Aquarium Software suggest that holidaymakers should not fall into the convenience trap; and recommends travellers fully research the insurance market in advance, not just in order to save money, but just as importantly, to make sure the correct cover is purchased.
(PRWEB) January 01, 2018
In light of an increasing number of consumers being tempted into ticking the box to add travel insurance to their online flight or holiday booking, new industry research has found that customers will potentially pay three times more than a stand-alone travel insurance. This has led travel insurance technology specialist, Aquarium Software, to suggest that holidaymakers should not fall into the convenience trap; Aquarium recommends travellers fully research the insurance market in advance, not just in order to save money, but just as importantly, to make sure the correct cover is purchased.
Research suggests that specifically, consumers may pay up to 205 percent more for travel insurance cover bought through an airline or holiday booking site, compared to an online travel insurance specialist. “It is on the one hand encouraging that there is an increased take up of travel insurance with online bookings," said Aquarium Software Director, Mark Colonnese. “However many consumer purchases when spontaneously made, are not necessarily the best fit and you could get better if you shopped around. The key things to look at, especially if traveling abroad for winter sports, is to make sure the main things that might happen while you are away, are in fact covered."
“If you are skiing or snowboarding, it’s essential to make sure these activities are not in fact exclusions in the small print. Likewise, if you are travelling to the US or Canada and the small print only covers you for the UK and Europe, you’ll get a nasty shock if you try and claim later. Even the definition of Europe can catch people out, so if skiing for example in Romania or Norway, you may not be covered. Many of us like a gluvine or two on a trip, however even this could cause your travel insurance to be voided if the insurer considers you have had one drink too many. There is no substitute for having adequate travel insurance when you need it, and whilst a bore, there’s no real shortcut to getting the right policy other than doing a bit of research in advance,” concluded Colonnese.
Aquarium Software is used by a number of travel insurers; pet insurers; and other consumer service providers and affinity partners in the UK, Europe, USA and Canada. For further information contact Aquarium Software on +44 (0)161 927 5620 or visit http://www.aquarium-software.com

This is a world premiere: thanks to Dibotics’ know-how in LiDAR data processing and an integrated special infrared transparent glass conceived by AGC Automotive the first LiDAR solution inside the vehicle has been developed.The innovation will be presented in the DIBOTICS booth and its LiDAR partners’, during next CES at Las Vegas (9th-12th Jan).
PARIS (PRWEB) January 02, 2018
There are several reasons why seamless integration of LiDAR inside the vehicle is a major step for industry:
As automotive glass manufacturer leader, AGC Automotive has created a dedicated entity, totally devoted to autonomous vehicles and LiDAR integration: WIDEYE.
“The ecosystem of autonomous vehicles deserves all our attention and a dedicated service to face new challenges” said Michel Meyers, Mobility Business Development Office Director – AGC Automotive Europe. “Automotive infrared transparent glass and LiDAR integration with Dibotics are a real breakthrough. This presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is the first step of our commitment to autonomous vehicle revolution.”
As partners, AGC AUTOMOTIVE and DIBOTICS share the same vision of autonomous vehicles: both are device agnostic and can work with every type of LiDAR sensor. Both companies strongly believe that LiDAR will be the key enabler for Autonomous Vehicles, combined with other sensors to provide maximum safety to drivers. They are both also fully convinced that design will remain a main topic and a powerful trigger for autonomous vehicles adoption.
“As a pioneer in real-time processing of LiDAR data, hearing that something is not possible with LiDAR motivates us to push even further and open new possibilities. We found the same innovation spirit in the AGC Automotive and Wideye teams and we’re delighted to have contributed to this major breakthrough for Autonomous Driving”, said Raul Bravo, CEO of DIBOTICS. “We’re sure that LiDAR manufacturers, OEMs and Tiers1 will highly appreciate the potential of this innovation”.
After multiple tests and glass prototypes production, Dibotics and AGC AUTOMOTIVE’s products & services are ready for scale-up and will be presented to the Consumer Electronic Show CES in Las Vegas, JAN 9-12, 2018 in the DIBOTICS’ Booth (BUSINESS FRANCE AutoTech PAVILION – CP 5 – CENTRAL PLAZA) and their main LiDAR partners’.
Dibotics is a Paris-based company offering innovation in real-time LiDAR processing. Founded in 2015 by Raul Bravo and Olivier Garcia, two serial entrepreneurs with extensive experience of 15 years in LiDAR processing for mobile robotics applications, Dibotics has an original approach that differs from the traditional solutions. Its sensor-agnostic 3D SLAM technology (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) and Augmented LiDAR™ created the first solution allowing advanced features like point-wise classification, objects detection & tracking and calibration-less Sensor Fusion to be performed only based on the sensor data itself. All of this performs without requiring any learning (deterministic) and can be embedded in a small and low-power integrated circuit (SLAM on Chip™).

