San Clemente, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2012 Medelita®, a high-quality performance lab coat and scrubs manufacturer for both men and women, is a company driven by forward thinking and technological advancement. On January 1st, Medelita introduced iPad compatibility to their line of popular lab coats. A company committed to meeting the needs of medical professionals, this initiative is a direct response to the growing use of iPads in the healthcare industry. iPads accounted for 7% of recent Christmas Day sales, and sales from mobile devices increased to 14.4% - a 172.9% boost over 5.3% on Christmas Day 2010. It is clear that iPads are gaining momentum in all sectors of society, and healthcare is no exception. Apple has even appointed a dedicated medical market manager, Afshad Mistri, who was profiled in a recent Wired article. Mistri is responsible for creating the iTunes store section for health care apps, organizing conferences on how to use the iPad in medicine, and frequently visiting hospitals and universities to establish iPad pilot programs. For many doctors, the iPad can save a lot time every day that is usually spent finding a computer workstation or collecting image printouts. Even the government has recognized the importance of this timesaving technology, and The U.S. Veteran’s Administration is planning a National Mobile Device Management (MDM) Solution that would introduce 100,000 tablets in their 152-hospital network in the near future. As iPads continue to grow as a medical tool, Medelita is dedicated to remaining on the cutting edge of this convergence of technology in medicine. Medelita now offers a large selection of popular lab coat styles and sizes that fit an iPad to accommodate this growing trend of tablet users in the healthcare profession. The improved lab coat designs allow doctors, clinicians, and other medical professionals to keep their iPad comfortably and securely in their lab coat. The new iPad pockets are reinforced along the seam and designed to offer easy access to a tablet while ensuring it remains snugly protected - no more bumping, jostling, or falling out during a demanding shift. At Medelita, product development is fueled by the evolving needs of the customer, and the launch of iPad-compatible lab coats continues a tradition of manufacturing high quality, functional and innovative garments. About Medelita Medelita® is redefining the way that healthcare professionals think about their lab coats, uniforms and scrubs by offering the highest quality, best fitting, and most comfortable medical garments available.
