Two-year old Maia was born with only one ear due to a congenital deformity called microtia, and currently wears a headband that transmits sound to her brain using her skull as a bone conductor.
But new 3D technology being developed at Queensland University of Technology in Australia means Maia could soon receive a prosthetic ear that would cost less than a pair of glasses.
“She’s full of confidence. She’s full of love and life and I don’t want to take that away from her. It’s obviously going to be heartbreaking but the fact we can actually say no it’s okay, you will have an ear,” says Maia’s mother Chloe.

The use of wearable technology is still in its infancy but is growing at a rapid pace. 1 in 5 Americans now owns a wearable tech device. 56% of those consumers believe that the average life expectancy increases 10 years due to wearables monitoring vital signs.

The following infographic created by Northwestern University of Professional Studies illustrates how wearables are revolutionizing healthcare services. 
Infographic: How Wearables Are Revolutionizing Healthcare
The use of wearable technology is still in its infancy but is growing at a rapid pace. 1 in 5 Americans now owns a wearable tech device.  56% of those consumers believe that the average life expectancy increases 10 years due to wearables monitoring vital signs.
The future of wearables will not only help to cut healthcare costs for both consumers and employers, but can also provide numerous benefits for both insurance providers and subscribers.  Long-term wearable tech benefits include real-time payment adjustments, health lifestyle rewards as well as the ability to track recovery from medical procedures.
The following infographic created by Northwestern University of Professional Studies illustrates how wearables are revolutionizing healthcare services. The infographic highlights that 44% decrease in sick days for employees that wore wearable devices. Over the course of 25 years, it’s estimated that wearable technology and remote patient monitoring technologies could cut hospital costs and save more than $200 billion.

Millions of New Yorkers are overusing hospital emergency rooms and driving up everyone’s insurance premiums.

Out of every 100 ER visits, 20-30 of them were not significant enough to warrant emergency services

It costs insurance companies eight times more for a patient to be treated in an emergency room compared to a primary care office. Those costs eventually get passed along to all customers in the form of premium increases. "We're not telling you not to go to the ER but if you think it's not serious and if your physician is not available, there are options other than going to the ER," says Dr. Kerr.

If summer camp is on the agenda for this summer many kids will be required to get a camp physical.  Cure Urgent Care provides physicals to help assure families and camp staff that all kids have the fitness required for hiking, swimming, boating and other fun summer activities. 

At Cure we provide quick service, walk-in available 7 days a week. Through the end of March we’ll guarantee that the exam will cost you no more than $50.00 out of pocket.

There are several reasons for a check-up before camp, aside from being required by the camp or by the state.  Camp physicals help identify potential health hazards to make sure that camp activities are safe, Cure camp physicals identify pre-existing conditions, such as asthma and help make recommendations for medication or treatment, and identify any necessary immunizations that have not been completed. 
• A Camp physical at our urgent care center will include 
• Medical history to identify risks associated with participation
• Medical conditions that require treatment before camp
• Evaluate past injuries and healing process to determine need for additional rehabilitation, if required
• Review immunization (shots) status, and deliver recommendations where necessary

Most camps will provide a document or form for your physician to complete, please be sure to bring that form with you when you come.  While we require neither an appointment, nor any online forms, if you would like to save time, or plan your visit you may do your check in online or set up an appointment at our website http://get.cureurgentcare.com/online-appointment/
