‘Fearless Felix’ Historic Space Jump Has Natick Ties

first_img Last weekend, the world watched as “Fearless” Felix Baumgartner made his epic descent from a balloon 128,100 feet above the Earth. But what the world didn’t know at the time is that the technology used to monitor Baumgartner’s heart and respiratory rate has ties to Natick, Massachusetts. The Equivital Life Monitor manufactured by Hidalgo Ltd. in Cambridge, U.K., which Baumgartner strapped on before his record-breaking jump, was supported and developed with the assistance of researchers at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine’s (USARIEM) Biophysical and Biomedical Modeling Division (BBMD), in Natick. This device monitors a patient’s heart and respiratory rates, skin temperature, oxygen saturation, body position and motion. That data can then be transmitted to a smartphone or computer for analysis. Today, the Life Monitor is used in a wide range of applications, including use by hospital patients, subjects of pharmaceutical studies, athletes and military personnel. This has become possible because of the research conducted at USARIEM. USARIEM began working with Hidalgo in 2000 after conducting a down select process from which Hidalgo was chosen from four potential collaborators. Researchers at USARIEM were looking for a company that could help them develop a wearable monitoring system that could collect physiological data, such as heart and respiration, from Soldiers who did a variety of physical tasks. “We conducted a series of lab comparisons to find out which vendor would meet our research needs the best,” Anthony Karis, a USARIEM research scientist said. “In the end it was Hidalgo that gave us the most flexibility in terms of collecting the data we needed for our mathematical model development.” Research conducted at Fort Polk, Louisiana, by USARIEM in 2003, demonstrated the important role user acceptability and comfort play in the successful development of a wearable life signs detection system. Any successful system must be compatible with the uniform and equipment worn by the military. In other words, Soldiers have to like it. In 2008, USARIEM was contacted by the program manager for the Marine Expeditionary Rifle Squad who was concerned that Marines in Iraq were getting too hot in the blazing desert heat. So USARIEM sent the Life Monitor to Iraq to answer this question. “Our study showed that these Marines were getting so hot, with being overloaded with protective gear, ballistic equipment and flame protection that they were right at the edge of their physical capabilities in terms of heat stress,” Buller said. The results of this study, according to Buller, were used by the Marines to allow heat to be considered as a factor in determining the amount of ballistic protection a Marine would wear during a mission. Buller said that BBMD’s goal going forward is to use this device along with similar devices and algorithms to provide real time health state information to war fighters, commanders, and medics. Karis agrees. “Ultimately, this technology strives to help us decrease heat casualties and optimize the amount of time a person can work at their full potential,” Karis said. “To think that this was the same device that Baumgartner wore during his descent is really cool.” By Dialogo October 31, 2012last_img read more

Sports can come back but without fans: Fauci

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp New York mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday he doesn’t want to see large-scale sporting events and concerts with fans come back for a long time.“Those big events should be one of the last things we should bring back online. The last thing we should do is gather 10,000, 20,000, 50,000 people in one place,” de Blasio told CNN.“That is the opposite of social distancing, so I think it could take quite a while.”Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Monday that his California city might not host large gatherings, such as sporting events and concerts, before 2021.– More will die –“It would be very difficult to see that,” Garcetti said when asked if events would resume in this calendar year.Also, Jeffrey Smith, the chief executive for Santa Clara County in northern California, told ESPN that more people will die if events are staged too early and that only a “major miracle” could lead to the 2020 NFL season starting on time.“It puts the entire country at risk,” said Smith, who overseas the area that includes the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers and the NHL’s San Jose Sharks as well as several US college teams.“The fundamental thing is sports is not a local event. If you have people travelling from all over and you have no way of knowing whether they’re infected or not — I mean, 50,000 of them in a stadium is not a good idea.” Dr Anthony Fauci says widespread testing, social distancing and empty stadiums are the key to getting US sports up and running againLos Angeles, United States | AFP |  The top US health and infectious disease specialist says the key to reopening professional sports leagues in America is to have the athletes play games in front of empty stadiums.Anthony Fauci, who is helping coordinate the US response to the global coronavirus pandemic, said reliable antibody testing and fast results are also crucial to the return of sports.“There’s a way of doing that,” Fauci told US Snapchat show “Good Luck America.” “Nobody comes to the stadiums. Put (athletes) in big hotels, wherever you want to play.“Keep them very well-surveilled, but have them tested like every week and make sure they don’t wind up infecting each other or their families, and just let them play the season out.”Professional sports leagues are in gridlock due to the pandemic that has so far killed nearly 28,000 Americans.The National Basketball Association is pondering a similar model for getting their 2019-20 season restarted in either Las Vegas or the Bahamas.The NBA shut down on March 11 after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the virus, and the National Hockey League, Major League Soccer and the Professional Golfers’ Association Tour quickly followed suit.The PGA is reportedly considering a return on June 11 without fans in attendance, starting with a tournament in Fort Worth, Texas, which was originally scheduled for the weekend of May 21-24.The matches would not be played in front of fans, and the PGA may have to play on gallery-free courses for at least the months of June and July.Eight Tour events were postponed on March 17. The PGA Championship and Masters were rescheduled for later in the season.Major League Baseball’s 2020 season, which was due to start March 26, is on hold, as is the LPGA tour and motor racing, while the National Football League is just hoping it will be able to start its season on time in September.last_img read more

