The state-of-the-art lab includes a multi-screen high resolution visualization wall for analysis as well as simulation, touch and surface computing devices. MEDIC also has consumer and commercial grade medical devices, mobile computing devices, simulators suitable for large scale testing, internet accessible private cloud computing facilities, and access to an online, sandboxed versions of various eHealth ecosystems.
