Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. offers the LivMD Vibration Plate


Shirley, New York (PRWEB) March 11, 2015

LivMD improves a wide variety of conditions, including balance and muscle health, circulation and posture. It also helps to reduce pain. The device can be used for stand-alone therapy or as part of a rehabilitation program. Because it is low intensity, it is useful for those who have brittle bones or problems with balance. Just 10 minutes a day is all that is required to receive the benefits from LivMD.

LivMD is for people that wish to remain active, or as an adjunct therapy for supporting musculoskeletal health in the elderly or infirm. Unlike traditional whole-body vibration that operates with acceleration of 10g, low intensity vibration is a safe, scientifically-proven biological signal that improves physiological and neuromuscular health by improving muscle control and condition, balance, circulation, posture and reduces pain – all of which contribute to increased mobility and reduced fall risk.

The technology of low-intensity vibration is ideal for those who find it difficult to exercise or for whom certain forms of exercise may be unsafe due to risk of fracture, falls, or joint damage, or for those struggling to incorporate ample exercise to maintain independence.

“We are excited to include the LivMD as part of our Mobility Enhancement devices,” states Don Gronachan, Vice President Physical Medicine Sales. “It can be used for a wide variety of pathologies allowing therapists and facilities to increase their clinical value.”

Vital Health, Inc. Outlines Essential Vitamins and Nutritional Supplements That Are Critical For Those With Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance


Orland Park, IL (PRWEB) March 15, 2015

“Celiac disease and gluten intolerance are autoimmune disorders that have a diverse range of manifestations throughout the body. Both of these disorders can affect any body tissue, organ and gland. Strict adherence to a gluten free diet is only the first step toward recovery. A second critical component is helping the body recover nutritionally, “began Barbara Griffin, NMD, CNC, Certified Gluten Practitioner and director of Vital Health, Inc.

Anyone living on a restricted diet has to compensate for the lack of specific nutrients. People with celiac disease and gluten intolerance face have an added challenge since nutritional malabsorption often precede their diagnosis. “The right nutritional supplements are a vital part of recovering and living a healthy gluten free life. For most people living with celiac disease and gluten intolerance there are a common group of vitamins and minerals they are deficient. Digestive enzymes and probiotics each play vital roles in the recovery process,“ Dr. Griffin remarked.

Vitamin D3:

For people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, vitamin D deficiency is present because it is absorbed in the region of the small intestines most commonly damaged by the disease. Vitamin D plays a critical role in modulating the immune system and reducing inflammation. Vitamin D deficiency in celiacs could be making leaky gut and inflammation worse. (1) Vitamin D deficiency is linked to: increased risk of Parkinson’s disease, autism and dementia; high blood pressure; bone disorders; and a variety of cancers such as breast, colon, ovarian, and esophagus.

Dr. Griffin recommends introducing ProVitality Vitamin D3, which is available in 2000, and 5000 IU’s along with testing levels through a blood test.

Digestive Enzymes:

Enzymes are proteins made by the bodies that break down specific types of foods into absorbable parts. Enzymes are a critical part of digestion and nutritional absorption. Deficiencies in digestive enzymes can contribute to sub-optimal nutrient absorption and are an important aspect of managing celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Digestive enzymes secretion is decreased in people with celiac disease due to the mucosal damage to the intestines.

When selecting a digestive enzyme look for one that is going to aide in the proper digestion of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Ideally, enzymes are taken with each meal to help break down foods. This leads to fewer digestive symptoms such as gas, bloating, constipation or diarrhea, and also enhances nutrient absorption. Vital Essence My-Zymes are a complete enzyme blend and are chewable, making them a great option for children who would benefit from digestive enzymes.

Probiotics:

Probiotics are healthy bacteria that keep the micro flora (bacterial balance) of the digestive systems intact and prevent overgrowth of “bad” bacteria. The normal human GI tract contains 400+ types of probiotic bacteria.

Probiotics help keep bad bacteria under control which is essential for celiacs since they are prone to bacterial Dybiosis, meaning they do not have optimal levels of the beneficial bacteria and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), a condition where bad bacteria in the small intestines perpetuate nutrient malabsorption. Besides keeping bacteria under control, taking a multi-strain probiotic can reduce gluten-associated joint and muscle pain, fatigue and brain fog as well as control yeast gut colonization. (2) When selecting a probiotic, look for one that contains multiple strains and that has a higher bacteria count (CFU). Probiotics should be taken on an empty stomach. Probiotics are available in adult and children formulas.

Minerals

People with gluten intolerance, especially those diagnosed with celiac disease are often deficient in several key minerals. Due to inadequate pancreatic enzyme secretion, many celiacs are deficient in Vitamins A, E and K. Iron deficiency is the most common non-digestive symptom of celiac disease. (3) Iron absorption may normalize after one year or more on a gluten free diet.

Through the EVA screening, Dr. Griffin can check for nutritional deficiencies and identify what vitamins and supplements will help strengthen the body. If appropriate, Dr. Griffin will recommend blood work through SpectraCell Laboratory who specializes in nutritional testing.    

Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid

Folic acid is a B vitamin and like B12, the absorption of folic acid is diminished in celiac disease. This is often the case in those who are gluten intolerant. L-5methyltertrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF) is the predominate form of folate. L-5-MTHF is a reduced, metabolically active form of folate that occurs naturally in foods and is the primary form of found in the blood and tissues. As a result, it is far more effective for people who have or prone to a folic acid deficiency. Dietary supplements MethylFolate and Methyl-B-12 Lozenges are available through the Vital Essence Supplement line offered by Vital Health, Inc.

Vital Health, Inc., addresses a whole body approach to health with the intention of facilitating well-being and optimal health. Before starting any supplement regimen Vital Health, Inc. recommends consulting your physician.

