This joint venture Distec and Imerja Mobile Medical Cart provides high definition video, audio and image sharing to medical professionals and patients no matter where they are located. An integrated PC also provides online access to medical records; PACS information and Internet / N3 based services.
The ability to bring high definition Telehealth technology to the patient point of care is more important than ever in today’s dynamic healthcare environment. The Imerja Mobile Medical Cart enables medical professionals to provide patients access to care regardless of time or distance constraints. Medical and non-medical peripheral devices can be easily connected to the telepresence system to allow high-definition, real-time images to be shared, for example, images of a patient’s throat, ears or skin. All standards-based medical peripheral devices are interoperable so the practitioner cart is ideal for broadcasting medical procedures for education or telementoring.
The incorporated Polycom codec unit also has the unique ability to run in-band stethoscopes, which provides unparalleled quality for auscultation of heart and lung sounds in real time, while still giving the clinician the ability to view the patient.
The Imerja Medical Cart is specifically designed to meet the needs of mobile telehealth applications. The carts’ small footprint is designed around a durable, enclosed cart frame that is easy to clean, protects the internal electronics and computer from spills and provides the ultimate in manoeuvrability and flexibility.
The unit also contains a Small Form Factor PC allowing dual (including simultaneous) use of the ‘touch’ enabled screen allowing access to local IT applications, PACS images and online patient information.
