New QUAN iPad Accessory Could Revolutionize Mobile Medical Testing
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cutting-edge technology company Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) announced today that it has begun development on an innovative new accessory for the Apple (NAS: AAPL) iPad that could potentially revolutionize mobile medical testing.
The MediCase is envisioned to be a unique, protective case for the iPad that will contain built-in essential medical testing capabilities, including meters for body temperature, blood pressure, pulse, blood oxygen levels, blood sugar levels and more. Quantum has begun developing the support software necessary to allow the results to be collected by anyone with an iPad and stored or transmitted to a physician.
The MediCase is the first product planned in a series of lifestyle enhancement products that will enable older consumers and specific industries to better utilize new technologies such as the iPad, from aging business professionals to underserved industries and beyond.
The global market for iPad accessories is growing at an astonishing rate due to the device's paradigm-shifting popularity. Currently, there are more than 117 million iPad owners worldwide, and the market for accessories is worth $2.3 billion and climbing.
Quantum is working hard to capitalize on that growth. Earlier this year, the company signed a joint venture agreement with A Plus Technologies to develop and market a new line of electronic lifestyle enhancement technologies, including iPad accessories.
