Kiio's interface is simple and easy for members to use right away - with no waiting for equipment, scheduling a clinical consult, or learning how to use sensors or motion tracking.

Kiio's personalized exercise therapy and interactive virtual coaching is easy for members to follow and empowers them to find musculoskeletal pain relief. Madison, WI, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kiio has expanded its proven low back pain management and prevention program to include programs for knee, neck, and hip pain. Multiple claims-based studies have proven Kiio’s ability to reduce the physical and financial costs of low back pain. Kiio’s new programs for knee, neck and hip use this same evidence-based approach to deliver simple, easy and effective MSK therapy directly to a member’s smartphone or tablet. Members can conveniently use Kiio whenever and wherever it’s best for them. Kiio’s quick-start solution doesn’t require waiting for equipment, scheduling a clinical consult, or learning how to use sensors or motion tracking. Like its innovative low back pain management program, Kiio’s new digital programs for knee, neck and hip integrate advanced software and clinical practice guidelines to evaluate member fit. Kiio’s Care Path OptimizationSM screens over 80% of members into Kiio, placing them into the therapeutic track best suited to their specific joint pain and symptoms. For those that don’t screen into a Kiio program, Kiio works with its clients to link members to the most appropriate in-network external care. Kiio’s uses technology to deliver on-demand, personalized exercise therapy and interactive virtual coaching. Kiio’s AI dynamically adapts the program to member feedback – personalizes secure messages, proactively coaches with in-app alerts, monitors progress and advances members as they feel better. Members always have the option to access live 1:1 Care Team support if or when they want it. Another unique component of Kiio’s digital MSK care is the use of its proprietary algorithms to deliver the right education at the right time. Kiio collaborated with renowned pain specialist Dr. Adriaan Louw, Director of the Therapeutic Neuroscience Research Group and author/co-author on over 50 peer-reviewed articles on spine and joint disorders and pain science, to develop custom education for members on easing pain, managing flare-ups and modifying behavior for sustained improvement. Alex Kramer, Vice President of Product, led the strategy and development of these new programs to combat pain across the body. “We’ve created a seamless member experience integrating multiple joints that gets members moving and achieving their pain management goals – from prevention, to managing acute issues, to improving chronic conditions,” states Kramer. “Over the rest of the year, we’ll be launching additional joints to further increase Kiio’s ability to serve the broadest population possible with convenient, individualized and effective digital MSK care that provides members relief without meds, invasive diagnostics or surgery.” Kiio has a proven track record of delivering value – both short- and long-term – to its members and its health plan and employer clients. More than 60% of members have less pain within 1 week of using Kiio, and 92% say they would recommend Kiio to a friend. Kiio has completed four longitudinal claims-data studies with clients, which demonstrated between 42% and 72% lower medical spend and up to 87% lower opioid use for those who used Kiio. While Kiio CEO Lydia Zeller is proud of Kiio’s proven ability to reduce pain, improve function, and increase productivity and ROI, she likes to highlight Kiio’s immediate availability. “With Kiio a person in pain can answer screening questions at 9:00 PM on a Friday, download Kiio, do their first personalized exercise therapy routine in 7 minutes, repeat the next 2 days, and be on their way to feeling better by the end of their weekend. That’s impactful.” Zeller shares Kramer’s enthusiasm for Kiio’s product expansion, “We’ve had such great results with Kiio. Rolling out Kiio programs for neck, knee and hip pain fits perfectly with our mission to bring innovative approaches to increase access to MSK care that’s proven to work quickly and get people back to doing the things they love.” About Kiio Kiio is changing the way employers, health plans and members manage musculoskeletal (MSK) pain.

