Finnish Servicepoint to resell, install and support Systech’s serialization solutions in Scandinavia, the Baltic States, and Russia

servicepoint-fi__logo_europawireFinland, 23-Sep-2016 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — Systech International, a global leader in brand protection technologies, today announces the extension of its strategic partnership with Servicepoint, a leading serialization automation supplier.

Systech has signed a global agreement with Servicepoint, allowing the company to act as a single point of contact for customers across Europe. Through this agreement, Servicepoint will now resell, install and support Systech’s serialization solutions to customers of any size across Europe, especially in Scandinavia, the Baltic States, and Russia.

This agreement comes at a critical time within the pharmaceutical industry, as the European market is growing exponentially. It is estimated that over the next three years, 15,000 production lines for prescription medication in Europe must be fitted with a serialization system. The European Commission adopted a regulation on October 2, 2015, under which the serialization of prescription medicine packages will become mandatory in all EU countries by 2019.

Systech and Servicepoint first engaged two years ago when jointly delivering serialization and automation/integration solutions to a pharmaceutical manufacturing client. As a result, both companies were able to offer enhanced solutions and increase their speed of delivery.

Servicepoint maintains and offers professional services, automation services, retrofit/upgrade services to Systech customers and provides Level 1 and 2 support, while Systech provides Level 3 support for the software.

“Servicepoint has a solid network of over 50 professionals in Europe, which, when combined with Systech’s growing regional support, creates a large and experienced talent pool for the delivery of serialization initiatives,” states Harry Saint-Preux, Director, Global Alliances & Channels, Systech International.

“Servicepoint has extensive expertise and a long history automating hundreds of production lines for different fields of industry and European pharmaceutical manufacturers, as well as experience with track-and-trace initiatives. Systech and Servicepoint’s combined approach provides manufacturers with the solutions, services and support required to address Europe’s challenging serialization requirements,” notes Saint-Preux.

Risto Finne, chairman of the board, Servicepoint, comments, “Servicepoint is honored to enter into this partner agreement with Systech, who we consider to be the global market leader in serialization. This cooperative paves the way for numerous new business opportunities, particularly with Russian companies that need to rapidly employ serialization. Our experience in integrating modifications and upgrades of existing production lines, in addition to new, turnkey, fully-automated solutions for the serialization and packing of medical, food and other sensitive products puts us in an enviable market position.”

Servicepoint is one of only a handful of suppliers in the European market that provides an all-inclusive production automation solution including planning, installation, testing, and maintenance.

Sway Medical’s app for sports concussion exam received European CE Mark as Medical Device

sway-concussiontest-is-a-validated-ios-app-based-concussion-management-system

TULSA, OK, 08-Sep-2016 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — Sway Medical is a US medical device company who’s software turns an iPhone or iPad into a mobile medical device that provides immediate medical grade, objective concussion measurement to medical professionals.

Sway Medical LLC (Sway) would like to announce its official availability in all European Union Countries. Sway was issued its CE Mark after being marketed in the United States and Canada for two years. This is significant because European sports organizations ranging from youth through pro level now have an affordable and convenient sideline assessment tool supporting concussion related medical decision making. Medical professionals and trained coaches can obtain a concussion assessment via an Apple mobile device (iPhone or iPad) and the Sway Balance™ System web-portal. Acute objective measurements are obtained by performing a 1.5 minute balance and reaction time test protocol. Licensed athletic trainers, physical therapists and athletic therapists are able to join physicians in acutely managing the underserved market of youth sports, ages six and older.

Concussion injuries are very common in sports, often going un-reported or ignored until the obvious symptoms have incapacitated the athlete or draws the attention of a parent or coach. Second Impact Syndrome (SIS) is a serious medical condition with published mortality rates of up to 50%. SIS occurs when an athlete returns to play while still recovering from an initial concussion injury. During this time, the brain is highly susceptible to additional injury and complications. The Sway Balance™ System is able to accurately assess and track the acute and chronic outcome related to an athlete’s balance, motion reaction time and concussion symptoms. The Sway Balance™ System provides a graphical representation comparing suspicious injury event tests against a pre-injury “normative” or baseline score. The comparison of event tests against an established baseline is a common measurement for traumatic brain injury diagnosis and recovery tracking.

