Dubai Podiatry Centre Becomes the Gulf Region's First Clinic to Bring Apple iPads to the Healthcare Field

Apple has grown a whole new market with the introduction of the iPad - medical. Dubai Podiatry Centre is leading the healthcare field in implementing new technology for patient education. Using the iPad's phenomenal imaging capabilities, the clinic is using the new iPads to show detailed structure of the foot and ankle to patients, zooming in and rotating as required.

(PRWEB) May 30, 2010 -- With its ten hour battery life, Michelle Champlin, CEO and Chief Podiatrist of Dubai Podiatry Centre, thinks the iPad will replace the laptop for everyday office applications such as email, and also for checking X-ray images. Michelle will be discussing the introduction of new technologies such as the iPads as well as the application of Social Media when she is a guest speaker at the Healthcare Marketing Forum, at the Hospital Build Middle East Exhibition 2010, on 2nd June 2010 in Dubai.

(The clinic currently uses a secure wireless LAN running bespoke practice management software on laptops).

The clinic’s podiatrists already use iPhones and are familiar with the touchscreen technology and various apps on offer from Apple, so making the move to iPads has been straightforward and swift.

Michelle already envisages one significant area which she is keen to use with patients – using the high quality imaging of the iPad to show patients the biomechanical structures of their feet with the ability to zoom in to great detail, rotate 360Úto view the area from different angles. This will offer much greater advantages to patients as opposed to pointing to bones on a poster, which cannot offer different viewing angles or change to show how different structures, such as muscles, bones and tendons interact. Michelle says “We’re so excited about using the iPads with our patients, as it’s crucial that patients understand fully what the problem is and how we can treat it. The iPads literally offer us a new dimension for educating patients about the structure of their feet, in a user friendly way.

Michelle would also like to see some Podiatry specific software and apps being developed – “The range of Apple apps on offer already to the medical field is impressive and growing every week. I may just need to dedicate some time to develop an app particularly for the Podiatry field focusing on foot and ankle health!”

Founded in 2002 by UK trained Podiatrist Michelle Champlin, Dubai Podiatry Centre is the regional leader in foot and ankle health. The clinic offers a wide range of products and services designed to eliminate foot pain and enhance quality of life through improved foot performance. Michelle Champlin is the Inventor of Footerella™, a portable electronic device which tightens and tones women’s feet.
