The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2020-06-30T00:40:19Z Technology enabled care - physiotherapy association recruiting for patient data pilot 2020-06-30T00:40:19Z technology-enabled-care-physiotherapy-association-recruiting-for-patient-data-pilot The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA), are commencing a Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) data pilot funded by the Physiotherapy Research Foundation (PRF) with support from Macquarie University, to demonstrate the feasibility of data collection to guide better and more effective clinical decisions. A PROM is a scientifically validated questionnaire used to measure and quantify a patient’s condition from their own perspective. PROMs provide valuable data that help complete the feedback loop between treatments and outcomes, assist practitioners with the monitoring of conditions and help to inform treatment decisions. With current practice to collect PROMs data on an ad hoc basis, the PROMs data pilot is an innovative project that will collect PROMs data electronically and in real-time from patients with knee conditions who are receiving physiotherapy treatment.  Pilot study participants are able to subscribe to the latest dedicated technology for PROMs data collection, myscoreit™. myscoreit is a web-based PROMs collection platform that collects PROMs data digitally from patients whilst at home through a quick and simple questionnaire between appointments. Patients receive immediate feedback, are able to follow their own progress and engage in their own management. APA’s Vice President and Physiotherapy Research Foundation Chair, Jenny Aiken commented on the pilot “We are delighted to partner with the myscoreit platform to enable the APA to investigate the feasibility of digitally collecting PROMs in the private practice setting. myscoreit not only collects PROM data which can be used by the APA to gain insights into the effectiveness of physiotherapy intervention, it also guides the user to choose the right PROM to allow the practitioner to track patient progress and make informed clinical decisions.” Jenny added.  Unlike existing PROMs collection solutions, myscoreit has been designed and developed by sports physicians to focus solely on PROMs data collection. Not only does it assist practitioners with choosing the correct PROM for their patient, it also facilitates easy interpretation to help use clinical data with patients to inform treatment decisions. “Our aim was to design a platform that integrated seamlessly into existing clinical practice and was simple for both you and your patient to use.”myscoreit founder and Sport and Exercise Physician, Dr Louise Tulloh said. “The myscoreit platform has the ability to capture and compare data over time enabling you to track patient progress and treatment effectiveness from a dashboard in real time and bridge the gap between appointments. Collection of outcome measures can support remote monitoring, add value to telehealth consultations, and help to improve communication with referrers. This pilot will demonstrate the importance of value-based decision making and the role that technology can play in futureproofing the physiotherapy profession.” Expressions of interest for the pilot are now open, and through the support of the Physiotherapy Research Foundation, all physiotherapists have been given the opportunity to participate in this research.

The brand offers fashionable design surfwear using Limestone Neoprene, an eco-friendly alternative to the conventional Petroleum-based Neoprene.   The performance material and avant-garde designs make BlackGoat Wetsuits a new premium surf brand that stands out from the monotone surf crowd. The concept underlying this business is to develop practical, trendy, and durable wetsuits. Though, without a compromise on the environment.   Each wetsuit under the label offers improved performance over petroleum-based neoprene including super stretchiness for elasticity, flexibility, weight, and insulation. The brand is specifically eager to change the surfing landscape from all-black wetsuits to fashionable and cool styles.   BlackGoat Wetsuits is determined to enable fluid and liberated movement for the users. The business welcomes all surfing enthusiasts to join in this new wave by launching a Kickstarter very soon.   Founder, Marc Bohmann Mentions:   I am a sports enthusiast and surfer. I started my journey in Santa Barbara and South Africa and since fell in love with surfing. But, something about the conventional wetsuits was not right. And, that had to change.   About BlackGoat Wetsuits: Founder Marc is a traveler and surfer himself. Hence, the designs match the needs of travelers and surfers. As of now, the brand offers ten patterns created by designers from across the globe. Each pattern is bold and eye-catching. The number of options is bound to increase over time.

