Pyreos Heads East With Expanded Asia Operations
News Apr 03, 2013
Pyreos announces the 2nd stage of its global expansion has been completed, with the appointment of ten sales and distribution channel partners to support customers in Asia-Pac, to help deal with the exceptional interest levels in the Pyreos gesture sensor product from mobile phone and tablet computer manufacturers in China, Taiwan, Hong-Kong and Japan.
Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jeff Gray says: “There is phenomenal interest in our low power gesture sensor in that region, which has intensified since the introduction of the Galaxy 4 by Samsung which has gesture functionality. Many customers have told us that they see our gesture sensing as the lowest power and more long term solution for mobile and tablet devices that can work from close-up to a few meters of distance. It is great to add so many well established distribution partners to support our customers in their respective regions in Asia-Pac.”
Jeff Wright, CEO & Co-Founder of Pyreos comments: “These developments will ensure customers in Asia-Pac can rapidly access our gesture sensor products as well as our industrial sensor products and receive world class sales and customer support from our partners.”
Pyreos is a leading supplier of next generation infrared sensor products. Its unique, patented technology is enabling ground-breaking new applications including: touchless gesture control of mobile phones and tablet pcs; prevention of gear box failure in the engines of wind turbines, ships and helicopters; the early detection of serious medical illnesses, including diabetes and other life threatening conditions.
Algorithm Predicts Life Expectancy After Heart AttackNews
A new algorithm developed by UCLA researchers more accurately predicts which people will survive heart failure, and for how long, whether or not they receive a heart transplant. The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.
Plug-and-Play Diagnostic Devices DevelopedNews
Researchers at MIT’s Little Devices Lab have developed a set of modular blocks that can be put together in different ways to produce diagnostic devices. These “plug-and-play” devices, which require little expertise to assemble, can test blood glucose levels in diabetic patients or detect viral infection, among other functions.READ MORE
