RevitaMed Unit of LymphaCare Meets Sales Goals by Offering an Anodyne (Pain Relief) Infrared Therapy Product with Revitamed's Boot Pads

Anodyne is defined in the dictionary as "to alleviate pain". RevitaMed's Infrared Therapy system has been doing just that for hundreds of neuropathy and chronic pain patients, while helping the LymphaCare staff meet its target.

(PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- LymphaCare Revitamed division has seen a steady increase in sales of both patient and clinical models of the RevitaMed Infrared Therapy system.


Patients and therapists that have seen or used the RevitaMed System for treating chronic pain and circulation problems tend to be surprised and impressed. Most have been unaware that there was any competition or alternative to the more well known brand name of Anodyne® Therapy.

Recently a physical therapy clinic in Oregon that was evaluating an Anodyne® Therapy system in their facility, decided to purchase the RevitaMed System based only on the information provided by LymphaCare and their knowledgeable consultants without even an evaluation. That clinic has since purchased a second RevitaMed Professional Sysem. http://www.revita-med.com

RevitaMed’s Professional system tends to price out about 20%-30% less than the Anodyne® Therapy Pro unit, Physical and Occupational Therapists love the size of the pads, especially the unique boot pads, which cover the entire foot. The Oregon clinic is seeing excellent outcomes for their neuropathy patients. They are also utilizing the large pads to treat large surface areas of the back and leg. They have also been successfully treating the painful condition of Shingles.

Patients have also been discovering why RevitaMed works so well. The Anodyne ® Therapy system is priced at $2995.00 for a new home system. RevitaMed is well over 50% less depending on the pad combination. Many patients that don’t qualify under their insurance, nor have the time to go to physical therapy are thrilled to buy a RevitaMed at a more reasonable price with much larger more powerful infrared pads.

Patients have pointed out that the equine or Equilight (http://www.equilight.com/Products.htm) horse product affiliate of Anodyne ® Therapy, sells the same $29950.00 patient home unit for just $2395.00 on the Equilight.com website That’s a $600.00 difference for what is essentially the same product! This has been making patient's ave some serious questions.

The RevitaMed Infrared Therapy consultants at LymphaCare have comforted customers by addressing the questions and concerns for those evaluating Infrared treatment systems. RevitaMed plans on being around for many years. They are in the process of publishing several clinical studies, and enhancing their current product line to address customer needs and requests.

LymphaCare has been able to meet their sales goals, by educating people on the product differences, excellent pricing, reimbursement issues, and their 30 day money back guarantees for neuropathy patients.

Diabetes, foot pain, neuropathy, and finding a great product as a fair price: all of those play The neuropathy population has many of those things, and any patients with these symptoms who are cost sensitive and demand state of the art technology would be good candidates for the RevitaMed. One LymphaCare employee states, “ it's like getting the Lexus model for the price of a Chevy". The RevitaMed Therapy System does not require a prescription.

RevitaMed products can be found by calling LymphaCare at 800-288-1801.

NuSil Technology Introduces Fast-Curing Inks for Healthcare

NuSil Technology -- a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone-based materials for healthcare, aerospace, electronics and photonics -- announces the addition of MED-6613-2, a fast-curing black ink, to its line of silicone inks.

Carpinteria, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- NuSil Technology - a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone-based materials for healthcare, aerospace, electronics and photonics - announces the addition of MED-6613-2, a fast-curing black ink, to its line of silicone inks.

Advanced Biological Laboratories SA (ABL, S.A) Licenses Stanford HIV Resistance Interpretation Algorithm - Adds to Viroscore Suite Genetic Sequence Database and Analysis Engine

ABL to integrate the Stanford Algorithm with the 5 algorithms currently used in its "global resistance interpretation" report offered in the ViroScore Suite Diagnostic Product.

Topsfield, MA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 30, 2022 -- ABL, SA (A Luxembourg Company) with TherapyEdge Inc. (Durham, NC) today announced it had signed a license agreement to use the Stanford University HIVdb resistance interpretation algorithm in their ViroScorer Report.

The ViroScorer HIV report is part of the ViroScore Suite which provides decision support to HIV doctors by helping them select the best therapy for an HIV patient based on the past and current resistance to HIV drugs. The report has picked up a lot of support from opinion leaders in HIV clinical research as it offers a global interpretation based on research from six leading research centers across the world.

Jean-Claude Schmit, a leading HIV resistance researcher in Europe and the Clinical Director of the Virology Lab at Centre Hospital de Luxembourg, the author of one of the European algorithms in the report, has praised the ABL team for broadening the product line. "The ViroScore Test and the Suite of tools for individual patient treatment and longitudinal research are now unmatched in the Field. Stanford has some of the best researchers in the world and a large pool of genetic sequence data to create and refine their algorithm."

The Stanford Algorithm will round out the resistance interpretation for ABL customers across the globe and in particular in the US where ABL is expanding. Chairman of the board of ABL, Arsene Kronshagen said that, "this algorithm will help us expand in the Americas because it is widely accepted as the standard for HIV resistance interpretation in the region."

ABL sells the resistance interpretation platform to diagnostic companies, HIV researchers and individual physicians treating HIV. The ViroScore Suite of tools includes an enterprise class database for the storage of genetic sequence data, analysis tools for reporting on the relationships between clinical outcomes and virus mutations, phylogenetic analysis of sequence groups and numerous tools to assist the physicians and researchers in optimizing the use of complex genetic data.

ABL will also use the Stanford algorithm in the "ViroScore-PLUS" Report which provides resistance interpretation based on the patients current and past resistance history. Ronan Boulme, VP of Research and Development added, "Our clinical partners have requested we take into account the historic resistance profile of the patient, even if some mutations were not currently present due to lack of drug pressure. We are proud to announce this functionality when more and more governments and insurance agencies are recognizing the value of genotype testing and reimbursing for its cost."

ABL includes the Stanford Algorithm in version 6.2 of the ViroScore Suite released March 28th and is offering upgrades to existing customers in over 36 countries.

To license the ABL products, to learn about our company or to start a research partnership, please visit www.ablsa.com. ABL is currently seeking a distribution partner for their technologies in the North American region.

(PRWEB) March 30, 2022 -- Physician Micro Systems, Inc. (PMSI), the creator of Practice Partner electronic health records (EHR), practice management, and computerized physician order entry (CPOE) software, and Primetime Medical Software, Inc., maker of the Instant Medical History patient interview application, today announced that they have integrated Instant Medical History with Practice Partner Patient Records.

Using Instant Medical History, a patient can enter his or her complete present illness, review of systems, and medical history information prior to the patient visit – either over the web or using a waiting room kiosk. Instant Medical History summarizes this information and automatically begins a progress note in the patient chart in Practice Partner Patient Records. The physician can then open the patient’s electronic health record, review the patient-entered information, and complete the documentation for the encounter.

By enabling the direct flow of patient-entered information into the electronic health record, the integration of Instant Medical History with Practice Partner will help to reduce clinician data entry, provide more accurate documentation, and improve the focus and efficiency of the patient encounter.

“Instant Medical History offers Practice Partner customers a tool to improve the clinical documentation process and facilitate better physician-patient communication. This partnership furthers our mission to help physicians improve productivity and quality of care,” said Andrew Ury, M.D., founder and president of PMSI.

"Practice Partner customers have long seen PMSI as a leading provider of EHR technology," said Matthew Ferrante, CEO, Primetime Medical Software. "We are delighted to extend our technology to this group of innovative physicians."

Taking Temperature Doesn't Get Any Easier Than This

Technology seems to have solved the age-old problem of temperature measurement with the development of the new Forehead Thermometer that uses advanced infrared technology.
Technology seems to have solved the age-old problem of temperature measurement with the development of the new Forehead Thermometer that uses advanced infrared technology.


Taking temperature doesn't get any easier than this.

Sooner or later every child gets sick and has a fever. When this occurs, it can be very helpful to know exactly what the child’s temperature is. You want to know whether there is only a slight fever or if the fever is possibly at a dangerous level that requires urgent medical attention. Over time, you then also want to know if the fever is going up or down with treatment.

But taking an accurate temperature has long been a problem for parents. Until now.

Digital thermometers that parents use to take the temperature under the arm have always been popular, but their biggest disadvantage is that they take so long to register a reading. It is not always easy to hold a thermometer under a child’s arm for a minute or two when the child is sick, distressed and possibly wriggling around.

Ear thermometers overcome this problem by recording the temperature within a couple of seconds. But they have one major disadvantage. Many parents report huge difficulty using them, especially on infants. Parents often state that if they take the temperature more than once, they get very different results each time. This is usually because it can be difficult to get the probe deep enough into the child’s ear to record an accurate reading. As such, many parents find ear thermometers inaccurate and unreliable.

But technology seems to have solved the age-old problem of temperature measurement with the development of the new Forehead Thermometer that uses advanced infrared technology. This amazing product measures the temperature on the child’s forehead and gives an accurate and reliable temperature reading within 2 seconds.

The Forehead Thermometer has the following major advantages over other thermometers:
- It is much easier to use than all other thermometers.
- It is much gentler on the child than oral, rectal, underarm and in-ear thermometers because it is truly non-invasive.
- It is exceptionally accurate and reliable.
- It is the most hygienic of all thermometers.
- The temperature of the patient is not only displayed on the screen but is also spoken out loud.
- Best of all, it can be reliably used on newborns, infants, children or adults.

And when you consider all of these significant advantages, in conjunction with the fact that it costs a great deal less than ear thermometers, the Forehead Thermometer is clearly an essential item for any family, especially one with small children!

