The Next Consortium of ITRI launches ‘RoboScooter’

The Next Consortium of ITRI launches ‘RoboScooter’

Sunday, May 11, 2008

At the Pavilion of Taiwan Automotive Research Consortium during the AutoTronics Taipei 2008, in Taipei Time, the Next Consortium of Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) unveiled a brand-new environmental-concept vehicle named “RoboScooter”. It was jointly designed by the Creativity Lab of ITRI, SYM Motors, and the Media Lab of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This announcement was approved by industrial, governmental, and academical executives, but not just in Taiwan.

The ability for R&D to manufacture the electronic vehicles and bicycles was concerning to several automobile-related industries. There was concern not only from several trade shows, but also international competitions related to the design after winning several prizes back in Taiwan to establish the industrial position and brand image of “Made in Taiwan”. Since several industries like automobile are transformed to high-value industries, “creativity” progressively became a key element before unveiling any new products.

As of this sector, Wen-jean Hsueh (ITRI Creativity Lab General Director) hoped companies could do proper transformations on its R&D nature from “Made in Taiwan” to “Created in Taiwan” for best practice. This not only echoed “OBM” theory discussed at 2007 Taiwan Brands’ Trend Forum but also blended with a key element of production – “creativity”.

On the other side of SYM Motors, to solve the transportation problem for TWTC Nangang, SYM Motors Taiwan imported manufacturing technology from Kinglong Bus Co., Ltd. to manufacture several 4th-cycle low floor buses and sell them to Chung-hsing Bus Co., Ltd. and Kwang-huang Bus Co., Ltd. In this launch, the SYM Motors Taiwan hope this vehicle is energy-efficiency, easily-parked, and has creative functions which can improve the transportation habits of individuals.

Tina Allen, LMT, CIIT, CIMI

To a child who has been hospitalized, or diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition, their symptoms are often accompanied by pain, anxiety, loneliness and fear. So it only makes sense that healthcare staff and medical facilities are looking to pediatric massage as treatment for some of these symptoms.

Research has shown that massage therapy can ease both physical symptoms as well as, emotional discomforts associated with pediatric medical conditions. Studies conducted by the Touch Research Institutes at the University of Miami School of Medicine show that massage can alleviate pain, anxiety and depression in pediatric clients. This therapeutic touch provides relaxation, comfort, reduction of stress hormones and relief from chronic conditions such as nausea, asthma, constipation and muscle aches.

Immediately after receiving massage, children with mild to moderate juvenile rheumatoid arthritis notice decreased anxiety and stress hormone (cortisol) levels. For young patients with Autism their aversion to touch decreases with massage, while their ability to focus increases. Pediatric patients with cystic fibrosis report feeling less anxious, and their ability to breathe and pulmonary functions improved.

For the massage therapist or healthcare professional considering pediatric massage, there are many considerations to prepare for providing age specific and development appropriate therapy. Additional professional training in pediatric massage is a necessity to feel confident working with children within medical facilities.

Some initial adaptations in your practice will become helpful, as you consider pursuing pediatric massage. The following five “P’s” are the keys to successful therapeutic massage sessions for both pediatric patient and practitioner.

Permission should always be obtained from the child. Within the confines of hospital walls, it is not always possible for a child to agree to or refuse treatment. Empowering the child to have a voice in their medical care is possible through the use of massage therapy.

Before any touch therapy session with a pediatric patient, you must receive approval from their attending physician to ensure the child’s safety. Never perform massage therapy for a pediatric patient prior to receiving medical consent to do so. Some medical conditions carry contraindications to touch therapy. It is always best to receive medical advisement prior to each and every session, in case of any medical changes.


Keep in mind that therapeutic touch sessions with children are often much shorter than those with adult clients. Even children who are healthy and well have much shorter attention spans and tolerance to therapeutic touch. As a therapist performing this type of treatment, you may only provide therapy for 15-20 minutes for younger patients. You may find that with some diagnosis, massage therapy may be recommended more than one time per day.


Pediatric massage is adapted for each individual client on a specific case by case basis. With each child it is important to build a rapport and trust in your professional relationship. Allow children to know they can direct the amount of pressure used during the massage. And also be prepared for the child to test out the control they have in directing the amount of pressure used during the session. The child must know they can trust you, so it is important that you listen to their requests. Once they trust you, they can relax and just feel the many benefits of the massage.

The very experience of having some control over their bodies becomes more important for children who are chronically ill or hospitalized. For these children, their day-to-day existent in the hospital is full of experiences of adults doing things to them, sometimes painful and uncomfortable, without their permission. It is very empowering for a child to have the ability to direct their therapeutic session, and at times even refuse it.


Some chronically ill children are confined to their hospital bed, while others may be in a wheelchair or have the ability to move from their bed with ease. It is important to be flexible and adapt to a changing variety of scenarios. Practice different positions including supported side lying, supine, and semi-reclined. These three positions seem to work very well, as you can keep eye contact and notice any facial gestures your young client may make which would alert you of any discomfort. Of course, it is always possible to provide massage in other positions as well, such as sitting in a wheelchair, standing, or lying in another position that is more comfortable for them. The important key is placing your hands on the child in a way that they feel most comfortable. This will increase the therapeutic and relaxing benefits or your time together.


