Medical All-In-One PCs Can Greatly Aid Early Detection Efforts In Hospitals

How Touchscreen Computers Can Aid Early Detection Efforts

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer are two of the leading causes of death globally, and the combat of these conditions is critical to improving general public health. The best methods of treating such diseases rely on the early detection of these medical issues, which is not always possible. Early detection efforts can be stalled by a lack of available medical personnel, slow medical computers, or a combination of both. However, a study by Yoong SL, Carey ML, Sanson-Fisher RW in BMJ Open sheds light on a promising technology that can aid early detection efforts:

Touchscreen Medical Devices

The study found that a rise in the prominence of touchscreen computers, such as those featuring medical LCD monitors, increased the potential of these technologies to assist in health risk factor assessment as well as the delivery of healthcare advice. Patients and doctors found the use of touchscreen devices, such as medical lLCD monitor enabled touchscreen computers, to be of great use in taking down patient information, and it’s easy to see why.

 

Touchscreen Medical LCD Monitors: Built For The Hospital

The study sought to uncover whether or not both patients and doctors were comfortable with the use of touchscreen medical devices to take down information, as these devices prove to be a fast way of digitizing patient information. The simple reason that medical LCD monitors are valuable tools in aiding early detection efforts is the fact that they are built for the medical space and allow doctors the ergonomics of a commercial tablet and the compliance of medical grade equipment. Medical LCD monitors are IEC 60601-1-2 4th Edition Certified for use in the medical setting, and feature an antimicrobial enclosure that negates the growth of harmful pathogens. When using medical LCD monitors, the only thing doctors have to worry about is their patient’s well-being.

Many Sizes Of Medical LCD Monitors To Choose From

The study suggested that the small form factor of touchscreen medical devices allowed for robust and mobile use in early detection efforts, and there is good reason why. Touchscreen medical LCD monitors come in many different sizes to fit every need in the medical setting. Tangent’s lineup of medical grade tablets feature similar touchscreen medical LCD monitor displays that allow them to be used in such a mobile manner. Even Tangent’s desktop based medical grade computers feature touchscreen medical LCD monitors that allow for these all in one PCs to make full use of their innovative design, allowing doctors to easily access patient information with just a touch. Of course, all of these medical LCD monitor based computers and tablets are IEC 60601-1-2 Certified and feature antimicrobial enclosures.

 

Early Detection Made Easy

Early detection efforts are crucial to creating a safer, healthier world. Touchscreen computers like those featuring medical LCD monitors are one way to expedite the early detection process, potentially saving lives, and time, in the process.

Touchscreen Computers for Industrial Use

Touchscreen Computers For Industrial Use

It almost seems counterintuitive to imagine touchscreen computers in an industrial workplace. Grime covered gloves or hands touching a computer screen seems like it would lead to more problems than it solves. But then again, is it any better that the same gloves or hands are touching a mouse and keyboard? The shocking reality is that touchscreen computers are not only a great choice for industrial use, but can be used widely in situations where normal computers can’t perform.

 

Protection From The Elements

Commercial grade computers are designed to be used at the desk, and don’t typically feature any design elements that would help them in an industrial environment. Industrial environments can be extremely hot or cold, dusty, or even wet— and all of these things can quickly cripple a commercial grade computer.

Vita KW Touchscreen Computer

Industrial touchscreen computers are designed from the ground up to be used in an industrial setting. Touchscreen computers like the Vita KW from Tangent sport features such as passive cooling systems that enable them to not only work under high temperatures, but to do so without faltering over time. These touchscreen computers do not have a fan-based cooling system like those used in commercial grade computers. In an industrial setting, a fan-based cooling system would quickly cause a massive dust build up within the enclosure of the computer. This drastically decreases performance, and in some cases can lead to the computer failing altogether. A solid enclosure ensures that dust build up is mitigated, and requires less maintenance over time.

