My initial thoughts for the Tinke was for general use i.e. to check my stats as I increasingly get fitter, but also for my wife to use at her work place, as a DIV 1 Aged Care Nurse - on the patients - problem is though, I've been advised they (the elderly) find it more difficult to keep a steady thumb as the younger people do, and for her to have them steadily place there thumb on the pad for 60 seconds whilst also partially supporting the iPhone - is near impossible for the majority of them - solution, simple - male 30 pin (to iPhone) to female 30 pin (to Tinke device) sync cable extension lead and have patient press finger on just the device - I myself struggle some times to hold a constant pressure on the plate and have found the slightest bump to the iPhone can give me the old 'oops'....etc. etc.' just at the end of the reading - just to have to start the reading over again. Having the Tinke situated apart from the iPhone will make it much easier for the user.
Perhaps it could be just a small retractable lead.
I'm sure I'll get a few "likes" from other Beta testers that it is slightly awkward to maintain constant pressure on the pad whilst holding the iPhone - for 60 seconds, it's a bit like resitance training for your thumb.....
