The very first touch screen medical tablet invented made in Africa.It is a computer tablet that is used for heart examinations. The gadget allows such examination as electrocardiograms to be conducted in the rural and inaccessible locations. With the cardio-pad, electrodes are placed on the patients and connected to module that, in turn, connects to the tablet. When a medical examination is conducted or performed on a patient in a remote village, for example, the result are transmitted from the nurse’s tablet to that of the doctor who then interprets them.