Top national award for Leicestershire golf coach Anders Mankert

first_imgGolf coach Anders Mankert, who changes lives through the sport, was honoured last night with England Golf’s Lifetime Service Award, sponsored by Bridgestone.Mankert, from Cosby Golf Club, Leicestershire, was recognised at the England Golf Awards at the Royal Lancaster London, which highlighted all that’s great about golf in England.Mankert was celebrated for the difference he has made to blind and visually impaired golfers and to young players making their way in the game.Guests at the glittering, black tie event – including influential figures from across the sport, volunteers, coaches, clubs and counties – applauded Mankert for his remarkable volunteer contributions which span more than two decades.He was nominated by blind students who put him forward for “being a unique inspiration and primarily for introducing us to the sport which has changed our life!” The judges agreed, commenting: “Anders has literally given time, expertise and selfless dedication over 20 years, helping to extend the game’s inclusivity.”Mankert said of his award: “It’s not why I do it, but it’s a lovely, lovely thing to be recognised for your efforts and to know that people actually care. It’s quite humbling and it’s the most amazing thing that has happened in my career.”His story begins back in the mid-1990s when he saw a group of blind and visually impaired players making weekly visits to a golf range. He realised he could help them, tentatively offered his services and has been working with them, and others, ever since, without charging a penny. “We have just carried on for the next 20 years!” he said.Mankert, an Advanced Fellow of the PGA and an honorary life member of the England and Wales Blind Golf Association, does far more than teach the technical skills. When one of his students was unable to find an all-important guide to accompany him on the course, he persuaded a local newspaper to feature the blind golfer – with the result that 17 people volunteered to help.When other students, often unable to work, cannot afford golf club subscriptions he contacts local clubs to ask if they will waive their fees. Some willingly open their doors, but it can also be a tough task – Mankert wrote to 15 clubs on behalf of one player and didn’t receive a single reply.But the setbacks are far outweighed by the achievements. The player who was very depressed after losing his sight overnight and is now British No 1, has competed in world championships and counts Mankert as a personal friend. The visually impaired girl who is now able to play weekly golf with her dad. The young offender who almost blinded his victim with a shot from an air rifle and was ordered by a judge to act as a blind person’s carer for a week. “It was genius,” said Mankert, who described how the surly, unhelpful young man transformed into a phenomenal carer.There’s also satisfaction achieved by player after player. “It strikes me that golf must be the hardest possible game for a blind person to take up,” said Mankert. “But I think they feel that if they can play golf and see some progress they can pretty much have a go at anything and you can see their confidence growing.”There’s also satisfaction for Mankert. “I get masses out of this. I have really enjoyed it, it’s very rewarding to see how something small on my part, giving up a little bit of time, has had such a tremendous impact. It’s unbelievable.”Mankert also runs a scholarship programme offering young golfers the opportunity to work like a tour pro for a year. They receive unlimited coaching and mentoring from Mankert together with support from specialists such as a physiotherapist and a dietician.He’s just awarded his sixth scholarship, selecting the winner from 387 applicants from across the country. One of his former protégées, Ryan Evans, is now a European Tour player, and another is a PGA professional, while all have improved their golf and grown personally and in confidence.“When I was young lots of people helped me and so it’s quite important to give a bit back, it just feels the right thing to do,” said Mankert.Caption: Anders Mankert (left) receives his award from Stuart Attfield on behalf of event sponsors Bridgestone. 22 Feb 2018 Top national award for Leicestershire golf coach Anders Mankert Tags: Anders Mankert, Award, Lifetime Servicecenter_img Top national award for Leicestershire golf coach Anders MankertGolf coach Anders Mankert, who changes lives through the sport, was honoured last night with England Golf’s Lifetime Service Award, sponsored by Bridgestone.Mankert, from Cosby Golf Club, Leicestershire, was recognised at the England Golf Awards at the Royal Lancaster London, which highlighted all that’s great about golf in England.Mankert was celebrated for the difference he has made to blind and visually impaired golfers and to young players making their way in the game.Guests at the glittering, black tie event – including influential figures from across the sport, volunteers, coaches, clubs and counties – applauded Mankert for his remarkable volunteer contributions which span more than two decades.He was nominated by blind students who put him forward for “being a unique inspiration and primarily for introducing us to the sport which has changed our life!” The judges agreed, commenting: “Anders has literally given time, expertise and selfless dedication over 20 years, helping to extend the game’s inclusivity.”Mankert said of his award: “It’s not why I do it, but it’s a lovely, lovely thing to be recognised for your efforts and to know that people actually care.

