Doctors will surely be thrilled by this invention, that was originally posted over here: a washable tablet that will replace all medical paper records. Instead of misplacing such important papers, you can now use a Toshiba Rx tablet, the creation of designer Geoffrey Cooper and the perfect replacement for a nurse’s clipboard.

This is a touchscreen tablet we’re talking about, also used for quick diagnose and communication between doctors. The Rx tablet comes with a docking station and a keyboard for those who need it as a desktop unit and you should know that the dock is also used for charging purposes.

As far as the washable part is concerned, this gadget is basically a single piece, covered with removable and washable rubber, keeping the tablet germ-free.
