National Aviation Academy (NAA) and Cape Air today announce the implementation of a Preferred Hiring Pathway designed to give NAA graduates priority access to new-hire technician positions. The Preferred Hiring Pathway is intended to assist NAA and Cape Air in the selection, training and education of potential new-hire aviation maintenance technicians (AMTs). AMTs keep aircraft in safe flying condition by servicing, repairing and overhauling aircraft and aircraft components while following detailed federal regulations set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). AMTs are in high demand as the industry expands and technicians age out of the aviation workforce. Technicians selected for Cape Air’s Preferred Hiring Path program will be of the highest quality, demonstrating the skills, knowledge, personal and professional qualifications to perform as an airline maintenance member. Students from both NAA locations (New England and Tampa Bay) may apply. Candidates who wish to participate in the Preferred Hiring Pathway must: Students who are successfully admitted to the program will have the opportunity to enhance their personal and professional growth by attending job shadowing events at Cape Air maintenance bases in Hyannis and Boston while attending NAA. “We’re excited to team up with National Aviation Academy on the Preferred Pathway program,” said Jeff Schafer, Managing Director of Technical Operations for Cape Air. “Establishing a partnership such as this will provide tremendous opportunities for Cape Air, NAA and most importantly, the students.” After the successful completion of NAA’s combined airframe and powerplant curriculum, candidates within the Preferred Hiring Pathway may qualify for a final interview for employment. Hiring from the pathway will assist Cape Air in meeting the demand for qualified aviation maintenance technicians. “Any opportunity that benefits NAA students and an industry partner like Cape Air is one that we want to approach with enthusiasm and dedication,” said David Mead, Senior Executive Vice President for NAA. “The student experience is designed to mirror best practices within the aviation industry, and the Preferred Hiring Pathway will give individuals an even greater ability to prepare for their desired careers while at NAA.” NAA incorporates the latest technology and industry resources to deliver high quality aviation maintenance training. Partnering with Cape Air will strengthen NAA’s ability to achieve its mission of preparing students for employment in the aviation industry.

When a person loses a hand to amputation, nerves that control sensation and movement are severed, causing dramatic changes in areas of the brain that controlled these functions. As a result, areas of the brain devoted to the missing hand take on other functions. Now, researchers from the University of Missouri have found evidence of specific neurochemical changes associated with lower neuronal health in these brain regions. Further, they report that some of these changes in the brain may persist in individuals who receive hand transplants, despite their recovered hand function. "When there is a sudden increase or decrease in stimulation that the brain receives, the function and structure of the brain begins to change," said Carmen M. Cirstea, M.D., Ph.D., research assistant professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and lead author of the study. "Using a noninvasive approach known as magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) to examine areas of the brain previously involved with hand function, we observed the types of changes taking place at the neurochemical level after amputation, transplantation or reattachment." Cirstea, with co-author Scott Frey, Ph.D., the Miller Family Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience in the Departments of Psychological Sciences and Neurology, used MRS to evaluate the neuronal health and function of nerve cells of current hand amputees, former amputees and healthy subjects. The researchers instructed volunteers to flex their fingers to activate sensorimotor areas in both sides of the brain. The research team then analyzed N-acetylaspartate (NAA) levels, a chemical associated with neuronal health. The researchers found that NAA values for the reattachment and transplant patients were similar to levels of amputees and significantly lower than the healthy control group. "Previous research has found substantial reorganizational changes in the brain following limb injuries that decrease sensory and motor stimulation following limb injuries," Frey said. "These findings show that after surgical repairs, the effects of nerve injuries on the mature brain may continue even as former amputees recover varying degrees of sensory and motor functions in replanted or transplanted hands." Due to the small number of reattachment and transplant patients studied (5), the researchers said that the results should be interpreted with caution until more work is completed.

