The company was founded in 2011 by Jonathan Rothberg, Nevada Sanchez, and Tyler Ralston in Guilford, Connecticu, United States. The company has developed their Ultrasound-on-Chip technology that is meant to replace the Piezo crystal transducer systems of older ultrasonography equipment with a single silicon chip.

They also offer their app features more than twenty presets and familiar touch interactions. Presets on the app can be set for examines such as cardiac, abdomen, bladder, aorta, gallbladder, lung, musculoskeletal, and more. There are five modes available for use including B-mode, M-mode, color doppler, power doppler and pulse wave doppler.
