MPI was founded in 1988 as American Echo with the release of our flagship product, the EchoBed®. The first of its kind, the EchoBed® revolutionized sonography ergonomics, spearheading a specialty imaging table market with the introduction of a drop away section, known today as the Imaging Drop Section. This innovation allows for unhindered ergonomic access to the apical view during echocardiograms, reducing the risk of Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI) for sonographers, improving patient comfort, and facilitating faster, more accurate imaging.
Today, MPI’s product portfolio includes ergonomic and bariatric diagnostic imaging platforms designed to offer optimum positioning and improved imaging results across cardiology, vascular, radiology, breast biopsy, surgery, pain management, and speech pathology. With 20+ employees across all functions including Supply, Assembly, Finance, Engineering, Sales and Support, MPI provides an intimate, customer centric experience creating a distinct marketplace advantage.
