An increasingly greying India, as life expectancy increases with medical technology and applications, comes with a growing demand for geriatric care. A significant part of geriatric care, and also care for people with disabilities, is prosthetics and orthotics to ensure mobility and better quality of life. Prosthetics and orthotics is a dynamic and growing space that involves medical treatment as well as designing, planning and fitting of mobility aids such as artificial limbs and braces. Prosthetists and orthotists rehabilitate people with mobility issues, and are significantly needed by senior citizens with physical issues that make them immobile or bedridden.

Elise Young, Bloomberg Published 8:38 am, Wednesday, April 11, 2018 Governor Phil Murphy's $50 million pitch for free community college excludes most New Jersey households in favor of the poorest students, the majority of whom already receive government aid. His spending proposal offers little relief to those attending four-year schools in a state with the nation's fourth-priciest public-university system.

"I'm concerned that pursuing a four-year degree might not be an option for many … [Read more...] about Murphy’s free-college plan leaves New Jersey four-year schools adrift
By Megan Barnes | [email protected] | Daily Breeze PUBLISHED: April 3, 2018 at 4:14 pm | UPDATED: April 9, 2018 at 5:59 pm When two new El Segundo City Council members are sworn in next month, the panel will have experienced a rotation of five new faces in two years. Lance Giroux, Maria Barden, Scot Nicol and Chris Pimentel are all seeking office for the first time, and they all say they were compelled to run by their love for the unique South Bay community nicknamed “Mayberry by the Sea.” The top two vote-getters in the April 10 election will replace Mayor Suzanne Fuentes and Councilman Mike Dugan, who decided not to run for re-election, and who have been criticized in recent years by the city’s politically active police union. Because city leaders moved elections from April of even-numbered years to March starting in 2022 to conform to SB 415, a law designed to boost voter turnout, the new terms will be just one month short of four years. The winners will join … [Read more...] about This El Segundo election will complete an entire City Council turnover in just 2 years
