New Device is Helping Patients Make Strides with their Mobility

YourUpdateTV

For those living with mobility impairments, wheelchairs, walkers and canes are a necessity for everyday life. While technological advancement has completely transformed almost every sector over the last century, innovation in mobility aids has largely remained the same. Recently, Founder and CEO of CIONIC, Jeremiah Robison, as well as Patty Glatfelter, a multiple sclerosis patient whose life has been transformed thanks to the Cionic Neural Sleeve, conducted a satellite media tour to share insights on the Cionic Neural Sleeve that's earned recognition as one of Time's Best Inventions of 2023. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/ZyJLaAuRp2c People living with mobility impairments are asking for, and deserve, better tools, harnessing the power of modern technology. Motivated by his daughter Sofia’s mobility challenges from cerebral palsy, tech innovator Jeremiah Robison founded CIONIC to harness the technological advances in continuous diagnostics and machine learning to help the mobility impaired not only regain mobility in the moment, but potentially improve it by strengthening and retraining the body over time. CIONIC is a neurotech company on a mission to superpower the human body to reach its fullest potential. CIONIC’s vision is a world beyond disability and limitations, enabled by personalized healthcare technology. The company’s premier product, the FDA-cleared Cionic Neural Sleeve, is changing the lives of people with upper motor neuron conditions (multiple sclerosis, stroke, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury and more) drastically increasing their ability to walk, move and balance. Voted one of Time’s Best Inventions of 2023, The Cionic Neural Sleeve analyzes, predicts, and augments muscles in the leg to improve walking, updating with each step the wearer takes. To learn more visit cionic.com Jeremiah Robison Bio Jeremiah Robison is the Founder and CEO of CIONIC, an innovative company that builds lightweight and durable bionic clothing driven by powerful algorithms that adapt in real-time to each individual's mobility needs. He started the company in 2018 after his daughter was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and he was frustrated at the lack of effective technology available to help improve her mobility. Four years later, CIONIC introduced the breakthrough, FDA-cleared Cionic Neural Sleeve, the first product to combine sensing, analysis and augmentation into a wearable garment. Prior to CIONIC, Jeremiah spent twenty years at the intersection of data, algorithms, and the human body, driving innovation in sensing and machine learning at Apple, Openwave Systems, Slide, and Jawbone. Jeremiah has a BS and MS in Computer Science from Stanford University. About Patty Glatfelter Patty Glatfelter, 69, a Florissant, CO resident who has had multiple sclerosis (MS) for 37 years, has been using the Cionic Neural Sleeve for almost a year now. Patty, a former physical therapist, retired back in 2008 because of her limitations to provide care due to her MS. Before the Cionic Neural Sleeve, she couldn’t walk 50 feet and experienced periods of remissions, as well as stages where she relied on a walker, cane, and wheelchair. It was a rollercoaster ride for about eight to ten years. Her doctor even thought that within the first three to five years of her MS diagnosis, she would be in a wheelchair permanently. Her quality of life was limited. She had to cook sitting down and could stand for about 15 minutes before needing a break. She couldn’t take socks out of the dryer or go for walks outside of her house on the mountains alone. Ever since she started using the Cionic Neural Sleeve, she instantly saw a difference. She notes that she was “astounded by how well [I] was walking.” The Cionic Neural Sleeve has restored her ability to do many everyday things, including taking clothes out of the dryer, going for walks, taking vacations, climbing lighthouses and seeing friends and family. She even notes that she is better now than she was ten years ago. She describes the experience as “a perfect storm in a good way.” Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

Bitcoin and Ethereum's Massive Growth Echoes; The Graph & Rebel Satoshi See Surge in Investor Interest