To many pediatric patients and their families, pediatric massage is often seen as the medicine they need to heal, so it becomes more important to consider including parents in your sessions. You can’t provide therapy for the child everyday, so teaching the parents some techniques will be helpful in encouraging this healthy bond between parent and child. Additionally, many parents feel helpless within the medical system. Passing along something they can use will help them to feel calm and relaxed as well, which will translate to the young client.

As you begin your massage session it is helpful to remind the parent that your focus will be on the child during the session. Let them know you will be happy to answer any of their questions at the end of the therapeutic treatment. Show parents some simple techniques to help them relax, such as taking some deep breaths or rolling their shoulders. Explain the importance of relaxing prior to touching their child. Then show them some simple techniques they can use without harming their child.

China leads medal race after day two of competition at London Paralympics

China leads medal race after day two of competition at London Paralympics

Saturday, September 1, 2012

London, England — Following the second full day of competition at the 2012 Summer Paralympics, China leads the medal race with 13 gold medals and 34 medals in total. Australia comes second with 7 gold, and the Ukraine is third with 6 gold medals.

China’s large medal haul was distributed across several sports, with 15 from swimming, 5 each from athletics and track cycling, 4 from judo, 3 from powerlifting, 2 from shooting.

Australia’s first medal of the Games was won in women’s standing air rifle shooting event where Natalie Smith captured a bronze medal during the first medal event of the Games. One of Australia’s bronze medals came in athletics’ F35–36 shot put event. Kath Proudfoot originally was listed as finishing fifth, but the Australians appealed this citing errors in how her results were calculated. Their appeal was successful, and Proudfoot came away with her second consecutive Paralympic medal in the event.

Over half the medals won by the United States came in swimming, with 7 total. The country has earned an additional 3 in track cycling and 1 in athletics.

A number of competitors have already earned multiple medals, including Australia’s Jacqueline Freney and Matthew Cowdrey, and the United States’s Jessica Long and Elizabeth Stone who all picked up a pair of medals in the pool.

Woman in Buffalo, New York accidentally sets herself on fire

Woman in Buffalo, New York accidentally sets herself on fire

Tuesday, January 22, 2008

Buffalo, New York — A woman in Buffalo, New York in the United States is in critical condition tonight at Sisters Of Charity Hospital after she accidentally set herself on fire.

The unnamed elderly woman was receiving oxygen for medical problems in her home and lit a cigarette, and the oxygen coming from her mask facilitated the ignition of her clothing, setting her on fire.

Despite her “severe” burns as described by firefighters on radio communications, she was still able to dial the emergency line in the U.S., 911.

In the U.S. only 4% of all residential fires were reportedly caused by smoking materials in 2002. These fires, however, were responsible for 19% of residential fire fatalities and 9% of injuries. The fatality rate due to smoking is nearly four times higher than the overall residential fire rate; injuries are more than twice as likely. Forty percent of all smoking fires start in the bedroom or living room/family room; in 35% of these fires, bedding or upholstered furniture are the items first ignited.

Algerian teen falls to death in Mecca; rape, murder suspected

Algerian teen falls to death in Mecca; rape, murder suspected

Friday, September 17, 2010

Rape and murder are suspected after a 15-year-old girl fell to her death from a hotel in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Police yesterday announced that they have arrested four men over her death, suspecting that she fell from her balcony after she was either pushed or jumped trying to escape being raped.

The young woman had arrived in Mecca from her home in Marseille, France to undertake the pilgrimage of Umrah. She was staying in Al-Ghazzah District’s Al-Muhajireen Hotel, which is close to the Masjid al-Haram (or “Grand Mosque”), along with her Algerian mother, French father and seven-year-old brother.

She landed on the roof of a neighbouring hotel, where she struck and slightly injured two Bangladeshi men working there. She had been missing since 9 p.m. local time on Tuesday, and was due to leave on Wednesday morning, when she died. Following the death, around 300 fellow Algerian Muslim pilgrims closed down the road past the hotel in protest, seeking an audience with their ambassador and prosecutions for the suspected offences.

Mecca Police director Brigadier General Ibrahim Al-Hamzi sent security teams to negotiate with the crowds. After three hours, the road was reopened. Police spokesman Major Abdul Mohsin Al-Maiman says criminal investigators and a forensics expert have examined the body and four workers at the Al-Muhajireen Hotel have been arrested; two Yemeni men and two Bangladeshi men.

The Saudi Gazette reports on anonymous sources claiming that the Yemenis should not have been in the country and were working illegaly. The Gazette also reported on allegations that one suspect has admitted entering a relationship with the girl, but not the source of this information. The suspects were transported to Al-Qararah Police Station for interrogation and the General Prosecution and Investigation Board is expected to take over the case.

The body is awaiting detailed examination at the morgue of King Faisal Hospital in Al-Shisha. A coronor’s preliminary findings indicated she had suffered multiple fractures. Initial medical reports support rape prior to her death shortly after midnight. Al-Maiman says she died on impact.