The Sway Balance™ System is available for purchase by licensed medical professionals involved in school, occupational or sports medicine through www.swaymedical.com. Additional protocols are available to assess an individual’s “Fall Risk” or “Functional Status”.

Advanced Hair Studio Talks Preventing Premature Hair Loss

LONDON, United Kingdom, January 18, 2016 — /EPR NETWORK/ — The world’s number-one name in new-generation hair loss treatments has once again reached out to the public with important information on premature hair loss. While addressing even the more severe cases of hair thinning, falling and premature baldness that can now be effectively treated, Advanced Hair Studio continues to reinforce the value of prevention above and beyond treatment. From nutrition to overall health to lifestyle choices and more, there’s much that anyone can to do improve their chances of avoiding premature hair loss.

Premature Hair Loss

Though many instances of both female hair loss and male hair loss are impossible to prevent, an enormous proportion of cases are indeed preventable. Treatment is always an option, but Advanced Hair Studio insists that with a little proactive and positive action, premature hair loss is an unfortunate reality that could be avoided by most.

An Array of Triggers
“It is easy to realise the connection between your health and state of mind to the way your hair is behaving. Diet, strange sleep patterns, anxiety, stress, being pregnant, colds, menstrual cycles and the vitamins and pills you take to control them; all can cause hair loss. Usually someone with healthy looking hair knows how to properly care for their hair, healthy hair is also a sign that the individual is in good health. The majority of people in the UK have access, or can get access, to good nutrition; however, those who unfortunately can’t, and those with certain medical conditions, can suffer from hair loss.” – Advanced Hair Studio

In both men and women alike, three of the biggest known triggers of premature hair loss are unhealthy hair styling practices, poor dietary choices and prolonged or excessive fatigue and stress. Advanced Hair Studio warns that to ignore or overlook any such triggers is to face a dangerously elevated risk of premature hair loss, even if things appear to look and feel perfectly healthy for the time being.

The most severe problems tend to occur when these kinds of triggers are combined with one another. But as they are all either preventable or can at least to some extent be self-managed, it is never in the best interests of anyone to ignore them. At the same time, hair loss at any stage in life can also be attributed to a wide variety of underlying health conditions that may require medical attention. As such, it is better to err on the side of caution and to seek professional advice if at all concerned.

Consider a Consultation
“Premature hair loss doesn’t always happen at the same time as an emotional trauma or illness, the effects can take a while to show themselves, sometimes several months can pass before the hair begins to show signs that it has been affected. Some instances of these illnesses or emotional traumas include an operation, stress, extreme dieting, and postpartum hair loss. If you are concerned you are suffering from hair loss, a hair loss specialist can examine you and provide you a diagnosis on your current situation and any treatments available should you be suffering from hair loss.” – Advanced Hair Studio

As with most conditions related to health and wellbeing, the sooner premature hair loss is both addressed and discussed, the better. It can take time for the positive effects of any lifestyle changes to really kick in, which is why it’s always better to nip problems in the bud rather than give them time to grow and intensify. Caught early, premature hair loss need not be a detrimentally life-affecting problem.

A simple, obligation-free consultation could be all that’s needed to map out an effective approach to premature hair-loss prevention. Should treatment be required, the likelihood of an outstanding and lasting outcome accelerates exponentially when advice is sought at the earliest possible stage. Advanced Hair Studio offers free initial advice and consultation, so while there’s absolutely nothing to lose by getting in touch, there could be an extraordinary amount to gain.

About Advanced Hair Studio:
Advanced Hair is the world’s premier authority on the treatment and prevention of hair loss and baldness. Founded back in 1976 and now spanning the entire world, Advanced Hair calls upon unique and revolutionary techniques and treatments to deliver results quickly, safely and affordably. Obligation-free consultations are always available to both discuss potential hair-loss triggers and highlight available approaches to treatment.

