IR-Med, Inc.

Rosh Pinna, Israel, August 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (“IR-MED or the “Company”) (OTCQB:IRME)an innovative medical device company that develops non-invasive real-time sensing devices using infrared (IR) light spectroscopy and artificial intelligence (AI) for use by healthcare professionals, announced that its subsidiary in 100% IR-Med has signed an agreement with Bina Industrial Design Ltd, an industrial design company based in Israel, for the commercial design of the Pressure Safe device. IR Med’s Pressure Safe device is being developed for the detection and classification of pressure injuries at an early stage.

The agreement will cover the design of the Pressure Safe device in its advanced configuration, which incorporates preliminary results from a usability study currently underway in Israel, including feedback from healthcare professionals.

Bina Industrial Design Ltd is a small industrial design company specializing in the design of medical devices and diagnostic products serving a wide range of companies including large multinationals.

Pressure Safe uses spectrographic analysis and several other proprietary technologies combined with AI capabilities for early detection of pressure injuries. The device is intended to allow healthcare professionals to quickly identify conditions invisible to the naked eye (passing under the skin) regardless of skin tone and which may lead to pressure injuries.

PI is a major challenge for healthcare providers across the world. Failure to identify and treat is life-threatening, with approximately 60,000 deaths from PI in the United States each year. A study published in 2019 measured the total cost of acute care attributable to hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPI) for the entire United States at more than $26.8 billion (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/iwj.13071). NPs remain a concern for hospital quality in addition to being a major source of economic burden for the US healthcare system. It is expected that hospitals will need to invest more in improving the quality of early detection and care for NPs to avoid higher costs. In many countries, including the United States, hospitals and nursing homes are penalized for failing to prevent PIs while patients are in their care, including no reimbursement for the cost of treating PIs. IP.

Yoram Drucker, Vice President, Business Development and Director, stated that “the agreement with the industrial design company is another step in advancing the development of the Pressure Safe device. Bina Industrial Design brings many years of experience in designing commercial-grade medical devices and we hope their efforts will help IR-MED bring to market the optimal device for detecting pressure injuries at an early stage.

About IR-MED

IR-MED Inc., develops a technological platform for non-invasive spectrographic analysis, allowing healthcare professionals to detect and measure different molecules in blood and human tissues in real time without any invasive procedure. The first product under development is a wearable optical monitoring device that is developed to support the early detection of pressure injuries (PI) to the skin and underlying tissues, regardless of skin tone and who is personally calibrated for each patient’s body. (Personalised medical device for equal treatment)

IR-MED technology enables high-accuracy biomarker readings in a non-invasive method, which can provide the caregiver with the optimal decision support system in cases where uncertainties confuse physicians in their decision-making processes.

IR-MED holds patents protecting its innovation in non-invasive tissue analysis, as well as in the modeling and analysis of subepidermal tissues.

Color blocking is an activity primarily associated with fashion that rose to prominence in the 60s, but over time it seeped into the realm of commercial interior design. In a nutshell, color blocking is all about using colors in the right way to add to the beauty and aesthetic appeal of a person or place and with color blocking, interior designers commercial have borrowed one of the most alluring trends to increase the appeal of office spaces.

Colors are currently being used much more expressively, independent of traditional color harmonies and rules and using a variety of “strong, “bright” and “unrelated” colors on clothing, furniture, interiors, exteriors , ceremonies and the like, artists and designers appear to be breaking color boundaries more than ever.Others refer to this activity as color blogging while many refer to it as color blocking and due to its relative popularity , we use the term “color blocking”.

Many interior designers are opting for color blocking as a way to create stunning interior spaces – they are experimenting with color blocking which can be visually soothing and comfortable. Color blocking is a key trend in the world of interior design and offers a variety of imaginable combinations, from contrasting hues to abstract shapes and in addition to radiating warmth and joy, a room decorated with bright colors and patterns geometric shapes also bring order and structure.

In 2022, Millennials and Gen Z employees weren’t keen on working in offices with drab interiors and that’s where innovative color blocking when designing commercial interiors is useful because they help you with dynamic themes that positively influence the engagement of employees working in the company. , which is a must in the new normal. Just like a logo, slogan and other branding elements, color blocking helps give a unique visual character to the brand you are working on commercial interiors.

In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Kunal Sharma, Founder and CEO of Flipspaces, explained, “Using colors in line with the brand’s personality increases its recall value and extends its presence in a spatial form. Especially in the case of designing commercial spaces that are frequently visited by clients and customers, using the right theme and colors enhances the brand association. With the current scenario in commercial offices where online meetings are the norm, it can also be used as a brilliant subtle color for your video conferencing backgrounds and chat areas. While adopting color blocking for commercial spaces, it is prudent to use complementary colors that are not too strong unless the client specifically requests it.

He suggested, “From pairing dark blue chairs with white tables to pairing earthy brown floors with peach walls, color blocking can be used to give your workplace a defined look and feel. . Walls can take up the most space in a room, so it’s essential to make sure you consider all the space and use color blocking on the floor, furniture, lights, ceilings, etc. ., without overdoing it. Staying subtle and minimal in your approach while designing commercial interiors also totally enhances the overall appeal of the space.

