DT Research, a manufacturer of purpose-built computing solutions for vertical markets, announced the DT590 series of All-in-One Medical-Cart Computers, integrating small and inexpensive hot-swappable batteries to facilitate mobility for healthcare applications.
The DT Research medical-cart computers addresses challenges with Computers on Wheels (COWs) and Workstations on Wheels (WOWs) by providing a cordless, lightweight, and anti-microbial computer system that operates continuously with batteries that can be dynamically changed.
“Doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals at hospitals, medical clinics, laboratories and retirement communities have been plagued by significant computer design deficiencies while trying to enter and access patient data at the point-of-care, which has been a gating factor for many care facilities to fully embrace Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems,” said Daw Tsai Sc.D., president of DT Research. “We studied the issues with COWs and WOWs – all were related to unreliable, heavy, and expensive power supplies. Our focus for the DT590 series was to address the power supply issues, while also improving upon key medical computer functionality.”
The DT590 series features a vivid 19″, 22″, or 24″ display with a high performance Intel 5th Generation Core i7, i3, or Celeron processor in a compact, mountable package. A 3-bay hot-swappable battery system for zero downtime work environments allows for increased mobility over traditional workstations and decrease costs and maintenance associated with COWs.
Designed to sustain at least one working shift without adding charged batteries, DT Research medical-cart computers use inexpensive Lithium-ion batteries to combine for 250W capacity for up to 16 hours of runtime. With battery power and wireless connectivity, this computing solution is ideal for health professionals to manage patient information, dispense medication and work collaboratively.
Each unit features up to 6 USB ports, 4 legacy COM ports, 2 HDMI-out ports supporting concurrent 4K resolution, and RJ45 LAN connection. An optimized operating system running Microsoft Windows 7, 8.1, or 10 means healthcare providers that have existing medical solutions do not need to have their applications and equipment re-engineered to run on the DT590 systems. With a VESA standard mount, the DT590 series is compatible to the various medical carts, desktop stands and wall mounts available.
The DT590 series medical-cart computers are immediately available through authorized resellers and partners.