Rising Average Age of Vehicles Drives the Global Market for Automotive Aftermarket Brake Friction Parts, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 30, 2015

Follow us on LinkedIn – The average life of vehicles on the road stands at a record high of 10 to 11 years. Key factors driving vehicle retention include engineering innovation, increase in useful life of vehicles, and changes in consumer wealth structure and financial choices. In the United States, consumer consumption, spending and income continue to remain flat. Greater than expected sluggishness in the labor market and lack of meaningful growth in wages and income are creating changes in consumer wealth and spending patterns. Recovery in asset prices and household wealth to pre-recession levels is seen as hugely unlikely. Another key reason for the relatively anemic recovery of consumer spending in the country is the wealth inequality which has been made even more disproportionate by the 2007-2009 economic recession. The recession punctured the over 8 trillion dollar overvalued housing bubble and crippled households across the country. The cumulative erosion in household wealth averaged to over US$ 15 trillion in the year 2010. In Europe, overindebted households represent a key bottleneck hindering consumer spending. With one in every 9 households in Europe unable to meet financial commitments including recurring expenses, spending on durable goods remains subdued. Against this backdrop, cars are being retained for longer.

The longer replacement cycle and the increase in the number of miles traveled per vehicle are creating opportunities in the aftermarket. Vehicle maintenance and component replacements are therefore receiving a boost. As the most critical safety system, brakes represent the most often replaced auto part. High replacement frequency of worn out brake components including rotors, brake pads, calipers and parts is spurring growth in the market. Stringent safety norms, growing consumer emphasis on personal safety, and focus on preventive maintenance, represent other major factors driving growth in the market. Healthy gains in automotive production in developing countries is also forecast to spur growth in the long-run, since more number of vehicles manufactured creates a parallel secondary market for auto parts including brake friction parts.

As stated by the new market research report on Automotive Aftermarket Brake Friction Parts, Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 6.8% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by the surge in car ownership rates, and frequent wear and tear of the braking system due to heavy commuter traffic in crowded cities in densely populated countries such as India and China.    

Major players in the market include ABS Friction Inc., Advics Co. Ltd., Akebono Brake Industry Co. Ltd., Continental AG, Delphi Automotive PLC, Dongying Xinyi Automobile Fitting Co., Ltd., Federal-Mogul Corporation, Fras Le, Japan Brake Industrial Co. Ltd., Meritor Inc., Nan Hoang Traffic Instrument Co., Ltd., Nisshinbo Holdings Inc., Nisshinbo Brake Inc., TMD Friction Holding GmbH, Robert Bosch GmbH, and TRW Automotive, among others.

The research report titled “Automotive Aftermarket Brake Friction Parts: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of trends, growth drivers, restraints, market share, size and demand projections and forecasts. Major geographic regions covered include the US, Canada, Japan, Europe (France, Germany, Italy, UK, Spain, Russia, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (Australia, China, India, South Korea and Rest of Asia-Pacific), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico and Rest of Latin America) and Rest of World. Key segments analyzed in the report include Brake Pads and Brake Shoes.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 17, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn – The global swimwear and beachwear market is witnessing steady growth, driven by growing health consciousness, rising popularity of beach culture and water sports, increasing emphasis on active and healthy lifestyles, and continued innovations in swimsuit design and technology.

Aging-but-active population in the US, Japan, and Europe as well as in emerging markets of Asia and Latin America, presents attractive opportunities for swimwear manufacturers.

Regional boundaries for fashion are fast blurring with increasing globalization where design trends have become more global than ever. Over the years, fashion, which was more concentrated on the element of style and innovation, is gradually changing its definition to the ‘comfort’ aspect. Increasing incorporation of the comfort element is attracting more consumers to swimwear. Women continue to be the larger buyer group in the global swimwear and beachwear market. They also constitute the highest spenders on expensive swimwear, while men continue to be price sensitive. The trend however, appears to be changing gradually, with men also beginning to show increased interest towards purchasing expensive swim and beachwear as the emphasis on aesthetics increases. Children’s swimwear category, on the other hand, represents the fastest growing segment within the global swimwear and beachwear market. High end designers, who earlier emphasized more on the women’s segment, have now realized the potential of this exceptionally growing market segment, and are designing swimwear for this category.

As stated by the new market research report on Swimwear and Beachwear, Brazil constitutes the largest market in terms of unit sales and the United States in terms of value sales. Asia-Pacific, driven largely by China, represents the market with the highest potential for future growth. China represents the fastest growing market for swimwear and beachwear, both in terms of value and volume. Growing acceptance of swimwear as fashion attire, increasing consumer disposable income, and growing influence of western culture, are some of the major factors spurring growth in the country.

Major players covered in the report include American Apparel Inc., Arena Italia S.p.A, Diana Sport, Wacoal Eveden Ltd., La Perla Group, NoZONE Clothing Limited, O’Neill Inc., PARAH S.p.A, Pentland Group Plc., Speedo International Ltd., Perry Ellis International Inc., Jantzen Apparel LLC, Quiksilver Inc., Seafolly, Seaspray Swimwear, Tefron Ltd., Swimwear Anywhere, Inc., TYR Sport Inc., and PVH Corp.

ElliptiGO Inc. Partners with the Atlanta Track Club to Provide New Training Opportunities to the Local Running Community


San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

ElliptiGO Inc., creators of the world’s first elliptical cycle, today announced their partnership with Atlanta Track Club (ATC), the second largest running organization in the U.S. Eight new ATC-branded ElliptiGOs are now available for their members to check out, take home, and use as needed. In addition, the ATC will be using the ElliptiGOs to pace various events throughout the year and will have them present at post-race expos and award ceremonies.
