Big Machine Performance in a Hand-carried Unit
MicroMaxx’s purpose-built software and proprietary ASIC design yield high-quality images with speed and reliability while efficiently operating on either AC or battery power.
MicroMaxx Goes Anywhere You Need It
From busy offices and big-city hospitals to critical-care situations where seconds count, the MicroMaxx system boots up within 15 seconds. This easily-carried device gets medical professionals into-and out of-tight spaces fast.
Embedded Software Means Solid Reliability
The MicroMaxx system software is hard-wired and purpose-built for faster boot-up times, faster digital image processing, and the ability to run for a long time. Power is efficiently used, extending battery life for use wherever needed.
Chip Fusion Technology
SonoSite’s proprietary Chip Fusion technology enables advanced, cart-based image resolution in a hand-carried unit by integrating digital signal processing and multiple ultrasound functions into a custom ASIC microchip to deliver unprecedented performance without the size, weight, and cost of conventional systems.
Clinical Utility

  • The MicroMaxx system comes with a wide range of ultrasound transducers for multiple clinical applications.
  • The MicroMaxx system also includes SonoCalc® IMT, which is proprietary edge-detection software that enables clinicians and cardiology specialists to quickly and easily measure intima-media thickness of the carotid artery for assessment of arterial wall disease progression and cardiovascular risk
SonoSite products and technology deliver proven reliability and durability in conventional medical settings, as well as some far more challenging environments, such as supporting rescue operations following natural disasters. Extensive quality controls, such as “drop testing,” ensure that SonoSite products continue to set the industry standard for both reliability and durability.
5-Year Warranty
MicroMaxx’s reliability and durability are backed by a 5-year warranty, an industry first, far exceeding warranties available on competing products.
From “Off” to Scanning in Just Seconds
This is vitally important in many medical situations where seconds really do count – whether getting crucial diagnostic information in an emergency or making the best use of time in a hectic daily schedule.