Focusing in on the reopening of gyms across Australia and what the future of our industry will look like for Gyms, Personal Trainers and their clients, we ask Steve for his views on the "new normal" and the short term and longer impacts it will have on the industry. GYYMI would like to thank Steve for his precious time and we hope you enjoy this exclusive Q&A.   GYYMI - At GYYMI, we have noticed that trainers are having to quickly adapt due to the COVID-19 restrictions, with more trainers using GYYMI’s “train anywhere” feature. What has been the biggest area the AIF has had to adapt to due to COVID-19?   STEVE - The biggest area in which the AIF has had to adapt would be with the temporary halt on our popular face-to-face teaching and the subsequent launch of our Master Trainer Online Plus+Program™. Although challenging, we were able to quickly innovate and launch a cutting-edge solution to cater for students who prefer a face-to-face learning environment, yet through virtual means. The other major change was moving to a work from home model, our team has been outstanding at embracing the move and it's given us the opportunity to consider what the best combination of working from home vs on campus will be when restrictions ease.   GYYMI - What has been the biggest impact of COVID-19 on the AIF and your customers?   STEVE - When the traditional fitness industry was switched off overnight that obviously had a significant impact on the AIF. We pride ourselves on providing qualifications that lead to careers in fitness. When it was unknown what a future in fitness would look like or when Gyms and Fitness Studios would reopen it created some uncertainty in the market. With the recent announcements that the Fitness Industry is once again open we have seen an increase in the number of students wanting to enter the fitness industry as there are going to be a lot of opportunities. From a customer perspective our face-to-face students quickly needed to adapt to an online mode of learning and we were very appreciative of their understanding and support.   GYYMI - There is a lot of talk in the business community surrounding the need for businesses to innovate to stay alive and remain relevant. How have you had to change how you operate both in the short and long term?   STEVE - Despite the COVID-19 period being a very difficult one there will be a lot of learning and opportunities created. I don’t think a business's need to innovate is anything new, the need has simply been intensified by recent events. We continue to look at ways of improving our student and team experience through the use of integrated systems that are underpinned by seamless integration. As long as businesses have their customers at the centre of their decision making they will remain relevant and better prepared to innovate in the right direction.   GYYMI - Have you seen any positives that have come out of this shut down period for your business and indeed the industry itself?   STEVE - For the AIF we have been able to swing to a full online business, it has given us the opportunity to reassess our strategy and ensure we are offering a balanced mix of online and face to face education. We were very happy to run the ‘ Upskill During Downtime ’ Campaign through the AIF and Network where our goal was to positively impact 10,000 fitness professionals by offering free education. It was a nice way to give back to our Industry and the passionate professionals within it.We have also had the ability to engage our expert coaches on some special projects with less on campus delivery, and their input is creating some exciting developments in our key programs!   For the Fitness Industry it has forced a number of providers to look at complementary technology solutions to support their members, never before has there been such a high uptake of virtual fitness supported by a new wave of training options.   GYYMI - What major changes do you see happening with regards to the Gym / Trainer relationship as Gyms look to reopen their doors?   STEVE - There will be 2 groups of PTs, those that can’t wait for the doors of their Gym’s to reopen and those that have identified an alternate way of conducting sessions to service their clients. A number of our partners are offering some great re entry incentives to their PT teams to give them the opportunity to reestablish their client base within Gyms and Fitness Studios. PT’s have always been a really important group as they assist member retention through offering expert advice, it will be interesting to see what creative ways PT’s and their gyms can come back together as they assist their members and clients to achieve their health and fitness goals.   GYYMI - Do you see any changes to the traditional pricing and membership models in which gyms and fitness studios have survived on up and until now?   STEVE - Yes, however this isn’t different to any other period. The Fitness Industry and gyms / fitness studios within it have remained viable through evolving their business to remain contemporary in the prevailing market conditions. As the Fitness Industry gets back to work new trends will materialise, the use of physical facilities vs virtual fitness will continue to adjust and technology will continue to provide consumers with additional options. Gyms and Fitness Studios that have a balanced approach between onsite workouts and virtual workouts will be best placed to balance their offering to find the right mix for their members. What a member is prepared to pay will simply be an outcome of the value of the service offered.   GYYMI - At GYYMI, we have developed an App that connects Gyms and Trainers, offering a new model of “gym rental by the hour” to Trainers and their Clients. This new model has no lock-in contracts – Do you think the Australian Fitness Industry is ready to adopt such a flexible model?   STEVE - I believe the Fitness Industry is ready for innovation as evidenced by some great technology that is complementing our traditional services. The importance of flexibility has been a huge theme during COVID-19 restrictions and gyms and trainers have had to be flexible and adapt to the changing environment.   GYYMI - Do you think there is a chance that qualified trainers, who have previously left the industry, may be enticed back, even on a part-time basis, if they have a more flexible “pay-by-the-hour” gym rental model?   STEVE - As the Fitness Industry has evolved we have seen a shift from fitness complementing a career to fitness becoming a career. If a PT was looking for a more flexible approach to work with a gym a ‘pay as you go’ type model could be appealing. This needs to be considered in the context of risk ensuring that the Gym / Fitness Studio, PT’s and Clients are all covered from an insurance perspective.   GYYMI - Now for the big question…What do you think the Fitness industry will look like upon reopening and when do you believe it will get back to ‘normal’?   STEVE - It will never look the same as it did pre COVID-19, the phased reopening will test the Fitness Industry as costs are turned back on and members are phased back into Gyms and Fitness Studios. More people than ever will be willing to invest in Personal Trainers with more trainers reaching more people in more contemporary ways. We have been reminded of how vital our health and wellbeing is, so I actually think the fitness industry will go from strength to strength.   GYYMI - Thank you very much Steve.   The Australian Institute of Fitness is the largest fitness training organisation in Australia with campuses located in and around every major Australian city.   For further information regarding The Australian Institute of Fitness, please contact info@fitness.edu.au or visit the website at fitness.edu.au GYYMI - for gyms and trainers - GYYMI is an Australian innovation and is the best personal assistant for your gym or training business.

