This paper provides a categorical equivalence between two types of quantum structures. One is a complete orthomodular lattice, which is used for reasoning about testable properties of a quantum system. The other is an orthomodular dynamic algebra, which is a quantale used for reasoning about quantum actions. The result extends to more restrictive lattices than orthomodular lattices, and includes Hilbert lattices of closed subspaces of a Hilbert space. These other lattice structures have connections to a wide range of different quantum structures; hence our equivalence establishes a categorical connection between quantales and a great variety of quantum structures.
