The Apple iPad features iOS, the company's operating system, and an A5 chip with two cores, which allows for smooth multitasking and quick downloads. In the healthcare setting, some of the apps include medical imaging, medical inventory management, and medical reference sites such as Blausen Human Atlas and Visual Dx Mobile. Apple says the iPad 2 has nine times the graphics performance of its first-generation model, and the thin, light tablet has a 10-hour battery life.
Many clinicians find the iPad appealing because of the huge collection of medical apps available for the device. Pictured here is the iPad with a screenshot of an application from 3d4 Medical.
