Deep Sea Love

Deep Sea Love

My scuba diving experience at the Great Barrier Reef was a pretty awesome one; the guys strapped me up in a wetsuit with all this heavy gear and I had a fascinating dive. If there is one thing that I would like to change about it, then it has to be the dive goggles. I have a high prescription number and the scuba gear usually comes generic numbers to the glasses. ‘Control Your Sight’ are goggles that feature number customization.

IV Made Easy

IV Made Easy

However useful, IV units can and do become dangerous when neglected. In serious cases, the back-flow of blood from gravity can cause tremendous pain, phlebitis and bruising. With a little help from tablet tech, the E-Drip Stand aims to heighten awareness of each individual IV. The stand itself detects the weight of the bag and relays real-time status to the caretaker’s smart device, also alerting when it’s time to change bags. Rooms and patients are easily identified via a graphic map on the screen, making the nurse rounds more efficient and effective.
