A company in Dublin, Ireland named Lincor Solutions has created the MEDIVista, a touchscreen LCD display designed to be used by patients, doctors and nurses. The device could serve many different purposes. The displays are conveniently mounted next to the bed so that healthcare workers can use it for medical needs. Typical things like displaying x-rays or medical info. But the cool part is that the patient can also use it to entertain themselves.
The patient can watch TV, listen to the radio, even make calls, as well as surf the web and check email. It also sports web based games and audio books. The company recently signed an agreement with a New Jersey based hospital to install the interactive displays on all 397 hospital beds. This should make hospital stays much more pleasent. Now if you can only get some good food, you’d all set for a long stay.
