SAN DIEGO, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the HIMSS Conference, Tremont Medical, a renowned mobile systems healthcare solution provider, announced the availability of ROSY, its groundbreaking point-of-care RO-aming SY-stem. ROSY encompasses ergonomics, functionality and safety standards unmatched in the healthcare industry. The exclusive reseller, Datavision, is providing full service integration and support for ROSY through its integration services of wireless and mobile technologies.

"Based on years of experience in engineering mobile workstations for hospitals, clinics and nursing homes, we designed the most comprehensive and amazingly easy-to-use, point-of-care solution," said Joe Clayton, vice president of marketing and sales at Tremont Medical. "Our number one customers are nurses and clinicians. They need to safely, easily and quickly move the workstation between beds and hallways, access patient information while right next to the patient and depend on the system being reliable and available at all times. Their input on the design and functionality of ROSY is reflected in the comprehensive feature-set achieved. The result is a point-of-care solution that leapfrogs anything else out there."

 

ROSY's key features include: -- Revolutionary vehicle maneuverability designed from the base up to easily move forward, backward, turn and reverse directions over the range of facility surfaces and floor textures; coupled with the extremely low center of gravity achieved through optimal weight distribution; the stability of ROSY is unprecedented. -- Multi-axis independent articulation of both display and keyboard to comfortably accommodate the extreme range of sizes of practitioners in both standing and sitting positions; convenient centrally located work-surface as well as protected lockable compartments, all with a new more durable, more resilient design and professional appearance. -- UL2601 for the highest standard of safety for use in close patient proximity. -- Extended battery capacity of up to an 1150 watt-hour power system for multi-shift operation between charges, and rapid re-charge time that exceeds the typical six hour battery life available today. -- Integrated functionality for vital-signs monitoring, full wireless capabilities, and a rich set of onboard information processing options for supporting the broad range of application architectures.

"The industry needs more than just a computer on wheels," said Terry O'Neill, executive vice president at Datavision. "Through shared philosophies and approaches in delivering medical devices, Tremont and Datavision are able to provide world-class solutions that improve the quality and delivery of patient care and improve the work experience for care givers."
