Information and entertainment at the bedside


The Patient Infotainment Terminal (PIT) series by Taiwanese computer producer Advantech constitutes a win-win approach. It solves the problem of patient boredom while hospitalized or in home treatment, as well as offering caregivers access to electronic patient records at the bedside and the possibility of sharing data and communicating with each other.

The PIT also facilitates patient communication with family and friends via integrated telephone, e-mail and Skype. Multimedia entertainment functions range from internet access to games and fitness exercises.

Access to the hospital Intranet provides the patient with disease and health information, if desired.

The terminals are available in different sizes and can be mounted on a nursing cart, a desktop or wherever convenient.
