Touchfire with Health Train Express


Another bold innovation (and why didn’t I think of this before?) The beauty of this is that it offers another functionality to the iPad form factor. without the burden of extra parts.  Although the iPad offers a keypad feature, users complain there is no tactile feedback which touch typists use unconsciously to type. And the addition of an external keyboard adds to more clutter.

This flexible plastiform rubberized overlay is held in place by magnets which attack to the border of the iPad’s frontface. It gives the user tactile feedback much like a normal keyboard. It also has other features attaching it to iPads official cover.

All in all a dandy device for the  clinic, by the bedside or in the hospital.
