The Phrazer offers a possible solution to this problem.

This information is then summarized into a medical record compatible with all major EMR systems.Read More

It has a useful carry handle and fold-away foot platforms, is gyro-stabilized and the Li-ion batteries offer a range of about 12 miles between charges.Read More
