Medaphor to accelerate US sales of Scantrainer simulator

Medaphor has raised £1.06m — £300,000 of which was invested by Fusion IP — in an equity funding round to accelerate the US sales and new product development of its Scantrainer ultrasound training simulator.

The funds will be used to expand its US- and European-based sales and to hasten the development of Medaphor’s product range into general medical training.

Scantrainer replicates a real ultrasound scanning experience, allowing trainees to develop their skills without the need for an ultrasound machine or patient.