Bask Technology, Inc., the leading remote home technical support service, is announcing a new Community Partnership Program designed for 55+ apartments and communities. The program includes unlimited phone and chat technical support for residents, on-site events or one-on-one coaching sessions, leasing or main office tech support, and router management. The program may be billed as full community coverage, an added amenity, or direct-to-resident. Bask community ambassadors have conducted one-on-one sessions and other events at approximately 30 communities in Utah and Texas, which have ranged from one to 40 attendees each, but plan on extending their services to other U.S. states based on demand. “Our program helps residents feel empowered to use the devices and technology around them,” explained Justin Jones, the Director of Outside Sales. “I recently helped an elderly resident who received a new tablet from her grandchildren, but hadn’t even signed into it.” Not everyone needs a how to or a quick fix. Some residents seek assistance from Bask to learn new tricks or master a skill. “We’re seeing that more seniors that we’re getting in now are a little more tech savvy than they were 14 years ago,” explained Jennifer Simons, the community manager for Coventry Cove, which is the first senior living community to partner with Bask. “So many have smartphones and tablets- they would come to me for that kind of help.” According the study ‘Can ICT improve the quality of life of elderly adults living in residential home care units? From actual impacts to hidden artifacts’ (Behaviour & Information Technology, 2013), easy access to email, online leisure games and journaling increases the health and social happiness in seniors. “The study shows that on a personal level, technology increases both the self-esteem and self-confidence of the residents. More interestingly, perhaps, the experiment also prompted the individuals to play a greater role in social activities where they helped and supported one another,” explained ScienceDaily. This is the first major onsite program the company has offered, as most work is done remotely through screen sharing software. “These visits are a huge opportunity for us to hear what technology pains people have, which we can then integrate into the services we offer,” explained Jones. “[The residents] really look forward to the visits and the help from Bask,” said Simons. Bask joined the Utah Apartment Association and National Apartment Association earlier this year and is scheduled to attend the 2017 NAA Education Conference & Exposition, June 21-24, in Atlanta. To discuss a Bask Community Outreach Program for your residents, please contact Justin Jones at (385) 335-0124 or Justin.Jones(at)bask(dot)com. About Bask Technology, Inc. Bask offers more than technical support, they provide people support. The company empowers its members to embrace new technology and stay protected from threats to their privacy and personal data by combining top-rated software with advice and solutions from an all U.S.-based team of Technology Advisors.

Two Studies Presented at DDW 2017 Showed Clinically Meaningful Reduction in Symptoms and Withdrawal or Reduction in Proton Pump Inhibitor Use by Two-Thirds of Patients Following Treatment with MUSE™ System Separate Presentation Supports HOF Criteria as a Potential Endoscopic Selection Criteria to Predict Amount of Reflux and Improve Treatment Outcomes OMER, ISRAEL--(Marketwired - May 9, 2017) - Medigus Ltd. ( : MDGS) ( : MDGS), a medical device company developing minimally invasive endosurgical tools and a leader in direct visualization technology, today announced results from three clinical studies involving the company's MUSE™ System, a minimally invasive solution for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The data were presented in three posters at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW), taking place in Chicago from May 6-9, 2017. The MUSE system is a single-use flexible transoral stapler that merges the latest advancements in microvisual, ultrasonic and surgical stapling. The device comes equipped with an ultrasonic sight and range finder and a micro ScoutCam™ CMOS camera, which enables a single physician to perform an incisionless transoral fundoplication -- the procedure is intended to treat the anatomical cause of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), commonly known as acid reflux. Giorgia Mazzoleni, fellow at the San Raffaele Scientific Institute at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, Italy, presented a poster entitled, "Transoral Anterior Fundoplication (TAF) with Medigus Ultrasound Surgical Endostapler (MUSE™) for the Treatment of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD); 6-Month Results from a Single-Center Prospective Study," which enrolled 24 GERD patients to assess the six-month safety and efficacy of TAF with MUSE. GERD quality of life questionnaires (HRQL) improved from a baseline of 43 to 18 six months after TAF with MUSE (p < 0.003). The study also highlighted an improvement in Reflux Symptom Index (RSI), from 21 to 10 (p < 0.009). A 79% reduction or withdrawal in PPI therapy was observed six-months after treatment, with 50% of patients stopping PPI use, 28.6% of patients halving PPI use, and 21.4% remaining on the same dose prior to treatment with TAF with MUSE. Dr. Ali Lankarani, board member of the Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy Center (ATEC) at the Broland-Groover Clinic in Jacksonville, FL, presented a poster titled, "Interim Results From A Multi-Center Post-Marketing Surveillance Registry Study for Endoscopic Anterior Fundoplication," reported data from