Dolomite Works Together with New Life Medical to Attack Obesity

Las Vegas’ Dolomite Enterprises, the local leader for business computer care, management, and custom software has entered into an agreement to design and provide New Life Medical Group to a web based software system for New Life’s, “Let’s Play” program for overweight children between the age of 5 and 17. An age group where little has been addressed in regards to nutrition and exercise and even less is known about the long term benefits of such a program. The Let’s Play Program uses Patient Specific Investigative Analysis (PSIA) to design an affective, exciting and incentivized nutrition and exercise program for children. The PSIA system involves in-depth blood analysis, height to weight, hip to weight, BMI and other factors to develop a medically supervised, interactive, nutrition and exercise plan.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, which represents American pediatricians, points out that obesity isn't simply defined by a child's weight, but rather by something called "body mass index" (or BMI), a mathematical formula that takes into account both the child's weight and height. The increasing percentage of children suffering from obesity has put children at risk for complications of obesity both in childhood and adult life. A child who is overweight has a greater chance of becoming an overweight adult. A teen with "baby" fat has a 75 percent-plus chance of becoming overweight, putting them at high risk for diabetes, heart problems, cancer, high blood pressure and other serious diseases.

Let’s Play uses a point system to track kids participation and rewards them for completing the custom designed nutritional guideline and exercise program. The kids will be assigned a coach (trained clinician or medical personnel) and teammate (parent or friend) to help keep them on track. The kids will be rewarded for meeting their goals with hundreds of thousands of gifts donated by national and local businesses. Prizes include sporting goods, athletic apparel, toys, tickets to sporting events and vacations, among other prizes.

“We are very excited to get this program launched”, said Stephen White founder of New Life Medical Group and the Let’s Play Program. “Obesity in children is a real problem and we plan to use our program not only to benefit kids with immediate and obvious health problems today but by tracking progress and information over time we hope to provide the healthcare and medical industries accurate information in regards to the metabolism and true nutritional requirements of children.”

Dolomites web-based patient portal will allow the kids, teammates, coaches and doctors to input information, track points, train kids and show results. The prototype will be completed in approximately 30 days with the initial trial version due for release in 45 days. Nutritional information will outline a diet (which the kids are rewarded with points for maintaining), animated graphics will detail how exercises are performed, and the points system will incentivize kids to stay on track. Coaches and teammates will input information and progress will be tracked.

Help, Please!

I was reading an article about how we think we know the meaning of certain phrases, but they actually mean something else. I thought this was interesting as sometimes I use clich├ęs, and sometimes get corrected on my use of them. Then I thought what other things are there that we feel we know well but actually are completely mistaken. What do we do when we realize we have no clue as to what is going on?

Fortunately, everyone in the world is different and has different talents. So when we are stuck we go to the internet and search for a solution, or ask a friend or ask that friend if they know someone, etc. The solution is always out there and help is available. That way if you feel that you have failed at something don’t worry, there is someone out there that can help. You just got to go looking.

Fun Toys of the Future Today

If you think the Segway is awesome, you’ll get a kick out of this. It’s a unicycle meant for easier mobility inside the office or at the home. You move it just by leaning in the direction that you want to go. With its’ high powered lithium battery and its’ low speed motor you can get around with ease and comfort. I’m not that big of a fan of the Segway, but think that this would be fun to have. Take some time to click on the link above and see for yourself.