 

While dust is a primary concern, it’s not the only thing to be worried about affecting your computer on the job site. Extreme temperatures are common in the industrial setting, and can prevent one from having a computer based workstation at a certain location. That is, unless you are using the F15 Touchscreen Computer from Tangent. The F15 features a fanless cooling system like the Vita KW, and can withstand extreme temperatures from -4°F to 140°F. On top of all of this, the F15 is IP65 rated to be completely sealed & protected against water and dirt intrusion in harsh environments.

VITA 474 Touchscreen Computer

Used Anywhere, Anytime.

Not only can Tangent’s lineup of industrial touchscreen computers be used in any environment, they are sleek enough to fit in any location as well. There may be a portion of your facility where you would like to have a workstation, but the area is simply not large enough to fit a desk, tower, monitor, keyboard, and mouse. That’s where touchscreen computers like the Vita 474 from Tangent can make the difference, easily mounting to a wall at any location and turning it into a full functioning workstation. The Vita 474 is powerful enough to run industrial software, sporting Intel 6th Gen Core i5 processor while being able to be mounted in any location.

 

For workers who are on the move constantly, there’s touchscreen computer tablets like the R10 Tablet from Tangent. These tablets are able to run industrial software and hook up directly to your factory or warehouse network. They allow workers to perform their duties while on the go, regardless of of their vicinity to a desk.

 

Touchscreen Computers: Industry’s Best Friend

Whether it’s a hot place, a tight place, a spacious place, touchscreen computers can turn them into optimal workstations. At Tangent, we make a wide variety of touchscreen computers that combined, make the perfect IT solution to your industrial needs.

Touchscreen Computers –  Touching on a Future of Self-Service

Touchscreen Computers –  Touching on a Future of Self-Service

Over the last couple decades, self service technologies have revolutionized how people conduct business, travel and even receive healthcare services.These technologies have vastly improved efficiency through increased control over service delivery, convenience, reduction in wait time, reduction in operating costs, and flexibility in use. At many restaurants, dozens of flavors of sodas can be mixed and dispensed at the touch of a screen, and ordering one’s own food on tablets is an increasingly popular trend. Shopping malls and corporate offices provide interactive directories to its visitors, and it is nearly impossible to encounter any ticketing area of an airport that is not brimming with touchscreen kiosks for checking in and getting flight information. Self-service touchscreen computers are appearing in hospitals in great numbers as well. Patients are checking into their appointments without the help of medical administrators which is streamlining administrative tasks like hospital registration and payments.

 

Touchscreen computer technology is widely available and the demand for it is extremely apparent, but how durable are these machines that are abused on a daily basis? After all, a solution is only effective if it is reliable. Luckily, industrial touchscreen computers like the ones offered by Tangent benefit from a durable and rigorously tested construction. Tangent’s S Series of 15″, 19″, and 22″ touchscreen computers are assembled with rugged, stainless steel housing  that offers a corrosion resistant surface. The standard casing is IP66/NEMA 4x rated, which means the enclosure is constructed for either indoor or outdoor use and provides a degree of protection against dirt, rain, snow, windblown dust, splashing water, hose-directed water, and corrosion. The S series also has an optional IP69K rated enclosure which means that high pressure and high temperature washdown can be used to sanitize the equipment. Of course this is likely overkill for most applications, but it’s nice to know the equipment can handily be subjected to such a powerful scrub and high heat without experiencing any damage.

 

One of the better advancements in touchscreen technology is Projected Capacitive Touch, also known as PCAP. The first capacitive touchscreen required a bare finger to use and could not allow for multi-touch, but now PCAP touchscreens offer high precision multi-touch functionality and high response speed. They also work when operated by a hand covered in surgical gloves or other thin gloves, which is essential in a hospital or industrial settings. The S series offers this PCAP as an option on all sizes of their touchscreen PCs. And like with many of Tangent’s industrial products, the unit is rated for shock protection and has a fanless design for extreme reliability, and noise-free operation. For an added measure of autonomy and utility, the S series can be equipped with Intel Wireless AC-7260 & Bluetooth for a relatively wire-free system. The efficiencies that touchscreen computers provide are nearly boundless, and with such reliable systems available, companies are able to utilize them to their full potential.
