Medical-Grade PC Helps Healthcare Go Digital

March 3, 2008 - Tangent Inc. released its Medix 1500, a medical grade, point-of-care, touchscreen PC with a 15-17 inch display and power savings by using a L2400 Intel Core Duo 15 watt CPU.

The medical grade PC is also fanless, which reportedly provides a dust-free operation and makes it easier to clean using a 10 percent bleach/water disinfectant solution whereas the competition uses fans and exposed ventilation holes making it difficult to spray with cleaning agents.

The Medix1500 weighs l6.9 lbs making it light enough for cart-based applications, said Tangent. It also comes with a shock-absorbing HDD mounting system to absorb impacts in cart applications.
