ergoSEET is now raft

raftSame great product with new name and brand!

If you’re discovering us for the first time, welcome. Welcome to a new world of comfort. Welcome to a new standard for quality.

Welcome to Raft, where you can enjoy the things you always wanted to do — but never could, because of pain, discomfort, or other barriers that stood in your way. It’s time to take back your life and say yes to an enriched, fulfilled life.

Life is an evolutionary process, and so is the Raft brand. You may recognize our products from our previous identity, SEETtek. You may recognize the Raft posture seat as what was formerly called the ergoSEET. You may have never heard of us at all.

The idea of doing things the right way could not be more important to us. We believe in the importance of making lives better, easier, and happier.

Think of this as a new identity, a rebranding, an unveiling, a fresh start, or whatever you want to call it. The fact is that we’re not motivated by selling our products as much as we are by helping people. What’s really meaningful to us is when we get feedback from people whose lives have been improved by Raft. WE got this feedback in September of last year:

“I’ve had back problems for 20 years, since I ruptured a disk in my lower back. I’ve used all kinds of seat cushions and seat backs over the years and they’ve worked to varying degrees. But NOTHING has worked like [Raft]. It’s comfortable, yet it provides my body with the right support to improve my posture and keep me from doing those things that make me stiffen up or ache.”

Author Marty Neumeier said, “When people’s experiences match their expectations, their loyalty increases.”

Steve Jobs said, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”

We believe that both are true. We believe that when you care about how people feel, you can change lives for the better. So join us. Raft is your life saver.

Raft is quality life. Experienced.

relaymed_logoA Scottish technology start-up is to create at least 20 new jobs over the next two years after securing £300,000 in public funding.

RelayMed is based at the technology incubator, TechCube, in Edinburgh.

Its cloud-based software aims to reduce healthcare workloads and costs by helping to move more tests from traditional hospital laboratory settings into GP offices.

It works by capturing and storing data from point-of-care devices and transferring that information into electronic health records.

RelayMed managing director Neil Farish said: “We want to ensure patients receive a higher quality of care and we passionately believe in our solution to make and empower a real improvement to their life.

“The funding we have secured has helped us build strong foundations and create an exciting team to start to address the needs of this growing market.”

The company grew out of a collaboration between Goodmark Medical in Florida and life sciences investment and partnering firm Innova Partnerships, which is based in St Fillans, Perthshire.

How will Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) affect device sales?

How will Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) affect device sales?

Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are one of the most buzzed about programs associated with US healthcare reform. These new partnerships stand to reduce cost, improve efficiency, and raise the quality of care delivered to patients.

Patient accountability is one way. So we have to wait and see how will this population be incentivized for healthy behavior? Goodmark believes in the empowerment of the patient in staying actively involved in their health through direct interaction with their medical record and direct access to testing.

Also will be emphasis on evidence-based medicine to improve outcomes — How can manufacturers best prove the specific benefit of their products? Goodmark identifies partnerships with manufacturers that have products that improve outcomes. We look forward to bringing these products to themarket and serving our consumers.

Currently, most health care providers still use medical record systems based on paper. New government incentives and programs are helping health care providers make the switch to electronic health records.
