The latest Mobile PC from The BVM Group is ICEFire, a 10.4 inch tablet PC optimised for use in the medical environment. It features dual 1880mAh medical grade li-ion hot swap battery packs, which ensure availability 24/7.

In the medical environment it retrieves patient data at the bedside, will capture and store patient symptoms in an emergency and gives instant access to the patient’s medical history to aid real-time diagnosis.
In common with all BVM Mobile devices, communications are a key feature. ICEFire supports 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless LAN, has an Ethernet LAN port and, for remote working, has a 3.75G modem for WAN connectivity.

Bluetooth provides a secure method of connecting with mobile phones, hands-free headset, printer or other Bluetooth-enabled medical devices. A 3 Megapixel camera enables the unit to capture images or data for local storage or onwards transmission to a remote server.
The unit comes with a multi-function wall mounting, desktop, swing arm or VESA mounting docking station that powers the unit, charging both batteries, and also recharges a further two removable battery packs.
