Aging Expert, Lisa Cini Talks Tech From CES 2020 to Help Improve Quality of Life for Seniors

gbafNews28

According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, more than 10,000 people turn 65 every day in the United States, and people are living longer, healthier lives. This years Consumer Electronic Show (CES) featured 11 new technologies to help aging adults maintain mood, hearing, social connection, exercise, safety, medication management and health tracking.

Every year I travel the globe to discover the latest and greatest in assistive technologies, says Lisa Cini, President /CEO, Mosaic Design Studio and BestLivingTech.com. The things that we take for granted in our youth can become difficult as we age, like balancing while we walk, catching our breath, hearing the TV or our loved ones when they are speaking. My mission is to use technology to move from fear to freedom as we age.

Lisas 2020 CES Tech Picks Include:

  1. Hapbee is a wearable device and smartphone app that can make you feel happy, calm, sleepy, alert, focused, etc. with the click of a button.
  2. Livio AI is a hearing aid that not only helps to hear better, but has fall detection, can track body and brain health and translates 27 languages.
  3. Zibrio has created a SmartScale previously utilized by astronauts returning from space, that measures movements that indicate high risk of falling.
  4. MouthLab by Aidar Health is a hand-held home monitoring device that measures more than 10 medical parameters such as temperature, respiratory rate, blood pressure, breathing patterns, heart rate, lung function, and more in 30 seconds.
  5. Essence Group Fall Detector Radar is a detection system for seniors that uses technology to track a person’s position in the home, provide immediate detection of a fall, and effectively alert healthcare providers.
  6. CarePredict is a wearable device that assesses seniors day to day movements such as sleep, movement around the house, eating, and more.
  7. Kytera Companion is a smart remote that provides insights into wellness such as fall detection and physical and mental changes by monitoring behavioral symptoms.
  8. MedWand is a handheld device that allows users to conduct remote office visits and, using real-time collection of vital sign readings, can accurately monitor medical conditions regardless of location.
  9. Embr Wave is a personal thermostat bracelet that works by making a user feel colder or warmer by 5ºF.
  10. VoiceItt is a speech recognition technology that translates unintelligible speech in real-time, providing a voice and communication to people with severe speech impairments.
  11. H2-BP is the worlds smallest and lightest wearable blood pressure monitor.

The technologies that were presented at CES 2020 have blown me away in terms of usability and accessibility, adds Cini. And, I am encouraged to see so many new devices to ensure a more well-rounded, safe and happy quality of life for aging adults.

Lisa Cini ASID, IIDA, is an award-winning, internationally recognized designer with decades of experience developing interiors that improve quality of life for seniors.

Citi Australia expands partnership with Netwealth

gbafNews28

SYDNEY, Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Citi Australia has today announced that it will extend its partnership with Netwealth, Australia’s fastest growing platform, as their provider of International Custody, Global and Domestic Equities Execution and Fund Administration.

Expanding on the two firms existing partnership, Netwealth will be the first Australian wealth platform to have access to Citi’s global platform ‘Execution to Custody’ (E2C). E2C provides institutions with global execution, settlement and custody services in a single portal, removing operational inefficiencies and risks associated with dealing with multiple providers, while enhancing quality execution and service.

"Netwealth has an outstanding reputation in the local market and we are thrilled to provide them with a high-tech solution that will reduce manual workload, allowing them to concentrate their resources towards clients and technology as opposed to operational flow," said Citi Australia Head of Equities Daniel Young.

The announcement comes as Netwealth recently launched a new series of funds within their Global Specialist Series products with Magellan Financial Group.

"Citi is particularly well placed to facilitate Netwealth’s growth plans, whether that is combining our leading Markets and Securities Services products together like we have with E2C, or providing a full suite of Fund Administration services that will support their new Global Specialist Series offering. Our international access is unparalleled in the Australian market," added Mr Young.

"We know our clients want greater access to International markets both directly, via funds and also via our Managed account, and Citi was able to provide unparalleled exposure for our team. Following a seamless onboarding experience, we look forward to leveraging Citi’s strengths to help in our aim to be the most comprehensive wealth platform in Australia," said Matt Heine, Joint Managing Director of Netwealth.

Welcoming Netwealth as a client is part of a larger growth story for Citi’s Custody and Fund Services business across Asia Pacific, with Citi Australia looking to welcome more than 20 custodian clients over the next 12 months. These clients are transitioning to Citi following a client transfer agreement with Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) in March. As a result of this agreement, Citi also looks to welcome a large number of new employees to support these clients.

Martin Carpenter, Head of Securities Service for Citi Australia said, "We are extremely pleased to deepen our relationship with Netwealth. It’s an exciting time for our business as we welcome new clients and team members to Citi and add significant operational scale in the process."

About Citi

Citi, the leading global bank, has approximately 200 million customer accounts and does business in more than 160 countries and jurisdictions. Citi provides consumers, corporations, governments and institutions with a broad range of financial products and services, including consumer banking and credit, corporate and investment banking, securities brokerage, transaction services, and wealth management.

Citi’s Securities Services business holds over $23.6 trillion in assets under custody and administration, with a network spanning 63 markets.

gbafNews28

SHANGHAI, Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Music China, jointly organized by CMIA, Shanghai INTEX and Messe Frankfurt, returns in Shanghai New International Expo Centre on October 28-31, 2020.

One of the world’s largest expos of musical instruments, Music China has been playing an important role in the global music industry. Last year, Music China hosted more than 2,400 exhibitors from over 34 countries and regions, drawing 122,519 attendees from 78 countries and regions. To seize the critical moment for economic recovery after the pandemic, Music China 2020 will make the most of its resources to present an upgraded expo with tremendous business opportunities to energize the industry, as well as a wonderful music experience to delight all music lovers.

Thanks to 19-year sound development, Music China has become the best gateway for first-hand information of the market, and for all kinds of musical instruments from the most famous brands worldwide. Brands who will exhibit on Music China 2020 includes AKG, Aria, AXL, Bechstein, Buffet, Casio, Conn-Selmer, Dunhuang, Fengling, Hsinghai, JBL, Jinyin, JOYO, Kawai, Levy’s, NUX, Parsons, Pearl River, PianoDisc, Pioneer DJ, Saga, Samick, Schimmel, Seiler, Steinway, Taylor, Yamaha, and Yanagisawa. They are expected to feast your eyes with their premier collection of products, from musical instruments, audio and sound products, to music-making software and online apps for music education.

Not only a trade platform for the industry, Music China is also a music carnival for all music lovers. It prepares diversified events covering music education, celebrities’ lectures, music live shows as well as other art and cultural events. As for oversea audiences who are unable to visit the show in-person due to the pandemic, Music China is establishing an exhibition platform online — a "cloud expo" where they can "visit" the show and make a deal all at home. It enables audiences to enjoy the same functions as of the on-site expo, viewing product display, interacting with exhibitors, or fulfilling purchase plans.

Though the ongoing epidemic has caused down pressure for the whole world, Music China, as part of the industry, is striving to make contributions to the recovery of the industry. We believe that music can bring together people’s minds and reignite their enthusiasm with music.
