Top 10 Workout Songs for October 2014

The Top 10 Workout Songs for October
Pop rules in this month's workout music recap. First off, you have the lingering effects of this year's MTV Video Music Awards. Collaborations pairing Ariana Grande with Zedd and Iggy Azalea with Rita Ora both received a significant boost in popularity following performances on this year's broadcast. Moreover, the show is where Taylor Swift debuted the first single from her new album. “Shake It Off” was the most popular, workout song in our monthly poll.

Moreover, at 160 beats per minute (BPM), it's the best song in the list for running.
Remixers also racked up three big tunes this month. Zedd makes his second appearance in the the list with an uptempo version of the summertime smash “Rude.” OneRepublic also find their latest release reworked for the club. Though both of those tracks are geared for the dancefloor, they'd be equally great for a jogging or walking. For a lower rep routine—like kettlebells or Pilates—you might check out the Surkin remix of Charli XCX's “Boom Clap.” At 93 BPM, it's on the slower side of things, but it's lives up to its title with thunderous production that'll power you through your next session.

On the whole, Top 40 tracks dominate this month's list. But, there should also be enough alternate versions—plus some crossover hits from upstarts like Kongos and Echosmith—to keep things interesting. So, if you're looking for something new to freshen up your gym playlist, you'll find 10 great places to start below.

Here's the full list, according to votes placed at Run Hundred--the web's most popular workout music blog.

Benefits of Mobile Medical Units

Benefits of Mobile Medical Units

Today, many hospitals and medical care offices are taking advantage of using mobile medical units, like the ones offered at Lifelinemobile.com and other mobile medical unit companies, to handle many of their medical procedures. You can learn more about these mobile units by visiting these websites. Mobile medical units offer several programs and services that some providers can’t invest in fully or don’t have the means to offer.

Mobile medical units offer their services using professionally qualified and skilled personnel as well as up-to-date technical equipment. The medical equipment used is stored in a vehicle that moves around from one place to another depending on where it is needed.

For instance, consider the MRI machine. MRI equipment is costly to operate, and hiring personnel to read the images is very expensive. Consequently, several surgery centers, hospitals and medical offices contract their MRI services out to a mobile unit. The mobile unit drives to a location where it is needed and provides the MRI services. In most cases, an appointment is scheduled ahead of time so that the MRI staff and patient are well prepared for the visit.

When the mobile unit arrives, the patient enters in the same way they would at a medical office or hospital. The mobile unit has courteous and professional staff members who are very familiar with operating the medical equipment. Depending on the community needs, the mobile unit might come around every couple weeks, monthly or quarterly depending on the desire of the medical office or hospital.

By contracting these services out to a mobile medical unit, they eliminate the need to construct rooms inside of hospitals to perform specific services. For example, some mobile units perform sleep studies. The hospital or medical office saves money by partnering with a mobile medical company to have their qualified personnel manage the testing from their mobile unit instead of using expensive hospital rooms.

The contract with the mobile medical company usually consists of a monthly fee. Others prefer to set up some type of billing and reimbursement plan. Most consider it easier to budget on a monthly fee contract.

All the parties involved benefit from this partnership. The benefit for the patient is that he or she won’t have to travel long distances to see their medical provider. The hospital isn’t losing their patient, so they benefit as well. The mobile medical unit benefits due to their contract with hospitals and medical offices and by offering their top quality services to the community around them.

Small But Mighty

Casters: Small but Mighty

It's the little things in life that can do so much for us, yet so many people don't stop to think about the valuable service they provide. One such example of little things providing a big service is the caster. Paired with a wheel, and often referred to as a caster wheel, the caster is a small invention comprised of plastic and/or metal that enables wheels to be attached to the bottom of furniture, appliances, and heavy machinery - and additionally, also allows for the wheels to roll back and forth, and sometimes pivot and swivel.

If you have ever helped a family member move a refrigerator to do some much-needed cleaning, or if you have rolled across an office space in a desk chair, then you are already familiar with casters, even if you didn't know that's what they were called. While furniture and appliances may not decrease in weight simply because of the addition of casters, the presence of the wheels makes it easier for those items to be moved. Ask any employee of a moving company or warehouse about casters, and they'll surely tell you how much they appreciate their existence.

In a medical environment, you'll find that casters are both in high demand and high use. From the nurses who rely on mobile laptop carts to the lab technicians who push around heavy x-ray and CT scanning equipment to the assistant nurses who move patients in their beds, medical casters are certainly found all over hospitals, doctors' offices, and other medical buildings.

Casters can also be found in many homes, and on more than refrigerators: sofas, standalone dishwashers, portable air conditioners, desks, office chairs, and those colored plastic stackable drawer units all come equipped with casters.

The nice thing about casters and caster wheels is that they are inexpensive; durable; and if one should break, replaceable. You can find casters of all sizes and weight limits at just about any hardware store, and manufacturers of specialized equipment will often sell replacement casters. If you should need a replacement caster, attempt to contact the manufacturer first and foremost, because if they have one, it's a guaranteed fit.
