Zargis Cleared as Apple iPhone Developer; Medical Applications for Smartphones Planned

STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Zargis Medical Corp., a subsidiary of Speedus Corp. (NASDAQ: SPDE) and a spin-off from Siemens Corporate Research (NYSE: SI), today announced that is has been cleared as an Apple((R)) iPhone((R)) developer and has begun development of medical diagnostic support software and related peripherals for the iPhone and other leading smartphones.

Zargis has identified the handheld environment as a logical delivery platform for its telemedicine and diagnostic software initiatives, and with its team of experienced developer's plans to leverage the smartphone platform as a mobile hub between medical device peripherals and computer-aided diagnostic support located either locally or remotely.

A recent report released by Manhattan Research stated that 64% of doctors, more than double the number eight years ago, own smartphones, and that this figure will increase to 81% penetration in 2012. However, despite the rapid adoption of the iPhone and other smartphones by physicians, currently available healthcare applications for these devices are generally limited to medical reference libraries, educational tools and applications designed to manage patient medical records.

"The future of healthcare delivery is about connectivity and mobility. Zargis' expertise in computer-aided auscultation and our advanced medical software platform positions us perfectly to create diagnostic software and peripherals that are a natural fit for smartphones. We intend to improve healthcare efficiency by helping clinicians bring medical technology to the patient, rather than the other way around," stated Zargis CEO John Kallassy.