Brescia, Italia, May 19, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Secondo la #SIIA (Società Italiana dell’Ipertensione Arteriosa), in Italia


• il 31% delle donne ed il 33% degli uomini soffre d’ipertensione arteriosa*

A Bold Move: 79-year old champion bodybuilder competes against 40-, 50-, 60-year olds!

Amador County, CA, May 08, 2015 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — A career spanning nearly 50 years isn’t over yet for Amador County veteran bodybuilder and one of the original Mr. Venice Beach competitors, Arthur Peacock. Peacock, who is turning 80 this year, takes the stage with 40-, 50-, and 60-year olds this Saturday, May 9 at the Contra Costa Bodybuilding Championship, to be held in the Chabot College Performing Arts Theatre.

“There is no doubt that this is a career turning point for me. It’s what I’ve been training for my entire life, but especially the last three years. I’ll have 60-seconds to prove myself—my physique and my poses—with competitors between 40 and 69. That’s potentially almost 40 years younger than me.”

Peacock chose to compete in three classes for a couple of reasons—no 70s bracket existed, and he has every intention of continuing his legacy to inspire others who want to follow their bodybuilding dreams.

“I want people to see me and say, ‘I can do that. Look at that guy up there at 80.’ I want to inspire to the end; I’ve done it all my life. I’ve had world champions come up to me and say, ‘I remember when you stopped and spoke to me as a teenager, and now, 20 years later, I’m the number one guy. Thank you.’”

It was in 1965, as an already athletic young man in his early 30s, an avid swimmer, surfer cyclist, and hiker, that Peacock went as a spectator with his friends to his first bodybuilding competition. “I knew I wanted to do that—that I could do that.” And that he did, taking home his first trophy in the 1968 Mr. Venice Beach competition, which gave rise to a half-century career with more than 50 major titles earned.

With constant variation in workouts and motivation from our inspiring trainers, participants complete the class feeling energized and accomplished.

Orangetheory Fitness has been featured in The New York Times as an effective new plateau-busting workout in which participants can burn up to 900 calories in a 60-minute session. Backed by the science of post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), our heart-rate monitored training (OTBeat) is designed to help participants keep heart rates in a target “orange zone” that stimulates metabolism and increases energy in order to achieve noticeable, lasting results.

OTBeat is a heart rate monitoring program specifically designed for group training. Each participant wears a transmitter pod that displays their heart rate and percentage of max on a large monitor in the studio. Clients will know exactly what their heart rate is throughout the workout by simply glancing at the monitor. After each workout, participants are able to break down the results of their workout and visualize their progress.

The result is the Orange Effect – more energy, visible toning and extra calorie burn for up to 36 hours after your workout.

Regenexx Announces the Publication of “Orthopedics 2.0 – How Regenerative Medicine and Interventional Orthopedics will Change Everything” on Amazon Kindle

Broomfield, CO, February 02, 2015 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — With more than 40,000 downloads, “Orthopedics 2.0 – How Regenerative Medicine and Interventional Orthopedics will Change Everything” is now available on Amazon Kindle. The third edition of the top-selling e-book is being offered as a free download through Jan. 6, 2015.

Written by Dr. Chris Centeno, this e-book delves into the human musculoskeletal system and explains how everything works together in concert to maintain our physical wellbeing. When a single component in this chain is damaged, it can lead to a cascade of joint, spine and connective tissue problems, resulting in chronic pain.

Using the Regenexx SANS approach, Orthopedics 2.0 walks you through a series of tests and exercises that you can do on your own to better understand where your own body is struggling to maintain proper stability and alignment, explaining the possible reasons and long term implications along the way. Orthopedics 2.0 also explores how Regenexx is pioneering the new field of Interventional Orthopedics, where the use of regenerative biologic treatments, such as adult stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma, are being used to help repair and strengthen damaged tissues, as opposed to invasive surgeries that often remove important tissues when a joint or the spine becomes damaged.

With hyperlinks to more detailed information, related studies and commentary, this book condenses a vast amount of data and resources into an enjoyable and entertaining read.

