Aster DM Healthcare Launches new Aster Chronic Care @ Home Service



Aster DM Healthcare, the healthcare conglomerate has launched an advanced technology for chronic disease (Diabetes and Hypertension) patients, as a part of its innovative remote monitoring programme called Aster Chronic Care @ Home. Inaugurated by Dr. Layla Al Marzouqi – Director of Health Regulation at the Dubai Health Authority (DHA); Dr. Azad Moopen – Founder, Chairman and Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare; and Ms. Alisha Moopen – Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, Hospitals & Clinics (GCC); the integrated health service will empower patients to take control of their disease management through close monitoring of blood glucose and blood pressure reading, constant data management through a mobile app connected to a call centre and proactive patient outreach from Aster specialists for care.

Envisioned to deliver a personalised healthcare solution that will strengthen continuum of care by ensuring compliance to disease management regime and minimising complications associated with the conditions. The technology would function through the introduction of smart monitoring devices for blood glucose and blood pressure. The readings or data captured by the devices would be automatically updated to a mobile application on the patient’s phone and health records maintained by the care provider. These health interpretations readings will be closely monitored by trained nurses and paramedics through a contact centre.

In case of fluctuations in the reading patterns, the patient would receive direct calls from Aster care specialists. The new service is based on the international concept of improving chronic disease care through regular monitoring and constant communication about disease management from the care provider to the patient.

“One of our constant efforts in UAE, is to ensure that all our residents have access to quality healthcare and undertake the appropriate measures necessary to minimize the challenges associated with highly prevalent chronic diseases like Diabetes and Hypertension. Personalised and customised health services need to be accessible, affordable, and responsive. We congratulate Aster DM Healthcare, for their continued efforts in initiating positive measures to help transform healthcare delivery in the country,” said Dr. Layla Al Marzouqi – Director of Health Regulation at the Dubai Health Authority (DHA).

“At Aster, we strive to continuously strengthen our service offerings and bridge gaps in access to quality healthcare services across the UAE, in alignment with the government’s vision. The Aster Chronic Care @ Home programme aims to make disease management for patients a smooth and easy-to-use solution to make a positive difference in their lives. It is our constant endeavour to fulfill our commitment to improving the lives of the people that we serve every day, through innovative solutions, to achieve best health outcomes,” said Dr. Azad Moopen – Founder, Chairman and Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare.

The technology solution is based on a pilot study conducted amongst diabetic patients where patients followed a monitoring regime, advised by their doctors. Around 58% of the patients showed marked improvement in managing the condition without any change in medication therapies by their physician. The study provided the basis for further analysis of disease management trends in UAE.

“Healthcare is shifting its focus from hospital-based acute care towards prevention, promotion of wellness, and maintenance of function in community as well as home-based facilities. In the era of constant connectivity, the solution enables people to interact with healthcare professionals for disease management at home or at work; patients can limit doctor visits to when an in-person clinical consultation is appropriate,” said Ms. Alisha Moopen – Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, Hospitals & Clinics (GCC).

The Aster Chronic Care @ home package includes smart Diabetes and Blood Pressure monitoring devices, constant care monitoring and fast track services, which is available at a one year home monitoring subscription cost of AED 999, following doctor’s advice. Renewal of home monitoring subscription in the subsequent year can be availed at AED 299, making it 54 AED per month for 2 years. The service is currently available in Dubai, and will be expanding to other Emirates in the coming months.

RYSE Launches SmartShade



RYSE has launched its SmartShades – a motorised shade. The company claims that it is the only retrofit solution, meaning it can be set up on any window shade already installed in your home, office, hotel room, or anywhere. The device involves a Chain-Drive system, in which the motor is mounted on the window frame and controls the chains or cords of your window shade. The idea is surprisingly simple – the motor essentially acts as a pulley system for your window shade.

Installation takes a matter of minutes. In 3 easy steps, you can transform your cord-controlled shades into motorised ones. All you have to do is install the mounting bracket on the window frame, loop the chain/cords through the cogwheel, and snap the device onto the bracket to tighten the chain/cord – that’s it. You can then program the SmartShade to lock the top and bottom positions into memory.

This motor is guaranteed to lift your window shade, regardless of its size or weight. How is this possible? This is because the clutch that already comes with your window shade helps reduce the required force needed to pull. While you can power the RYSE SmartShade with an AC Plug into the wall outlet, many of the company’s partners, including hotels and commercial office space, wanted a sleek clean look that is wire-free.

So the company created a removable, rechargeable battery pack that can last up to a staggering 9 months on a single charge, and you can simply recharge the pack via USB.

Control your shades via the buttons on the device or with our mobile app, where you can even create schedules – you can have them set up to rise at 7 am to help me wake up to natural sunlight, and close at 8 pm to give you privacy. Or integrate with Google Home, Amazon Alexa, or Apple HomeKit and control your shades by saying a few simple words. “Hey Google, open my window shades!”

Forget paying thousands of dollars per window just to have Smart Shades. RYSE SmartShade retails for only $149 – a fraction of the cost of competing solutions in the marketplace today.

Launched alongside the CPU cooling system is the M200 Portable SSD, winner of Japan’s 2021 GOOD DESIGN Award. Hardcore gamers around the world can look forward to both products when they are released globally this December.

The newly upgraded SIREN GD240E AIO ARGB CPU Liquid Cooler not only supports various older Intel and AMD sockets but also provides a mounting kit for the latest LGA 1700 socket. The specially selected base plate, support screws, and mounting brackets enable the water block to fit snugly with the processor. The full and even contact between the surfaces aids heat transfer swiftly to the high-density jet fin heat sink, greatly increasing the heat dissipation area and quickly removing heat from the CPU.

To optimise efficiency and the path of heat transfer, the SIREN GD240E is equipped with an ultra-fast 4000RPM water pump that’s installed on the radiator to reduce wear and noise on the CPU caused by water pump vibrations. These features allow the system to deliver 1.5 times higher cooling performance than typical liquid-cooled products while also providing the best protection for the next-gen Intel processors. The SIREN GD240E is an all-in-one liquid cooler system with top-notch heat dissipation and visual flair thanks to the water block’s elegant mirror finish and high-speed ARGB fans that support all major motherboard lighting software.

The M200 Portable SSD has a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 interface, which delivers a blazing fast speed of 2,000MB/s, four times that of USB 3.2 Gen 1 external SSDs. It also features USB Type A and Type C OTG capabilities and supports a wide range of platforms, including tablets, smartphones, and PlayStation and Xbox consoles. With a total weight of only 83 grams and a maximum capacity of 8TB, the M200 Portable SSD is lightweight and portable, giving you easy access to fast drive speeds and massive storage at any time.

The upgraded SIREN GD240E AIO ARGB CPU Liquid Cooler provides a new CPU cooling option for the latest Intel platform, and the high-speed M200 Portable SSD offers two different transmission interfaces, so consumers with large capacity storage needs can buy with confidence. These two new products will be available worldwide in December 2021.
