World of Health Care 2017 visitors voted Usono as the winner of the Smart Solutions Award. As one of 46 exhibitors at the event in The Hague, Usono presented their Smart Ultra Sound Solutions to 600 healthcare professionals. Usono’s Smart Solutions tackle shared challenges to modernise, optimise and increase the quality, affordability, and accessibility of healthcare. More than two years of research by the HighTechXL alumnus resulted in patented products, fully focused on enhancing ultrasound examination quality.

On the mainstage Usono received the World of Health Care Voucher to join a Task Force Health Care international trade missions of their choice. Jori Verbeek (Chief Technology Officer at Usono): “It’s great to win this award. I haven’t thought of any international activity in particular yet. But if it’s again in the presence of Royalty we are more than happy to join!”
