A Medgadget editor has tested the device for two weeks doing regular clinical work in the hospital and in the OR, and overall he was very pleased with the device. The case is easy to open and close. After a couple of inadvertent falls, the iPad has survived” medGadget (2016).

medGadget report “FlipPad is a product of a Chelmsford, Essex, UK-based company called FutureNova. The case is designed to enclose iPad Air 2 & the 9.7″ iPad Pro, and provide all sorts of fluid and chemical protections for these tablets when clinicians, caregivers, company reps and others use them around patients.

Contact precautions and infection control work both ways: you don’t want your device to get contaminated in a messy environment, and you don’t want it to become a focus of infection in a total joint replacement operating room. Yet, when you bring your device home, you definitely don’t want a one year old licking MRSA off the iPad screen. It’s better to keep the iPad behind a wall of protection, and that’s what the company believes it offers with the FlipPad. They say the FlipPad provides water and chemical resistance, drop protection, and, thanks to an antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass Screen embedded with ionic silver, the device provides antimicrobial resistance. Because the silver ions are permanently embedded into the screen, the effect lasts throughout the lifetime of the device.

After a couple of inadvertent falls, the iPad has survived. The case feels very rugged, and once the device is positioned inside, it’s either surrounded by empty space or securely in contact with a very thick and sturdy looking plastic reinforced by rubber and foam.”