Baxa Corporation Celebrates 30 Years of Product Safety and Innovation for Hospital Pharmacies

In March 1975, two entrepreneurs with experience in pharmacy sales and product development started Baxa Corporation, a medical device company focused on products that ensured patient safety. Thirty years later, the company’s first product – a dispenser dedicated to safe delivery of oral medications – is still the market leader, alongside a full line of devices and systems designed to streamline fluid drug handling, admixture and packaging activities in hospital and alternate-site pharmacies.

Englewood, CO (PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- In March 1975, two entrepreneurs with experience in pharmacy sales and product development started Baxa Corporation, a medical device company focused on products that ensured patient safety. Thirty years later, the company’s first product – a dispenser dedicated to safe delivery of oral medications – is still the market leader, alongside a full line of devices and systems designed to streamline fluid drug handling, admixture and packaging activities in hospital and alternate-site pharmacies. Baxa Corporation saw organic growth in the 1970’s and early 1980’s through the development of close relationships with key national opinion leaders and the company’s dedication to understanding the needs of hospital pharmacists, and designing products that specifically addressed those sterile compounding needs.

The company’s second decade was characterized by organic expansion through market innovation, as it launched a series of unique products, such as the Repeater™ Pump – the first designed for accurate pharmacy filling. This was followed by the introduction of the MicroMacro™ Automated Compounders, the first to combine high speed for large-volume transfer, with accuracy for micro-ingredient delivery. By the end of its second decade, Baxa has added a dual rate syringe infuser and the Exacta-Mix™ Universal Pump to its line of products supporting pharmacy efficiency.

“It’s not thirty years of achievement that is so rewarding,” states Brian Baldwin, Founder and Chairman Emeritus, “It is the fun and excitement of the journey. My dream of building a truly great business is a continuous work in progress.” Brian and co-founder Ron Baxa both remain active in the business today, complementing the leadership of Brian’s sons Greg and Jeff Baldwin.

Through its focus on state-of-the-art technology for automating sterile compounding and improving other pharmacy procedures, Baxa Corporation gained a reputation as a leader in application knowledge and product innovation. That reputation led the company’s strategic growth in the 1990’s and allowed them to partner with companies such as Abbott Laboratories (now Hospira), Samson Technologies, Fujisawa and others to enhance the value of their product offering.

“Baxa always demonstrated technical expertise,” notes Jeff Baldwin, President and COO, “but it was our focus on customers that has built the business to what it is today. Targeting an underserved market and finding ways to change their operations to improve efficiencies has helped build a base of true Baxa “fans” in hospital pharmacies.”

Today, Baxa Corporation is nearing $100 million in annual sales, with 300 employees at its Englewood, Colorado headquarters. Reaching this 30-year anniversary milestone reflects the dedication of Baxa associates and the loyalty of the company’s customers worldwide. “Our mission,” says Greg Baldwin, Baxa Chairman and CEO, “has been to build lifelong customer relationships by providing the most innovative devices and systems for handling, packaging and administering liquid medications. Our success over the past 30 years is tangible proof that we are living that mission.”

Arkansas Rottweiler Jasmine Breaks World Record with 24 pups - Canadian Pet Medicine Web Site Helps Huge Family with Donation of Medicines, Supplies

Rescue center dog's record litter of 24 pups gets support from www.universalpetmeds.com with free medicines. Shop provides high-quality, low-cost medications via internet at up to 50 percent savings.

(PRWEB) March 23, 2022 -- There’s a male dog who could be popping his buttons in South Central Arkansas these days. After all, he’s the father of a record 24 pups born to a single litter at the Critter Holler Animal Rescue in South Central Arkansas.

But, unfortunately, he’s an absentee father and won’t be there to take care of his brood, and his wife, Jasmine, who live at the Rescue. Not to worry, however, thanks to www.universalpetmeds.com, a leading internet supplier of high-quality, low-cost medicine supplies for animals, which has ‘adopted’ Jasmine and the pups through supplying free medicines and food for Jasmine and her puppies.

“Our online pet pharmacy, www.universalpetmeds.com, provides pet supplies to pet owners all over the world. Our main focus is small animal health which for the most part entails the health of dogs and cats," explains Paul Turner, marketing director for www.universalpetmeds.com.

“Charlie Campbell, who does such wonderful work with his rescue service, contacted us,” “I guess he realized that this was something extraordinary, and he needed some moral support.

”We are totally committed to preserving the health of our clients’ pets—and the welfare of animals generally-- by offering a complete line of important medications, at savings of up to 50 percent of prices in the U.S., so it was only natural that we would respond to assist the Center, Jasmine—and, of course, the 24 puppies,” Turner says.

“Another goal was to show our support for the important work that Charlie and others do in animal rescue,” Turner concluded.

Hospital Grade Cream Provides a Beauty Friendly Option to Cure Skin Cancer from Sunbeds

The topical cream, Curaderm-BEC, can eliminate skin cancer caused by sunbed use. This is welcoming news for sunbed lovers alarmed by last week's World Health Organization public warning on risks associated with sun bed use and UV in general.

(PRWEB) March 22, 2022 -- Manufacturer of Curaderm-BEC, has confirmed today the product's capacity to eliminate skin cancer from UV lights attached to sunbeds. This is welcoming news for sun bed lovers, and the multibillion dollar tanning industry who are concerned by last week's World Health Organization (WHO) public health crisis warning on UV and sunbed dangers.

UV exposure in sunbeds, like sunlight, often causes tiny red dots, known as sun spots. Spots often then evolve into larger, non melanoma BCC's or SCC's.

When diagnosed, patients are usually treated by surgical excision of the cancer. Healthy glowing tanners are often subject to skin cancer treatments that cause loss of body tissue and scarring. If the cancer appears on the face, plastic surgery may be necessary to restore a normal appearance.

Dermatologists at Royal London Hospital and nine other United Kingdom skin cancer treatment centers have now confirmed that Curaderm-BEC cream can eliminate all traces of non melanoma skin cancer. Treatment is available for damage from both indoor and outdoor UV exposure.

Curaderm-BEC consists of a patented biochemical (BEC) which is extracted from plants and a specialized cream formulation. Keratolytic and other agents in the cream soften and peel of the first layer of skin allowing the anti-cancer bio-chemical BEC to reach deep into the affected skin tissue. The cream is applied topically twice a day to BCC or SCC non melanoma skin cancer lesions or sun spots.

Clinical research and over twenty years of medical research and information on the side effects of both sun bed and outdoor tanning is available online at www.curaderm.net. This includes the product's coverage in prestigious medical publications such as Drugs of Today and Cancer letters.

Previously, the product was only available in Australia (skin cancer capital of the world) where over 50,000 people have used the product. Due to the rapid growth in new skin cancer cases, Curaderm-BEC is now available online for customers anywhere.

People who maintain a tan should regularly check for sunspots or skin cancers and, upon recognizing one, take immediate action. Immediate treatment virtually eliminates any melanoma cancer risk. Most Caucasians will have at least one skin cancer by age 60

PepperSlim Herbal Infusion Hits Big With Health Conscious Consumers and Beverage Drinkers

A small company known for big results with its hot pepper based natural herbal remedies, has created a new liquid weight loss health supplement designed to be mixed with nearly any beverage. This unusual concentrated extract of pepper, mushroom and cinnamon is said to increase metabolism and reduce appetite while promoting overall good health.

Albany, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2022 -- PepperSlim Herbal Infusion, a small company known for big results with its (hot pepper based) natural herbal remedies, has come up with a new liquid weight loss health supplement designed to be mixed with nearly any beverage, including spring water, ginger ale and green tea.

This unusual concentrated Pepper/Mushroom/Cinnamon extract is said to rev up the metabolism and reduce appetite while promoting overall good health.

PepperSlim Herbal weight loss infusion is a highly concentrated tincture derived from five varieties of gourmet mushrooms and three varieties of classic hot peppers.

The key to the sales success of this unique product appears to be the addition of organic cinnamon bark oil for an uncomparable taste that mixes particularly well with water, iced tea and ginger ale. Barely 5 drops of this strange formula mixed into a 16-ounce bottle of water provides results that are quite astounding.

The manufacturer also claims PepperSlim adds an energy boosting, thirst quenching sensation that really "kicks it up a notch" for any beverage.

“Not only does PepperSlim quench your thirst like nothing else, but it also reduces your appetite while helping to increase metabolic activity," says Wayne Perry, president of SiCap Industries, the company that produces PepperSlim. "The more you use, the more burn you feel.

"We also believe that PepperSlim helps boost the immune system, which also aids in the increased energy most people feel when they use it. The best thing is the concentrated compounds found in cinnamon and capsaicin could potentially reduce bad cholestorol and help regulate blood sugar levels. It’s a phenomenal product that deserves to be tested by the research world,” Perry said.

SiCap Industries stands for: “Science Of Capsaicin,” a well deserved moniker for the creators of the world’s first hot pepper nasal spray known as “Sinus Buster.” Released in late 2003, Sinus Buster has fast become the most talked about natural remedy, relieving a host of chronic sinus, allergy and headache conditions. Sinus Buster has more than 50,000 regular customers who first discovered this seemingly “miraculous cure” thanks to Oprah Winfrey, Howard Stern, the Wall Street Journal and the World Wide Web.

Perry, also the inventor of Sinus Buster, first discovered the medicinal power of hot peppers after appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show during the mid 1990s. Perry was a nationally recognized self defense instructor who suffered from chronic headaches. At the time, Perry was promoting his self defense video titled: "Beating The Crime Clock," in which he was sprayed with real pepper spray for the cameras.

After teaching Oprah Winfrey to use self defense pepper spray on her show, Perry quickly became known as a "Pepper Spray Expert" being sprayed by nearly every self defense spray on the market in an effort to test their effectiveness and publicize his video.

