Milrem Robotics Delivered Two THeMIS UGVs to the Dutch Army OIRSCHOT, The Netherlands-- (BUSINESS WIRE/AETOSWire)-- The Robot and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Unit of the 13th Light Brigade of the Royal Netherlands Army received two THeMIS unmanned ground vehicles developed by Milrem Robotics in April for their Concept Development and Experimentation Project.
Milrem Robotics delivered the two UGVs in the middle of April for the Army’s project that looks into how to exploit the possibilities new unmanned platforms provide for increasing combat power and decreasing risk to soldiers.
The THeMIS UGVs were delivered in transport configuration together with initial spare parts and accessories. The company will also provide operator and maintenance training, tactical deployment know-how and life cycle support and upgrades during a two-year period.
“We are extremely proud to have the THeMIS in operation with the Royal Netherlands Army,” Kuldar Väärsi, CEO of Milrem Robotics stated. “Rigorous tests and combat exercises held in Europe, US and the Middle-East have proven that the THeMIS is an effective tool for dismounted troops and we have no doubt the Dutch Army will be more than satisfied,” he added.
“The THeMIS UGVs were chosen for their superior terrain skills – this 1,5-ton robot can effortlessly negotiate 30 degree slopes while carrying a payload of at least 750 kg with ease,” said Lieutenant Colonel Jules den Ouden, commander of the RAS unit.
The THeMIS’ capabilities were put to the test right after delivery in the tough Scottish landscape during an exercise where the RAS used unmanned ground vehicles for the first time.
“The THeMIS played a major role in the supply chain. Why would we need to go get ammo and set ourselves up as targets when the THeMIS can bring it to us?” the commander asked.
The THeMIS has been previously deployed in several military exercises for example Last Mile and Army Warfighting Experiment 2018 in the UK. One THeMIS UGV was recently deployed in Mali together with soldiers from the Estonian Defence Forces.

One of the 10 conditions for parents to seek medical attention, constipation among children is rising and is particularly affecting their self esteem Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 28 May, 2019—(AETOSWire)-- Reem visited Emirates Hospital - Jumeirah (EHJ) – an Emirates Healthcare company and an internationally recognised 100-bed beacon of progress in the region’s healthcare system after her 4-year-old son, Rayan complained of what she believed was diarrhoea. She sought medical attention after she realised something was wrong especially because Rayan was periodically releasing small quantities of loose stools.
On evaluation by Dr Sripradha Sudarsanam, a Specialist Paediatrician at EHJ, Rayan was diagnosed with chronic constipation.
“Many children who suffer from chronic constipation experience leaking of soft stools in their underwear which poses a big problem in their social and emotional dimensions. Because of the unconscious leaks, the children are almost always smelly and are being neglected and isolated in classroom by their peers. The leaky stools are the newly formed stool which trickles down through the hard stools stuck to the intestine. Sometimes vigorous pushing due to urge to defecate can cause a tear in the anal region and cause bleeding as well,” explained Dr Sudarsanam.
According to studies, 30 percent of children are affected by constipation at some point in their lives. When not adequately treated, chronic constipation can lead to haemorrhoids, anal fissures, bowel bleeding and faecal incontinence.
“Children who are improperly toilet-trained and lack fibre intake in their diet often complain of chronic constipation. Parents should ensure that children avoid processed food and eat food rich in fibre, such as fruits and whole grains. They must also monitor their child’s fluid intake and ensure that they drink between 1 to 1.5 litres of water each day,” said Dr Sudarsanam.
Constipation is a vicious cycle, and seeking medical attention at the right time can help avoid further complications in children while also helping their emotional and mental health from deteriorating.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 30 June 2019-(AETOSWire) In our daily struggle to keep our homes clean and hygienic, the paper towel is the first line of defence. Of the many brands available in the market, many lack the strength, absorbency, or hygienic standards to clean up big spills and stains. Fine Hygienic Holding is proud to announce the release of the latest tool in the battle for better hygiene: the Super Towel Pro, the only paper towel you will ever need again.
For years, paper towels were only suitable to handle small spills and stains, while bigger jobs were reserved for cloth towels and newspaper – but not any longer. The extraordinary strength and resilience of its 3-ply design, coupled with the ultra-absorbency its embossing pattern offers, make this the only towel a homeowner needs to keep a spotless kitchen, tackling any mess while outlasting and outperforming the competition. In fact, thanks to its ground-breaking 4D technology, which utilizes a new chemical engraving technique that was developed to improve critical paper properties such as resistance, bulk, and absorbency, Super Towel Pro can absorb and clean up to four times as much as the competition.
“The Super Towel PRO is the ultimate tool in the fight to keep homes hygienic and healthy, and we look forward to Fine customers everywhere to start experiencing the benefits of its exceptional design, powerful absorbency, and greater hygiene for themselves,” said Andrea Janjua, Chief Tissue Category at FHH. “Our paper towels are a cornerstone of our business, and we have poured our time and efforts into creating a product that is so effective and so reliable that it stands out as the clear choice for consumers across our markets”.
Reusing cloth towels around the kitchen can lead the build-up of unsafe and unhealthy bacteria that ends up on surfaces, plates, cups – and eventually food and drink. The single-use design and Fine’s patented SteriPro technology led to the Super Towel PRO becoming the first and only paper towel to be certified by ISEGA, the prestigious German food and hygiene standards institute.
In addition to its ISEGA certification, the Super Towel PRO has also been certified by the Family Hygiene Institute (FHI) as the only clean and hygiene towel in the world. The FHI, which operates under the patronage of the Medical Wellness Association (MWA), was founded to promote high standards of health and hygiene for products directed at families, and to reinforce these values around the world. *Source: AETOSWire
