Good Morning to one and all

  I am one of the patients of your prestigious Medical Center last Tuesday, January 27, who had undergone Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). I wish to thank all the staff/employees who extended their unselfish and dedicated assistance while I was at the Center.  Special mention to Dr. Hidegunda Santos, Medicard coordinator, the HMO staff (the two ladies from the billing section), Mr. Oliver Hufana and his staff (MRI section), and the nursing students who assisted at the MRI section.


Sometimes a happy face
Takes us to a cheerful place,
Where all the sadness
Turns into gladness
And troubles fade way...
Worries and fears dissipate
And happiness ensues...
So here's a bunch of happy smiles
Especially for you ALL …

 Have a nice DAY !!

“A smiling face is the mirror of our body and can heal sick patients” – Last March I came here for check-up. I was then referred to Dr. Espinosa so I went to his clinic. He sent me back here for EEG. The staff downstairs at the front office did the EEG for me right away so I had the time to go back to Dr. Espinosa who interpreted the result. It was done so fast that we had the time to go back to Ilocos that same day. I thank the staff very much. To Lorma as a whole, thank you so much and may God bless you all. All the staff and employees of Lorma Hospital are very friendly. I’m very glad to see their smiling faces every morning. Keep up your good work!!!

Thanks doctor!

“I have been supplied with newspapers everyday. I had been to big and modern hospital in Manila, and it’s only here that we are given newspaper.  Nursing personnel – prompt in doing things for patients’ comfort.  Very good big, and clean trash cans." 
- From Exec. Suite E

“My thanks to Dr. Gamboa and MCO in the ER who gave a helping hand during my life and death situation. I can’t forget all of you who gave me my second life and of course to our beloved God Almighty who used your hospital to help me survive. I was so satisfied. In behalf of my small kids, husband and my relatives, thank you very much! God bles you all!” – From 2A (Ward)

Lorma hospital has improved a lot when it comes to services. The personnel are so caring and they always offer a friendly smile. I am happy to see some interns who were my former students in high school. They are so cheerful and fresh looking which help the patients recover fast. LORMA EXCELLENT! – From Rm. 222



New at Lorma Medical Center: Nintendo Wii

What is it?

Wii is a video game system that uses a wireless controller capable of sensing position and motion, allowing users to interact with the game applications through physical movements. In Wii tennis, for example, users swing the controller (often called the Wii-mote) as if it were a tennis racket. Sensors in the controller transmit those motions wirelessly to the game console, which renders the player on the screen as a game character swinging a tennis racket in the same arc, with the same speed, sending the ball—hopefully—back over the net. The controller takes many forms, from a basic wand-like remote to golf clubs, fishing rods, or a fitness pad that senses the position and balance of a user standing on it.

Who's doing it?

Since its introduction in late 2006, the Wii has been a favorite of the gaming community, which has praised the system for transforming the gaming experience into a physical activity. Retirement communities have adopted the technology to encourage residents to exercise, and the Wii Fit, which includes a balance board to simulate movements from hula-hooping to yoga, has been popular with some fitness professionals. Physical therapists have embraced the Wii as a tool to help patients regain balance, coordination, range of motion, and muscle tone through an engaging, fun activity.

The application senses the position of the dancers and renders those people on a screen, which simultaneously shows dancers at several locations, providing a shared, virtual experience.

How does it work?

The Wii-mote includes an accelerometer, which discerns movement forces and speed, and an infrared camera that determines location relative to LED lights in a sensor bar, which it uses to triangulate its position. The Wii-mote transmits information about motion and position—as well as data about buttons that the user pushes on the controller—through Bluetooth wireless technology to the console. The console is connected to a display device, typically a television.

Why is it significant?

Being able to practice these activities in a virtual world, using an input device that depends on physical tasks, gives students/patients a "safe" environment to hone skills that can be applied in the real world. Other applications are designed as training tools for workers at nuclear power plants and engineers building medical devices. In each case, the technology provides a highly realistic approximation of a real-life experience, letting students practice and learn in a low-cost, low-risk setting.

The Wii can be used to create teaching exercises that approximate authentic physical activities for students. In medical training, for example, a Wii-based system could simulate intubation or chest compressions. Learning theorists are investigating ways in which kinesthetic learning and physical interaction with content influence understanding and retention.


The Truth About Wii Fit And Weight Loss

Wii Fit: Staying In Shape

From running to pushups to yoga, Wii Fit offers a variety of activities to help players lose weight and gain muscle strength. How can the game tell whether you're cutting corners on those lunges? It uses a "balance board," a slab that measures the player's movement, allowing Wii Fit to function as an all-in-one instructional tool, weight tracker and fitness coach.

Wii Fit: Fitness For All Ages

Wii Fit owes a lot of its popularity to Nintendo's advertising campaign, which appeals to people who don't normally play videogames.
