Las Vegas – February 16, 2012 – Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, will be showcasing a range of business solutions at HIMSS12. Included in the lineup are the new AirStrap Med and AirStrap Lite cases, both designed to help medical personnel easy access to their iPads while caring for patients.Spyglass Consulting Group’s new report, “Point of Care Computing for Physicians 2012,” reveals 80 percent of physicians surveyed believe that the iPad will be a positive player in health care in the future, particularly as software developers optimize their clinical applications for use on the iPad. Spyglass conducted phone interviews with more than 100 doctors in acute and ambulatory care in the United States from July to October 2011.Additionally, a 2011 poll of more than 5,000 doctors conducted by the Physicians Consulting Network found that 27 percent of primary care and specialty physicians own an iPad or similar device and already use it on the job — a rate five times higher than the general population.
“Our goal in any of our healthcare products is to keep the focus on patient care and let the technology stay out of the way until it’s needed,” says J. Curtis, Griffin’s Director of B2B Product Development. “AirStrap Med is the lightest, most versatile case we’ve ever designed, and it allows full control of the iPad’s amazing Multi-Touch screen even while wearing latex or nitrile gloves.”
AirStrap Med and AirStrap Lite allow doctors and nurses to easily hold an iPad in one hand while simultaneously using it to view medical applications, records, x-rays and more. AirStrap Med was developed in collaboration with physicians and nurses to adapt the convenience of Griffin’s original AirStrap case to the demanding needs of the healthcare environment.
AirStrap Med for iPad 2 is constructed as a combination of ABS and TPE, with a lightweight, two-piece frame that closes securely around the tablet, sealing it from moisture and fluids. An adjustable shoulder strap keeps the iPad within easy reach and the case’s non-porous, non-slip surfaces are fully sanitizeable with industry-standard cleaning and sterilization products. AirStrap Med will be available for $89.99 starting in April.
