Medical Positioning, Inc. (MPI), based in Kansas City, MO was founded in 1988 as American Echo with the release of our flagship product, the EchoBed®. The first of its kind specialty medical bed to feature a drop away section, known today as the Imaging Drop Section, the EchoBed® was specifically designed for echocardiograms and allows for unhindered ergonomic access to the apical view during echocardiograms, ensuring accurate test results.

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. Our product line has grown to incorporate platforms designed for Supine Bike Stress Echocardiograms (Stress EchoBed), Head Up Tilt Table Testing (HUT, RRHUT), General and Women’s Ultrasound (UltraScan, UltraScan Premier), Vascular Imaging (VasScan), Stereotactic Decubitus and Upright Breast Biopsy (UltraDBI, DBI) General Surgery Pain Management (GSPM) and most recently, a platform designed for Modified Barium Swallow Studies (VizaVue), which satisfies the low table height requirement of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Improved outcomes, increased throughput, ADA compliance and enhanced patient and staff safety are just a few benefits provided by our specialized products. Equally important, the quality of our product ensures an industry leading long-term-value for your investment.
