THERES AN APP FOR THAT iPods Not Just for Music Anymore; May Become a Staple in the OR

Oak Lawn, Illinois (PRWEB) August 11, 2012

The iPod touch is not just for music and videos anymore.

Nurse, please hand me my iPod is quickly becoming as common as nurse, please hand me my scalpel in some of the operating suites at Advocate Christ Medical Center as physicians increasingly turn to high-tech ways for enhancing the efficiency and precision of surgical procedures.

The iPod touch used for surgery is a typical, off-the-shelf, hand-held device that any consumer can purchase, but includes a special app allowing the surgeon to track and map the patients anatomy at the surgical site, receive a digitized image of the surgical area on the iPod screen and use that image and anatomical calculations to make incredibly precise, accurate cuts.

The medical center has become the first institution in the nation to employ the Dash navigational software for iPod touch in the operating room since the iPod technology was approved for use by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2011. Trials of the device had been performed at another medical center prior to FDA approval.

Orthopedic surgeon, George Branovacki MD, has been using the iPod touch successfully since July of this year to perform knee-replacement procedures at Christ Medical Center. (See the video at http://bit.ly/MImfDf.) He expects to do as many as 30 such procedures by October, in time to present his work at an international meeting in Sydney, Australia.

The iPod touch puts the power of GPS-like navigation in the hand of the surgeon. It improves the overall accuracy of the procedure, ensuring a precise cut in the right spot, Dr. Branovacki said. Helping the surgeon make better decisions leads to better patient outcomes.

Using Dash for iPod touch in surgery also may extend the life of patients joint replacements because the device helps ensure the highest precision in the placement and alignment of the joint-implant components, experts say.

In the operating room, the iPod is first placed in a sterile, clear bag and then inserted into a small cradle with reflective spheres. An infrared camera system, affixed to a mobile, easy-to-maneuver platform, locates the iPod by detecting the spheres. Touching a digitizing probe, which is mounted to the iPod touch, to surgical landmarks allows the tracking system to record the information. Calculations are made in milliseconds, and the camera sends back wirelessly to the surgeons iPod a 3-D image of the patients joint or other area to be treated.

Other iPods and iPads that may be in use in the operating room and include the special app also pick up the same image, making the system a superior learning application for students and residents.

Providing the first app of its kind in the clinical environment, the Dash Smart Instrument Technologies are designed to bring the benefits of traditional operating-room navigation in a cost-effective, easy-to-use way. The iPod touch works remotely with the mobile platform and infrared camera to give surgeons accurate and intuitive guidance through each procedure and help them make interactive, fine-tuned adjustments to surgical instruments that ensure correct placement of artificial knee and hip implants.

Dash Smart Instrument Technologies for iPod touch were developed by Brainlab, which provides computer-assisted or navigational surgery technology for orthopedic, neurosurgical and spine procedures.

Sirius Computer Solutions Helps AISO.Net Become More Eco-friendly


Romoland, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2006

AISO.Net, California's first and only solar-powered hosting company announced today that they have chosen Sirius Computer Solutions, a leading technology company in business for 25 years, specializing in high end data storage and virtualization software. Using VMware, Sirius Computer Solutions will enhance their data center and reduce electricity usage by providing a high end, scalable infrastructure solution for their dedicated and shared hosting clients. AISO is moving all of their physical servers into virtual machines, which in turn will reduce power consumption and will be better for their clients and the environment.

Based in Romoland, California, AISO.Net has been providing environmentally friendly web hosting services since 1997. Using solar panels to power its data center and network, AISO.Net hosts web sites and dedicated servers for customers throughout the US and many other parts of the world. Due to the massive growth of web hosting and dedicated server clients, AISO.Net chose to virtualize their hosting solution. VMware and NetApps' clustered SAN (storage area network) solution was a natural fit to reduce power consumption within their data center.

"Many hosting companies decide to sell low cost dedicated servers and hosting services to clients and when disaster strikes these low cost unreliable solutions can have hours of downtime. People usually don't think about downtime and data loss until disaster strikes. That is why this solution is so good." says Phil Nail, technology manager for AISO.Net. The SAN is clustered and takes a server snap shot every 3 hours, yet is configurable per virtual machine. This means that if a disaster strikes, a server can be restored and back online in a matter of minutes. This is the best solution on the market and it is proven technology that is used by other major companies such as 7 Eleven and Monster.Com.

In addition to providing additional redundancy, VMware and NetApp provide AISO.Net with increased flexibility and scalability. As AISO.Net continues to grow, the storage can be increased simply by adding additional fiber drives. Load balancing and CPU power can be adjusted with the click of a mouse. The NetApp SAN is built with redundant power supplies, fans, CPUs and network connections so the storage appliance will continue working if any component fails. Because the components are hot swappable they can also be repaired or replaced without having to schedule downtime.

With VMware's VMotion technology, unique to VMware, the system will automatically move running virtual machines from one physical server to another with no impact to end users (Zero Downtime), allowing maximum resource availability to each machine. Plus all of the virtual machines have network card failover and load balancing between separate network cards enabling greater hardware availability, speed and fault tolerance. The VMware systems also continuously monitor all physical servers in the cluster and almost instantly without human intervention, restart the virtual machines on a different physical server in the event of a server failure, so they are back online within minutes.

AISO.Net is the only true 100% solar powered data center that does not use green energy credits. They are proving their commitment to be the best, most reliable eco-friendly hosting company in the world. In 2007 eco-friendly hosting company AISO.Net will become the first and only public data center in North America to add a green roof to their facility.

