Convertible tablets are everywhere, but very few of them can help a doctor to save your life. Toshiba’s Viamo can. The Viamo is a portable ultrasound device with some tactile knobs and buttons, but it can be entirely controlled by the touchscreen, which folds down flat.

Yes, it looks bulky and it isn’t as portable as other ultrasound machines, but it looks quite a bit more advanced than others. This guy even mounts on a pole so you can wheel it around the ER. Viamo has just been approved by the FDA and is now available in the US. Maybe it will replace the clipboard entirely.

The touchscreen tablet lets them instantly document cases on the go and facilitates quick diagnosis and communication.