Orthopedic Spine Surgeon Dr. Kingsley R. Chin of The LESS Institute completed his latest three level ACDF case in a noteworthy hour and five minutes.
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (PRWEB) January 02, 2018
Professor of The LESS Institute & Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Kingsley R. Chin completed his latest three level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) case on an obese patient in an hour and five minutes, with less than 25CC blood loss. Dr. Chin has done many of his ACDF cases with fluoroscopy and many without, and is preparing the clinical data for publication on his results. The patient was a 32 year old female with chronic unremitting neck pain with radiculopathy to the upper limbs who failed conservative treatment. Pre-operative MRI scans showed herniated discs with spinal stenosis at levels C4-5, C5-6 and C6-7 with anterolisthesis at level C4-5. Intra-op and post-op fluoroscopy confirmed surgical levels and implant alignment, respectively. Dr. Chin performs one level cases in less than 30 minutes and two levels in 45.
Dr. Chin commented on the milestone procedure, stating, “With Less Exposure Surgery (LES®) techniques, we are able to complete surgeries faster, safer - and patients are doing much better. I am amazed that we can consistently perform ACDF at this rate. I was blessed to be trained by Dr. Henry H. Bohlman, who I consider to be the best surgeon ever to do ACDF. I give a lot of credit to the engineering around LES technology, which is the best in class."
A non fluoroscopy procedure is beneficial in less radiation, less time in surgery and in lowering the risk of contaminating the surgical field. LES technology is an advancement to minimally invasive surgery (MIS), designed with outpatient surgery in mind for quick recovery.
About The LESS Institute
The Less Exposure Surgery Specialists (LESS) Institute is an academic center of excellence which provides outpatient treatment for spine and orthopedics. The LESS Institute’s mission is to tailor treatment to each patient, to pinpoint the problem, fix it and let the patient go home the same day to recover quickly. Founded by Harvard-trained, Orthopedic Spine Surgeon & Professor Dr. Kingsley R. Chin, the Institute is based on a new philosophy of LES, utilizing the least invasive techniques and technologies to achieve the best and most efficient outcomes.

"It's easy to recognize true innovation" as a theme for 2018 to help CPA candidates better understand adaptive platform differences.
DEVON, Pa. (PRWEB) January 02, 2018
In a newly launched marketing campaign, Surgent CPA Review highlights how its innovative adaptive technology is a truly differentiated platform in the CPA Review market.
Surgent’s proprietary A.S.A.P. Technology generates personalized study plans tailored to each student’s unique needs. The study plans are determined based on real-time algorithms that continuously adapt the course based on student performance. The adaptive technology identifies what the student knows and does not know as he or she studies. The study program adapts in real time, producing study material aimed at improving the student’s weaker areas. As the student progresses, the adaptive technology computes a trending score that allows the student to better asses his or her relative preparedness for the CPA Exam. The result: Surgent students now have pass rates that are nearly double the national average while saving up to 400 hours of study time.
“We decided to launch this ad campaign in an effort to help students better understand adaptive technology and its benefits,” states Evan Kramer, CEO of Surgent CPA Review. “The market has utilized the term ‘adaptive’ in many ways, but very few of the platforms marked as ‘adaptive’ are truly adaptive. It is important to know what you are buying. Surgent’s platform is based on real-time algorithms and produces a completely personalized learning experience. This makes it the only true adaptive platform on the market.”
The first series of ads address this point directly, stating “It’s easy to recognize true innovation” and depicting a self-driving car vis-à-vis a ridiculous and dangerous-looking homemade vehicle.
Surgent CPA Review knows that doing things “the old way” will produce the same outcome: over-studying and lower pass rates (the national average is less than 50%). In addition to an adaptive learning approach, Surgent offers transparent feedback by giving students their Trending Score, an indicator of readiness that can be viewed either by topic or overall. Thanks to this stand-out feature, students no longer need to guess when they’re ready to take the exam. Those with a Trending Score of 75% see a pass rate of 89.7%, while students with a Trending Score of 85% or above pass nearly 100% of the time. The correlation between Trending Scores and test results serve to prove that the algorithm is, in-fact, successful.
Cited as one of the best CPA Exam review course providers on the market, Surgent continues to focus on innovation to retain its position as a leading exam review provider. It’s 2018, after all, a time when innovation and technology are vital in a more efficient and effective exam review experience.
While a young company, Surgent CPA Review founders are no strangers to the accounting or education spaces. The company was born out of Surgent, a 30-year leader in tax, accounting, and finance professional education. Since Surgent CPA Review’s launch in August of 2015, the company has quickly become the fastest-growing exam prep course in the industry. Its trademark A.S.A.P Technology delivers an algorithmic-based adaptive learning experience that is targeted to an individual’s unique areas of need. Surgent students save up to 400 hours of study time, and achieve pass rates that are nearly double the national average.