RoundHouse Media

The giants Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) are once again creating ripples reminiscent of their historic growth patterns. Recent research reports by Coinbase Research and Glassnode reveal a staggering similarity between the current market conditions and the period from 2018 to 2022. During this timeframe, Bitcoin witnessed a remarkable surge of 500%, while Ethereum soared by an astonishing 1,000%. Parallel Patterns and Market Cycles Analysts are pointing to various cyclicality metrics, such as net unrealized profit/loss and supply in profit, to draw parallels between the ongoing crypto market cycle and the preceding ones. These metrics indicate that the current state of the crypto markets is not exhibiting the euphoria witnessed at the peak of 2023. Instead, it suggests that there might be further potential for significant market surges. Despite the optimism surrounding the forthcoming Bitcoin halving, Coinbase Research remains cautious. The paper notes a lack of robust supporting evidence and characterizes the relationship between the halving and market performance as somewhat speculative. This cautious stance reflects a commitment to thorough analysis and a recognition of the unpredictable nature of the crypto market. Ethereum's Triumph and Upcoming Upgrade In 2023, Ethereum experienced a surge of over 90%, attributed to factors such as the success of the Shapella upgrade and the increasing likelihood of approval for spot crypto ETFs. Market participants were quick to embrace these developments, contributing to the notable increase in Ethereum's value. Analysts are now setting their sights on the upcoming Ethereum upgrade named Cancun. Expected to enhance scalability and security, the upgrade aims to make layer-2 transactions as cost-effective as possible. The successful implementation of Cancun could potentially lead to a significant increase in the number of processed transactions on the Ethereum network. The Graph (GRT): A Rising Star Amidst the buzz surrounding the top crypto coins, The Graph (GRT) emerges as a rising star. With its focus on decentralized data indexing and query protocol for the Web3 ecosystem, The Graph has garnered increased attention from investors. As a decentralized oracle, The Graph provides a bridge between smart contracts and off-chain data, contributing to the efficiency and functionality of decentralized applications (DApps). Investors eyeing altcoins to watch have turned their attention to The Graph for its innovative approach to data organization and retrieval within the blockchain space. As the crypto market continues to evolve, The Graph stands as a notable player with the potential for significant growth. Rebel Satoshi Emerges in the Crypto Scene Amidst the buzz surrounding the top crypto coins, a new player has entered the scene—Rebel Satoshi ($RBLZ). Offering a unique proposition, Rebel Satoshi allows users to explore 9,999 unique NFTs, creating a vibrant marketplace for exclusive digital art and collectibles. Investors in Rebel Satoshi not only have the opportunity to explore unique assets representing Rebel Satoshi and other characters but also stand a chance to be featured in the Rebel Meme Hall of Fame. The Rebel Satoshi ecosystem provides exclusive benefits, including staking rewards and active participation in voting, reinforcing the sense of community among investors. Currently in Monarchs Round 4 of its presale, each $RBLZ token is available at $0.0224. Upon the official launch of Rebel Satoshi, the token is anticipated to trade at $0.024. Early investors stand to gain over 180% returns, while those from Monarchs Round 4 can expect at least a 50.8% return on investment. Rebel Satoshi Presale: A Crypto Milestone With over 105 million $RBLZ tokens already sold, Rebel Satoshi has achieved a significant milestone by raising over $1.5 million in token sales. As the project gears up for another presale stage, where tokens will be priced at $0.024 each, investors are presented with a prime opportunity to join the Rebel Satoshi community.

Scar Smart is a proven silicone-based scar revision product line that will expand Skintensive’s product offering of functional skincare solutions. "We initially developed the Skintensive Bruise Cream to address acute and chronic bruising and solar purpura that is exceedingly common in our patients,” said Dr. Mikailov. “Those same patients also need options for the prevention and improvement of scars on their fragile skin. Now, the patients who trust our Skintensive brand will have access to an incredible product that dermatologists have recommended for many years." The Skintensive brand is carried by numerous board-certified dermatologist offices in the United States and will be exhibited at the 2024 American Academy of Dermatology conference in San Diego from March 7th through the 11th.

About the Author Tech entrepreneur and CEO Dean Guida knows there’s a limit to what you can build with grit alone. At sixteen, Dean bought the first IBM PC and fell in love with writing software. He went on to receive a bachelor of science degree in operation research from the University of Miami. After graduating, he was a freelance developer and wrote many systems for IBM and on Wall Street. At twenty-three, he started Infragistics to build UX/UI tools for professional software developers. Seemingly overnight, Dean had to go from early internet coder to business operator—a feat that forced him to learn some of business’s biggest lessons on the job. He immediately began navigating the nuances of scaling a company, hiring and growing teams, and becoming a leader, a manager, and a mentor. Dean’s tech company now has operations in six countries. More than two million developers use Infragistics software, and its client roster boasts 100 percent of the S&P 500, including Fidelity, Morgan Stanley, Exxon, Intuit, and Bank of America.