After his first Oprah appearance, Perry was deluged with requests from television stations around the country to perform live pepper spray demonstrations. Then one day while performing a live demonstration for a local television news crew, Perry was stricken with one of his debilitating headaches. He continued with the demonstration only to find out that the pepper instantly stopped his headache. Perry had never experienced one of his headaches during a live spray demonstration before, but he instantly knew he had stumbled onto something very significant.

By 2002, Perry had perfected his secret formula using several hot pepper extracts. Through trial and error experimentation, Perry realized that in order to be effective the pepper had to be delivered through the nose, and so he created "Sinus Buster" the world's first commercial hot pepper nasal spray.

Perry's formula quickly became a local hit and also proved to be much more than a mere headache equalizer. It turned out that this hot pepper formula also relieved chronic sinus and allergy conditions far beyond the scope of modern medicine. Today, Sinus Buster is known as a true medical breakthrough, and is backed by hundreds of physicians and researchers throughout the world.

In 2004, SiCap Industries and Sinus Buster got a huge boost from a small plug on the Howard Stern Radio Show. Sales boomed and calls flooded in. Next came an article in the Wall Street Journal touting Sinus Buster as the next big thing in natural medicine. Since that fateful day nearly eight months ago, Sinus Buster has become an international phenomenon with projected 2005 sales figures in the millions.

"Thanks to Howard Stern and the Journal," Perry says. "Once the ball started rolling it just continued to grow. Every month, Sinus Buster sales grow by 10% with a solid 28% growth every fiscal quarter and no extra investment as far as marketing. Most of our success is due to word of mouth and media exposure. Of course we wouldn't get that exposure if it wasn't for the fact that buster really works, and now we're building on that success with the launch of PepperSlim," says Perry.

With the official launch of SiCap’s new PepperSlim infusion, the company expects to become the world’s authority on natural metabolic health. SiCap officials say PepperSlim is perhaps the world’s first "true natural health tonic" that reduces overactive appetites while increasing metabolic activity.

Moreover, this unique formula is also potentially beneficial to the immune system through its’ high content of Polysaccharides and other compounds derived from the combination of mushrooms used in the base extract. Most importantly, SiCap officials point out that the combination of Cinnamon and Capsaicin could aide in reducing high cholesterol and high blood sugar.

There are many studies supporting SiCap's claims about mushrooms, capsaicin and cinnamon. In fact, two recent studies concerning cinnamon showed it to be beneficial for controlling Type 2 Diabetes, and for reducing high cholesterol levels.

One study by the U.S. Department Of Agriculture (USDA) showed that as little as one gram a day of cinnamon (one quarter of a teaspoon twice daily) can lower blood sugar by an average of 18 to 29 percent, triglycerides (fatty acids in the blood) by 23 to 30 percent, LDL or “bad” cholesterol by 7 to 27 percent and total cholesterol by 12 to 26 percent.

Furthermore, Capsaicin (the active chemical in hot peppers), has been proven to increase blood flow and help regulate blood pressure while also reducing appetite. Other studies also show medicinal mushrooms to be potential cancer fighters with super immune boosting power.

“We took everything we’ve learned from working with the sinus buster nasal formula to create a pepper supplement that could be taken orally. The result has been astounding. PepperSlim is so concentrated that only as few drops in a bottle of water or iced tea is equivalent to eating nearly an eighth of a pound of hot peppers and mushrooms. The secret to our Pepperslim base is our exclusive peppershroom extract. We start with creating an extract made from fresh Shiitake, Maitake, Reishi and Oyster Mushrooms mixed with Habanero, Jalapeno and Cayenne peppers infused in a natural very expensive 160 proof vodka. After the brewing process has worked for at least 30 days, we add Oleoresin Capsicum, organic Green Tea extract and organic Cinnamon Bark oil to the mix. It takes nearly two months from start to finish to produce one batch of the pepperslim base extract,” explains Perry.

The result is a concentrated herbal infusion that delivers seemingly instant results. This thirst quenching infusion adds a semi-hot (peppery -- cinnamon) flavor and aroma to nearly any beverage. Within the first minute of drinking PepperSlim, the company claims your appetite will be effectively reduced. Furthermore, SiCap officials say PepperSlim also increases metabolic activity and overall energy levels in a noticable way when taken as directed.

“Beyond the basics of weight control and healthy blood flow, we believe PepperSlim could also prove to be a natural fortifier for the immune system," he says. "Our hope is that just like with Sinus Buster, researchers will begin to study the potential of peppers and mushrooms ingested in concentrated forms through tinctures.

"There are a few revolutionary drugs available right now that include compounds found in mushrooms. It’s also widely believed by researchers that the low rates of intestinal and colon cancer in South America are directly related to a diet that’s heavy in Capsaicin, the key ingredient in hot peppers. We know it helps to boost the metabolism and it’s excellent for preventing blood clots that can lead to strokes and heart attacks,” says Perry.

When SiCap first introduced PepperSlim this past January, the product took off quickly thanks to a constant stream of visitors at SiCap’s main website (www.sinusbuster.com). Now barely three months after its’ initial launch, PepperSlim is selling in the thousands, and repeat customers are already booming. SiCap has testimonials from customers around the world, and many are using PepperSlim in more than just simple water.

“A lot of our customers are giving us specific feedback concerning the use of PepperSlim in beverages. The biggest winners are Canada Dry Ginger Ale, Seven Up, Aquafina water, Diet Coke and Green Tea. Especially Snapple Green tea with lime and Honest Tea Green Dragon. PepperSlim really does taste great. It gives a mild cinnamon taste to any beverage, but it also has that pepper heat sensation. The more drops you put in a beverage, the more heat sensation you get, but the cinnamon levels out quickly without overpowering the taste so it's the perfect addition to all kinds of drinks -- even martinis," jokes Perry.

Although SiCap officially recommends adding 3-7 drops of PepperSlim to a 16 ounce bottle of water, it seems customers are continuing to find new combinations on an almost daily basis.

Perry says the best thing about PepperSlim is that it won't overpower the taste of any liquid. It simply adds to the overall bouquet. So the amount is up to the user based on his or her tastes. SiCap also plans on seeking out a beverage manufacturer interested in adding PepperSlim to one of their bottled drinks sometime before summer.

"We're thinking a venture deal with a quality beverage company could be interesting and profitable. We may even have our own brand private labeled, but I'd personally rather hook up with a manufacturer who already has brand recognition and launch the product that way," says Perry.

To find out more about PepperSlim Weight Loss Infusion or Sinus Buster, visit the main SiCap website at (www.sinusbuster.com). Samples and information packets are available for qualified media and medical personnel upon official request.

Fighting Off The Killer Flu: Innovative Advances in Immune Health May Save You!

Dr. Nancy Cox, Chief Influenza Scientist at the US Centers for Disease Control stated, “The ‘very frightening’ outbreak of virulent Bird Flu in Asia could lead to the most devastating human pandemic in history.” Klaus Stohr, Global Influenza Co-Coordinator of the World Health Organization (WHO), warns “the planet is overdue for a killer flu outbreak.”

(PRWEB) March 21, 2022 -- Dr. Nancy Cox, Chief Influenza Scientist at the US Centers for Disease Control stated, “The ‘very frightening’ outbreak of virulent Bird Flu in Asia could lead to the most devastating human pandemic in history.” Klaus Stohr, Global Influenza Co-Coordinator of the World Health Organization (WHO), warns “the planet is overdue for a killer flu outbreak.”

With alarming frequency, we are being warned about the threat posed by the “Bird Flu.” According to the WHO, this lethal H5N1 avian influenza has decimated poultry populations in East and South-East Asia. The poultry infection may create opportunities for a new influenza virus strain to spread easily among humans. The world is unprepared for such an event.

Vaccination, our primary defense, helps protect against the next flu season but not against unexpected strains. In fact, manufacturers have been wrong about the “up and coming” strains for the past three years.

Stohr said a dozen countries, led by Australia, Canada, France, the US and Sweden, bought stockpiles of Roche’s antiviral drug, Tamiflu®, Tamiflu® acts as a prophylactic and is also indicated for treatment of influenza infection in adults who have been symptomatic for no more than two days but is untested against any new flu pandemic strains. Of course, as with any engineered drug, side effects can be problematic. And the effects of Tamiflu® on children under 18 and pregnant women have not yet been determined.

So how can we as individuals protect ourselves? Strengthening the immune system is imperative. The truth is our first recourse should be the medicinal properties nature offers, and millions already take supplements. But what is not widely understood is that the beneficial nutrients are either destroyed by the acids in the stomach or the indigestible caplet/capsule containing the nutrients passes through the body intact.

Fortunately, there is a solution. Cape Cod Biolab Corporation (CAPE COD) developed and patented a revolutionary advancement called BIO-SHIELD®. Originally, BIO-SHIELD® was developed to overcome the degradation of the natural cranberry bio-activates as they pass through the stomach. In clinical tests, this supplement, CRAN-MAX®, reduced the occurrence and duration of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) in patients by 50% to 90%. Released in 1997, CRAN-MAX® is now recommended by many doctors to maintain urinary tract health.

BIO-SHIELD is a very exciting innovation with far-reaching implications. CAPE COD introduced ANTI-MAX®, formulated by Bio-Chemist, MD, Tom Hesslelink. ANTI-MAX® utilizes the BIO-SHIELD® technology to successfully deliver a combination of all-natural, selected anti-oxidants which boost the immune system. Natural ingredients include ELDER-MAX®, an elderberry fruit compound with anti-viral activities, GINGER-MAX®, a ginger oil compound with anti-inflammatory and anti-emetic activities, GREEN-MAX®, a green tea extract with anti-microbial, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory activities, and BLACK-MAX®, Nigella sativa oil with anti-histamine and anti-carcinogen activities. Thus the name “ANTI-MAX®.” These natural herbs, oils and fruit strengthen the immune system which greatly enhances your body’s ability to fight off infection and illness, including influenza.

