DT Research Unveils New Line of Medical-Cart Computers

DT Research has announced the DT590 series of All-in-One Medical-Cart Computers, integrating small and inexpensive hot-swappable batteries to facilitate mobility for health care applications. The design of the DT Research Medical-Cart Computers addresses long-standing 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. The DT590 series can make data access efficient, optimize staff workflow, and minimize the total cost of ownership.

“Doctors, nurses and health care 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 19-inch, 22-inch or 24-inch display with a high performance Intel 5th Generation Core i7, i3, or Celeron processor in a compact, mountable package. It boasts a three-bay hot-swappable battery system for zero downtime work environments to increase 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.•