No bigger was when the Hyperbeat co-founders woke up to the news that the fitness industry were to shut their doors until future notice. Hyperbeat specialises in manufacturing custom activewear that businesses can brand with their logo, specifically for the fitness industry. In one night 100% of their customer base were shutdown. The Hyperbeat team called a crises meeting and got working on exploring how they could assist their customer base and still maintain a reliable order stream. The team struck gold when they re-purposed an online store option they had been testing during 2019. The concept was simple. The gym owner or fitness business sends in their logo and the Hyperbeat team does the rest, simple. They create the business owner a fully functional online activewear store to sell their own designs. All FREE of charge. Allowing the owner to mark-up the items with profits being paid out to the store owners account on a weekly basis. With the rush for trainers to get their business online, this was a hassle free and cost effective way to sell their merchandise and let their members support them. On launch Hyperbeat was inundated with over 100 store requests on the first day. The store owners averaging $542 in weekly profits. Income that went a long way during these uncertain times. Hyperbeat have reported 400% increase in orders since launch. So much so they have had to actually employee more staff to keep up with demand. So how does is all work? Well the secret to Hyperbeats success is their simplicity of use. The business owner doesn’t need to do anything. The team will create custom active wear designs on their own high quality active wear range that they manufacture. There are no minimum order requirements, which allows the fitness business owner to promote their store to their client base while Hyperbeat will fulfil the orders and send the owner the profits. Hyperbeat stated the free online store option has been so popular that international fitness businesses started requesting stores to be made for them. An innovative idea that has help many fitness business owners keep their doors open.   About Hyperbeat Hyperbeat is a custom active wear manufacture that services the wider Fitness Industry by creating high quality activewear that businesses can brand with own logo and sell to their member base. There are no minimum order requirements. They are an online start-up that has amassed a client book of over 1,500 gyms around Australia and quickly becoming the gold standard in the industry.

PATTY MILLS ANNOUNCES THE FORMATION OF THE TEAM MILLS FOUNDATION 2020-05-26T22:54:25Z patty-mills-announces-the-formation-of-the-team-mills-foundation SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (27 May 2020): Three-time Olympian, NBA Champion and proud Indigenous Australian Patty Mills announced today the formation of the Team Mills Foundation, a not for profit organisation dedicated to supporting and championing culture, diversity, women and underprivileged families and enacting positive change for the environment worldwide. Through innovative strategies and a creative approach, the Team Mills Foundation creates a new model for communities across the globe to come together, spark conversation and ignite action to achieve the ultimate goal of a brighter future for those who need it most.  The announcement of The Team Mills Foundation coincides with the start of National Reconciliation Week; a time for Australians to learn about the shared histories, cultures and achievements and strengthen the bonds with the wider Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. The theme for National Reconciliation Week for 2020 is “In This Together”, and much like the “All Hands In” mantra of the Team Mills Foundation, it represents how working as a collective can achieve powerful results. The Foundation is welded to the ideal of “community”, shared values and respecting traditions and is brought to life by Patty Mills’ passion and desire of giving back and thriving on the success and wellbeing of others. The mission for the Team Mills Foundation is simple: Make a positive, long-lasting impact on communities worldwide. “I am incredibly excited to announce the launch of Team Mills Foundation; an organisation built on taking courageous and ongoing action to bring long-lasting improvement to people’s lives.” says Patty Mills.  “Our Foundation is personal but relatable, as it reflects values that have been instilled in me by my previous generations and through our customs and traditions. Our vision is to make a tangible difference at the intersection of those values and people’s lives, shining light on critical issues as well as providing opportunities and pathways of success to empower and unlock people’s tremendous potential.”    “I play basketball, and I’m grateful for what the sport has provided for me and my family, but I’m even more appreciative for the voice and platform that has come along with it. It has allowed me to follow through with my successes on the court to inspire, support and make change in other people's lives, especially the ones who need it most.” “Striving for greatness in my field, to create history, to accomplish the unimaginable - sure, it's for me, but it turns out -  it isn’t. It’s for everyone and everything that will be directly impacted by this Foundation.” The Team Mills Foundation will strive to bring awareness and opportunities to the issues and causes that align with the six core values that the Foundation is built upon: FAMILY. Having a greater understanding of who you are, where you come from and appreciating the people that have helped you. Being the best person you can be so that you can support and inspire your loved ones. ENVIRONMENT. Doing our part by giving back to our environment to ensure our next generation understands the values of caretaking for our earth. This will also be a way to protect, preserve and keep traditional cultures alive through the knowledge and practices used by Indigenous peoples. CULTURE. Keeping the culture alive. Recognising, protecting and preserving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and traditions. Through a creative approach, constantly finding ways to bridge the gap between traditional and modern society.  PATHWAYS AND OPPORTUNITIES. Striving for greatness by creating pathways and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to excel in their given fields or interests.  EMPOWERING WOMEN. Giving women a platform and voice to feel empowered, confident, and strong by supporting them in that role.   MULTICULTURAL AND DIVERSITY. Understanding and recognising multicultural diversity with the means to appreciate and learn from the differences, to celebrate and build on the similarities.  Through collaborative, community-focused partnerships and activations the Team Mills Foundation aims to work closely with local groups and organisations to put a spotlight on important causes and innovative projects and as well as put practices in place for long-term, sustainable solutions. In 2019, “The Community Water Project” was launched in partnership with Zero Mass Water and Australian Indigenous Basketball; an initiative aimed at providing clean, sustainable drinking water for six very remote drought-stricken Indigenous communities.  More recently, the #GiveMamaCoffee Mother’s Day Drive brought together the community of San Antonio to support eight local coffee shops who had been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, encouraging the community to shop small, but think big. To further the campaign’s reach nationally and internationally, a “GoFundMe” page was set up to receive virtual coffee donations. The #GiveMamaCoffee Mother’s Day Drive raised over $100,000USD with all funds donated to the Family Violence Prevention Services - Battered Women and Children’s Shelter of San Antonio, Texas. Putting knowledge in practise, The Team Mills Foundation are thrilled to partner with The Firesticks Alliance, a relationship that stemmed from a recent trip to Australia in March whilst visiting the bushfire-affected communities. Learning from Indigenous land management expert Victor Steffenson and The Firesticks Alliance Indigenous Corporation, Team Mills Foundation aims to share the knowledge of cultural burning practices, and improved ‘reading’ of country, to help restore the land. By continuing to educate and spread awareness of these practices, there is much evidence that, if adopted, could greatly benefit not only Australians, but all people worldwide. More details surrounding this dynamic partnership will be revealed at a later date,  To learn more about the values and causes of the Team Mills Foundation and how to get involved, visit teammillsfoundation.org or follow the Foundation on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube using #TeamMillsFdn and #AllHandsIn. -ENDS- About Team Mills Foundation The Team Mills Foundation is dedicated to supporting communities around the world; from environmental and wildlife conservation efforts, to providing clean drinking water for communities, supporting women and children shelters and giving a voice to minorities through multiculturalism and diversity. No matter the challenge, The Team Mills Foundation are going all hands in on the things that hit home. Together, we can make a positive change and long lasting impact worldwide.

Mel Baker - father, brother, grandfather, almost great grandfather, mate, mentor and to most, we're sure you'd agree, an inspiration. Mel’s driving passion for starting Ride-Tek MTA was to establish a Motorcycle Training organisation which would become the “One-Stop-Shop” in Training.  Over the 20 years of successful operation, Mel goal had achieved his goal. Ridetek MTA now offers a very comprehensive, diverse list of courses to suit every level of riding skill.   That list is unmatched within the Motorcycle Training industry. As a leader in our industry, he had a huge impact on the biking community, and he has always been especially passionate about rider safety. We're sure you all have your own stories about Mel and the legacy he has had in building confidence and instilling safe riding, whether it be with yourself, a family member or friend. Each person that works at Ride-Tek was hand chosen by Mel, and he chose us all for the amazing qualities we have as individuals and in our teachings. And we will be forever grateful to have been given the honour to meet someone like Mel. To each and every one of us, he was family. Mel built Ride-Tek with alot of hard work, determination, heart and soul, and he has definitely left an impact in this world. He was so many things to so many different people on so many levels of life, there's not enough words to sum him up. He was an amazing man. So with regret, we say good bye, to a man with an amazing vision, heart and soul. Forever here, never gone xxxxx
