Playpal Partners with Smart City AG to Welcome You to a Smarter Tomorrow

To bring its global vision of sustainable health, Playpal just announced its upcoming research pilot with one of its very first partners: Smart City AG.

ENGLEWOOD, CO, UNITED STATES, December 12, 2019 / — As the average lifespan expands, the probability of minor issues developing into chronic conditions increases. Longevity has placed a significant burden on traditional healthcare, which is geared to treat patients only after the onset of symptoms. In these situations, the symptoms develop well past the point of being handled via benign interventions. While the health industry has undergone significant technological revolutions – with EHRs, EMRs, mHealth apps, fitness wearables, and health IoTs taking the industry by storm – the market remains uni-dimensional and fragmented. Healthcare systems must shift away from the disease model and move toward a health model where the goal of living a better quality life is as important as the treatment of diseases and ailments. That is where Playpal comes in, a digital web and mobile platform on a mission to create an all-encompassing gamified ecosystem of proactive health management.

To bring its global vision of sustainable health to fruition, Playpal just announced its upcoming research pilot with one of its very first partners: Smart City AG.

SC+PP = Smart Health:The Salutogenic Approach

With a vision to achieve a sustainable future through the use of modern technologies, the forward-thinking Smart City Team has proposed a thesis that addresses all three dimensions of the individual – dimensions which one must be aware of in order to achieve the best health state/well-being. They are as follows: a) biological (the internal dimension), b) psychological (the internal dimension), and c) sociological (the external dimension). With the salutogenic approach to health, both Teams are now exploring how core beliefs and bodily processes interact with one another and how diseases emerge as conflicted epigenetics. The idea is to narrow in on a disease-case that can be piloted in an existing smart city, tie both Teams’ rewards mechanisms together, explore the impact of different environments on one's health and wellbeing, and to become the leading and joint-authority on holistic health.

With Smart City AG’s ever-connected, energy-efficient smart cities and Playpal’s AI-driven gamified health platform, there is a wealth of opportunity to educate the pilot participants on the importance of collecting behavioral and health data so that they are always ‘doctor ready” when – and if – a health issue manifests. It is expensive to cure a disease but an investment to engage in proactive health management; as both parties move forward to define the scope of their research project, this paradigm toward health is expected to strengthen. As 2019 nears its end, 2020 holds the promise of the “Smart Health” pilot. So stay tuned and join the Smart City and Playpal communities for latest updates!


Playpal is a digital web and mobile platform on a mission to create an all-encompassing gamified health ecosystem that 1) integrates with any and all health IOT devices, sensors, and apps (including games!), 2) offers a customized health profile and AI-driven predictive analyses, and 3) incentivizes you with real-world rewards via a digital health currency. Our Platform gives users an advanced health profile and preventative health analyses by tracking their physical and cognitive data from various third party integrations. We combine this analysis with our patented Health Score to guide users towards better health and to incentivise them with real-world rewards. Our vision of health reverses institution-driven health by placing the focus on the individual.

Drug-Eluting Balloon Market Grow at a CAGR of 15.6% During the Forecast Period 2019 to 2027

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, December 12, 2019 / — Organic and inorganic growth strategies were observed in the global drug-eluting balloon industry. Whereas, organic growth strategies were carried out largely in the drug-eluting balloon market. For instance, in December 2019, Philips has launched two new balloons to its Stellarex 0.035” low-dose drug-coated balloon (DCB) portfolio for the treatment of de novo and restenotic lesions in native superficial femoral or popliteal arteries, both arteries in the upper leg. Thus, expansion of the product portfolio is enabling to grow the company’s offering in the drug-eluting balloons and further enabling to grow its position in the global market.

The global drug-eluting balloon market accounted to US$ 516.65 Mn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.6% during the forecast period 2019 – 2027, to account for US$ 1,870.60 Mn by 2027.

The drug-eluting balloon market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing market. The drug-eluting balloons market is expected to be held largely by China. The market in China is expected to grow due to rising numbers of clinical trials and rising approvals for the drug-eluting balloons. The market is expected to be the fastest-growing in countries such as Japan and India. The market is expected to be the fastest-growing due to the expansion of foreign companies in these countries.

Key Company Profiles Drug-Eluting Balloon Market:-

Koninklijke Philips N.V., Concept Medical Inc., Opto Circuits (India) Limited (Eurocor Tech GmbH), Terumo Corporation, BIOTRONIK SE & Co. KG, Innvolution Healthcare Pvt. Ltd., Medtronic plc, BD, Boston Scientific Corporation, Cook Medical, B. Braun Melsungen AG,

Market Insights:

Significantly Rising Vascular Disease Incidences:-

Drug-eluting balloons are an emerging technology that has enabled to treat various chronic conditions, such as cardiovascular conditions and peripheral vascular diseases. Innovations in medical interventions, through advanced products and technologies, have eased the treatment of blood vessel blockages. The rising incidences of cardiovascular, peripheral vascular, and neurovascular diseases, among others, is a major factor driving the drug-eluting balloons market. For instance, cardiovascular diseases are growing drastically across the world. The various factors such as obesity, less physical activities, increased stress, and a shift in the lifestyle has resulted in the growing incidence of cardiovascular diseases.

