LC Waikiki, the global Turkish clothing brand, which carries out its activities with its “Everybody deserves to dress well” mission, has pioneered the use of its LCW Sense application,put into service for visually impaired individuals in its 36 stores in Russia. LC Waikiki is also aiming for the app to be available in the Middle East and North Africa.

Thanks to the LCW Sense app, which can be downloaded to mobile phones free of charge from App Store and Google Play store, visually impaired individuals can easily find all the information about a garment, such as colour, fabric, pattern, washing instructions and price. This empowers visually impaired shoppers to pick out their clothes without the help of someone else. The app also offers solutions around creating outfits and differentiating between items of clothing.

More about the LCW Sense app

Shoppers using the app can listen to information about the item, particularly the details on the item label, allowing them to buy clothes in the style and size that they like. Once at home, the app can also provide advice on how to wash each article and how best to combine it with other pieces.

Underscoring LC Waikiki’s leadership in pioneering the app, the first of its kind, LC Waikiki Chief Marketing Manager Ms. Deniz Aktürk Erdem says:

“At LC Waikiki, we are in contact with a large customer base every day in more than 900 stores in 44 countries around the world; we are trying to understand their needs and demands and to respond to them. Because we serve millions of people from every age group every day and every income level of the society, we focus on “human” factor. As a brand that appeals to millions, we consider keeping our ears open to all sectors as our social responsibility.

“For this reason, we try to understand and support the needs of every sector with the power we get from our leadership in fashion and clothing.

“In line with these priorities, last year we implemented the LCW Sense project, the first in the world, with the great efforts of our friends, LC Waikiki Social Responsibility Platform Volunteers, who sincerely believe in our corporate values. In 2018, we decided to open this application to the world and our first country was Russia.

“In our first 36 stores in Russia, we brought the application into practice for the use of our visually impaired customers. Our biggest goal is to expand the LCW Sense application, which has drawn great attention in Turkey, to 44 countries where we have stores.”

Pointing out that fashion focuses on “life” in the digitalized world, Erdem said that fashion which does not reach out to the people and is not adopted by the user becomes obsolete; in this regard, the fashion retail industry must put creative and innovative applications into practice. Erdem adds, “LC Waikiki is a brand that closely follows innovations and technologies in digital trends. We combine technology and innovation with creative ideas to make life easier for our customers. LCW Sense is the best example of this. With the development of technology and better understanding of our customers’ needs, we will have improvements both in the usage and scope of the application.”

LC Waikiki aims to continue expanding the availability of its LCW Sense app beyond Russia, the Middle East and North Africa – eventually bringing it to all of its stores in 44 countries.

Decades of research, laboratory curiosities, and world-changing effect notes are starting to be implemented worldwide and the age of quantum is here.

Whenever we are talking about the atomic clock (which already 69 years old) or supercomputers, everything in the natural world can be described by quantum mechanics.

Although, the theory was born a century ago, what is notable about the effort now is that the challenges are no longer scientific but have become matters of engineering. A new industry is born and the future definitely looks exciting as the quantum industry covers far more than just quantum computing. Quantum technology harnesses the strange behavior of tiny particles for a whole range of applications, including navigation tools, enhanced imaging technology, and extremely precise timing devices.

Quantum techniques can also be used to improve the efficiency and capacity of communication channels on a global scale and the method used is Photonics.

The method is focused on the use of light particles, photons, to transmit or carry information. This has been proved to be a less resource-intensive process, since photons are more accessible than other sources of energy, and fiber cables weigh around 40 times less than cables currently used for telephone lines and broadband internet.

During the inaugural PICANTE Tech Conference Europe, we are bringing together industry leaders, scientist and will discuss (among other topics) the investment opportunities in Quantum Technology and Nanotech.

The panel discussion which is titled “Discussions and Investment Opportunities in Quantum Technology and Nanotech” will be joined by Dr. André Xuereb, Professor of Atomic and Quantum Physics at the University of Malta.

About Dr. André Xuereb

André Xuereb is physicist from Malta. He read for an undergraduate degree in mathematics and physics at the University of Malta, a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the University of Southampton in the UK, and a master degree in entrepreneurship at the University of Malta. He is a professor of atomic and quantum physics at the University of Malta, is Science Policy Officer of the Malta Chamber of Scientists, represents Malta on several European research networks, and was recently elected as the first Maltese member of the Global Young Academy. André has an active career in science, having established and leading the quantum research group at the University of Malta, and co-owns an educational software startup.

PICANTE Tech Conference Europe is designed to bring both people and knowledge together and provides the excellent ecosystem of networking and learning opportunities without interruptions with emphasis on comfort and communication. After learning from genuine world-class experts and wayseers, meeting achievers shaping the B2B ecosystem, all attendees will get the chance to grab a drink and relax while networking at the evening social gathering.

Annual awards program recognizes outstanding health and medical technology products and companies

Elekta (EKTA-B.ST), today announced that MedTech Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global health and medical technology market, has presented the “Medical Device Engineering Breakthrough” award in the 2019 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program to Elekta for its Elekta Unity MR-linac.

Elekta Unity combines two technologies: a state-of-the-art 1.5T MRI scanner and a best-in-class 7 MV linear accelerator, driven by breakthrough real-time adaptive radiotherapy software. It provides the ability to reshape the dose based on daily changes in shape, size and position of the tumor and surrounding healthy anatomy, as visualized with MRI, and then enables accurate dose delivery with real-time visualization of the tumor.

“We reserve our Medical Device Engineering Breakthrough award for recognizing transformative technology and Elekta Unity is a shining example of groundbreaking medical technology deserving of this designation,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “In addition to Elekta Unity displaying breakthrough engineering that combines precision radiation therapy and high-field MR imaging, Elekta Unity addresses one of the most critical healthcare issues in the world with a focus on providing the next generation of cancer care.”

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records, mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

“It’s an honor for Elekta to win this prestigious award,” said Richard Hausmann, Elekta’s President and CEO. “The Unity system’s breakthrough technology demonstrates our leadership in precision radiation medicine and commitment to the needs of the patient and cancer care team delivering treatment.”

Robert Woolston, Managing Director at DCA Design International, Elekta’s design partner for the MR-linac system, commented, “Congratulations to all involved in the development of Elekta Unity. We are delighted to see this system winning award after award and most importantly to see it improving cancer patients’ radiotherapy experience and outcomes, as it ushers in a transformation in precision and personalized cancer treatment.”

Through Elekta Unity’s integrated and responsive software, tumors and surrounding tissue can be precisely located, their movement tracked, and treatment adapted in real time based on live information. This allows treatment plans to be adapted while the patient is on the table in response to changes in tumor position, shape, biology and the relationship to sensitive organs over time.
