Health 2.0 Fall Conference: SleepTech Summit Exhibit Hall Companies

A unique track at this year’s Health 2.0 Fall Conference is a SleepTech Summit focusing on innovations that enhance or improve a person’s ability to achieve a quicker, longer, and more refreshing sleep. As part of the main exhibit hall, six sleep-related companies were demoing their devices and technologies, and Medgadget had a chance to hold short interviews with each one. In addition to these six technology companies, Sleep-Geek was also in attendance. Sleep-Geek is a website and online community founded in 2010 with a mission to serve the mattress industry by connecting members with ideas that serve their professional goals. Powered by Leggett &Platt, Sleep-Geek believes that sleep industry professionals should take the time to be sleep consultants to their clients by advising them on their sleep and well-being. Now onto the interviews! Medgadget: Which of ASTI’s technologies are you showing at Health 2.0? Stacey Pinneke, Director of Marketing and Communications, Adaptive Sound Technology, Inc (ASTI): We have a number of devices here including the LectraFan, LectroFan micro, and ASTI’s original Sound+Sleep and Sound+Sleep SE devices.

Lectro Fan, an Amazon best-selling product, produces consistent white noise that the user can focus on without distraction in order to fall...

In addition, hormonal therapy can interfere with bone me...

Now that the holiday season is around the corner, and we are preoccupied with stress, family life, and work balance, the last thing we need to exert our energy on is shopping for holiday gifts for our loved ones, and close friends. Below is a psychological guide to help you realize that the art of gifting should be a simple one at best — straight from the heart and with no fuss or commotion. If done correctly, and in the right way, you — the giver — and the receiver will feel truly at ease, and genuinely appreciative regardless of the amount of money you spent. It’s not the gift, but the thought th...

Authors: Phillips PK, Caldis MW, Hristov AD, Lee AS, Lucey MR Abstract The manufacture and consumption of alcohol are ubiquitous and as old as time. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is defined as a problematic pattern of alcohol use leading to clinically significant impairment. The physical injuries that result from excessive alcohol consumption are varied including end-organ damage to liver (alcohol-associated liver disease or ALD), pancreas, brain and heart, and systemic consequences including several forms of cancer. Liver transplantation (LT) remains the treatment of last resort for life-threatening liver disease. LT...

Conclusions: Reward-dependence and self-transcendence scores were significantly lower in patients with MOH than in those with EM. These results suggest that people with lower reward-dependence and self-transcendence scores may not adequately respond to prescribed medications, leading them to the frequent use of multiple drugs at higher doses. A multidisciplinary approach to management may be suggested for migraine patients, and it is reasonable to consider behavioral therapy in conjunction with pharmacotherapy to ameliorate comorbid conditions.
