Medelita® Announces Initiative to Add iPad Accessibility to Lab Coat Line

San Clemente, California (PRWEB) August 30, 2011 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 August 30th, Medelita announced an initiative to introduce iPad 2 compatibility to their line of popular lab coats by the end of 2011. 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. In Emergency Physicians Monthly, Nicholas Genes, MD, PhD recently wrote an article examining how the iPad is changing the way that physicians work in emergency medicine. "The nature of emergency medicine – the speed at which we have to work, the interruptions, the need for information, has forced some unfortunate compromises," stated Genes, "I think the iPad can liberate doctors from the desk-based tyranny of ED information systems and the shortcomings of the paper chart." Far from confined to Emergency Medicine, iPads are becoming popular throughout the medical industry. From diagnostic encyclopedias and electronic medical records to hospital applications and test results available at their fingertips, the medical community is utilizing these mobile technologies across the board to learn new skills, provide better patient care, and improve the efficiency of every aspect of the medical profession. In addition, iPads allows doctors to easily bridge the gap between physician and patient understanding - having access to information in a visual format assists physicians with the often challenging task of communicating surgery, anatomy, and advanced medical information with patients. "During encounters, we’ll use iPads to tap on elements of the history or exam in, and enter orders – all very quickly at the bedside. These tablets will help us go over images and lab results with patients, and let us review diagnoses and instructions," explained Nicholas Genes, MD, PhD. After eight years working in Emergency Medicine, Physician Assistant, Lara Manchik, PA-C, founded Medelita to address an urgent need in the healthcare industry for functional, performance-based lab coats and scrubs of superior quality, with ergonomic fit, excellent durability, and professional styling. More than simply designer-quality medical apparel, Medelita has ensured that even their fabric works overtime, along-side their busy and dedicated customers. Medelita lab coats are made from breathable 100% cotton fabric, treated with DuPont™ Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector. At the forefront of technological advancement, Medelita is the first medical apparel manufacturer to use this innovative nanotechnology to protect lab coats from fluid, soil, and stains - including blood. Currently, Medelita offers select styles and sizes that do fit an iPad 2. Dedicated to remaining on the cutting edge of the convergence of technology in medicine, Medelita is committed to expanding this feature to all lab coats sizes in their most popular men's and women's styles.
