Flo Healthcare Remains Innovator In Wireless Mobile Workstations

New Flo 3000 Series Integrates Wireless Technology into Sleek Mobile Clinical & Storage Workstation Attention: Health/Medical Editor ATLANTA, GA.--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 10, 2005) - Flo Healthcare continues to set the standard in mobile clinical workstation design as it is scheduled to unveil a prototype of its new Flo 3000 concept cart at booth #1043 during the HIMSS Conference & Expo in Dallas on Monday, February 14. The Flo 3000 combines the convenience of reliable wireless computing technology with advanced storage capabilities into one sleek mobile unit.

Flo Healthcare designs and builds mobile clinical workstations that help doctors and nurses more effectively connect with real-time information at the point-of-care. As a result, doctors and nurses using Flo products are able to spend more productive time with patients, while hospitals improve care, enhance safety, and increase patient satisfaction.

With more patents on its design than any other mobile workstation manufacturer, Flo Healthcare's products deliver the standard in ergonomics, aesthetics and ease-of-use, as well as a smart combination of reliability and wireless capability.

"Clinicians need tools that not only give them real-time access to critical information, but also look good, feel good, are easily maneuverable and fit in small spaces and near the bedside --- all of which we encapsulate in our products," said Tom Denmark, Flo Healthcare President and CEO.

Flo mobile workstations integrate wireless capabilities to ensure access to data and related applications for doctors and nurses who place a premium on the ability to connect to real-time information. Hospitals and IT professionals appreciate the products' unique combination of reliability, value, mobility, wireless capabilities, UL- 60601 certification, and flexibility to incorporate accessories such as bar-code scanners.

"Clinical workstations have evolved from simple hardware into completely mobile information centers," said Keith Washington, Flo Healthcare Vice President of Business Development. "In turn, doctors and nurses do their jobs better by working smarter."

As a testament to the company's commitment to innovation, Flo Healthcare will demonstrate its Flo 3000 series concept cart during the HIMSS Annual Conference & Expo, beginning February 14 in Dallas. This advanced mobile workstation integrates real-time wireless information access with advanced configurable storage capabilities, a narrow footprint, and improved battery options over earlier models. Its innovative, flexible design and technology integration is ideal for clinicians looking for an easy-to-use yet sophisticated cart alternative that increases productivity at the bedside.

"We are constantly innovating in response to market demand, and we develop our products based on feedback from clinicians," Washington said. "Our research shows that separate storage cabinets and computer workstations are a thing of the past -- convergence is the trend in mobile workstations. Our Flo 3000 series is a hybrid, integrating wireless technology into a sleeker version of a storage solution for a number of applications, including medication administration, phlebotomy, or even admissions, and making all of it mobile."

Flo Healthcare is seeking feedback about its Flo 3000 series from industry professionals, who will be eligible to win iPods during the HIMSS Conference for reviewing the cart and submitting their comments and suggestions.
