The PDC-190S medical display with an IP65-rated front panel offers a high contrast 19in MVA-type LCD flat panel. It displays brilliant, high resolution imagery with a 1000:1 contrast ratio. It is HD ready, capable of displaying progressive scan video up to 1280 x 720 pixels. The wide viewing angle (170°/170°) and sharp image quality make PDC-190S suitable for high precision medical applications such as endoscopy.

A mobile clinical assistant offering complete medical solutions

MICA-101, a 10.4in fanless mobile clinical assistant, has a low-power Intel Atom™ processor, dual resistive and digitizer panels for either direct touch or digital pen operation. It is ergonomic, compact and lightweight — perfect for carrying on hospital rounds. It features RFID and barcode scanners, a fingerprint reader, a webcam and various wireless connectivity options. MICA-101 is a versatile instrument, whether querying back-end systems for patient data, scanning medicine to prevent errors, identifying staff or patients, or taking and transmitting photographs of patient wounds. In addition to WIFI, MICA-101 also handles Bluetooth and 3.5 G mobile communications, allowing it to always be in contact with the hospital or clinic. It is great for providers of in-home care, and can also be used for remote consultations between patient and doctor.
