I’m not sure how many of you know my story or background. Not talking about ethnicity or social class, but the professional one; the one that truly marks you for life. Because what you choose to be or do is what denominates and marks you. To make the story short, my background is a Baccalaureate degree in nursing at the University of South Florida, with an unfinished specialty in Occupation Health Nurse Practitioner Masters Degree.  This degree allows me to see the problems that arise in not only your health, but what health issues jobs can cause. Occupational health in particular pertains to the area in which preventative care and education is given to our patients so that they may entail their job not only professionally, but safely. Not much different from a true Audioholics Fan. Audioholics prides itself in education of consumers (i.e. patients) in intelligent buying approaches (i.e. safety) to make their home theater (i.e. jobs) the best one in the budget and desire.

Future Automation Bed LiftThe best yet, when these two markets, health and CE combine, new sorts of products are born. Future Automation, for example, is the market leader in flat screen mounting solutions and high-tech automation devices. They devised a way for people that are bed-bound (Alzheimer’s, quadriplegia, hip fractures, etc) to still enjoy their TV without having to travel to their family room or reach for their TV remote at their desk. This product is called the Under Bed Lift or UBL and it’s a compact design, near silent motor with a full cable management system impressive mechanism that can store a flat screen underneath a bed without having to worry about the undercarriage storage for it.  Just think about the innovation of this product. For a bed ridden viewer, ample room is needed for all the other “amenities” found in their bedroom, starting from the bed alarms, lifting mechanisms for mobilization, motorized chairs and wheelchairs, etc.  There is not much room left for a TV, unless you wanted it wall mounted, letting everything else obstruct its visibility. Even the pickiest wife cant’ say no to this; it’s so easy to hide that it will blow her mind. Its length in closed position its only 55.6” and the under the bed depth it reaches a mere 8.5” in length.  It can still hold a weight of up to 70 lb TV without any problems.

Now, going back to the clutter home bound room, lets drift our focus to the armoire or desk area where the supplemental equipment is found. To make things ever easier, Home Controls specializing in home automation is one of the leading companies to fuse CE technology in to home health. Their product line of Home Health Tech is not only used at Assisted Living facilities and Retirement Homes but they are also used at the consumer’s homes too. Their motto is to allow a higher opportunity of independent living with home automation. Systems include lighting, blinds, and security, audio, phone, heating/cooling, date network, video, irrigation, home theater, etc, all at the one touch of a finger.

What makes this happen? A wonderful touch screen is placed at customer’s home. It allows for a full access to news, weather, email reminders and more, even playing games, music and many other activities that help to improve their cognitive minds. Every day stimulation is a big thing in this type of patient care, even if is just to keep your mind sane while home bound or alone.

Presto PrinterThis product also offers communication with all of its other applications like blood pressure monitoring, medication dispenser with reminders settings, door answering systems, wireless intercom kits, etc. All of these created with some main things in mind and with the use of wonderful technology; safety and independence.  To enhance the services, this provider also allows you to stay in touch with wireless email; the new Presto Computerless Email. Most of the independent senior population find it hard to keep up with technology, but still don’t want to give up looking cool and remaining in touch with loved ones.  This technology allows them to do both as easily as possible. This system allows them to receive email, digital photos and documents without a computer and internet connection. Not a joke.  A true statement and all with the ease of a telephone jack. Presto transfers these messages into the pictures that print out automatically, without even having to check. Even cooler, it looks like you have the computer. Let’s impress the family and friends and keep away the computer viruses; one less thing to worry about.
