Advantech's PIT-1503W Patient Infotainment Terminal runs an Intel Atom D510 processor and is designed with a 15.6" wide, projective capacitive touch (PCT) full-flat glass panel. It has a sleek iPad look and feel, with customizable colors and icons. The panel design is lightweight and slim which makes it easy for patients to move, as well as for caregivers who can use the device for sharing information to the patient.
Its dual task increases efficiency, can improve patient wellbeing and even adding revenue streams to the hospital. The proven technology is running successfully in hospitals around the world and migration from the PIT-1502W is transparent, as all applications will easily port to the new system. Running Windows 7 or Linux, two-finger multi-touch can be used to rotate, flick images off-screen or zoom in and out. This allows for easy zooming and rotation of X-ray or patient images during a patient consultation. The full-flat panel is 7H-rated.
It is highly resistant to scratches and can be kept clean with hospital-grade anti-bacterial cleaning solutions. Function keys are also accessible from under the glass panel and not subject to the wear and tear that can afflict membrane-covered keys. Light transmission of PIT-1503W's PCT screen is excellent (90% compared to 80% from resistive touch technologies) and the increased multi-touch sensitivity makes it responsive as well as intuitive.
The unit's color can be customized as can its button icons so that it fits the specific requirements of different hospitals. The PIT-1503W supports a host of peripherals including RFID, CCD, Wi-Fi connectivity, TV tuner and Smartcard reader.