About Regenexx
Since its genesis in 2005, Regenexx has been a world-leader in the use of adult stem cell treatments for orthopedic conditions, providing non-surgical, biologic therapies delivered with high accuracy through a needle. Regenexx has collected and published more data on stem cell patients than any other company and are dedicated to reinventing orthopedic care to help patients avoid invasive surgery.

Featured on television and media outlets such as the Doctors TV show, ABC News, Good Morning America and many others, Regenexx is taking orthopedic stem cell therapy to an exciting new level.

ViroCarb’s anti HIV Crowd Funding Campaign

Toronto, Canada, December 01, 2014 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — ViroCarb Inc. has launched a worldwide crowd funding campaign to promote the development of its new HIV infection inhibitor.

WORLD AIDS DAY – Make a donation to save lives from AIDS! Support new treatment development at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/funding-a-new-therapy-against-drug-resistant-hiv/x/9240077

Despite the great progress made in HIV/AIDS treatment, there is still an urgent need for new drugs, particularly for people who have had to abandon existing treatments due to HIV drug resistance and side effects.

The current treatment of HIV/AIDS involves the use of three or more drugs from five main general classes, used in combination. While this antiretroviral therapy (ART) has helped to reduced morbidity and mortality from AIDS, long term toxicity and the emergence and transmission of drug resistant HIV strains limit the effectiveness. Thus, despite therapy which can render this a chronic, rather than acute fatal infection, development of new drugs to prevent infection and overcome drug resistant strains, is increasingly urgent.

ViroCarb Inc. is developing a novel technology that addresses infections by drug resistant HIV strains. Developed from the identification of a new, natural resistance factor against HIV infection by scientists at SickKids and Canadian Blood Services, ViroCarb’s inhibitor works against a previously overlooked target on the virus to block HIV from entering human cells, the very first step in the infection. It works against all HIV strains.

Funds are needed to aid in moving forward to support preclinical studies; therefore ViroCarb Inc. has started an international crown funding campaign to carry out these HIV model studies needed before conducting clinical trials.
Please support this new way to block HIV.

Hays PureWater Launches $10,000 Campaign To Save Lives

WASHINGTON, IA, November 25, 2014 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — 783 million people live each day without clean water and 3.4 million die annually from a lack of pure water. To combat these staggering statistics, Washington-based nonprofit, Hays PureWater, launched a crowd-funding campaign. The money raised will fund 30 Khlor Glen technology units to purify water for 150,000 individuals. The organization hopes to raise $10,000 by December 1st.

Hosted on crowd-funding platform IndieGoGo, the project offers nine sponsorship levels. Each level includes novelty “rewards” for donors, ranging from stickers to t-shirts to a trip to Haiti. The rewards are unique, innovative and hands on, giving donors a sense of ownership in the project. For just $2,500, an investor can travel to Haiti (all inclusive) to see the life changing benefits first hand.

The Khlor Glen is a simple unit that turns salt water into chlorine. The chlorine treats infected water, removing deadly impurities and toxins in just one hour. It’s solar powered and easily used in remote areas, where clean water is most needed. “It will also impact malaria zones as it can be used as a bug repellant and protect from disease,” says founder John Hays. “Even just using the chlorine produced by the unit as a sanitizer can cut down on so many infections that the natives in these areas don’t even know exist.”

In the last eight years, Hays PureWater distributed over 4,000 purifying units around the world, changing entire communities by implementing this system. It’s proven to work. Hays builds each system with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers. Nothing is outsourced, ensuring the most effective product for the lowest cost. Now all they need is help from their community to change the lives of those in need once more.

See the crowd-funding campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hays-purewater-providing-clean-water-globally

ABOUT Hays PureWater
In 2006, after traveling around developing nations on missions trips, John Hays began to create a low cost, portable solution for water purification. John, who worked with municipal water works for over 30 years, put his experience to use and developed the Khlor Gen system. Through the years, the design and look has been changed and improved, but the mission has stayed the same. The organization exists to provide people with clean water, reaching out to them through word and deed. Eight years and 4,000 units later, that mission continues full steam ahead.
