This paper discusses a novel ultrasonograph for visual health promotion for personal use. We have developed an innovative, small, light-weight, low-price, ultrasonograph: the Eco-U-Sound. The operator can check how healthy his/her body is at anytime, anywhere like a doctor. Also, we have developed a cross-sectional image viewer: C-SIV to show the complete cross-sectional image of human extremities. The operator can check the volume balance of muscle, fat, bone areas clearly. Visual feedback provides powerful direction on the operator's health. We show the developed system based on the patents (#333-03548, #333-03549, #333-03446) and explain the expected market with a business model.
