Where the action is in wearables: Healthcare niches
Take ZetrOZ Systems’ sam® wearable products. Sam® Sport, for example, has a proprietary ultrasound technology using low intensity, long-duration ultrasound. It not only provides pain relief, but also speeds up the healing process for various tendon, ligament or muscle injuries, according to Chief Commercial Officer Jim Molinaro. To that end, there’s a small device that snaps into a bandage-like patch on the skin. Ultrasound wave pulses, he says, “wake up the human body,” building up collagen, which accelerates healing, increasing oxygen levels and blood flow. Sensors monitor the frequency of pulses, as well as temperature, to make sure the device doesn’t heat up too much. Approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in 2013, it’s available by prescription in the U.S. and over the counter in Europe, Canada and Asia.
Giving Peacetech A Chance
Last year, in Abu Dhabi, a group of young coders participated in an event its organizers called a Haqqathon. “Haqq” is the Arabic word for truth, an appropriate term for a gathering aimed at mobilizing Muslim programmers to fight Islamic extremism. The winner: a mobile app allowing young people to receive answers to questions from authoritative Muslim scholars in millennial-friendly, 60-second video clips, a far cry from the hour-long treatises typically presented by the experts. “This is a way for their teachings to get through to the Twitter generation," says Shahed Amanullah, co-founder of Affinis Labs, a Falls Church, Va.–based startup accelerator and organizer of the event.

Cisco Closes 'Security Effectiveness Gap' with New Services and Integrated Cloud-Based Solutions
While potentially increasing capabilities, this conventional, niche-product approach to security can create unmanageable complexity that results in a security effectiveness gap for companies. Through its security architecture, the Cisco security portfolio increases capabilities but also decreases complexity — offering an alternative approach for customers that helps them close the gap and be more secure.
Cisco Presents Software Platform for Omni-Channel Retail in Germany
Online shopping continues to grow nonstop, driven among others by the popularity of mobile shopping. A recent Cisco study conducted for German retail showed that more than a quarter of all Germans already use independent shopping apps. More than a third use retailer-specific mobile applications. Traditional retailers need to react to these changes and interlink their online and offline activities. By closing the gap between purchases with smartphones, web or in-store, solutions such as WeShop will help drive the digitization of German retail.
