Griffin Announces Availability of AirStrap Med, A Case for iPad, Designed with Input from Medical Professionals
Easily hold an iPad in one hand while using it to view medical records, apps, x-rays and more
Nashville, TN – June 12, 2012 – Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, is excited to announce a new addition to their Business Solutions lineup: AirStrap Med, a sanitizable case for iPad designed for easy use by medical personnel while caring for patients.
Spyglass Consulting Group’s new report, “Point of Care Computing for Physicians 2012," reveals that 80 percent of physicians surveyed believe that Apple’s iPad tablet will be a positive player in healthcare 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.
“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,” said J. Curtis, Griffin’s Director of B2B Product Development. “We aim to help healthcare professionals focus on patient care while implementing the latest technology.”
Compatible with iPad 2 and the new 3rd generation iPad, AirStrap Med allows doctors and nurses to easily hold an iPad in one hand while they use it to view medical records, apps, 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 and specialized needs of the healthcare environment.
A combination of ABS and TPE plastics, AirStrap Med is constructed as a lightweight, two-piece frame with built-in screen shield that closes securely around the tablet, sealing it, front, back, sides, and touchscreen, from moisture and fluids. An adjustable shoulder strap allows users to carry the iPad with their hands free for other tasks. The case’s non-porous, non-slip surfaces are fully sanitizable with industry-standard cleaning and sterilization products. Both shoulder strap and hand strap are detachable for easy cleaning, and can be adjusted to accommodate right- and left-handed users.
The AirStrap Med is available now for $89.99 at store.griffintechnology.com/airstrap-med-case.
