The latest ViSi Mobile software update integrates machine learning with increased speed to continue to provide world-class surveillance monitoring which wirelessly communicates critical data to clinicians and identifies physiological deterioration before it becomes a life-threatening event.San Diego, United States , March 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Led by Dr. Devin McCombie, Sotera Wireless has released its newest version of ViSi Mobile software (Version 6.0). ViSi Mobile was one of the first “patient wearable”, “non-tethered”, monitoring devices on the market. After 8 years of commercial use, the ViSi Mobile system has collected over 22 Million hours of high-fidelity de-identified hospital patient data, achieving the largest data set of its kind anywhere in the world. The newest version of software, version 6.0, is the accumulation of 8 years of data gathering and software iterations. With this version, the product is able to utilize machine learning in order to display appropriate alarms without creating alarm fatigue and optimizes the clinicians’ workflow. This update is not only an improvement to wireless patient monitoring but is especially beneficial in reducing clinicians’ exposure to COVID-19 positive patients. The new version allows healthcare teams to not only provide outstanding care but have better data for improved patient outcomes in the face of the pandemic. More information can be found at http://soterawireless.com/workflow According to Dr. McCombie, “This kind of access to high resolution (50-500 Hz sampling rate) data is a data scientist’s dream. Through research collaboration with top hospitals across the globe, our partners are amazed at the level of detail our data holds. The key to predictive algorithms (Smart Alarms) is contained within our data set and is the key to saving countless lives. The depth and breadth of our data, allow us to create more accurate algorithms for all of the vital sign parameters. We know through collaboration with our customers and working with the data, that “all vital signs matter, all the time”, which translates to be able to detect hidden signs of patient deterioration. This is even more apparent now, in the face of a deadly pandemic when patients deteriorate rapidly outside of the intensive care unit.” Other benefits to the newly updated system include increased speed of automated data collection and calculations. Using the latest advanced algorithms, the new version of ViSi Mobile software is able to reduce these processes and increase workflow productivity. The update also speeds up the setup process to allow ViSi Mobile to be deployed rapidly in hospitals across the United States. This version of the software has long been the vision of Dr. McCombie. Dr. Devin McCombie, a world expert in the field of physiological monitoring, started his education at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) where he received a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical/Medical Engineering. His studies continued at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he received two Masters degrees and a doctorate in Engineering. In 2008, Dr. McCombie, completed his thesis on ‘Wearable Blood Pressure Monitor using Adaptive Calibration of Pulse Transit Time’ which is the basis of Sotera’s ViSi Mobile cNIBP (Continuous Non-Invasive Blood Pressure) calculations. He continues his work at Sotera Wireless where he leads the organization as CEO. Sotera Wireless is a San Diego, CA-based healthcare technology company that is dedicated to producing the most accurate, comprehensive wearable monitoring system in the industry. The ViSi Mobile System enables ICU-level continuous monitoring in the general ward and beyond. The system is a wearable platform that continuously monitors all patient vital signs (Pulse Rate, Heart Rate, ECG, SpO2, cNIBP (Continuous Non-Invasive Blood Pressure), systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP), Respiration Rate, Skin Temperature, Posture, Fall Detection) and detects Life-Threatening Arrhythmias (AFIB, AFIB RVR, VFIB, Asystole) while wirelessly communicating data to clinicians. System alerts can be tailored to notify clinicians of fluctuations that signal deterioration in a patient’s health. This use of surveillance monitoring reduces Rapid Response Team activations, reduces Length of Stay (LOS), and reduces transfers to the ICU while providing insight into early physiological deterioration and prevention of adverse events.

Vodafone Group said on Tuesday it would seek to raise up to 2.8 billion euros ($3.32 billion) in proceeds by floating infrastructure unit Vantage Towers in Europe's largest initial public offering of 2021. The UK-based operator set the price range for the flotation of Vantage Towers on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange at 22.50 to 29 euros per share, implying a total market capitalisation of up to 14.7 billion euros. That would top the valuations of a European IPO crop that has so far this year featured Polish e-commerce firm InPost, German used-car trading platform AUTO1 and British boot brand Dr. Martens.
Leading Sports Brand Wooter Apparel Begins Accepting Dogecoin Leading Sports Brand Wooter Apparel Begins Accepting Dogecoin NY, March 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sports apparel brand leads the way in offering athletes and teams a new way to purchase custom made athletic jerseys, uniforms, and gear for all seasons. NY, United States, When Wooter launched in June 2014 in Staten Island, New York, the upstart customized athletic apparel company envisioned growing the brand well-beyond the borough and becoming a go-to name in the global market by working directly with sports teams and athletes around the world.Thanks for the opportunity to design and create unique and premium customized athletic apparel outfitted by the likes of legendary boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, hip-hop icons Master P and Snoop Dogg, NFL greats Chad “Ochocino” Johnson and Terrell Owens, NBA alums Al Harrington, Smush Parker, Stephen Jackson, and Matt Barnes among others, the Wooter “infinity” logo has emerged as one of the most recognizable sports brands worn by youth, ametuer, college, semi-pro, and professional teams and athletes in sports today. Seven years later, Wooter and Wooter Apparel are now taking the brand “to the moon”. Weeks after CEO Alex Aleksandrovski announced CovCare -- the one-stop-shop for all medical supplies and PPE items -- has started accepting Dogecoin, Wooter Apparel is following up this breaking news by officially announcing parent company Wooter has joined a number of companies to accept Dogecoin as an alternative form of online payment. The cryptocurrency announcement comes on the heels of CovCare surpassing over 100,000 PPE orders placed alone in 2020, with CovCare expected to make an even greater impact on the global market in 2021. After rising from a popular meme in 2013, Dogecoin has transitioned from being used to tip and reward quality content providers on Twitter and Reddit. Over the past eight years, Dogecoin has soared from a “joke” cryptocurrency to receiving a massive following and becoming a coin accepted by companies and merchants around the world. Along with CovCare, Wooter and Wooter Apparel joins a growing list of companies that accept Dogecoin including Travala.com, Ninja Game Keys, Box Real Estate, Stake Box, Daytona Nissan, and AiryTea just to name a few businesses. According to Accepted Here, a regularly updated database of online and offline businesses accepting cryptocurrency from all over the world, 120 companies and businesses are listed as accepting Dogecoin with more being added daily. With Dogecoin a cheaper option to transact beyond credit cards and banks, Wooter Apparel is once again staying ahead of the game as it has past experience with cryptocurrency. In 2015, Wooter made headlines by becoming the first sports apparel company to accept Bitcoin payments and also teamed-up with Coinbase to offer customers a $10 promotional BTC for signing-up with the digital currency exchange company. Wooter now believes crypto and blockchain technology can help facilitate global payments, and that news couldn’t come at a better time as sports starts to “open back up” on a local, regional, national, and international level. When athletes and teams get ready to step on the field and court this season and compete, expect them to be wearing customized jerseys, uniforms, and gear from Wooter Apparel.

NoHo Partners CEO Aku Vikström: “The cost savings implemented last year and an effective operating model has allowed us to minimise the cash flow burn rate to under two million euros per month. For March, the market situation will change as the Finnish Government mandated restaurants to close. We immediately activated our lockdown backup plan, and now there are approximately 200 restaurants closed and approximately 2,200 people temporary laid off. The layoffs were carried out quickly and flexibly in cooperation with the staff. Our staff have been the hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis and we are fully committed to getting through this situation without any permanent redundancies. For March, our business will continue with about 40 restaurants focused on takeaway food.
