Exam Room Workstation


Many clients are concerned that a desktop PC will be an intrusion in the exam room, or may get damaged by curious children. However, the desktop PC is the most popular choice among our clients. Along with a flat-panel monitor, the computer can easily be tucked away, the screen turned aside to avoid distraction, and the keyboard and the mouse can be locked for privacy and protection against little hands.

Typically a desktop or laptop fulfilling the following specs would cost: $1,000+.
