While companies can’t control the market forces at play, they can take action to mitigate the risk and impact of supply chain disruption.

How To Control a Radio Frequency (RF) Process

The radio frequency welding and manufacturing process uses electromagnetic energy and pressure to fuse and permanently bond vinyl, thermoplastic, and coated materials to produce a specific product - all according to customer requirements. Using this RF sealing process, a distinct, one-piece perpetual bond is formulated that is both solid and resistant to ripping or tearing. But how is this process controlled, and with what specific tools? Read on.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021 Media Orthopaedic Reporting Excellence (MORE) Awards. Presented annually to U.S.-based journalists, the MORE Awards acknowledge accurate reporting of musculoskeletal health news topics and celebrate the role media play in accurately educating and informing patients about musculoskeletal health issues, innovative bone and joint treatments, preventative care and patient recovery.

Entries were judged by a panel of orthopaedic surgeons and evaluated for overall quality and medical accuracy. The winners of the 2021 awards include health and medical writers, photographers and freelance reporters from print, broadcast and online media outlets. From heart-warming patient stories to perspectives on orthopaedic innovations and treatment options, the award recipients covered an array of bone and joint-health topics.

“Having trusted sources of information that increase the public’s knowledge of bone and joint conditions and issues that impact patient care is important,” said Daniel K. Guy, MD, FAAOS, AAOS President. “We gratefully acknowledge the media’s commitment to delivering compelling and accurate reporting. The AAOS is honored to sponsor the MORE Awards, a long-standing program that recognizes the positive impact that journalism plays in sharing stories of patients’ perseverance and their successes.”
