Featured Product Toughbook Dock

Universal Mount for the Toughbook H1

Gamber-Johnson's Universal Mounting Solution is the industry's only Toughbook Tested and approved Toughbook H1 universal mounting solution docking station. What's more, its VESA compliance makes it compatible with nearly any medical cart or wall mount.

Like the Toughbook H1, Gamber Johnson Universal Mounting solution is made from polycarbonate for easy sanitization and durability, and features a one-handed grab-and-go design for quick release and fast, secure docking. If additional security is desired, the Toughbook H1 can be locked into the mount with a key.

Gamber-Johnson's H1 Universal Mounting Solution offers full connectivity to monitors and peripheral devices, secure locking and storage, and access to Toughbook H1's barcode reader and SmartCard reader (even while mounted). Now that's a smart solution.

Toughbook Dock "We are excited at Ergotron about the new Toughbook H1 universal mounting solution docking station. This solution dramatically increases the versatility of the H1 product for caregivers allowing it to be wall mounted for easy charging or attached to the back of the cart for mobility and ultra mobility"

-Steve Reinecke, Global Director of Healthcare for Ergotron.

What customers are saying...

"The Toughbook H1 has made a significant impact in the efficiency of our nursing staff. With the H1, nurses can access critical patient information and document a patient's condition and vital signs at the bed side, eliminating the need to manually input hand-written nursing notes into a computer, search for patient files and possibly repeat work that may have already been completed.

Not only has the H1 increased productivity, it has also improved the quality of patient care, which is most important to us. Since patient information gets stored in our system in real time, nurses no longer have to worry about lost information, delay in data input, or miscommunication of critical information – all of which are common causes of medical errors.

We looked at other MCAs but selected the H1 for its superior durability, hot-swappable batteries, untethered wireless G capability and fully-sealed design and dual-touch screen. We are very happy with our choice."

–Doug Darby, Director of Information Systems Pioneers Memorial Hospital