Sale of Hazard a hazard to Chelsea’s Europa future

first_imgThe rumours that Chelsea are going to be selling of Hazard to Real Madrid soon have been going around for a while now. The confirmation of the rumours did not come recently, but it did come with a big impact on the club and their fans. Many have been feeling rather despondent, some even fearing that the fact that Hazard is being sold off to Real Madrid might have a terrible result on the future of the club. The predictions are all over the place and the fears are really shaking the paranoia of the fans awake, with some mighty tips being dropped that the future of the Europa final might be under hazard if the deal goes through soon. The deal is officialRecent announcements by the club officials have made it clear that the sale deal will be made official and the details will be made public on May 12th, which is coming much sooner than everyone expected. There were fears going around for a while that the team will be losing, or getting rid of, their best player before the Europa semi-finals and the finals are over, but these fears were dispelled yesterday The leaders of the club mentioned that the only way that the deal will be going through sooner, rather than later, is if the Blues do not end up making it to the Finals. According to them, Hazard will be staying on with the team in case the team makes it to the finals.The transfer, resulting from Zinedine Zidane wanting Hazard on his team, was under suspicion for a long time. Fans were not willing to believe the transfer was going to happen, and with Zizou leaving and coming back a number of times, some were excited to not have Hazard leave. But the choice has been made, both by Zidane and by Hazard and now the club has to comply with the choice of their best player as well.The good and the bad news and predictionsOne thing is guaranteed at least – Hazard will be finishing the championship with Chelsea, which is what the fans and the club were hoping for. Otherwise, there would be too much danger to the club, as many fans doubted the ability of the team to hold their own in the finals without their best player. Still, there are some that believe even the simple news of Hazard leaving might have an adverse effect on the performance of the team. Some are expecting the news to harm the morale of the team and cause them to surrender even before finishing the semi-finals, a tragic end to an interesting run this year around. While the fears seem to be justified, at least sort of, hopes remain high that the team will be able to rally and give their best and one of the fan favorite players a chance to have a successful and impressive end to the end of his Chelsea run. While the hopes remain high, the final result of the deal is yet to be seen. The final announcement will be made on May 12th. But Chelsea fans should be prepared to say goodbye to one of the favourite Blue players of the past few years, as the deal is now unavoidable.