Voter ID plan is a thinly veiled Tory power grab. Readers respond to the government’s move to make photo ID mandatory at polling stations, announced in the Queen’s speech this week
TORONTO — Lisa MacLeod, Ontario's Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries, says the province hasn't verbally approved the CFL's return-to-play protocols and there's no timeline for it to do so. "No, we have not added our name yet to signing off on that," MacLeod told reporters Thursday during a conference call. "We continue to work with them (CFL) at the public-health table . . . but to this point and time, no, the chief medical officer of health in Ontario has not yet signed off on a return-to-play protocol. "I don't have a timeframe that I can provide you with because the process in the back end really is the league coming to us with a proposal, my team working with them to refine it to go to the health command table and then health comes back with a number of different queries. So the sooner we can land on it the better, obviously, but at this point and time I could not give you or provide you with a definitive timeline." Ontario becomes the second province to state it hasn't provided verbal approval of the CFL's return-to-play proposal. Last week, B.C. government officials offered a similar sentiment following a television report that stated the six provinces with CFL franchises had verbally approved the return-to-play protocols. The CFL didn't play football in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and had originally planned to stage a full 18-game season starting in June 2021. Last month, the league pushed back the start of the campaign to Aug. 5 and reduced the number of games to 14, subject to the state of the pandemic. The alteration resulted in the Grey Cup game being rescheduled for Dec. 12 in Hamilton instead of Nov. 21. "It is my hope that Hamilton will be home to the Grey Cup this coming fall," MacLeod said. "Obviously, public health conditions will continue to dictate whether that's possible or not. "The last I heard this week is the threshold for a return-to-play for the CFL (is) quite high. We do expect that they would be able to meet them. We would expect they would be similar to the NHL and AHL return-to-play model." Last month, CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie stated it was the league's hope that when it resumed play, it could be with limited fans in the stands. The suggestion has been made that with more Canadians being vaccinated, upwards of 5,000 fans could be allowed to attend football games. That would provide some economic boost for franchises, which rely heavily upon ticket sales to generate revenue. A CFL source has often told The Canadian Press the league lost between $60-and-$80 million last year by not having a season. The source has spoken on the condition of anonymity because the CFL has not publicly stated its 2020 financial losses. But MacLeod finds it hard to believe that fans would be allowed into stadiums for CFL games. "I don't have a crystal ball, but I think it might be a bit ambitious for two reasons," she said. "One is we have to make sure we have an adequate supply of vaccine and it is into the arms of the population. Rapid antigen testing is another issue." The other point, MacLeod said, is just how comfortable many Ontarians would be with congregating in public. "That's a fear I have, not just for sports but also for live music," she said. "And while there will be some committed fans who'll want to get into those stands, there are a number of people in Ontario today that are still far too reticent given the public health restrictions and the current COVID reality across Ontario." MacLeod did express optimism regarding the CFL's target date of Aug. 5. "Look, my hope is in a couple of weeks we're going to be in a really good position with a lot of vaccinations, case counts going down, pressure on our hospitals being relieved that some of my sectors can reopen," she said. "Hopefully most of them will be able to reopen . . . so my hope is that is not too soon and we will look at that date as probably not too ambitious. "Really protecting athletes and their respiratory function is going to be absolutely critical but I think we should work toward an August date. If we have to push that out, they will but we'll definitely work with them to see what art of possible is." MacLeod said she has not spoken recently with Toronto Blue Jays officials about if or when the baseball team can return to Rogers Centre. The franchise is currently playing games in the U.S. with plans to relocate soon to Sahlen Field in Buffalo, N.Y. "I haven't had a conversation in recent months with the Blue Jays," she said. "That's not to say that those in my ministry haven't been in conversations with them but I would be happy to follow up with them. "Obviously we are very proud of the Toronto Blue Jays. They're going to be very key to our economic recovery and our social recovery when we come out of COVID." This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 13, 2021.

