Vscan Extend is durable, robust, and built for diverse clinical environments. Vscan Extend can tolerate a 1 meter drop with only minor scratches and bumps expected. The probe cable has a nylon string in its cord to protect the wires. Its cover is made with light magnesium alloy instead of plastic to help protect the electronics. Built in drop zones further protect the electronics. Vscan Extend's bezel edge helps protect against fluid and dust particles.
