Ease of Use
“When it comes to simplifying a potentially complex user interface, there is nothing easier than touch,” says Derek Leung, American Portwell Technology’s product specialist. “Users just point to what they want.  It’s fast, it’s safe, it reduces error and it speeds up training and application familiarity. In many cases, touch even cuts through the language barriers. So, the addition of the PMD LCD touch monitor series to its expanding family of medical embedded computing solutions was the natural choice for a forward-thinking company like Portwell,” Leung adds.
