The 2012 World Dressage Is Here!

The 2012 World Dressage Masters in Palm Beach is here! The World Dressage Masters will showcase some of the finest horses in the world in this yearly event that brings equestrian lovers together in admiration of these beautiful animals.

At the event, Miti-Gait, an affiliate of Sea Systems Group, will have its own booth throughout the course of the weekend.

The Miti-Gait, an offspring of the MitiGator Cushioning Material, is a floor mattress designed to reduce stress from violent impacts during transport. The floor mattress provides comfort and protection for the animal during most strenuous transport conditions.

The 2012 World Dressage event will be from held from January 26th-29th. If you have any questions or would like to place an order, please click on the media link below.

The anti-impact, anti-vibration pHow Miti-GAIT works.roperties of each Miti-GAIT mattress are attributed to what’s at its core – an extensively engineered cushioning system which utilizes advanced Air Channel Technology to dissipate energy from impacts and vibrations.  This patented cushioning system is known as MitiGator Technology™.  Researched and developed by SEA Systems Group Inc. and tested by the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and independent laboratories, Mitigator™ has been validated as a revolutionary technology that absorbs and dissipates energy from vibration, impacts, and even blasts!  The shock and vibration dampening features of the MitiGator™ reduces acceleration by over 90% in drop/impact tests, and attenuates up to 75% of whole body vibration.  Developed through a collaborative effort of engineers and equine veterinarians to address the problem of equine transport fatigue, the Miti-GAIT Equine Transport Mattress is now available to mitigate the harmful forces of road impacts, rumble, and vibration and allow your horse to be transported and arrive fresh, focused, relaxed, and ready to win.

The MitiGator And Skeletoes

Have you ever wanted to workout barefoot without actually being barefoot? Skeletoes, a five toe shoe combines the feel of being barefoot with the comfort of a running shoe. The soles of skeletoes are made of a thick rubber material that gives ample support and protection when running on hard trails or surfaces. The rest of the shoe is made out of Polyurethane material that makes the shoe light weight, durable, and water resistant.

The MitiGator Cushioning System, designed by Sea Systems Group  is a light weight cushioning material that provides protection from intense impacts and vibrations caused by external events. The MitiGator would be a great subsitute for the rubber sole beneath the skeltetoes since the MitiGator can replicate and improve the performance of the current rubber material used on the shoe.

Sea Systems Group already is developing shoe insoles that provide much needed protection for long distance runners who are subjected to constant pressure from running on hard surfaces. The MitiGator can provide the same protection for skeletoes and similar shoes. If you have any questions or would like to place an order, please click on the media link below.

 

The MitiGator™ Technology is an engineered cushioning system designed to protect people and equipment from these assaults and to allow them to continue to perform their jobs or enjoy their leisure time. The MitiGator™ uses patented air control technology working with over 4,000 surfaces per square foot to dissipate energy before it is transmitted to the body and thus help alleviate the problems.

The Concussion Epidemic

Head injuries in football are in the spot light as concussions and other head related injuries are becoming more prevalent. In October, a high school football player in upstate New York died after receiving a violent hit during play. ” An ambulance took the player to a hospital, and he was being transferred to a large medical center in Syracuse when his condition deteriorated. The ambulance turned around, but doctors were unable to save the the student’s life.”

A Purdue study on high school football players show that head related injuries are difficult to detect and aren’t as obvious until a brain scan is done on the athlete- meaning that many players may have suffered injury without even knowing it.  Severe head injuries can alter brain function leading to memory loss, headaches, and other symptoms. Purdue researcher Eric Nauman believes that football helmets are good at protecting against head fractures, however there not as good in protecting against concussions, according to Slate.com.

Severe injuries like concussions are difficult to diagnose increasing the chance that players can suffer long-term effects of their injuries well after the end of their careers. The equipment used in high school, college, and professional levels need to be fitted with the most advanced materials and cushioning systems that can reduce the risk of severe injury during play.  The right equipment can make a big impact when combating the concussion epidemic in organized football

The Death Of An Icon

Steve Jobs once said ” being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.”

Steve Jobs was a man who had a vision for the kind of products he wanted to produce for consumers. He has been called many things: visionary, genius, titan of industry, but Steve Jobs will be remembered as a man who simply wanted to change the world.

The death of Steve Jobs has put into perspective just how amazing Jobs was. Steve wasn’t concerned about impressing focus groups, he wanted to create products that he loved and enjoyed. He was more of an artist than a tech designer.  Today the world is better off because of Steve Jobs. His products have changed the way we live, communicate, and do business. Many companies, including our own, owe Steve Jobs a debt of gratitude for making products that make doing business easier and more efficient.

With all the problems in the world, we could certainly use more men like Steve Jobs to innovate, create, and make products that make the world a happier and more peaceful place.

It should be our sincere hope that with the death of Steve Jobs brings to life a new generation of innovators and entrepreneurs who can challenge the status quo  and follow their creative vision, just like Steve did. In his death, we celebrate a life that was full of accomplishment and triumph. Steve serves as an inspiration to that rebel within us that inspires us to chart our own course in the choppy waters of life. May you rest in peace Steve Jobs, you will always be remembered.

The New iPhone 5… I mean iPhone 4s

Yesterday the Apple universe was anticipating the much awaited iPhone 5 that was supposed to bring down the heavens and do your taxes all at the same time-instead, we got the iPhone 4s. Looking at the 4s, you’ll notice that it’s almost identical to the iPhone 4. So if you were looking for a wider screen and thinner frame, you’ll be disappointed.

What makes the iPhone 4s standout is its voice activated personal assistant Siri, which allows you to set up your daily calender, alarm, search for movie times, and other queries all through voice commands.

Seems impressive, however the Siri app is already available for the iPhone 4, so this is nothing we haven’t already seen before. Other subtle changes are its faster processor that is not noticeable  to the naked eye compared to the iPhone 4. Surely the iPhone 4s will make impressive sales numbers, but there was a wow factor missing when the phone was introduced yesterday.

The magic that was around previous phones just wasn’t there. Maybe it’s the absence of Steve Jobs, perhaps it’s just that the phone didn’t break any barriers like older phones.  Looks like we’ll have to wait a little bit longer for the iPhone 5.
