WITH MOTOROLA MAX DATA CAPTURE
Take the quality of care, patient safety and healthcare
worker productivity to the next level in your institution
with Motorola’s healthcare mobile computing portfolio.
With our easy-to-use and easy-to-carry devices, your
healthcare workers can access patient information,
perform a triple check to verify the right medication is
about to be administered to the right patient, monitor
patient vital signs, place pharmacy and lab orders,
access test results and more — all in just seconds,
anywhere inside your healthcare facility.
With our healthcare mobile computers in hand, your
staff can electronically capture and transmit virtually
any type of data from patient bedside right to your
business systems. Our revolutionary scan engine delivers
unparalleled performance on every 1D and 2D bar
code and is optimized for the read ranges and bar code
densities common in healthcare — including those on
small vials and test tubes. Omnidirectional scanning
provides true point and shoot scanning simplicity —
no need to align the bar code in the field of view. Firsttime, every time scanning of even damaged and poor
quality bar codes enhances user confidence and data
capture speed. In addition, the integrated 3.2 megapixel
autofocus color flash-enabled camera combines with
the latest in display technology to enable the easy
capture and viewing of high-resolution photographs,
video footage and documents — complete with legible
fine print.
Add government-grade security for HIPAA compliance, a
rugged design to endure daily use inside the hospital, a
disinfectant-ready housing designed to withstand regular
exposure to the harsh cleaning agents required to prevent
the spread of bacteria, powerful tools for centralized
management of all your mobile devices — including
attached device accessories — and you have maximum
value in a minimum footprint, all at the right price.

THE POWER TO SUPPORT ALL OF YOUR
POINT-OF-CARE APPLICATIONS
With our healthcare mobile computers, your clinical
staff can count on consistent best-in-class mobile
application performance, regardless of whether
your applications incorporate high resolution video,
documents and images or large databases that must
be resident on the device. This family offers a robust
processing platform, from operating system to memory
architecture, including Microsoft Windows Mobile
6.5; a MarvellTM PXA320 processor with 806 MHz of
blazing speed; and 256MB RAM/1GB Flash with a user
accessible microSD slot to accommodate up to 32GB
of additional storage. And the ability to automatically
switch between portrait and landscape display modes
with a flick of the wrist provides additional real-estate
and easier viewing for more complex applications.
A RUGGED DESIGN BUILT FOR
LIFE IN THE HOSPITAL
Our healthcare devices are built to last — and our
toughness tests prove it. Motorola MAX Rugged,
Motorola’s set of signature rugged specifications
— including MIL-STD 810G — ensures outstanding
performance. Even after exposure to heat, cold, dust,
drops, spills, wipedowns, constant disinfecting and
1,000 consecutive tumbles in our rotating tumble drum,
the devices continue to operate reliably. The result is a
dramatic reduction in repair requirements and downtime
and a strong return on asset (ROA).
In addition, the ability to frequently disinfect our mobile
computers throughout the day helps prevent the spread
of bacteria among patients and caregivers. The special
housing can be safely sanitized with many common
cleaning agents, without damaging the plastics or the
sensitive electronic components.