Factors such as growing obesity incidence, diminished physical activities, increased stress, and shifting lifestyle have resulted in the rise in incidences of cardiovascular diseases. According to a report by the American College of Cardiology February 2019, cardiovascular diseases are the primary cause of death in the US. In 2016, the US registered 635,260 deaths caused by cardiovascular conditions. In addition, the report also mentions the decrease of 31.8% in deaths caused by coronary heart diseases from 2006 to 2016. Thus, the use of drug-eluting balloons has helped to treat people with cardiovascular conditions. Similarly, according to the statistics published by the WHO in May 2017, cardiovascular conditions are the cause of numerous deaths in the world, and there is a significant rise in the incidence of vascular diseases worldwide. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year, ~1–2 persons per 1,000 people are affected by deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the US. Such escalating incidences of vascular diseases are likely to further increase the demand for drug-eluting balloons in the coming years.

Rising Use of Drug-eluting Balloons Over Drug-Eluting Stents:-

Drug-eluting balloons show various advantages over the drug-eluting stents. The balloons are developed with long-awaited new transcatheter technologies that have shown promising factors to reduce high restenosis rates in peripheral artery diseases.

Therefore, the drug-eluting balloons are enabled with various developments that are not available with the drug-eluting stents. For instance, drug delivery through the balloon does not require polymer or stent to deliver drugs, and can reduce the vascular inflammatory response. The responses are further directly related to very late thrombosis events, whereas drug-eluting stents require polymer-based drug coatings.

The other advantages of the DEB include faster delivery of drug kinetics to the vessel, and the intima is within 30–60 seconds of balloon inflation. Whereas, the drug delivery through DES is slow and have controlled the release of drug kinetics to block cell proliferation. Thus, the advantages of DEB over the DES are expected to increase the adoption of drug-eluting balloons in the coming years.

Product Type Insights:-

The global drug-eluting balloon market by product type segments was led by peripheral drug-eluting balloons. In 2018, the peripheral drug-eluting balloons segment accounted for the largest market share in the global drug-eluting balloons market. The growth of the peripheral drug-eluting balloons segment is expected to grow due to rising approvals for the drug-eluting balloons by the FDA and EU to various companies. Also, rising incidences of peripheral artery diseases are likely to help in the growth of the demand for the product.

Jay Grossman, L.A.’s Celebrity Dentist, to Raise Money for Veteran and Foster Youth Dental Care

Dr. Jay Grossman

Concierge Dentistry

Dr. Jay Grossman and his Concierge Dentistry team’s goal has always been simple, to deliver the finest dental care available.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 / — Tongue Health. You brush and floss twice a day, or at least I hope you do, but you could be doing your mouth a disservice if you aren't also attacking the bacteria living on your tongue.

Whether it's to fight bad breath or just for good dental health, cleaning your tongue is important. What exactly makes the tongue a prime location for a bacteria block party? It’s the papillae, tiny bumps and grooves on the tongue, which everyone has, and it often captures food particles that rot away resulting in bad breath (halitosis). So this muscle must be cleaned in addition to your teeth and gums.

The ADA recommends brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes each. During this process, you should also lightly brush your tongue – and a tongue scrapper is the best option. I prefer the stainless steal type, which you can sterilize in the dishwasher!

Technique: Brush the scraper from the back of your tongue to the front, rinsing off residue as it builds up on the scraper. Once you've scraped your tongue, rinse your mouth with mouthwash to get rid of any loose residue. Be sure to clean your tongue once or twice per day with your regular brushing schedule

Additional ways to help our Veterans and foster youth:
Whiten your teeth in an hour: Donate a minimum of $200 to HNT (which provides free dental care to veterans and foster children) and we will whiten your teeth for FREE as a thank you. Offer open to all, regardless if you are a patient of record.

Educator Dr. Myra L. Weiger to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

IRVINGTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 / — A teacher must have imagination and creativity.

An expert in English and speech therapy, Dr. Myra B. Weiger spent 55 years as an educator.

“I cared very much about people and seeing them succeed,” says Dr. Weiger. “I loved teaching, I loved those kids. I've never forgotten them. I thought of them as my children, every one, wherever they came from.

Dr. Weiger began her professional career as an English teacher with the Irvington Board of Education in 1956, later joining Gary Public Schools as a speech therapist from 1956 to 1957 and teacher of the deaf from 1957 to 1959. Dr. Weiger served Kean University from 1964 for 49 years as a professor and Chair of the Dept. of Elementary, Middle, and Secondary Education and Educational Administration

“We need really humane people working who care, because it takes finding the right way to teach,” says Dr. Weiger. “You have to reach them in order to teach them, and each student can be reached in different ways. I didn't see my students as kids who were disabled. If you can get them laughing and show them you care, they can succeed.