an ongoing post-market registry study of 68 GERD patients who underwent Endoscopic Anterior Fundoplication (EAF) in 13 international centers. GERD-HRQL improved from 24.0 to 6.0 following treatment with MUSE (CI, 13.4 - 20.8, p < 0.00001), demonstrating patients experienced a clinically meaningful reduction in GERD-related symptoms. In addition, baseline patient satisfaction was reported at 0%, but improved to 70% (26/37) at 6 months and 90% (9/10) at 1 year. Of note, 76% (28/37; p < 0.00001) of patients have eliminated or reduced their use of proton pump inhibitors (PPI), with 96% of patients that responded favorably to treatment with the MUSE System stopping daily PPI therapy. Dr. Lankarani remarked, "These interim results, in conjunction with the data from the single-center study presented by Mazzoleni, highlight how the MUSE System can be a revolutionary, minimally-invasive treatment option for patients with GERD who are unsatisfied with PPI therapeutics and hesitant to pursue surgical intervention. In addition to the impressive findings, in another study we were able to access the value of the HOF criteria over the Hill classification, which we believe will play a pivotal role alongside the MUSE System in improving overall treatment outcomes in GERD." In addition, Dr. Lankarani presented a second poster, entitled, "Endoscopic Predictors of Decreased Reflux After Endoscopic Anterior Fundoplasty," which evaluated the HOF criteria as an endoscopic grading system of gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) geometry, as well as selection criteria to guide treatment decisions and predict treatment outcomes. Currently, Hill classification is the most commonly used criteria for antireflux procedures, however it has limited utility and still results in one-third of EAF-treated patients to continue experiencing reflux. HOF criteria categorizes GEJ geometry based on measurement of axial length of hiatal hernia (H), hiatus opening dimension (O) and flap valve size (F), with H and O openings less than 1cm considered normal (N) and 1cm or larger categorized as abnormal (A). GEJ is categorized as AAA if all three HOF landmarks are abnormal, NAA if one HOF landmark is normal and two are abnormal, and NNN if all three HOF landmarks are normal. Using the HOF criteria, the researchers identified and successfully treated 18 GERD patients, with Total Present of Time spent in Reflux (TPTR) showing a reduction in all patients with NAA configuration, and 75% and 71% TPTR reduction in individuals that had a 1 and 2 cm hiatal hernia, respectively. Average TPTR improvement was 53% for the NAA configuration patients, while average TPTR improvement in patients with 1 and 2 cm hiatal hernia was 56% and 46%, respectively. Chris Rowland, Chief Executive Officer of Medigus, commented, "As the developers of a completely new, minimally invasive solution for the treatment of GERD, we are extremely motivated by data presented this year at DDW. We are pleased with the results reported from the single center study, and look forward to continuing the ongoing post-market multi-center study, which have shown promising reductions in PPI reliance, as well as increases in patient quality of life and satisfaction. These studies continue to support the use of our MUSE System, which can reduce the need for pharmaceuticals and invasive surgical procedures." To learn more about MUSE, visit: www.medigus.com Medigus is a medical device company specializing in developing minimally invasive endosurgical tools and highly innovative imaging solutions. They are the pioneer developer of the MUSE™ system, an FDA cleared and CE marked endoscopic device to perform Transoral Fundoplication (TF) for the treatment of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), one of the most common chronic conditions in the world. In 2016, the CMS established the Category I CPT® Code of 43210 for TF procedures, such as the ones performed with MUSE, which establishes reimbursement values for physicians and hospitals. MUSE is gaining adoption in key markets around the world -- it is available in world-leading healthcare institutions in the U.S., Europe and Israel.

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Statement from the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and National Apartment Association (NAA) following President Trump’s Address to a Joint Session of Congress: “We support President Trump’s efforts to strengthen economic growth and expand job creation. As the industry that houses 39 million residents, supports over 12 million jobs and contributes $1.3 trillion to the economy, the President’s direct focus on issues of critical importance to the apartment industry such as tax reform, infrastructure investment and rolling back burdensome regulations is commendable. “Today, there are over 43 million renter households and Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies believes that demand for renter households could increase by as much as 4.4 million by 2025. The multifamily sector is under increasing pressure to meet that booming demand across the country, yet, excessive regulation and compliance uncertainty results in costly mandates that make it impossible to develop and operate multifamily housing. “NMHC/NAA applaud the Administration’s efforts to overhaul the federal regulatory landscape. To that end, we look forward to working with the Trump Administration and leaders in Congress to develop policies that drive investment, spark development and remove barriers and remove burdens on current operators, supporting the future growth of the apartment industry.” More information about apartments is available at www.weareapartments.org.
