BioFit Introduces Solution to Extend Mobile Folding Table Life

Bowling Green, Ohio (PRWEB) July 17, 2014

BioFit Engineered Products, a leading designer and manufacturer of ergonomic seating and mobile folding tables, today announced the invention of a patent pending part that will extend the usable life of the companys tables. Called the adjustable torsion cap, the component was designed to restore the original level of torsion to the lift-assistance devices of previously marketed tables. Resetting the torsion level facilitates folding and unfolding, eliminating the need to replace the lift bars.

Foldable tables utilize assist devices to help move the table from an unfolded open position to a folded closed position. Such devices are necessary as particular models can be large and heavy, making it difficult to fold and unfold the table without them. Assistance devices can also provide some resistance during the unfolding process, preventing the overly rapid movement of the sections of the table as it is unfolded.

When a table is folded into the storage position, there is little to no tension on the lift-assistance bars. However, when the table is unfolded for use, the legs rotate away from the table top, twisting the lift bars and creating torque. After years of folding and redeployment cycles, the bars can lose some lifting force. A decrease in lifting force is also prevalent in tables frequently left in the open position, which places tension on the lift-assistance device over the entire time the table is open. Due to the weight of the tops of some table models, even a slight decrease in force can affect how easily the table can be lifted to the folded position and the speed at which it unfolds. BioFit discovered that the addition of an adjustment capability to the torsion cap design provided the ability to reestablish and maintain the original level of lift bar torque. BioFit president Ed Metzger expanded on the benefit of the new part: Moving forward, incorporating the adjustable torsion cap into our table design will eliminate an age-old issue with lift-assistance devices. The new cap will ensure the lift capability of tables through the life cycle of the product. This can enable customers to save money by prolonging the need to replace a table. Additionally, replacing original caps with the new adjustable cap will provide a cost effective way of refreshing the lift on older tables in the field.

BioFit will install the adjustable torsion cap on all new tables which use lift assistance bars. The company will also offer retrofitting on previously sold tables on a case-by-case basis.

Located in Bowling Green, Ohio, BioFit Engineered Products is a leading manufacturer of LEED-compliant, ergonomic chairs and stools, GREENGUARD-certified mobile tables, carts and accessories for healthcare, education, laboratory, industrial, technology and office environments.

For Cosmetic Procedures, Dermatologists Have Most Influence: ASDS Survey

Rolling Meadows, Ill. (PRWEB) July 10, 2014

Consumers trust their dermatologists more than friends and primary care physicians when considering whether to have a cosmetic procedure, according to recently released survey data from the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

The second annual ASDS Consumer Survey on Cosmetic Dermatologic Procedures asked more than 8,300 people in a blind online survey for their opinions on cosmetic treatments in general, and ratings for 10 specific procedures, from wrinkle-relaxers to body sculpting.

More than half of respondents say their dermatologist has the most influence on whether to have a procedure, followed by friends, primary care physician, and 11 other choices. Fifty-two percent said the specialty in which the physician is board-certified is the top factor in selecting the practitioner to perform their treatment, ahead of physician referral, price, and eight other factors.

ASDS member physicians receive unparalleled training in cosmetic procedures, and consumers recognize this, said ASDS President Mitchel P. Goldman, M.D. We understand the aging process from top to bottom, from the skin surface to the loss of facial volume. We are trained in a wide variety of techniques in rejuvenation of the skin, as well as rejuvenation of the underlying dermis and fat.

Consumer demand for cosmetic treatments is increasing, according to the survey. Five in 10 respondents up from three in 10 a year ago said they are considering having a procedure. Goldman believes this increased demand is due to a combination of factors: a more robust economy; more effective and more minimally invasive procedures; and an aging population that does not wish to retire and is concerned with physical fitness and the desire to look as good as they feel.

The four most popular procedures under consideration are treatments to tighten skin and smooth wrinkles; procedures for facial redness, skin tone, and scars; chemical peels, and body sculpting. Those procedures all address top consumer concerns of excess weight, skin texture and/or discoloration, excess fat under the chin and neck, and sagging facial skin.

Dermatologic surgeons not only specialize in the treatments available for these concerns, but we also pioneered many of these advancements, Goldman said. We have perfected minimally invasive treatments, from treating lines and wrinkles to refreshing the face with laser treatments or chemical peels, and removing body fat to eliminating a double chin.

Many common concerns are easily correctable with the proper procedure and the right doctor, Goldman said.

Savvy consumers understand the importance of expertise. They want to trust their face and body to a physician who is an expert in a wide variety of procedures, he said. ASDS members are not just carpenters who act as a hammer, thinking everything is a nail. We utilize the most appropriate technology to individualize treatments to a patients specific, unique concern. We are the skin experts.

Energy Drink Market – History, Growth, Projections, Trends and the Uncertain Future of Energy Drinks

The energy drink market does not seem to stop its rapid growth. Energy drinks have made themselves a staple in certain sectors and has begun to branch successfully into several other niche sectors.

When a large number of consumers jumped into the energy drink craze, the big energy drink companies began producing more extreme (and some might say, more shameless) products. When another group voiced their opposition to what they saw as big companies pushing unhealthy drinks to the youth, the companies began producing alternatives that were marketed towards the health-conscious sector looking for natural and healthy benefits.

Now it seems there is a specific type for everyone. Although the growth of the energy drink market has slowed since the original explosion a few years back, it has yet to stop. It seems the market has been established and these drinks are here to stay. Despite the continual surfacing of numerous reports indicating the dangers of the high levels of caffeine in these drinks, it seems the energy drink companies feel the health dangers and concerns are worth the risk considering the massive profit.

Weight Loss & Sports and Energy Drinks – What Role Do They Have in Weight Loss?

Sports and Energy Drinks – Who Needs Them?

Sports drinks have become a staple of American athletics. Every major sports team including the NFL, Major League Baseball, and NASCAR, are sponsored by and use sports drinks. Given the large amount of calories and sugar in the drinks, the issue is who needs them and do they quench thirst and really rehydrate people?

Physical activity of any kind exposes everyone to the possibility of dehydration. Numerous factors determine how one sweats and therefore how much water replacement will be needed during and after exercise. Fluid replacement depends on environmental factors including temperature, sun exposure, humidity, and wind, as well as the intensity and duration of the activity. Not only is there a difference between different activities, but between individuals; some people simply sweat more than others and need greater fluid replacement.

Excessive dehydration is as a loss of a body weight of 2% or greater with physical activities. Thus a 160 lb person is dehydrated if he loses 3.2 lb. or more during an event. They use average sweat rates (the amount of fluid lost per hour during exercise) to predict the possibility of dehydration. Here are some sports performed outside and the average sweat rates: basketball- 1.4 liters/hour, soccer -1.5 liters/hour, tennis -1.7 liters/hour and running 0.75 liters/ hour (at a speed of 5 mph.).
