Play of a player. Ultrasound measurements are in general performed in a static way. Static measurements are relevant, however dynamic measurements allow for more data which leads to better understanding of the muscle function during the rehabilitation process. Usono developed the ProbeFix Dynamic, which allows the clinician to attach an ultrasound transducer to a during dynamic exercises. This supports better insight of the muscle function, muscle mechanics & structure during the rehabilitation process which leads to a better prediction of the Return to Play of an athlete.

Assignment
