smartSTIK-MD USB drive
The new bioMETRX smartSTIK-MD is designed for hopsitals and doctor's offices, where sending medical information digitally can pose a threat to privacy. Like some other secure USB drives, doctors and patients must first scan their fingerprints with the embedded reader before they can load or download information. The MD comes bundled with various medical applications, and is ready to accept records, X-rays, test results, prescriptions and more. The drive will begin initial sales in 2007 for the cost of $65 per unit.
