ORGATEC 2018, the largest International Trade Fair for Furnishing and Management of Offices and Office Facilities was held from October 23 to 27 in Cologne, Germany. Internationally renowned creators and critics from Amsterdam, Berlin, and elsewhere in Europe were the judges of FRAME Awards critiquing global furniture manufacturer booths in four categories: Best Use of Colour, Best Use of Light, Best Use of Material, and Trade Fair Stand of the Year. Winners in these categories will be highlighted in the January/February edition of FRAME magazine.

ORGATEC 2018 was the best opportunity for KOKUYO to introduce cutting-edge functionality and innovative concepts of "360° sliding chair" to the European office furniture market.

Exhibition Overview
The theme of the KOKUYO booth was the idea of “Gliding in 360°.” To spotlight the “ing” office chair’s “gliding mechanism” that is its primary feature, the product was displayed in the form of dismantled parts hanging from six meters in the air, giving the booth a unique impact. Displays in the booth used sensors to help visualize body movements, with attendees actually sitting on the chair to experience “360º gliding.”

The feature of “360° Gliding Chair ing”
“360° Gliding Chair ing” is an office chair with a completely new concept to improve white-collar health and creativity.

The innovative “360° Gliding Chair ing” mimics the hip-strengthening action of sitting on a balance ball. Its 360° freely moving joints move according to the fine movement of the human body. To balance chair’s movement, the body naturally and perfectly maintain a correct sitting posture. This freedom of movement keeps the hips, waist and back muscles active while seated. Body pressure is also dispersed with the movement, reducing strain on the body.

Ipsen Presents the Results of the First in-Human Study of a Recombinant Fast-Acting Neurotoxin (rBoNT-E) at TOXINS 201917.1.2019 09:30Tiedote

Regulatory News: Results of the first in-human study of a recombinant neurotoxin are being presented at the TOXINS International Conference in Copenhagen. Ipsen’s recombinant BoNT serotype E (rBoNT-E) was investigated in a phase I study that demonstrated its safety and tolerability profile in healthy volunteers1. The study also reported that it has a faster onset of action and a shorter duration of effect, as well as a quick time to peak activity, in comparison with established BoNT-A products. Further studies will be initiated to establish potential aesthetic and therapeutic uses of this investigational therapy. “The application of recombinant techniques to create novel botulinum toxin-based medicines with different onsets and durations of action, will potentially offer clinicians the flexibility to choose the most appropriate neurotoxin for each patient, which is not an option today,” said Philippe Picaut, Pharm. D., PhD, Senior Vice President Research & Development for the Neuroscie