About AISO.Net

AISO.Net has been a trusted name in environmentally friendly web hosting since 1997, providing a level of service that is unmatched in the industry. All network and server hardware is fully redundant with 24x7-automated systems monitoring to ensure the highest possible uptime. Using solar panels to power its data center and network, AISO.Net is the first and only 100% completely solar powered web hosting company. Customers as far away as Kenya, East Africa rely on the service and reliability offered by AISO.Net.

Grudi Associates is Using New Mobile Hotspots Technology to Help Businesses Become More Mobile, Efficient and Cost-Effective.


Harrisburg, PA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Utilizing new mobile hotspots technology, Grudi Associates is enabling businesses to connect Wi-Fi-only devices to the Internet even when Wi-Fi is not available. This powerful functionality is greatly expanding a companys ability to do business anywhere a wireless signal is available, without investing in devices with onboard modems.

This tool makes it easier and more economical for companies and organizations to do business outside the confines of their facilities, says Walt Grudi, President of Grudi Associates, a leading provider of telecom and IT services in Central PA and beyond. Now, with the expansion of 4G, and especially LTE, mobile hotspots can provide the high-speed Internet connections necessary for any Wi-Fi device to handle virtually every mobile business need.

The biggest benefits mobile hotspots offer businesses are:

Productivity By creating a Wi-Fi environment for several devices anywhere there is a cellular connection, team members can do business virtually anytime and in any location. This creates more collaboration, less down time and faster responses to customer and company needs.

Efficiency As a single source for up to ten Internet connections, mobile hotspots eliminate the need to equip every mobile device with its own onboard modem. It also connects more devices with the business network, especially if using a virtual desktop cloud-based environment (VDI).

Cost Savings A few mobile hotspots cost much less than purchasing many new devices equipped with onboard modems. Mobile hotspots can also significantly extend the life of older devices that only have Wi-Fi capabilities.

Security Most Wi-Fi in public places provides unsecured connections that are vulnerable to compromise and criminal activity. Mobile hotspots (Mi-Fi) create secure, encrypted connections, accessible only by authorized users.

Mobile hotspots, or Mi-Fi, are portable wireless broadband devices approximately the size of credit cards that simultaneously function as a modem, router and Internet access point, says Grudi. They are equipped with modems that access a wireless signal from the carriers and utilize an internal router to share the connection with users and devices usually five, but up to ten, at least for now. The numbers are sure to go up.

Unlike smartphones, mobile hotspots are very simple to use. They are essentially ready to go, right out of the box after initial charging, activation and minor setup. Just turning them on triggers an auto-connect feature on many models. If a carrier signal is present, the Wi-Fi connections are immediately available. Individual devices may have other features and capabilities (like SMS), but basic operation has virtually no learning curve.

Mobile hotspots are an excellent business solution for companies, organizations and individuals who:

Marketing Videos Now Become Affordable.


Pune, India (PRWEB) May 21, 2012

MarTeck Consulting, a Video Production Agency for Technology Companies, today announced all types of video production at a flat fee of USD 500 per minute. These videos range from product demos, customer stories, animated infographics, to product feature videos.

Their customers include startups, established product brands, and large IT service companies. When asked about quality concerns, Esha Goyal, one of the founders remarked Our customers seem to love our work. We've yet not had a complaint about poor quality."

"Weve refined and re-refined our processes. Tools are easy to use - its the story that we bet on. We hire only the best visualizers and story tellers. We know how vidoes should be. And because we are all techie marketers - were able to build relevant and impactful stories for tech businesses quickly., added Esha.

Because of budgetary constraints, technology businesses are neglected by video production agencies. Agencies either prefer to chase high value B2C customers or charge a steep fee. Weve successfully piloted our production engine. Its efficiency coupled with the India cost advantage; were able to offer fantastic videos for a flat fee of $ 500 per minute. No hidden costs and all that. said Sameer.

The future of content is video. And the SMB technology market like ISVs have no reason to procrastinate. Instead of getting 3 text based case studies - consider putting a customer on camera. After all, 3 prospects will not read 3 case studies. Just 1 video on their iPad will be far more effective., said Esha.

Technology has commoditized itself. And nothing is B2B anymore. No one wants to take out time to read your paper. The most powerful way to engage a prospect or even a suspect is to use the AV format and present your proposition. Youll see almost every ISV today has a video on their home page. A company like Dropbox has ONLY a video on their home page! It gives a visitor comprehensive product introduction in less than 2 mins. Purchase decisions become so much easier when someone can show you what they have quoted Sameer.

Text based content can get the job done for sure. However, its video that gets the job done faster and better. Thats because a video is more engaging. How many times have you switched off an engaging video? And mind you, with videos you get to capture 2 out of 5 senses. - mumbled Sameer as he bit into his sandwitch.

When asked why they themselves dont have a video, Sameer and Esha both chuckled, We are working on it - itll be up soon.

About MarTeck Consulting:

MarTeck specializes in videos production for technology businesses. It undertakes all kind of marketing videos from animation to camera work for a flat price of $ 500 per minute.

MarTeck believes videos for technology isnt like making a funny film. The story has to be relevant to their customers customer. And this takes years of involvement with the industry. MarTeck Consutling has been providing marketing and content services to technology businesses for over 2 years. In the last 5 years, Sameer has consulted and built content for over 30 tech companies.