Dr. Weiger says is very concerned about the current generation and sees real flaws in the new approach to educating students with special needs.

“The old classes used to have a mixture of everybody. We didn't segregate them so much. I never I felt I was responsible for improving the lives of the bright kids because they were working at it. They didn't even need me.”

“Everyone learned the material in their own way and contributed in their own way by working in groups. They would produce something among themselves, and the whole project would be beautiful, and they were friends with one another, whatever their ability level. They learned how to work together. Do we have that today? I'm hopeful that we can include the new things with some of the old things. To combine the best of both worlds would be wonderful.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Myra L. Weiger in an interview with Jim Masters on December 12th at 1pm EST.

Dr Samareh Lajaunias, Director at Combioxin Speaking at SMi's 22nd Annual Superbugs & Superdrugs Conference

Superbugs & Superdrugs 2020

Superbugs & Superdrugs 2020

SMi Reports: Dr Samareh Lajaunias, Director at Combioxin will be speaking at SMi's 22nd Annual Superbugs & Superdrugs Conference in London in March 2020

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, December 11, 2019 / — The 22nd Annual Superbugs & Superdrugs Conference will convene on 30th and 31st March 2020 in London. The conference will concentrate on novel drugs and approaches, highlighting non-traditional and traditional therapies that provide an innovative means to tackle the continued rise of antibiotic resistance, while placing significant emphasis on the much-needed support for these innovations.

Ahead of the event, SMi caught up with Combioxin SA’s Director, Dr. Samareh Azeredo da Silveira Lajaunias to discuss her views and expectations on Superbugs & Superdrugs.

Dr. Samareh Lajaunias is specialized in delivering the value of breakthrough biomedical innovations coming from research institutes. Since 2015, she is an executive officer at Combioxin SA and is responsible for the development CAL02, the company’s lead product. Samareh also holds a Ph.D. from the EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Snapshot of Samareh’s interview:

What do you see as the greatest challenge for you to overcome personally in the field now?
“Skeptics are the greatest challenge: those who wish to solely rely on MIC and models validated for antibiotics, those who exclusively search for antibiotics with no cross-resistance to existing therapies, those who would rather rely on existing regulatory guidelines aiming at non-inferiority instead of striving for new ones focusing on relevant clinical benefit, those who discourage investors from supporting the field.”

How would you like to see the market developing in the future and where do you think the biggest growth area will be in 2020?
“Combioxin is developing an approach which does not add to the resistance burden, which is active irrespective of existing resistance, and which facilitates the eradication of resistant microbes by hampering their spread and by acting as a shield for the immune system. We will do our best in 2020 to contribute to a shift in paradigm: implementation of “push” and “pull” incentives on the antibiotics front, together with out-and-out support for “non-antibiotic” agents which hold promise to dramatically improve patients’ fate and which fight resistance.”

The full interview, agenda and speaker line-up brochure is available to download online at

For those interested in attending, there is an early bird offer with a £200 saving for bookings made by 13th December 2019, visit to register.

Author Ken Ungerecht to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

NORTHOME, MINNESOTA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 / — If you really contemplate the whole universe, you might feel very insignificant, but each of us is a descendant of the stars. We're all created from a source.

Ken Ungerecht is the author of Divine Principles, which explores the harmony of science and spirituality.

“Science is about “how.” Spirituality is the domain of “why,” says Ken. “I don't think science and spirituality are necessarily at odds with each other. In fact, they're totally in harmony; they complement each other, And both are necessary to live a full life.”

Ken spent 30 years as an engineer in electronic communications. Along the way he discovered his true passion: seeking an understanding of our amazing universe through a determined and systematic search for Universal Truth.

“Even as a scientist, I can acknowledge that I didn't get here by chance,” says Ken. “There was a planning involved. Once I came to that realization, I knew that it was going to be something that I was going to pursue as much as I could.”

Just as there are physical laws to our universe like gravity, Ken believes our universe is supported by important spiritual principles.

“There are answers that are beyond all of us or any of us at this point in time, so what are things that we can know for sure? These are the fundamental ideas we can build on and that is the approach that I take to the book and I identify what I consider to be two important principles of spiritual truth.

The essence of who we really are, cannot possibly be dependent on the body that we're currently living in,” says Ken. In other words, we have to exist independent of that body, which means we had to exist prior to the creation of this body, and we will continue to exist after this body wears out.

The science Ken uses to prove his theories is remarkably straightforward; you don't have to be a scientist to understand it.

“Our main purposes is to bring out our divine nature as much as we can to keep growing,” says Ken. “One of the many gifts that we have received from our creator is the gift of choice. By choosing responses that are in harmony with the universe, we enjoy better outcomes. I personally believe that life exists for us to learn how to have fun.

CUTV News Radio will feature Ken Ungerecht in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on December 13th at 11am EST.
