Hisense South Africa fait don d’un échographe HD60 au Peninsular Maternity Trust pour la maternité de Mowbray

LE CAP, Afrique du Sud, le 6 août 2022 /PRNewswire/ — À l’occasion d’une cérémonie de donation le 28 juillet, Hisense, fabricant et fournisseur d’appareils électroniques et médicaux à haute performance, a offert un appareil d’échographie haute résolution de pointe, l’échographe Hisense HD60, au Peninsula Maternity Trust pour la maternité de Mowbray pour annoncer sa collaboration et sa contribution à la maternité de Mowbray et au département de la santé du Cap-Occidental.

La maternité de Mowbray, située au Cap, est la plus grande maternité d’Afrique du Sud spécialisée dans les soins aux femmes présentant des grossesses à haut risque. Le professeur Ntusi, qui est président et médecin-chef à l’université du Cap (UCT) et au Groote Schuur Hospital, a gravi le Kilimandjaro en décembre dernier pour recueillir des fonds afin d’acheter un nouvel échographe pour le service d’anesthésie de l’hôpital.

Hisense South Africa a fait don d’un échographe HD60 en réponse aux efforts du Professeur Ntusi.  La réception de cet appareil d’échographie de pointe doté de capacités de diagnostic améliorées fonctionnant grâce à l’IA intégrée relèvera le niveau de soins de la maternité de Mowbray et offrira de meilleures chances aux femmes à risque tout en stimulant le moral du personnel.

« Nous sommes très fiers de pouvoir faire don de cette machine à la maternité de Mowbray et au département de la santé du Cap-Occidental ; nous espérons et souhaitons que cela changera la vie des communautés environnantes en améliorant les capacités technologiques et médicales de l’hôpital tout en offrant aux professionnels de santé une innovation technologique de qualité et un soutien qui facilitera un peu leur vie professionnelle », a déclaré Ronele Prince,  responsable des ventes médicales chez Hisense.

Hisense a conçu l’échographe HD60 pour offrir aux médecins une imagerie plus claire et à plus haute résolution affichée sur son écran de diagnostic 21,4″.  L’appareil est livré avec une variété de sondes échographiques, ce qui le rend bien adapté pour répondre à plusieurs besoins de l’hôpital en matière d’anesthésie, d’obstétrique, de gynécologie et d’interventions cardiovasculaires.

L’échographe Hisense HD60 a été utilisé dans plus de 30 hôpitaux à travers la Chine, aidant à diagnostiquer plus de 50 000 cas. Pour son échographe HD60, Hisense a obtenu le marquage CE pour les dispositifs médicaux en décembre 2021 et la licence SAHPRA en Afrique du Sud en janvier 2022.  En avril de cette année, Hisense a obtenu sa première commande de six échographes HD60 en Afrique du Sud, une étape importante pour devenir une marque de renommée internationale dans l’industrie de l’équipement médical.

Mboma’s time was the third fastest just behind Nigerian sprinter Favour Ofili who ran a time of 22.66 seconds.

Otjozondjupa Regional Swapo Party

The Otjozondjupa Regional Swapo Party Youth League (SPYL) conference officially kicked off at Otjiwarongo today.

Former national SPYL central committee member, Felix Haingura officiated the opening of the conference, which was also attended by Governor James Uerikua and regional party coordinator, Susan Hikopua.

Haingura in his remarks called on the youth league in the region to remain disciplined in order to win over other people in joining the party and desist tribalism and unite for a common goal of growing the party.

“We don’t want youth members who are joining the party with the intentions of becoming millionaires. We want young people who have a genuine course of serving the party in any structure at section, branch, regional or national levels,” he said.

Haingura is accompanied by Samuel Paulus and Ndahafa Hapulile, who are serving members of the national SPYL central committee.

More preparations needed for athletes ahead of championships

Lack of match fitness showed its tail in the wrestling events at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games, when team Namibia’s Romio Goliath and Jason Afrikaner found the going tough during the men’s 57 and 65 kilograms (kg) freestyle categories at the Coventry Sports Arena.

Afrikaner was the first Namibian athlete that competed when the wrestling events started on Friday and he was eliminated by George Ramm of England in the quarterfinals after a 0-7 score.

His teammate Goliath on Saturday also found the going tough against Ali Asad of Pakistan who beat him 0-10 in their 57kg category.

The Namibian wrestlers showed the skills and moves of good wrestlers on the wrestling floor mats but all their hard work did not pay off as their opponents were more skilful and had several international fighting experiences to their names.

In an interview with Nampa on Saturday Goliath said Namibia is not very far from the rest of the world in wrestling.

“I enjoyed my fight but you could see that my opponent was much better than me as he is a champion and a favourite in our category alongside India’s Olympic Games silver medallist Ravi Dahiya,” he said.

He added that competing at the Commonwealth Games has gained him knowledge and experience that he will apply when he competes in other international fights.

“These are my first international games. I had a tough fight but with more exposure and international competition, I can improve. The best way to learn is competing at more international competitions which in a way will help in gaining experience,” Goliath said.

Meanwhile, team coach Luis Fercelledo Paz told this agency that with exposure to international competitions his wrestlers would do better for themselves and their country.

“We have African Games coming up next year in Ghana and it will be good if these athletes get more international competitions as preparations for those games,” he said.

Fercelledo added that training alone is not good enough if you want to produce champions.

“We are everyday busy at our gym in Katutura training and I am proud that they came to display what I have taught them, but what these wrestlers need is more competitive fights which will give them skills that can’t be taught in the gym,” Fercelledo said.

Mboma looking forward to competing in the 200m final

Mboma’s time was the third fastest just behind Nigerian sprinter Favour Ofili who ran a time of 22.66 seconds.

The final of the women’s 200m at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games will be held at the Alexander Stadium on Saturday at 22h44 Namibian time.

Mboma said being out of the track for a long time slowed down her progress and is however happy to have reached the final of her event at the games.

“I feel good and looking forward to the final. My body feels good and the thoughts I had of probably reinjuring myself are no more there therefore I am ready for the final and will give it my all,” said Mboma.

Meanwhile, another Namibian athlete expected to compete on Saturday in the 5000m runner is Daniel Paulus who will be making his debut at the games and will be fighting for the silverware at 21h10 alongside 2022 Commonwealth Games 10 000m gold medallist Jacob Kiplimo from Uganda and several Kenyan elite athletes.

On Friday night at the Alexander Stadium, Namibia’s 400m sprinter Ivan Danny Geldenhuys missed out on a spot for the men’s 400m final that will be held on Saturday night after finishing fourth in his heat.