An expanded jury, a new look and new categories are taking IDEA into the new year.
HERNDON, Va. (PRWEB) January 02, 2018
The International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA)®, presented by the Industrial Designers Society of America, is open for entries through March 19, 2018 with an expanded jury, a new look and some new categories. "One of the world's most prestigious and rigorous design competitions is moving into its 38th year—revitalized and energized," declares IDEA 2018 Jury Chair Michael Kahwaji, IDSA, of Whirlpool Corp.
The jury features nearly three dozen experts from some of the world’s largest brands such as Google, Microsoft, Nike, Delta Faucet, REI, Targus, Stryker and Cartoon Network; major design studios including Whipsaw, fuseproject, Ammunition, HS Design and Metaphase; and leading universities. Bringing a global perspective, jurors originally hail from countries such as Canada, China, Germany, Guatemala, New Zealand, Nigeria, United Kingdom and the United States. Some are former IDEA winners who know just what it takes to get to the top.
“We have curated a design jury with a well-balanced demographic," says Kahwaji, who also serves on the MFA Advisory Council at the College for Creative Studies and as an adjunct design instructor at the University of Notre Dame. "I’m proud to announce this year’s jury includes 12 women, as well as experts in branding, service design and graphic design. This will enable IDEA to truly reflect the multidisciplinary facet of the competition.”
Recently, the program has undergone major changes including the redesign of its trophies with the help of fuseproject—the design studio founded by longtime IDSA member Yves Béhar. “For anyone who is a maker, who is building something, it’s the ultimate achievement to win an IDEA,” says Behar. “IDEA is the award by designers, for designers. Fuseproject worked with IDSA to rebrand IDEA and redesign the trophy to reflect the evolving industry it celebrates.”
For 2018, the 20 IDEA categories include three new ones: Home, now including Kitchen; Furniture & Lightning, including Outdoor Furniture; and Lifestyle & Accessories. In 2017, two new categories were added: Branding and Consumer Technology.

Physician-led group investment paves the way to transforming how total joint replacements are performed.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) January 02, 2018
AngelMD, a platform that connects medial startups with doctors that provide guidance and investors that provide funding, today announced that its group of physician and investor members has completed a funding round for Articulus Bio, LLC. Articulus Bio is a seed-stage orthopedic medical device company focused on total ankle replacement (TAR). The (patent-pending) Articulus Bio technology takes a unique engineering approach toward solving the problems behind the majority of total joint replacement failures.
While total joint replacement surgeries are seen as a rousing success in the world of orthopedics, they are not without their own issues. Approximately one million hip and knee replacement procedures are performed each year and as many as 50,000 of these cases will likely fail within 10 years. Ankle joint failure rates are considerably more prevalent than the hip and knee, and some ankle devices may have failure rates as high as 40 percent within five to ten years.
The first area of focus for Articulus Bio is to address the wear debris issue -- either metal on metal or metal on plastic -- caused by friction occurring at the articulating faces of joint surfaces. These wear particles circulate through the body and often cause an immunological response known as osteolysis. The debris “eats away” where the implant junction interfaces with the body, causing a loosening of the implant that ultimately leads to the need for a revision surgery.
“It has been a privilege to collaborate with AngelMD on advancing our Tendonoid™ Web Joint technology," said Adam Rubenstein, CEO of Articulus Bio. "Our mission is to improve outcomes and quality of life for total joint replacement patients. That requires access to capital, but for us, it's just as essential to engage the intellectual and technical horsepower of the orthopedic surgeon community to help guide our development. AngelMD played an invaluable role in facilitating these pivotal relationships for us while assisting raising the capital we needed.”
While the Articulus Bio team remains focused on the development of their TAR product, the company has a parallel goal of deploying their platform-based Tendonoid™ Web Joint System across a host of large and small joint sites. The technology utilizes a novel configuration of the previously FDA approved Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) biomaterial spun into the Tendonoid Web Joint System structure. The Tendonoid Web Joint System is designed to reduce/eliminate friction/grinding at the articulating joint faces that are observed in prior generations of devices. When the friction/grinding is reduced/eliminated, so too is the wear debris.
"In conversations with physicians and industry experts focused on Total Ankle Replacements, the feedback on the design of this new generation of TAR shows potential for a substantial leap forward in improving patient outcomes and reducing complication,” said Mark Mescher, Sr. Vice President of Professional Relations for AngelMD.
The team is raising capital in order to address specific seed-stage milestones that, on the other side of completion, will inject material value into the company. First they will capture performance data of the Tendonoid™ sub-assembly components. Second, they will prepare and submit a Q-Sub meeting package to FDA and receive regulatory pathway guidance from the agency. Finally, they will continue to build out their intellectual property portfolio.
The goal of Articulus Bio, as the future takes shape, is to take what the company learns from their TAR cases and apply it to many other large and small joints throughout the body. This should allow for total joint replacement surgeries, without the risk of wear debris, to become as commonplace as those performed on hips.
AngelMD is an investment and networking platform connecting innovative medical startups, physicians, investors, and industry partners. Leading physicians from all over the US have joined AngelMD to help source, evaluate and advise companies in biotechnology, medical device, and healthcare technology.