Selected SARS patients in the Toronto, Canada outbreak, voluntarily took ANTI-MAX® and recovered significantly faster than those using traditional medicines alone. This is a very exciting development, and formal clinical trials are pending.

Dr. Rose practices ophthalmology in Los Angeles and is president of the Rose Eye Medical Group. He is on the Life Extension Foundation (www.lef.org) Medical Advisory Board and the staffs of Pacific Alliance Medical Center in Los Angeles and other area hospitals.

Baxa Introduces Four New Microfuse Infusion System Administration Sets

Baxa Corporation announces the addition of four specialty administration sets to the MicroFuse® Syringe Infusion System line. These new sets incorporate a T-site for the convenient administration of coronary vasodilators during myocardial perfusion imaging. Their design resulted from customer feedback on safety and ease of administration for this specialty cardiac application.

Englewood, CO (PRWEB) March 18, 2022 -- Baxa Corporation announces the addition of four specialty administration sets to the MicroFuse® Syringe Infusion System line. These new sets incorporate a T-site for the convenient administration of coronary vasodilators during myocardial perfusion imaging. Their design resulted from customer feedback on safety and ease of administration for this specialty cardiac application.

The new MicroFuse Administration Sets feature an integrated, T-site injection port close to the set outlet. This easy-access port facilitates the addition of a secondary medication during cardiac monitoring procedures, minimizing the opportunity for medication error or the introduction of touch contamination. Prior to their release, the available selection of administration sets was limited. The sets offer needleless ports and are available in several convenient lengths to accommodate different clinical practices.

“Baxa has offered a specialty infuser for vasodilation procedures for many years,” explains Mark Thrasher, Market Manager for IV administration products. “The new sets were developed from discussions with cardiac clinics and their technicians. Providers had very specific input on set length, connector types, and specific configurations. They made it easy to respond with products that addressed specific needs.”

The MicroFuse Rapid Rate Infuser is the most popular device for simple, cost-effective administration of adenosine. The new sets complement Baxa Corporation’s existing product line for pharmacologic stress imaging. MicroFuse Administration Sets have a low prime volume to minimize drug waste. Their integrated Y and T connectors make them safer and more efficient than competitive sets used for this application.

Baxa developed the MicroFuse Rapid Rate Infuser specifically for rapid infusion of adenosine during pharmacologic imaging procedures. To accommodate this specialty application, MicroFuse Rapid Rate Infusers deliver a full syringe dose over approximately six or eight minutes, depending on physician requirements.

FDA Approved Temodar

The U.S Food and Drug Administration's approval of Temodar as a treatment for people newly diagnosed with glioblastoma recognizes the importance of hope. These reports signify movement in the treatment of one of the most aggressive brain tumors.

(PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- The U.S Food and Drug Administration’s approval of Temodar as a treatment for people newly diagnosed with glioblastoma recognizes the importance of hope. A study published by Roger Stupp, MD, for the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) in last week’s New England Journal of Medicine found that adding Temodar to radiation therapy increased survival rates to 26.5% at two years (from 10.4 % with radiation alone). In an equally compelling report also published in the same journal, studies at the University Hospital of Lausanne indicate the interaction between this drug and a biologic marker called MGMT may provide important information for researchers. These reports signify movement in the treatment of one of the most aggressive brain tumors.

Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common of the primary malignant brain tumors, and is also one of the most difficult tumors to treat effectively. Each year, approximately 20% of all reported brain tumors are glioblastoma. Generally found in people forty through sixty years old, glioblastoma occurs slightly more often in males than females. This tumor tends to be found in the cerebral hemispheres of the brain that control memory, thinking abilities, personality, and movement.

The American Brain Tumor Association offers information about glioblastoma multiforme and Temodar; about other types of brain tumors and their treatments; about standard therapies as well as research treatments; and about support options for brain tumor families seeking help in living with the diagnosis of a brain tumor. Call us at 800-886-2282, or visit our web site at www.abta.org
Physicians available for interviews.

This week’s headlines share our hope… the hope that new knowledge brings to the quality of lives of brain tumor patients around the globe.

New Open MRI Matches Innovative Technology with Patient Comfort and Ease

New technology spares patients the claustrophobia of conventional MRI. This system now available in the Baton Rouge area at The Pain Treatment Center and First Choice Surgery Center.

Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) March 14, 2022 -- For people who fear small, enclosed spaces, the MRI diagnostic test can be their worst nightmare. The test can be long, and lying in an enclosed chamber is tasking on any patient.

Thanks to the new MRI technology available at The Pain Treatment Center and First Choice Surgery Center, the MRI process just got easier. Installed in December 2004, the high performance premium “open” Hitachi Airis II MRI system offers patients a less threatening environment, allowing them to rest easier during testing. For some patients, it means the difference between sedation and no sedation.

The demand for “open” MRI systems and services over the conventional “closed” MRI systems by patients and physicians has been increasing dramatically during the past few years. Claustrophobia, size and weight of the patient or issues related to patient comfort are the contributing factors.

“Patients and their referring physicians will be happy to know the open MRI is not only more comfortable for patients, it also delivers more powerful, faster results,” said Arnold Feldman, M.D., medical director of the Pain Treatment Centers of Baton Rouge and Natchez and the First Choice Surgery Center. “This particular system offers award-winning gantry design, combined with high-speed gradients and state-of-the-art computer and magnetic technology. In short, patients are receiving the best technology available in a more comfortable environment and convenient location.”

MRI or magnetic resonance imaging provides an unparalleled view inside the human body without the use of X-rays. The level of detail shown through MRI is extraordinary compared with any other imaging modality. MRI is the method of choice for the diagnosis of many types of injuries and conditions because of the incredible ability to tailor the exam to the particular medical diagnosis. Although it has been available for the last two decades, MRI has seen tremendous improvements over the past few years with continued advances in technology. “Better diagnosis of the problem translates to improved treatment faster,” said Feldman. “It’s a win-win for patients and their families. For some patients, the open MRI means no sedation needed and quicker results without the anxiety factor.”

Pain Treatment Center Patients Relieved from a Lifetime of Pain with the FDA Approved 'Pain Pump'

'Pain Pump' targets site of pain and allows more relief to patients. Arnold Feldman, M.D. of the Pain Treatment Centers of Baton Rouge and Natchez is now performing this procedure on a limited release basis.

Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) March 12, 2022 -- Arnold Feldman, M.D., of The Pain Treatment Center of Baton Rouge has been using the Medtronic SynchroMed II implantable pump since April 2004, as part of Medtronic’s limited market release, during the recent FDA study. The pump proved itself to be a life altering option for patients with chronic pain, many with a history of unsuccessful surgeries and procedures. Outcomes have been excellent, and for patient Heather Englehart, the result is relief from two decades of chronic pain.

In 1982, Englehart was 104 lbs of strength and resolve. Her job on a horse farm required her to lift hay bails that weighed almost as much as she did. She developed a shooting pain in her back, but ignored it as long as she could. Soon she found herself in complete, constant pain. After two failed back surgeries, she was certain she would never ride a horse again.

Englehart was one of the 40 million people in the United States who are affected with musculoskeletal pain. To make matters worse, a large percentage of chronic pain sufferers have undergone multiple failed surgeries and will experience a lifetime of pain, relieved only by pain medications.

“The oral medications took the edge off, but they didn’t make me comfortable,” said Englehart. “Now I can stand for a long time without running home to lie down. My friends have even noticed that I’m a happier person. For the first time since my failed surgery, I am hopeful I may ride again.”

Oral pain medications have long been the primary treatment option for patients with chronic pain, intractable pain or severe spasticity. These drugs cannot target the exact origin of pain and carry several adverse side effects. With Medtronic’s SynchroMed II implantable pump, specially formulated medications are delivered directly to the intrathecal space, the fluid-filled area surrounding the spinal cord. This site-specific delivery targets the medication’s site of action in the spinal cord, thereby minimizing the dose requirements and side effects compared to oral administration of the same drugs.

“Patients require programs specific to their needs,” said Feldman, Chief Physician at The Pain Treatment Center. “There are times when pain cannot be resolved through traditional treatments and medications. In these cases, the ‘Pain Pump’ maximizes the patient’s quality of life.”

The Pain Treatment Centers: Arnold Feldman, M.D., a Harvard trained anesthesiologist specializing in pain management, is dedicated to bringing new technologies and procedures to his state-of-the-art facilities in Baton Rouge, La. and Natchez, Miss. The Pain treatment Centers offer relief from chronic and acute pain relating to back and neck injury, migraines, sports injuries, arthritis, cancer and many other disorders.

Six Straight Years of Double-Digit Medical Rate Increases Has Had a Significant Impact on Both Employers and Employees

Hay Group reviews how companies are turning to innovative approaches to contain ever-rising medical costs. Six Straight Years of Double-Digit Medical Rate Increases Has Had a Significant Impact on Both Employers and Employees

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) March 11, 2022 -- Company medical insurance premiums for 2005 rose approximately 10%, representing the sixth year of double-digit rate increases. These increases are sharply higher than the US Consumer Price Index that was 3.3% for 2004, and an average annual 2.7% for the last six years.

Stated in terms of payroll, employer costs for health benefits have risen steadily from 7.28% in 2000 to over 9% for 2005, according to the Hay Benefits Report, a cross-industry survey of more than 1000 US companies.

“This is a very difficult time for companies to cope with double-digit medical premium rate increases,” said Michael Carter, Vice President in Hay Group’s Benefit Practice. “In the current business environment, most companies simply cannot afford to pass these costs along to their customers.”

