And that's not all. Here's what else is in store:

Our best just got better. The new Toughbook CF-20 boasts 17-hour battery life, upgraded processor technology and greater levels of security thanks to a Windows Hello-compliant front camera. 

Plus, all these great features come wrapped up in the action-ready body of the world’s first fully rugged detachable notebook. 



Irons. Washing machines. Cameras. We’ve come a long way since our humble beginnings in 1918.

Founded by Konosuke Matsushita, Panasonic began its story with an improved attachment plug, which allowed people to power an electric appliance from a light socket. Fast forward 100 years and we’re engineering the world’s most advanced rugged technology.

Our principle of making life easier with innovation has remained the same.




Diagnosis: Toughbook

Hospitals are indisputably stressful places to work. Pressure is high and accuracy is crucial. So what happens when a patient comes in with a critical burn or ulcer? 

Estimating the size of a burn was previously performed using various different methods such as the ‘Rule of Nines’, where the body is broken down into 9% areas. Early and accurate assessment is key to reducing skin damage, yet these techniques are often imprecise because of the variability of the human body. 

"The potential for cost savings by changing interventions earlier, reducing dressings and clinical resources and delivering better patient outcomes will be significant. Further cost savings could result from remote monitoring and diagnosis of wounds in the community.

The camera, tablet and software is simple to use, and any clinician can be trained to use it, with very little experience in burns or wound care required.”

Professor Steven Jeffery, Director of the UK’s National Institute for Health Research WoundTec Healthcare Technology Cooperative 


Up, up and away with Toughbook

easyJet has significantly improved customer boarding times thanks to a new pre-flight processing system, allowing greater flexibility – and cost savings – at departure gates.

How? Using the Toughpad FZ-F1 handheld, complete with integrated barcode reader and easyJet’s bespoke, in-house software.

Today, easyJet in Geneva uses this mobile solution to board 95% of all its flights.

“The collaboration with Panasonic has been particularly great; from answering all our questions and queries to loaning devices for the trial, and listening to feedback about specific case use."

Graham Cottrell, Business Analyst in Operations Systems at easyJet.
