Greenhouse and indoor growers are increasingly seeking more efficient, higher-output lighting solutions to reduce installation, operating and maintenance costs while increasing yield and plant quality. Recognizing the importance of maintaining consistency in harvest schedules while accommodating specific energy requirements, Fluence designed RAPTR to help enable cultivators to seamlessly retrofit their lighting solutions. In most cases, existing HPS electrical infrastructure such as cables or distribution panels can be reused for RAPTR—making it a true plug-and-play solution.

“Retrofitting a facility with LED technology opens the door to more light, creates opportunities for greater yields and ultimately increases revenue,” said Jordon Musser, chief product officer of Fluence. “RAPTR is designed to lower operating expenses for cultivators, increase light levels or even achieve both without changing the existing facility layout.”

Fluence’s ongoing global research exploring the effects of LED lighting on cannabis and produce crops has consistently shown that higher light intensities boost production at a nearly one-to-one ratio. Multiple Fluence research studies and customer trials found that, for every 1% increase in photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD), growers are achieving a corresponding 1% increase in yield. For commercial produce growers, increasing light output is certainly desirable but cannot come at the expense of energy efficiency. RAPTR achieves higher light levels than its HPS equivalent—boosting yields for cannabis and produce growers—while helping to optimize a facility’s energy usage.

“We are in the business of meeting a grower’s goals, whether through a 100% LED lighting strategy or a hybrid approach,” said David Cohen, CEO of Fluence. “Adding RAPTR to our suite of lighting solutions gives growers yet another option to optimize their facilities based on what retailers and consumers want. We look forward to collaborating with our global cultivators to design best-in-class lighting strategies tailored to their environments using RAPTR.”

Purposely designed to mitigate surface dirt and dust collection, RAPTR fixtures are IP67-rated and feature powder-coated surfaces for easy cleaning and chemical resistance. RAPTR will be featured inside Fluence’s booth (No. 05.524) at GreenTech Amsterdam from June 14 to June 16.

Spinal Cord Stimulation Delivers Improved Arm Function30.6.2022 18:30:00 EEST | Press release

ONWARD Medical N.V. (Euronext: ONWD), the medical technology company creating innovative therapies to restore movement, independence, and health in people with spinal cord injury, today announces a Nature Neuroscience publication showing the potential for ONWARD’s ARCIM Therapy to restore movement and function in hands and arms after spinal cord injury. Regaining hand and arm function is the highest priority for many people with cervical spinal cord injury. Even mild functional deficits in hand and arm function lead to significantly reduced independence and quality of life. It has historically been challenging to develop new therapies for hand and arm function because their movements are complex and multidimensional. Researchers in today’s Nature Neuroscience publication investigated a potentially more effective approach to improving motor control of the upper limbs after spinal cord injury – an implantable neurostimulation system that modulates the spinal cord region involved in contr