As a result, to maintain current levels of profitability, companies are likely faced with shifting medical costs to employees, exploring new strategies to contain rising medical costs, as well as cutting costs in other areas.

“There is no one ‘silver bullet’ solution to contain medical costs, so companies must use multiple strategies,” says Hay Group’s Carter. He adds that “the longer companies wait to address the issue, the more painful it could be for them or their employees.”

Traditional Cost Containment Measures Still Used
Companies continue to negotiate with insurers and administrators and bid coverage when necessary to get the best rates. Organizations also continue to consolidate medical plan offerings and funding.

Another traditional strategy is to shift more costs to employees. Many companies pay a fixed percentage of the premium, so when average premiums rise 10%, then employees’ costs rise 10%. In addition, companies have been increasing employee deductibles, co-payments, and the limit at which employees’ out-of-pocket expenses are capped.

One of the most striking changes in the last three years has been the increase in employee co-payment for doctor visits, with most plans having a co-pay of $15 or more in 2005 versus just under half of the plans in 2002.

Companies Look to Innovative Approaches
“Frustrated with the inability of traditional approaches to sufficiently contain medical increases, companies have turned to innovative approaches,” said Carter. These include changes to prescription drug and retiree medical plans as well as introduction of wellness and disease management programs, health savings accounts, and employee consumerism.

Prescription Drugs
Because prescription drugs have accounted for the largest portion of medical cost increases, employers have been raising plan co-payments, as they have for other medical services. In addition, they have adopted one or more of the following strategies:

- Increasing the difference between generic, brand, and non-formulary co-payments;
- Revising from employee dollar co-pays to percentage coinsurance (which automatically indexes);
- Requiring mandatory generic when available; and/or
- Requiring mail order for maintenance drugs.

Retiree Medical
For companies providing over 65 retiree medical coverage, the new 2006 Medicare prescription drug benefit will offer some relief from the high cash outlay and accounting expense of this coverage. Companies are currently determining whether they can lower their cost more in 2006 and beyond by taking the government’s payment for continuing the coverage or by reducing their plan design to supplement the new Medicare prescription drug benefit.

Wellness and Disease Management
Historically, companies have provided “wellness” programs that include preventive exams, health programs such as smoking cessation, and health club memberships -- all aimed at improving employees’ general health. Companies also have offered “case management” programs aimed at controlling costs of major illnesses.

Disease Management focuses on improving the health -- and thus controlling the costs -- of common manageable diseases. These include diabetes, asthma, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, and hypertension. These voluntary programs, now in place in most companies, are designed to prevent the state of the disease from advancing, and where possible, to result in improvement.

New Health Savings Accounts
Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) along with “high deductible” plans are also emerging as cost containment strategies. These new types of plans involve a company-funded HRA or employee- or company-funded HSA that employees can use for IRS-approved health expenses -- including some items not typically covered in medical plans. Unused amounts can be carried over to the following year, in theory encouraging employees to become better healthcare consumers. Supplementing the HRA/HSA is a “high-deductible” plan, with typical annual deductibles ranging from $1000 to $3000 per individual.

Less than one-fifth of companies report offering as an option an HRA, high-deductible plan, or both. Typical employee participation in these options is reported at less than 10%. In 2005, less than 10% of companies have adopted HSAs with high-deductible plans.

Employee Consumerism
In addition to the strategies described above, “employee consumerism” is a new strategy used by some of Hay Group’s clients. This involves communicating to employees how medical cost increases affect them (e.g., higher employee costs, lower pay increases, lower staffing levels) and what they can do about it (e.g., improve health, use Disease Management, use 24-hour medical assistance services, ask questions of your provider, check insurer charges).

“Just as you would want to do your research to make an informed decision before buying a big-screen TV,” reflected Carter, “people should become better consumers of healthcare. Employers should educate and inform their employees about considering their options before blindly following their doctor’s recommendations. They should ask, for example, ‘Can I use a generic drug in place of the brand name?’ Employee consumerism enables clients to enlist their employees in the battle to control healthcare costs.”

HMOs Lose Their Edge over PPOs
Premium costs for HMO and Point-of-Service (POS) plans that require Primary Care Referrals for specialists and tests are rising as fast as the cost of PPO plans that do not have that requirement. Historically HMO and POS plan premium increases have been less than PPO increases.

“HMOs’ traditional ability to contain costs better than PPOs has disappeared in the last two years,” says Mr. Carter. “This is probably due in part to HMO and POS plans easing up on restricting referrals for care in response to litigation and consumer and government pressures.

“HMOs would rather do the easing up (on restricting referrals) themselves rather than have the government regulate it,” Carter continued. Another reason may be increased pressures on HMOs to raise provider reimbursement levels to come closer to PPO reimbursements.

According to the Hay Benefits Report, HMO and POS plans have been declining in prevalence as the primary plan offered by employers. In 2000, almost half of companies had HMO or POS plans as their primary plan. This has dropped to just a third of companies for 2005. “This shift reflects growing employer and employee discontent with the required referrals for specialists and tests in HMO and POS plans” noted Carter.

Exploring Causes for Continuing Rising Medical Premiums’ Costs
Medical costs have been rising for a number of reasons. One reason is that reimbursement rates to hospitals and physicians are on the rise. In the second half of the 1990s, HMO and PPO plans held down reimbursement rates to the point where healthcare providers took action to gain increases. For example, hospitals have been merging into larger systems, sometimes with physician networks, giving them more bargaining power in their negotiations with insurers.

Another cause of rising medical costs is continuously improving medical technology, which allows very sick people to live longer, and thus incur significant medical expenses. Prescription drug costs increasing at a rate exceeding 15% are another cause of rising medical expenses. Rapidly rising malpractice premiums have also contributed to the problem. Other factors include the aging of the workforce and the fact that Americans have become increasingly less healthy, especially in the areas of weight, diabetes, and heart disease.

What’s In Store for the Future?
Looking ahead to plan changes for 2006, more cost shifting is likely. However, Hay Group’s Carter cautioned that “there is a limit to the amount that companies can shift costs to employees, particularly lower-paid employees.” With the average annual employee premium contribution for family coverage reaching $2600 in 2005 along with increasing co-payments, companies will need to rely on strategies other than cost shifting. “Disease Management and wellness programs, which lower costs by improving employees’ health, currently are the best long-term strategies for controlling costs,” said Carter.

Elder Care Business Owners Should Not Pay Referral Fees

Anti-Kickback Law May Impose Hefty Penalties

(PRWEB) March 11, 2022 -- A ruling, on the books since 1972, called the Safe Harbor Provisions states, in part, "the federal anti-kickback law's main purpose is to protect patients and the federal health care programs from fraud and abuse by curtailing the corrupting influence of money on health care decisions"... it goes on to say, ... "anyone who knowingly and willfully receives or pays anything of value to influence the referral of federal health care program business, including Medicare and Medicaid, can be held accountable for a felony. See http://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/docs/safeharborregulations/safefs.htm

Violations of the law are punishable by up to five years in prison, criminal fines up to $25,000, administrative civil money penalties up to $50,000, and exclusion from participation in federal health care programs.

A referral service serves both the senior and the elder care service provider in this manner:

- Service providers register with the referral service
- A senior searching for a service is asked for their location
- The referral company now emails, phones or faxes each service within the desired zip code to provide you with this referral. (You are provided the name, phone number and address of the senior)
- You and your staff quickly respond - you know if you get there first, you have a higher chance of contracting with the senior
- The senior now receives multiple sales calls from nice people who all say the same thing, "You should choose my company because we are the best"
- You contract with the senior
- The referral company now sends you a bill. The bill is normally based on the dollar amount you charge the senior.

(Example: An assisted living facility that charges $3,000 per month will typically owe the referral service a fee of $1,500. Their neighbor, the assisted living facility across the street charges $1,500 per month and will owe the same referral service a fee for $750.00 for the same client, same service)

Representatives of referral companies normally earn commissions. This can also pose a concern. If a family's income depended on earning a high commission, the temptation may be there to direct a senior to a service that:

a. Charges more
b. Where the staff has a history of 'closing' the sale.

The show offers attendees the opportunity to shop at over 650 booths featuring local businesses and services as well as attend daily seminars conducted by celebrity speakers and local experts focusing on women. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Dr. Kerch will be conducting daily seminars on the Be Well Stage entitled,

Limp in, Leap Out - The Female Foot from Eve to Gucci: 10 Tips 2 Keep U Walking

4:00pm Friday
11am Saturday
3:30pm Sunday

"Z-CoiL pain relief footwear is changing the way I am practicing medicine." Dr. Kerch said during her presentation last year at the Seattle Spring Northwest Women's Conference.

"Impact can now be reduced by 50 percent or more when using the Z-CoiL footwear. This impact reduction dramatically relieves pain in such conditions as plantar fasciitis (heel spars) and arthritis," she explained during her talk. "I have been a practicing podiatrist for over twenty years and I have never seen anything as effective in footwear. I'm seeing people who have been living with intolerable pain relieved by this phenomenal technology."

James Hendricks from Sumner, Washington, says that his Z-CoiLs work for him on the job: "I work at a major hardware warehouse and after only two weeks couldn't work more than four-hour shifts due to foot pain. I went to doctors … with no results. Then I heard about your shoes. I bought a pair and wore them for four working days. To my amazement, the pain was gone. I'm now working 40 hours a week and loving every minute!"

Z-CoiLs, often referred to as "the funny-looking shoes with the spring in the heel," are dramatically changing the lives of people across the country that once suffered from chronic, debilitating pain in their feet, legs and back. Many of the happiest Z-CoiL customers are workers in retail stores, restaurants, fairs, trade shows, hospitals and warehouses, who must spend hours every day on their feet, often on concrete floors.