According to Nihal Kalra, CEO and co-founder of The Décor Kart, “To give structure to a room, geometric shapes and a range of colors can be used in interior design. At the head of the bedroom, a turquoise arch topped with a yellow circle provides a great backdrop for the cabinet. Pastel colors are another popular option with strong hues. A trendy overall look is achieved by finding a balanced mix of different colors and shapes. For this reason, the adage “less is more” also applies to color blocking.

Kirsty Shearer, Director of Development at Agility Solutions, looks at how we can shape the sustainable future of commercial design

There’s no escaping the fact that sustainability has indeed found its way to the boardroom table recently – but is the notion of sustainability a long-held principle that’s here to stay, or just a another company buzzword?

The architecture and construction industry is not alone in its attempt to minimize humanity’s impact on the environment, but we are uniquely positioned to play a part in creating a sustainable future for generations to come – with efficiency and moderation in the supply chain, use of materials, and employees are at the heart of its success.

Although initial thoughts may shift to Building Information Modeling (BIM) as the obvious solution, thanks to its ability to collect data throughout the project lifecycle, enabling faster, safer and less costly construction. . This, coupled with more profitable and sustainable operations, is a great place to start.

But our attention should not stop there.

When considering sustainability in the built environment, it is important to look beyond the physical elements of construction and consider how we create commercial spaces that fit the bill in terms of function, form, longevity and well-being.

By striving to create developments that not only create a better future for the client, the building and its occupants, it is also possible to play a part in protecting the future of our planet.

Sustainable supply chain in construction

Of course, the ability to develop a sustainable design solution will never be as strong as those who define the brief, outline the budget and make the final decisions. But as net zero ambitions make their way onto corporate agendas; it is the collective responsibility of everyone who operates in the built environment to be that “critical friend” and challenge a case if there is a way to make a project more sustainable.

That’s why, rather than adding such sentiment as a ‘nice to have’, there should be a sustainability goal set from the start – with all parties buying into the strategy and the logic behind it. tends. And it must be revisited, tweaked and mentioned throughout the deployment of the project.

Of course, that’s in an ideal world. But a good place to start is to advocate for responsible sourcing of materials and labor – and preferably, locally. Canceling the requirement to ship supplies across vast oceans in a bid to reduce costs will help reduce emissions associated with “carrying” infrastructure to site, but also means that any issues of product can also be corrected quickly.

With a huge pool of contractors to choose from – in most places – it pays to be picky. In addition to seeking endorsement from “happy customers,” also look for proven green credentials, especially around recycling, travel, and the company’s own purchases.

Naturally, there will always be cases where a development is driven entirely by budget and ambition – rather than the longer-term implications of design – or where it is simply impossible to source property from another way.

But, even if you’re surrounded by people for whom building ethics is at the very bottom of the pile, it’s still possible to make a difference. Examine your own carbon footprint, implement changes if necessary and be sure to highlight your own “green credentials” as part of any offer.

Sustainability is not limited to bricks and mortar

When considering durability in commercial interiors, it is also important to look beyond the physical elements of construction. The past two years have given workers a “reset” when it comes to where they do their work – and office space needs to be responsive to the needs and wants of those who use it.

While the overnight shift to working from home in 2020 marked the start of a complete shake-up of the business landscape, it has forced employees to also think about what they want from their careers – as well as the where they want their workspace to be.

The ambition to curate holistic design is on the rise – and nowhere more in evidence than in the office environment. From quiet zones for focused work to chill-out zones that mimic the comforts of home, the new era of the workplace brings with it a very different set of quirks.

While not an approach that works for all businesses, many organizations have realized the need to deliver sustainable solutions not just in a brick-and-mortar sense, but through attitudes. and the environment they provide to their colleagues.

Integrate sustainability into your HR and operational strategies

Going back to an earlier point about sustainability being more than just an attempt to become net zero carbon, we should remember that colleagues expect the companies they work for to also show their commitments. green in all facets of corporate behavior.

Including a nod to sustainability in your company’s value proposition should hopefully be a no-brainer – but bringing them to life rests solely on the shoulders of the people who live and breathe them. Therefore, it’s essential to build your recruiting strategy around a desire to collaborate with like-minded people.

Business leaders shouldn’t just look to fill vacancies with people with the right qualifications, experience or background – there are plenty of capable project managers, architects and developers out there. Instead, make it a priority to employ rounded people who are open-minded to bring something new to the table and drive positive change.

By looking for talent that truly embraces the opportunity to push boundaries, while challenging clients to truly think about how they intend to use a space, it’s possible to start making meaningful change.

However, simply recruiting someone based on their “green” interests is not the start and stop point of investing. Providing ongoing training on what it means to be sustainable for colleagues – perhaps through DPC-accredited courses – will pay long-term dividends.

Paperless offices are nothing new, but the technology has enabled many architecture, design and construction firms to maintain a semblance of “business as usual” during the height of the pandemic.

