The ability to gather and access information with the touch of a fingertip, and carry it around wherever you go, is invaluable for those working in healthcare. It is for this reason that the healthcare industry has long dreamed of ways to harness the features of tablets and mobile devices. As this technology has evolved and developed in recent years, medical device manufacturers are rapidly integrating it into their solutions or adapting their current devices to a tablet form-factor because of their familiarity and preference with end users. Often overlooked, however, is how we position this technology to be available to clinicians, patients and visitors. How can we maintain the innate features of a mobile technology, while still being secure and not at risk of theft or damage? How can we make it readily available without being yet another device to carry around?
At GCX, we position technology to improve health. With this as our primary focus, we have the expertise to create tablet mounting solutions and drive successful user adoption. Some areas that we have applied this technology include:
Due to our years of experience and engagement directly with hospitals (as opposed to designing purely to a manufacturers specifications), we are aware of the pain points and challenges that come with mobile device adoption and can mitigate them. Here are just a few of the ways that we can position your tablet solution:
VHM‑T The industry’s only medical-grade mounting arm for tablets.
Cable Management: Enables easier cleaning, provides simple access for service, and creates a professional-looking installation.
Precision & Ease of Movement: The arm moves smoothly into place at every point across its full range of motion for optimal positioning and viewing.
Durability and Cleanability: Withstands constant use and cleaning regimens to outlast generations of devices.
Post/Rail Clamp A compact, quick connect clamp that allows for speedy docking/undocking of smaller devices onto similar size posts or rails.
Patient Tablet Arm Long-reach tablet arms for patient use to meet Patient Engagement objectives.