Criterium, Inc. Continues Building Bridges with Technology

Criterium, Inc., which applies technology to clinical trials in the biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical and medical-device industries across the world, will present a workshop at the annual conference for contract research organizations in April.

Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 10, 2022 — Criterium, Inc., a global technology-based contract research organization, is proud to welcome Lawrence Reiter, general manager of Criterium South Africa, as well as Dr. Shaunagh Emanuel, a distinguished researcher and investigator at PEAK Research in Cape Town, South Africa, to the United States this spring for the 14th Annual Partnerships with CROs conference in Dallas, Texas.

Mr. Reiter and Dr. Emanuel are both currently involved in finishing a major project being managed by Criterium, Inc. in South Africa. This will mark the end of the second major study this year that Criterium, Inc. has conducted in South Africa using IVRS, Fax Form Data Collection, and SMS messaging.

Criterium has been providing creative, clinical-research solutions for more than 14 years. At the annual Partnerships with CROs conference April 4-6, Dr. Emanuel, Reiter and Criterium’s international clinical trials team will conduct a workshop called, “The Big Easy: Successfully Applying Technology to Clinical Trials across World Regions.”

In addition to delivering outstanding patient enrollment and over 90 percent compliance on both studies, Criterium, Inc. has developed a fantastic relationship with clinical investigators throughout South Africa.

“Technology brings us closer together by allowing real-time tracking of each patient enrolled in the study as well as activity at each site,” said Mary Stefanzick, manager of Office Operations and IVR director at Criterium, Inc. “However, the relationships of the individuals using the technology are the real key to a successful outcome,” she said.

The bottom line is “Even with the best technology in the world, if you can’t get the patient to use it, it doesn’t work,” Reiter added.

Dr. Emanuel praised the Criterium team. “These individuals are exceptional in the energy that they put into their projects, in their enthusiasm that they have for what they do, and in the expertise they exhibit at every level,” she said. “In addition to a commitment to excellent personal service, Criterium offers a superb product. It has been a true pleasure to work with Criterium.”

Dr. Emanuel’s comments were welcomed by the Criterium staff, which had been unsure what to expect after meeting a group of clinical investigators hesitant to implement technology a year and a half ago at the first meeting in South Africa.

“I feel like we have done our job and provided the support necessary to enable the investigators and patients to trust in our systems and use them to their full capabilities,” Stefanzick said. “I’m looking forward to doing it again.”

“Misuse of USA Patriot Act Leads to Exposure of Medicare/Medicaid Fraud Scheme Costing Taxpayers Tens of Billions of Dollars”

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) March 10, 2022 -- “If not for the USA Patriot Act the Kansas City based firm Medical Supply Chain, Inc. may have never uncovered the massive fraud scheme which robbed U.S. taxpayers of tens of billions of dollars says President and CEO Samuel Lipari”. In attempting to right the wrong done to his company by U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) and Piper Jaffray's (NYSE: PJC) conspiratorial, malicious and unjustified use of the USA Patriot Act to keep his company out of the health care supply market, Lipari and his legal team have uncovered a scheme that they believe spans three decades and involves just about ever major player in the U.S. Healthcare supply industry as well as at least one major bank and one major investment firm. The complaint, also filed against Novation, University Healthsystem Consortium (UHC), Voluntary Hospitals of America (VHA), Neoforma (NYSE: NEOF) and their chief executives, provides a detailed analysis of how the fraud was created and perpetrated with the help of health care Group Purchasing Organizations (GPO’s) Novation and Premier, whose questionable business practices are surprisingly protected by a Federal Safe Harbor and supported by a number of prominent hospital CEOs.

Medical Supply’s complaint details how the defendant hospital suppliers are conspiring with competing distributors and manufacturers including General Electric’s (NYSE:GE) well known Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX), to artificially inflate hospital supplies by as much as $50 billion dollars a year in a conspiracy involving kickbacks, consulting fees to hospital administrators, extortion and commercial bribes all in an effort to limit what products can be purchased by American hospitals and who can sell them.

Medical Supply Chain's successful entry into the market for medical supplies would have surely led to lower cost for medical supplies and equipment and curtailed the profits coming from the sector and therefore the earnings generated by investment firm Piper Jaffray (NYSE: PJC), who at one time had seventy percent of its investments in health care supply stocks. To prevent this from happening, U.S Bancorp (NYSE: USB) and Piper Jaffray apparently believed they had no choice other than their malicious use of the USA Patriot Act to destroy Medical Supply Chain's ability to raise capital and launch its enterprise.

Additional companies implicated in the complaint but not charged are Premier Inc., Global Healthcare Exchange (GHX) Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Systems (NYSE: JNJ), GE Medical Systems (NYSE: GE), Baxter Healthcare Corp. (NYSE: BAX) Medtronic USA Inc. (NYSE: MDT), Cardinal Health (NYSE: CAH), McKesson (NYSE: MCK) and Abbott Labs, Inc. among others.

Baxa Introduces New Amber Oral Dispenser Packaging for Ward and Bedside Applications

Baxa Corporation announces the release of new packaging configurations for its amber Exacta-Med(R) Oral Dispensers. Oral dispensers are syringe-like devices designed specifically to provide safe and accurate delivery of oral liquid medications, without the possibility of wrong-route administration through a patient’s IV or epidural line. Their amber coloring promotes further differentiation of oral dispensers from standard hypodermic syringes.

Englewood CO (PRWEB) March 7, 2022 -- Baxa Corporation announces the release of new packaging configurations for its amber Exacta-Med? Oral Dispensers. Oral dispensers are syringe-like devices designed specifically to provide safe and accurate delivery of oral liquid medications, without the possibility of wrong-route administration through a patient’s IV or epidural line. Their amber coloring promotes further differentiation of oral dispensers from standard hypodermic syringes.

The new products include Ward and Bedside packaging of the Baxa amber dispensers in 1, 3, 5, 10 and 20 mL sizes. Ward packs offer dispensers with attached tip caps for ease of use on nursing wards. Bedside packs are bags of ten dispensers each for convenient access when oral medications are drawn up and delivered in the patient’s room.

Baxa Exacta-Med Dispensers were the first alternative to a syringe designed with a special tip that prevents accidental injection of oral medications. These dispensers are widely recognized as the safest means to deliver oral liquid drugs. Because they cannot accommodate a hypodermic needle or actuate a needless IV access port, The Institute for Safe Medication Practice and the UK National Health Service, among other recognized authorities, recommend the use of oral dispensers for all oral liquid doses.

Baxa Corporation introduced the Exacta-Med Oral Dispenser in 1975. These dispensers are more accurate for drug delivery than teaspoons or graduated cups and safer than using luer syringes for oral medications. The wider tip design of the Exacta-Med Dispensers was developed in cooperation with representatives and customers from large children’s hospitals. The first to recognize the need for a dedicated oral dispenser, Baxa is still the market leader today.

Latex-free Baxa oral dispensers fit the needs of pharmacy, nursing and outpatient caregivers for safe medication administration. Specially designed tip caps seal oral unit doses in the oral dispensers until administration.

Adapta-Cap(TM) Bottle Adapters fit standard pharmacy bottles to allow mess-free medication withdrawals into the dispensers.

About Baxa Corporation
As a leading provider of devices and systems for the preparation, handling, packaging, and administration of liquid medications, Baxa manufactures and markets a wide range of healthcare products for use in hospitals, critical care units and alternate-site pharmacies. Headquartered in Englewood, Colorado, Baxa has subsidiaries and sales offices in Canada, the United Kingdom; Denmark, and Germany; and distribution partners worldwide.

Aloe Vera, for Beauty and Health – What Grandma Didn't Know

Many remedies that our grandparents used were based more on superstition rather than fact, but grandma’s ancient Aloe Vera remedy had powerful healing attributes that even she didn’t realize.

(PRWEB) March 5, 2022 -- Mail-order specialty plants grower and publisher, Arthur Comer was surprised at what was revealed during a recent search for unique plants to add to his company’s product line. Comer is the owner and general manager of Midlothian, Virginia based ALCJR Enterprises.

Comer was familiar with the Aloe Vera plant and its applications for promoting healing on external cuts, burns and abrasion. He could remember that his grandmother always kept an Aloe Vera plant in the house as a natural treatment for those ailments, and he recalled the soothing feeling it provided when applied to the skin. What Comer didn’t know was that years of research by the medical profession indicates that the medicinal benefits of Aloe Vera is far more reaching than for only treating external ailments, it is known to help a variety of internal disorders, especially digestive tract conditions. Its natural healing and detoxifying powers has brought relief to those who suffer with such digestive tract irritations as ulcers, colitis and a condition commonly known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Dr. Jeremiah Herlihy, Ph.D., a University of San Antonio researcher, was surprise at the results observed in a 1997 study to evaluate the negative effects of daily drinking aloe gel. The animals used in the study that received daily intakes of aloe showed a remarkable reduction in heart disease, leukemia and kidney disease. Dr. Herlihy commented, “We found no indication of harm done to the rats even at high level.” In fact, the aloe-drinking animals actually lived 25 percent longer than those in the control group (IASC Conference, Texas, 1997).

Ancient records dating back thousands of years document the use of Aloe Vera as a beauty enhancer by Egyptian Queens Cleopatra and Nefertiti. Alexander the Great used the plant to treat soldiers wounded in battle, in fact, he was supposedly persuaded in 333 BC by his mentor, Aristotle, to capture the Island of Socotra in the Indian Ocean for its famed aloe supplies. It’s easy to see why Aloe Vera is referred to as “The Medicine Plant.” It is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory, analgesic and age retardant agent, as well as a stimulant to the immune system. Studies have confirmed that Aloe Vera is able to speed up cell growth and has the natural ability to moisturize by carrying added emollients up to seven layers deep into the skin. It also accelerates healing and minimizes scarring that results from wounds.

