From the IT Perspective:

  • LiNano Battery – Comes with 5 Year Warranty and Rated for 5000 Cycles.  That is almost 7 years before replacing batteries! DO NOT COMPARE to other manufacturer’s Lithium Batteries.  Theirs have half the life…2500 Cycles.  We have a Mid-Grade to compete with those, if you like.  But why go Mid-Grade and replace after 3.5 years?
  • Easy Access Battery Storage Area – Pop off the Footrest and there it is!
  • MetroMonitor Software – Allows IT Dept. to remotely see WOW or COW and its battery health instantly.
  • Easy Access Tech Tray – Unlock the Worksurface and remove.  There is the Thin Client, Laptop or Computer.

From the Health System Perspective:

  • Best Value – Cost of Ownership is Lowest
  • Longest Battery Life Each Day and Rated for 5000+ Cycles
  • 5 Year Warranty on Mechanical Parts and LiNano Batteries

This new Point of Care platform is leading the industry in User Efficiency, Data Accuracy, Availibilty and Monitoring.

With Daily Availability of 13 hours, why consider anything else?
