PENTAX Medical – Helping Raise Awareness of Endoscopy

Health and Medical

HOYA Corporation believes that practicing corporate responsibility in day-to-day activities leads to a sustainable society and environment. In addition, they continuously strive to be responsible corporate citizens by taking on global social activities that closely connect to their industry.

PENTAX Medical is a division of HOYA Corporation that conducts a unique CSR activity to raise awareness of the value of endoscopy. Endoscopy can be used for early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of gastroenterological diseases. PENTAX Medical has created a unique lecture for the Tokyo Metropolitan Tama Science and Technology High School on this project.

This project invited 21 students in the 2nd grade to explore the R & D center in PENTAX Medical’s Singapore Office and Singapore General Hospital. Dr. Ken Ohata, Senior Chief Doctor of Gastroenterology at NTT Medical Center in Tokyo, Japan conducted a hands-on endoscopy training with the students. The 21 students had a chance to observe the endoscopy rooms and learn how to operate endoscopes with training models. Their highlights of the tour were seeing the actual clinical site where the largest numbers of Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection procedures in the world occur.

The students learned that therapies leaned towards patient-friendly, minimally invasive endoscopic procedures. Dr. Ken Ohata, known as “The God’s Hand”, met the students and explained his policy of training endoscopists to increase ESD knowledge, a practice that saves lives not only in Japan but also in Russia and China. The children also experienced how team medicine is practiced throughout the hospital alongside state-of-the-art medicine and cutting-edge technologies. Learning that the endoscopes developed in Japan are contributing to saving lives around the world was especially exciting for them.

The last day, the group visited the Pentax medical facilities in Singapore PTE. Jimmy Kewalramani, VP, Marketing, APAC presented about the endoscopy market landscape in Asia and how the APAC Team work together. After the office tour, they visited Singapore General Hospital, the largest hospital in Asia with over 200 years’ history.

PENTAX Medical hope this story raises awareness of the value of early detection, diagnosis and treatment realized with medical endoscopes. For more information, visit pentaxmedical.com.

This Fall iOS 10 Will Help You Easily Register to be an Organ Donor

By: Kassidy Coleman


With September just around the corner, Apple users are eagerly waiting to see what new features iOS 10 will bring to the iPhone. Last month at WWDC, we were given announcements that made us excited for iOS 10 to be introduced to the public, including iOS 10 being more outsider-friendly. Now, Apple has announced that they will be making it easier than ever to register to be a national organ donor right from the Health app on your iPhone.

 
Apple has partnered up with Donate Life America and announced that with iOS 10 in the Health app, users will be able to quickly and easily register to be an organ donor. Once you register to become a donor, it will be sent directly to the National Donate Life Registry.


Apple stated
, “over 120,000 Americans are currently waiting for a lifesaving transplant – and every ten minutes, a new individual is added to the national transplant waiting list. Each organ donor can save as many as eight lives and heal many more through the gifts of tissue and eye donation. In the absence of donor registration, families are left to make the decision about donation in what is often the worst moment of their lives, the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one.”

 

The shortage of organ donations has been a rising issue in the United States. CEO Tim Cook told Associated Press that the problem really hit home when his good friend and boss, Steve Jobs, had an “excruciating” wait for his liver transplant back in 2009. Jobs passed away two years after he received the transplant that extended his life, due to complications from pancreatic cancer.

 

The updated Health app will help users become educated and aware of the importance of organ donations, while also providing health and fitness information.

Live Cell Encapsulation

There are a handful of illnesses in this world that we are still working towards creating a cure for.

Nothing but time and money has gone into finding a cure for several diseases such as cancer and diabetes. Though there have been a plenty of steps in the right direction, there is still work that needs to be done in order to find a cure that will bring a complete end to these life altering illnesses. PharmaCyte Biotech is a clinical stage biotechnology company that focuses on developing treatments for both cancer and diabetes based on a revolutionary live-cell encapsulation technology known as Cell In A Box.

Cell in a Box encapsulates genetically modified cells to convert a chemotherapy drug into its cancer-killing form or to encapsulate genetically modified cells that produce insulin when a patient’s pancreas isn’t working properly. The cells that will be encapsulated in PharmaCyte Biotech’s technology have shown in preclinical studies that they can end diabetes. By encapsulating those cells in Cell in a Box, PharmaCyte may be able to create an artificial pancreas.

Ashley Black

No one likes cellulite. No one. So Ashley Black, health and beauty genius, developed the Fascia Blaster to end cellulite. If you look at the picture above, the Fascia Blaster is a pole with several little massagers. These massagers loosen the fascia (connective tissue), making the skin much smoother. This happens because when there is little blood flow when the fascia is tight. So the Fascia Blaster opens and loosens the fascia, delivering oxygen and nutrients to cells. The Fascia Blaster was originally only available to celebrities, athletes, billionaires, and influencers, but it’s now available for purchase online.

Learn more about the Fascia Blaster by watching our video review below.