“My research of the medicinal benefits of Aloe Vera has lead me to conclude that it is the one health and beauty product that should be found in all homes,” said Comer. He added, “Many remedies that our grandparents used were based more on superstition rather than fact, but grandma’s ancient Aloe Vera remedy had powerful healing attributes that even she didn’t realize.”

ReNu Medical and Hospital Shared Services Association (HSSA) Offer Help to Pacific Northwest Hospitals

ReNu Medical, a leader in medical device reprocessing and now the only medical device reprocessor in the Pacific Northwest, announced today they have signed on with Hospital Shared Services Association (HSSA)

Everett, WA (PRWEB) March 4, 2022 -- A merger and/or acquisition of a company can be a good thing or not such a good thing depending on who you are talking with. Hospitals now faced with added cost, delays in product delivery, lost savings, product quality and patient safety, are forced to accept the acquisition of a Pacific Northwest medical device reprocessing vendor.

“ReNu Medical and Hospital Shared Services Association (HSSA) will help hospitals by filling the gap left by this acquisition. Hospitals desiring to continue with the advantages of high-level disinfection, reducing their medical waste and double the savings over sterilization, all at a price equal to or less than their previous vendor is available right now through HSSA,” said Loren Timmons, VP of Marketing and Business Development.

HSSA is a non-profit organization of member facilities voluntarily joined together on a unified basis for the purpose of reducing the cost of health care delivery by the most effective use of our combined market power. Hospital Shared Services Association is a regional cooperative consisting of a network of hospitals and health services throughout the Pacific Northwest. Their members share the common goals of reducing costs while maintaining the highest level of patient care.

“Hospitals originally made the right choice to have non and semi critical single use devices high-level disinfected. We are very excited to be partnering with HSSA to bring our service, price and quality products to their members. ReNu and HSSA can provide a cost effective solution to escalating healthcare costs,” said L. Bruce Pierson, COO at ReNu Medical.

About Renu Medical:
ReNu Medical is the leading reprocessor of non-invasive single use medical devices (SUD’s). ReNu’s unique services focus on providing the safest product for the patient, reducing medical waste and significantly reducing supply costs by maximizing available savings.

ReNu’s unique focus on non and semi critical devices provides a significant source of cost savings with very little associate risk. These devices go ON the body not IN the body. High Level Disinfection (HLD) offers significant cost saving advantages over sterilization methods.

For example, ReNu’s non-toxic method of HLD has the proven ability to turn an individual medical device 2-3 times more than a sterilizing reprocessor which equates to 2-3 times the cost savings. Additionally, with our quick turn around time, two weeks compared to 8-12 weeks, less inventory is required thus saving you even more money. Finally, ReNu has the proven lowest discard rate in the industry (less than 10% on average) allowing you to get more devices back. These advantages offer significant savings far above other reprocessors.

High-Level Disinfection technology is 100% non toxic, environmentally friendly and a safe gentle alternative for the non and semi critical devices. HLD offers twice the life span and double the saving of toxic Ethylene Oxide Gas (EtO) utilized by sterilization reprocessor’s. No harmful air emissions are released into the environment and no chemical residue is left on the device. HLD is supported by the CDC, APIC, and other healthcare organizations.

ReNu Medical is a supporter and Champion of Hospitals for a Healthy Environment. We recommend you visit their website (www.h2e-online.org) to learn more about how to reduce hospital medical waste.

March is DVT Awareness Month

Seeing The Culprit: Draxis’ Nuclear Medicine Strives for Faster Detection Of DVT - A Common but Serious Medical Condition
March is Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month, a public health initiative to educate healthcare professionals and consumers about this serious, potentially life-threatening but preventable medical condition.

(PRWEB) March 4, 2022 -- DVT describes a blood clot (thrombus) in a major vein, usually in the lower leg or thigh. According to the American Heart Association, up to 2 million Americans develop DVT each year, and an estimated 600,000 go on to develop Pulmonary Embolism (PE), a potentially fatal complication where blood clots affect the lungs and eventually the heart. An estimated 200,000 people die each year from PE in the U.S. – more than AIDS and breast cancer combined.

Symptoms of DVT may include pain, sudden swelling in the calf or thigh, tenderness, discoloration or redness, and skin that is warm to the touch. Surprisingly, these symptoms are often mistaken for other diseases and as many as half of all DVT episodes produce minimal symptoms or are completely “silent” and remain undiagnosed until they lead to a life threatening pulmonary embolism.

Ultrasound is the most common diagnostic tool for DVT but is not considered particularly accurate below the knee, where many clots begin to form, and it only has approximately 60% sensitivity for asymptomatic DVT. Venography is a painful and much less commonly used procedure where a contrast agent is injected into a vein on top of the foot and X-rays are used to track the solution through the vein of the leg. However, the same type of nuclear medicine procedure that is used today for liver, lung, bone and brain scans may one day help physicians rapidly detect the active clotting process in DVT.

A new diagnostic imaging agent, called Fibrimage®, under development by Canadian-based Draxis Health, aims to make DVT detection quicker and more reliable. Researchers at Draxis Health are investigating whether Fibrimage® can accurately check for newly-forming thrombus (blood clots) in the large, deep veins in the lower limbs. These dangerous clots can be caused by a variety of risk factors and triggered by either increasing age, obesity, cancer or decreased blood flow resulting from restricted mobility following major surgery such as joint replacements.

This innovative diagnostic approach starts with an injection of Fibrimage® in the arm. The active agent in Fibrimage® binds to human fibrin, part of an actively forming blood clot, and within two hours the clot can be seen on a gamma camera. The procedure is expected to allow physicians to distinguish, with a high degree of sensitivity, a new active thrombus from any older and less threatening stabilized clots.

“Most doctors rely on conventional ultrasound scans to make a diagnosis, but ultrasound cannot distinguish whether the clot is an active clot needing urgent attention or a chronic inactive clot,” said Dr. Martin Barkin, CEO of Draxis Health, “Our goal is to develop Fibrimage®, to the point that it can be a reliable diagnostic agent for the early detection of deep venous thrombosis, and recurrent deep venous thrombosis so that life-saving therapy can be targeted at the affected patient in a timely way and long term complications can be minimized.”

A late stage clinical trial of Fibrimage® as a diagnostic agent for deep venous thrombosis is nearing completion in Canada and discussions are on-going with the FDA to conduct an additional late stage trial in the United States.

“Health Forum” to Feature VirtualScopics

VirtualScopics’ computer-assisted analysis techniques provide superior precision and reproducibility, enabling faster and more reliable detection of disease progression or therapeutic benefit, accelerating the clinical trial process, and providing a basis for future diagnostic applications

Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 4, 2022 -- Platinum Television Group is pleased to announce the selection of VirtualScopics for its innovative, educational television series, Health Forum, to be featured in a segment on “Medical Solutions” as part of the Innovations Series.

For pharmaceutical companies developing drugs for cancer, heart disease, osteoarthritis, or degenerative neurological diseases, it is crucial to know whether the disease is getting worse or is being contained by the drug being tested. Until recently, there have been few ways to quantitatively detect minute changes in these diseases and their reaction to new drugs.

VirtualScopics’ computer-assisted analysis techniques provide superior precision and reproducibility, enabling faster and more reliable detection of disease progression or therapeutic benefit, accelerating the clinical trial process, and providing a basis for future diagnostic applications. The company’s proprietary software algorithms can process hundreds of separate medical images taken during an imaging session into a single, anatomically accurate three-dimensional model, providing clinical researchers a previously unobtainable source of reproducible data, including the characterization of minute changes over time. This visionary biomedical firm evolved from research initially undertaken at the University of Rochester Medical Center and School of Engineering.

VirtualScopics has a large number of unique software products and processes that drastically improve drug development time. VirtualScopics utilizes its patented suite of image analysis algorithms to detect, measure and analyze specific biological structures from medical image data, such as that generated by computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), and ultrasound (US).

Now VirtualScopics has pioneered imageonomics, a new science that enables the precise measurement of small and subtle changes in structure and function over time. Imageonomics provides a total solution, from biomarker development to quantitative image analysis, to the world’s leading drug development companies, enabling them to make the go/no go decision on early stage compounds sooner and with greater confidence.

Headed by Stuart Shapiro, M.D. , who has had a successful career as both a businessman and as a physician, as well as a background in management and healthcare, VirtualScopics provides unparalleled depth of experience, technological capability and expertise in imaging for clinical trials. The company’s services support all aspects of imaging in clinical trials, from design to FDA submission.

“With the technology that we have been able to develop, we can produce a three-dimensional model that looks not only at the outside of the tumor, but also the inside, and we can track it over time, so that we can pick up what's happening to that tumor literally on a weekly basis and detect very, very sensitive and minimal changes. This capability gives the drug companies the opportunity to use fewer subjects in their trials and therefore allows the Pharmaceutical Companies to bring drugs through development much more quickly…,” said Dr. Shapiro.

New Digital Solutions for Health Care Providers: EMR/ EHR revised

Health Office solution company Comtech Networks focuses on assisting medical offices to comply with new rules, regulations and guidelines.

Long Island, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 2, 2022 -- Star Trek’s Doctor’s would have been amused, but for today’s medical practitioners, a tablet PC, which retrieves medical data from a server is just one available technical tool, helping them to increase data security and reduce administrative costs. Service companies now offer customized solutions for each individual medical office, following the goals of the paperless office, the EMR (electronic medical records) guidelines and President Bush’s new pledge for an “US Electronic Health Record System (EHR)”.