PARMA, Italy — Canadian tennis star Bianca Andreescu has withdrawn from next week's event in Parma, Italy, with what the WTA Tour describes as "continuing illness." The WTA announced Andreescu's withdrawal Thursday while adding Serena and Venus Williams have accepted wild-card berths in the WTA 250 event. Andreescu, the word No. 7, was scheduled to return to action at the Italian Open after retiring from the final of Miami Open with a foot injury last month, then testing positive for COVID-19 upon arriving in Spain for the start of clay-court season. But the Mississauga, Ont., native withdrew from the WTA 1000 tournament, citing Italy's health and safety protocols as a reason. "Although I have tested negative following my isolation period in Madrid and having been back in full training the last few days, the Italian government rules put me at risk of being isolated again if I travel to Italy,'' Andreescu said in an Instagram post before the Italian Open began. Andreescu, the 2019 U.S. Open champion, reached the final of the Miami Open last month before retiring against Australian Ashleigh Barty after falling awkwardly in the match and suffering a foot injury. Andreescu was also forced to miss 15 months after a knee injury and the early stages of the pandemic, returning to play in the 2021 Australian Open. After winning her first-round match, Andreescu lost in straight sets to Hsieh Su-wei of Taiwan in the second round. This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 13, 2021.

Four northern heritage projects are receiving a boost of funding from a $1.5 million fund created by Library and Archives Canada. Archive projects in Inuvik, N.W.T., and Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, were among the recipients, as well as one spearheaded by the Council of Yukon First Nations (CYFN). In the N.W.T., the Inuvialuit Game Council received just over $35,000 for a "traditional knowledge repository." In Yukon, CYFN's Archive's Access Project received roughly $52,000 in funding. In Nunavut, the Kitikmeot Heritage Society received just over $100,000 for two projects — one to help with digitization, and another to help increase engagement with digital heritage resources. "The DHCP's funding has made a real difference in [our] capacity to record video interviews, and edit and translate them for export to our YouTube channel," Darren Keith, a senior Researcher with the Kitikmeot Heritage Society, is quoted as saying in the release. "Having local Inuinnait staff that have the capacity to do this work on a daily basis will help immensely in our efforts to preserve Inuinnait traditional knowledge." The money comes from Library and Archives Canada's Documentary Heritage Communities Program, which is funding 41 projects across the country aimed at preserving Canada's "continuing memory" and making it more accessible to Canadians. Since its creation in 2015, the fund has allocated $10.5 million across the country. Another round of applications to the fund got underway in fall 2020.

SAN FRANCISCO, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman urges Romeo Power, Inc. (NYSE: RMO) investors with significant losses to submit your losses now. A securities class action has been filed and certain investors may have valuable claims. Class Period: Oct. 5, 2020 - Mar. 30, 2021Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 15, 2021Visit: http://www.hbsslaw.com/cases/RMO Contact An Attorney Now: RMO@hbsslaw.com 844-916-0895 Romeo Power, Inc. (NYSE: RMO) Securities Fraud Action: The complaint centers on Romeo’s misrepresentations and omissions concerning its access to battery cells, a key component of the company’s battery modules and packs. During the class period, Romeo emphasized the company’s 4 key battery cell supply partners, which in turn eliminated supply chain risks and support its lofty revenue projections ($11 million for 2020 and $140 million for 2021). The company repeatedly assured investors it had sufficient long-term contracts to supply enough battery cells even in the face of the tight supply. But the truth emerged on Mar. 30, 2021, when Romeo released a dismal outlook for 2021, reducing its 2021 guided revenues by a whopping 71% – 81%, claiming the shortfall stemmed from a shortage of battery cells. On an earnings call later that same day, management elaborated on the supply constraint, admitting that Romeo depended on just 2 (not 4, as previously touted) battery cell suppliers. Analysts were shocked by news, with Morgan Stanley slashing its Romeo share target price from $12 to $7, citing the battery cell supply chain risk not previously contemplated and the dramatically lower 2021 revenue estimate as the drivers. In response to this news, Romeo shares declined $2.04 per share, or almost 20%, in a single trading day. “We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving Romeo misled investors by misstating its true supply chain risks,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.
