Global interest in the Ultrasound Rainbow Probe Badge

As Medical Ultrasound Month #MUAM and the launch of our User QA Manual approaches, we thought it would be timely to take a look back over the last few months.

In the spring when Covid-19 was declared a worldwide pandemic, healthcare systems across the globe came under serious strain. Many did not realise how ultrasound imaging became a key diagnostic tool to identify Covid-19 in patients.  However, as an ultrasound company we felt a sense of responsibility to make sure the ultrasound community was recognised, and thanked.   Thus, the “Ultrasound Rainbow Probe” badge was manufactured as a symbol of thanks, but also to recognise how hard the community strived to maintain patient care and quality.

Badges were sent to each NHS trust with an imaging department in the UK. News spread via our website and social media and 5,000 badges were quickly gone requiring us to order 2,500 more.

We have now sent badges to the United States of America, Brazil, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Zambia, Ghana, Kenya, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and all the way to Australia to name but a few countries. The response and enthusiasm towards the Rainbow Probe badge have been amazing, and some of the pictures we have received have been heart-warming.

As a further thank you, we have written an Ultrasound Quality Assurance Manual.  It aims to provide clear information and practical guidelines for implementing ultrasound QA, and will be distributed freely from November 2020.

Ultrasound Rainbow Probe

Ultrasound Rainbow Probe

Today, Multi-Medix completed its first wave of sending out “Ultrasound Rainbow Probe” badges, with a a thank you card, to those that have worked with ultrasound during the Covid-19 pandemic.

All UK NHS Hospitals have now been sent badges and thank you cards.   If you would like more badges for your team, please email us at info@multi-medix.com with your name, address and the number of badges you would like.

A message from our MD, Darren Woolley about the “Ultrasound Rainbow Probe” badges:

During the course of the pandemic we know that ultrasound has become an essential diagnostic tool for Covid 19 patients.  Alongside other professions, sonographers have been on the “frontline”, whilst maintaining traditional scanning during these challenging times. 

Your work has not gone unnoticed, and we are writing to express our gratitude and thanks to all hospital ultrasound departments and teams.

Whilst we have regularly commended and clapped to show our gratitude for all staff and keyworkers, as an ultrasound company we wanted to find a way to recognise the ultrasound community specifically – as a result the “rainbow probe” image was created.

The image symbolises the ultrasound community’s commitment to patient care and quality – now, and in the future.

We have also created a book on Ultrasound Quality Assurance.  It aims to provide clear information and practical guidelines for implementing QA, which is essential for ultrasound, and will be distributed freely later in the year.