Comtech Networks, based in Long Island (New York) is a prime example of a specialized health office solution provider. The company is focused on the improvement of procedures and standards in medical offices from 1-40 doctors. After initial assessments, Comtech Networks suggests various software and -if necessary -hardware solutions, which are focused around the practice manager’s needs and include as much or as less digital/ electronic change as necessary.

“Our main goal is to increase the profitability and productivity of the medical office,” says Jim Carpenter, CEO of Comtech Networks, “The result is a win-win situation for everybody. Digital Medical Office Solutions is about the simplification of office procedures, reduction of costs, increase in payments, decrease in errors and a clear enhancement of data security.”

In accordance with the government’s new initiative, Comtech recognized some time ago, the importance of “incorporating health information technology”. As President Bush recently said, it is time to “wring out the inefficiencies” of our “19th century paperwork system”.
The services Comtech is offering to a health care provider include:
• The design of a completely automated office (in cooperation with Greenway Medical Technologies)
• The integration of a document management solution (in cooperation with SRS Software)
• a customized “minimal solution” to achieve compliance

Already under the regulations of the 1996 HIPAA (“Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act”) every medical practice was required to comply with the new privacy and security rules, which started to be latest enforced in 2004. During this period, Comtech has successfully assisted numerous medical practices across the United States in their transition to an efficient modern office environment. Jim Carpenter proudly points out, that “…most of our customers have been impressed by our passion for details – that is: finding the right solution for their individual situation. There is a difference between a 3 provider OB/GYN practice and a 15 doctor medical center – so you always need a customized approach from a local expert.”

Now, Comtech is ready to take its services a step further and to make every doctors office in the North East ready to become part of the “New National Electronic Health Care Network” and connect them to President Bush’s proposed “regional hubs”. Comtech still works with many of its original customers, but the IT service company is confident that it will increase its customer base remarkably, once the mainstream practitioners realize the benefits and business sense of adopting an EMR/ EHR.

About Comtech Networks:
Comtech Networks provides digital solutions for the medical office, through assessment, analysis, and implementation of customized systems. Comtech offers partial or complete solutions for EMR (Electronic Medical Record), document management, scheduling, billing and general IT challenges.

Since 1996, the Long Island (New York) based company has focused on the needs of the medical office. Gaining outstanding expertise with HIPAA compliance challenges, Comtech Networks is now focused completely on helping every medical office in the North East to become part of the National Electronic Health Care Record Network (EHR).

Comtech Networks was established in 1988 and provided premium system development, infrastructure support, and project management expertise to a variety of markets. In this time Comtech successfully supported technology intensive organizations such as Citigroup®, Citibank®, Blockbuster Video, Stony Brook University Hospital, Sony, and Prodigy.

Dr. Rahul Nath Announces Grand Opening of City of Houston’s First Stand-Up™ MRI Facility

Dr. Nath has scanned more than 300 patients using Stand-Up™ technology; opens facility to serve need for more accurate and less claustrophobic scanning.

Houston, TX (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 1, 2022 -- Dr. Rahul Nath, a reconstructive microsurgeon at the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas, and founder and director of the Texas Nerve and Paralysis Institute, announces the grand opening of Natural MRI, the City of Houston’s first stand-up magnetic resonance scanning or imaging (MRI) facility at 8307 Knight Road in Houston (www.drnathmri.com).

MRI is a method of looking inside the body without using surgery, harmful dyes or x-rays. The scanner uses magnetism and radio waves to produce remarkably clear pictures of the human anatomy. Stand-Up™ MRI allows patients to stand, sit or lay down while they are scanned.

With this technology, patients for the first time can be scanned in weight-bearing postures and in the position that causes their symptoms. The upright posture places all of the joints, including the shoulder, neck and spine, under the influence of gravity, which allows for better imaging to determine misalignment of the shoulder joints and abnormal spine positions.

"Scanning patients in the weight-bearing position is the only one that makes sense, especially when imaging the spine and knee joints. Using Stand-Up™ MRI, I have been able to identify pathology in patients that is not visible using traditional scanners. Other aspects that can only effectively be imaged in the upright position include the prostate gland and hernias," Dr. Nath said.

Prior to opening the Natural MRI facility, Dr. Nath scanned more than 300 patients since December 2004 using Stand-UP™ MRI technology.

"I chose to open the Natural MRI facility because the patients I treat for complex nerve injuries, such as brachial plexus and winging scapula, benefit from a scan that will help me better diagnose their injury. With Stand-Up™ MRI, children do not have to undergo risky sedation as with traditional MRI scans," Dr. Nath said.

Dr. Nath said that Stand-Up™ MRI is remarkably spacious and non-claustrophobic and that his patients typically sit comfortably watching a 42-inch television monitor throughout the procedure. Patients as young as six months old can be scanned while they are sitting on an adult’s lap. The entire process takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

Dr. Nath utilizes the FONAR Corporation’s Stand-Up™ MRI, the company’s whole-body Upright™ imaging system, which is the world's only whole-body open MRI scanner with the ability to perform Position Imaging™ (pMRI™), which is imaging that is performed while patients are standing, sitting, bending or lying down. With its unique ability to scan patients in weight-bearing postures, the FONAR Stand-Up™ MRI has identified pathology that had gone undetected on conventional, lie-down MRI scanners.

Dr. Nath is Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and is a widely published author, as well as a member of the American Society for Peripheral Nerve, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Houston Neurological Society. He has been named one of "America’s Top Doctors" every year since 2001 and travels internationally to lecture and give instructional courses on nerve injury and management. Dr. Nath specializes in treating brachial plexus injuries, winging scapula injuries, prostate nerve injuries, foot drop, facial paralysis, impotence and nerve tumors.

For more information about Stand-Up™ MRI, contact Dr. Nath at (713) 592-9800

Sensor Systems Can Improve Quality of Life for Millions

Dynamic pressure measurement technology helps podiatrists, chiropractors, orthopedists and other professionals evaluate and diagnose a diverse range of plantar problems such as diabetic foot, ulcerations, hammertoes and neuromas. Early signs of scoliosis and other conditions can also be detected.

East Hanover, NJ (PRWEB) March 1, 2022 -- Through recent advances in its Tactilus® plantar pressure measurement technology, Sensor Products LLC is now positioned to assist podiatrists, orthopedists, chiropractors and other medical professionals in making the best diagnoses and recommendations for their patients. Essentially, the emergence of technologies like the Tactilus® foot platform and insole systems is critical to the well-being of millions of people.

For instance, diabetes is the fifth major cause of disease-related deaths in the United States. Out of the estimated 18.2 million Americans affected, 4.5 million will suffer from plantar problems like degenerative foot disorder and complications due to neuropathy such as bunions, hammertoes, Charcot feet and more. Experts on the disease stress comprehensive foot care for amputation prevention and overall comfort for diabetes sufferers. Orthotic devices and appropriate footwear play a large role in the quality of life for these patients.

However, diabetics aren’t the only demographic subjected to pain caused by plantar pressure abnormalities. In fact, about 100 million Americans experience biomechanical plantar problems caused by obesity or arthritis-induced heel pain, heel spurs, hammertoes or neuromas. By utilizing Tactilus® foot platform and insole electronic pressure measurement sensors, professionals can easily detect, diagnose and monitor patients with these and other plantar abnormalities. Visit www.sensorprod.com for more information.

“These new analysis systems are the most advanced in the world and can be dedicated to innumerable applications,” said Carlos Ruiz, Tactilus® product manager. “The link between technological advancement and human quality of life is ultimately exhibited because of the diverse global populations the Tactilus® systems can potentially benefit.”

Employing user-friendly software, the foot platform and insole sensor systems generate in-depth statistical information and dynamic 2-D and 3-D profile images for such medical and ergonomic body mapping needs as: diabetic and neuropathic patient screening, orthotic and prosthetic efficacy profiling, pronation/supination impact evaluation during bi-pedal locomotion activities, pre- and post-surgical comparative analysis, ulceration detection, degenerative foot disorder monitoring, ray hypermobility diagnosis, and early scoliosis detection. With unprecedented speed and accuracy, the systems comprehensively profile plantar pressure distribution and magnitude.

The Tactilus® foot platform analysis system enables professionals to perform dynamic pressure profiling in order to evaluate shoe-to-ground interaction related to the diabetic foot, pronation, foot arch and weight-bearing capabilities and assess impact effects in bipedal locomotion activities of both feet, either exclusively, or in relation to each other. The platform detects body motion (foot-knee-hip) to effectively profile any abnormalities. In addition, densely packed sensors in the Tactilus® platform analysis system offer the user high resolution images and a modular architecture.

The Tactilus® insole systems are advantageous in their basic design by assessing foot-to-shoe interaction. The foot insole is comprised a thin and highly durable substrate material and ranges in size from unisex US 1.5 to 10.5 (EUR 33 to 44). The insole sensor collects precise data for determining pedal pressure points and assessing athletic plantar implants in activities ranging from standing and walking to running, jumping, skiing and skating. Working at speeds up to 500 Hz, this system’s velocity is unmatched by any other technology.

Both the Tactilus® foot platform and insole analysis systems possess robust sensors which can endure thousands of uses with consistent repeatability, and are highly resistant to electromagnetic noise, temperature, and humidity fluctuations. The full-scale Windows-based software provides isobar and region-of-interest viewing, graphical displays of data in bar charts, line scans and histograms, statistical analysis of average/minimum/maximum pressures, total force over any selected area, analysis view of all nine major foot zones, pressure vs. time and more.

Demonstrations of Tactilus® analysis systems can be requested by contacting Sensor Products at 1.973.884.1755 or at www.sensorprod.com/tactilus.