Replacing lengthy proposal documents with concise PDFs, adopting 360-degree photographic reports, and implementing virtual tours and transfers are all solutions that are here to stay. And, to go further in terms of operations, consider the potential for using green energy to heat offices, reduce non-essential travel and offset the environmental cost of travel – both within and outside the country. ‘foreigner. This can be done through initiatives that help plant trees around the world – like TravelPerk – alongside a sustainability “code of conduct” to ensure everyone meets company commitments.

Of course, as a global population – not to mention an industry – we still have a long way to go. But as the people behind buildings that might outlive us all, it’s our responsibility to create them with a strong future in mind.

To button or not to button? Which button(s) to close? How many millimeters of sleeve should show? With its many rules, classic menswear can seem quite serious and humorless – but not when seen through the eyes of fashion illustrator and artist Fei Wang. He is also known as Mr Slowboy, the name of the main character who appears in his work and is modeled after himself.

Based in the UK with his wife, baby daughter and a cat named Fatty, the Beijing-born artist recently published his first book, Mr. Slowboy. Published by Hong Kong-based Victionary, it features 142 delightful illustrations by Wang, including personal pieces and commercial work for classic brands such as Barbour, Drake’s, Dunhill and Lock & Co Hatters. Dressed in dapper styles with an impressive level of detail – thousands of tiny squiggles depict the fuzziness of wool, for example – the men of Wang’s world go about their daily lives in light-hearted, humorous scenes.

A 2018 illustration for Drake’s, titled Like father, like son, features a father and son, both well-dressed and scruffy, returning home feeling broke while carrying a newly purchased chess set and game console, respectively. Reflecting the work-from-home (WFH) paradigm caused by the pandemic, a personal work from 2020 sees Mr. Slowboy dressed in a variety of stylish striped pajamas and steaming slippers, with the occasional pot on his head.

A PERSONAL TAKE

Login with The top via video from his home in north London, the 41-year-old shares: ‘For me it was like putting on a little exhibition in book form. This is an archive of my development. As befits his alias, Wang has a relaxed demeanor and an unhurried manner of speaking. But this does not in any way translate into negligence. For our interview, he swapped his WFH-ready loungewear for a slightly dressier ensemble “to maintain some formality”: a Brooks Brothers striped shirt topped with a light yellow wool cardigan by Drake. Even though his lower half is out of sight, he tells us he’s wearing corduroy pants and knee-high socks.

Mr. Slowboy first appeared on Chinese tech platform WeChat in June 2015, months before Wang moved to London. At the time, he was still living and working in Beijing, where he served as art and creative director at OgilvyOne Beijing for 11 years. Reflecting on why he started sharing his style-centric illustrations online, he says, “The idea was to share style tips with my friends. I never thought it would reach a wider audience. It was quite casual and personal. I think that’s one of the reasons people loved him. It’s not like a textbook, but like a friend sharing ideas.

Wang’s interest in art began at a young age. As a child, he studied Chinese painting. At 12, he took part in a competition where he was one of those selected to tour abroad to present traditional art. Stops included Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Singapore.

A few years later, he returned to our shores to complete a three-year degree course in graphic design at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, followed by an additional year of study in 2006 to obtain his Bachelor of Arts. Wang has “many vivid memories” of his time in Singapore, including those of a particularly strict lecturer who would throw unsatisfactory assignments out the window. With a smile, he says, “Looking back, I really appreciate (her thoroughness) because she taught me to focus on the details. Wang also holds an MA in Illustration from Camberwell College of Arts in London.

OLD MEETS NEW

Used in tandem, Wang’s background in fine art and her professional background in graphic design and advertising result in a unique and timeless style. He does all of his work by hand, using mediums such as colored pencils, watercolors and gouache. His sensitivity to detail is informed by his experience in classical Indian miniature painting, where tiny accents and outlines are rendered by a single-haired squirrel brush. His approach to composition and the abundance of white space in his works are influenced by Chinese painting.

Ukiyo-e, the art of Japanese prints dating from the beginning of the 17th century, also makes its presence felt in his work. The triptych has three panels that can be sold alone or together, and was a popular format in ukiyo-e. Wang uses it in a variety of jobs, including one for traditional outerwear specialist Mackintosh. The horizontal image comprises three panels, each depicting Mr. Slowboy battling the wind and rain while dressed in different Mackintosh coats.

It’s a format that’s finding new relevance in our digital age. On the Mackintosh website, the triptych presented itself as a single image perfectly adapted to the required dimensions. On the brand’s Instagram account, the three panels appeared as individual images, but in the same row, like a veritable triptych. What’s new and what’s old? What is fine art and what is commercial design? These are questions that Wang will continue to explore as he shifts his artistic focus from a business orientation to a more personal one.

He thinks: “Fine art can be fun; it doesn’t have to be stereotyped. It can be ironic, and it can be about fashion. That’s what I try to do.

We’re incredibly happy with the end result, and it’s a testament to the creative, careful, and thoughtful work of the Framework team. The final headquarters space is 14,000 square feet and is located at 440 E. St. Elmo Rd., Building D. Project construction was completed in late November 2021.
