Device to help doctors treating Ebola patients developed

  • Google and technology volunteers have developed a tablet that would help doctors treating Ebola patients. As per media reports, the device can withstand being doused in chlorine and can be used wearing gloves. It can also withstand high humidity and storms. Considering the fact that at the height of the disease medics had to shout patient notes across fences to avoid contamination, Medecins Sans Frontieres called for a device that would help healthcare teams record patient information. A technology advisor at MSF said the tablet comes with waterproof casing at an "industrial level."
