Change in application for a device

How can I protect myself against thievery when approaching a manufacturer.  My idea is to get the existing manufacturer of a device, to market and sell their device for use in another field  that it was not originally intended.  (Example.  Currently used in the medical field.... Could be applied to the airlines,  with only slight changes necessary to the device Cool.)

Remember, you can't stop thievery, but you may be able to punish it.
The best way to protect yourself would be to have a patent application on file before entering into discussions.  Or, you could have an appropriate NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).
