FOGALE WILL UNVEIL ITS SENSATION TECHNOLOGY ON A REAL SMARTPHONE AT THE MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS IN BARCELONA FROM 2ND TO 5TH MARCH 2015 FOGALE will be present on BUSINESSFRANCE’s French Pavilion, HALL 5 BOOTH B41 POS. 13 Three years after introducing its "Sensation" technology, which adds highly innovative new control possibilities to conventional touchscreens by detecting the position of the fingers above and around the edges of the screen, FOGALE will unveil an Android Smartphone featuring incredible new possibilities.
We all think our Smartphones are much the same, and were right! All Smartphones have broadly similar features. Only their design provides some differentiation. Convinced that manufacturers should focus on the users and, in particular, on ‘naturalising’ the interface with these complex communication and entertainment devices, FOGALE delivers true 3D technology to your Smartphones touchscreen, making it possible to fundamentally change the way you think of and interact with it. Now you can have new user experiences such as:- A unique home page that makes it very easy to access the required application or zoom in to the keys of your keyboard to write your SMS easily - without glasses- A "super icon" concept that zooms out when a finger approaches it and makes it possible to see the applications information- Use the edges of your Smartphone to scroll text up and down, change the volume or switch icons without touching any keys- Have your icons place themselves automatically- Perform simple tasks: change page, activate the screen by putting your hand near it, rotate an image, zoom into the space- Activate your Smartphone without touching any keys (the phone detects your fingers)- Use your Smartphone as a simple notepad, even when wearing gloves- Automatically adapt the interface for the right or left hand- An intuitive and easy to use camera application
Being able to measure each fingertips position in relation to your mobile screen and case opens up a whole world of creative possibilities for developers, such as 3D.Initially aimed at the mobile market, there are many other applications for this technology: games consoles, TV remote controls, controls for automobiles, computers, the medical industry, etcIn performing functions with your finger hovering above the screen, the Sensation technology is reminiscent of a "floating touch" and an "air gesture", which have already been seen on some high-end Smartphones. Its huge advantage over these technologies is the much greater height of the detection range – 5cm above the screen, vs. 2 cm for competing technologies.FOGALE has therefore developed applications that rethink and reinvent your Smartphones interface. They are smooth, intuitive and amazingly easy to use.This is the only technology that can detect several fingers above the screen as well as at the sides of your Smartphone, opening up new horizons for todays Smartphones.FOGALE Sensation has recently grown its teams and recruited a new CEO, to structure the companys growth and create the Asian subsidiaries that will enable us to support our clients and develop our business.
About FOGALE NanotechAfter developing a "capacitive camera", which is now fitted to thousands of medical scanners, the FOGALE nanotech researchers set themselves a new challenge: to measure the coordinates of several fingers above a screen (up to 5 cm for fingers and 10 cm for hand gestures).Such control would enable the famous man/machine interaction to be smoother and more intuitive, more precise and complex movements. This is the beginning of a genuine technological disruption in the world of touchscreens for mobile consumer products. An "all-in-one" technology that extends todays touch-based interface beyond its physical limits, as even the sides become control surfaces - as well as all the unique possibilities from the simultaneously available multi-finger ‘3D hover’ contactless interface. This highly innovative technology is protected by some forty patents.FOGALE nanotech is a spin-off of the CEA (the French Atomic Energy Commission) and of the ONERA (the French National Aerospace Research Centre), founded in 1983. Over the years it has built up a unique experience in the field of high and very-high-accuracy dimensional measurement. Researchers and engineers constitute 80% of the FOGALE Groups 70-strong staff.

Viticell®, a new treatment for Vitiligo patients using cutaneous repigmentation through cell grafts
Viticell®, the new medical device on the market, offers an innovative treatment for patients with non-progressive vitiligo or post-traumatic hypochromic scars by using autologous grafts in cellular suspension, either in the doctor’s surgery or hospital. Having achieved excellent results in the domestic market of France, the UK Business Development Manager from Laboratoires Genévrier will be visiting the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition 2015 on 7-8th March 2015 in London, to develop partnerships in the UK with specialist dermatology clinics, KOLs, and practitioners treating patients with vitiligo. For meeting requests, contact Katie Docwra at BUSINESS FRANCE on 0207 024 3619, email@example.com
Vitiligo affects 0.5% to 2% of the population worldwide, and presents in two clinical forms: segmental and non-segmental. Due to its visible nature, this disease often triggers social withdrawal and can be very troubling for patients. Six in 10 patients fear the condition will worsen, and about one third of them report feelings of anger and shame, a tendency toward depression, as well as reporting an impact on their social life. Medical treatments for vitiligo include natural heliotherapy and, especially, high activity corticosteroids (class IV), immunomodulators, and associated phototherapy.
Surgical treatment is based on three autologous graft techniques. The oldest method is the full-thickness skin graft. The second, the split-thickness skin graft, consists in the direct application of a dermal-epidermal graft, harvested using a dermatome, on to the depigmented area which has previously undergone dermabrasion treatment. For the autologous epidermal graft in cellular suspension, the harvesting methods are the same as for the previous technique, but include an additional step: the use of an enzyme solution to dissociate the epidermis from the dermis so as to collect keratinocyte and melanocyte cells from the epidermal tissue. This step takes the solution from a solid to liquid phase, through the cellular suspension of the harvested epidermal cells. When applied to the area previously treated by dermabrasion, cellular suspension makes it possible to treat a surface area 5 to 10 times as large as the biopsy.
According to European recommendations, the autologous graft in cellular suspension is indicated in cases of segmental or localised vitiligo after failure of classic medical treatments, such as phototherapy, and in non-segmental vitiligo that has been stable for at least 6 months in patients with no previous history of Koebner phenomenon. In the case of segmental vitiligo, it is possible to obtain significant repigmentation (95%) that lasts for 5 years in 84% of patients . The cell graft may also be a therapeutic option for the treatment of hypochromic or achromic scars following burns or laser treatments, for example.
Viticell® obtained CE marking in October 2013 and is therefore authorised for sale within the UK. The benefit of using the melanocyte graft using Viticell® is the accelerated repigmentation process achieved by using the patient’s own cells to repigment his or her depigmented lesions. Thanks to a single-use, standardised procedure that is GMP compliant, it is now possible to treat a depigmented area of up to 100cm2 in 1 to 2 hours either in the doctor’s surgery or clinic, or at the hospital. One of the principal innovations of Viticell® lies in suspending isolated cells in hyaluronic acid (HA) during the dermal-epidermal separation. The addition of HA allows a more viscous cell suspension, giving better adhesion and diffusion when it is applied to the area ready for the skin graft.
Viticell® expands the therapeutic arsenal either at the hospital or the doctor’s surgery, making it possible to treat patients suffering from vitiligo where previous conventional treatments no longer allow for repigmentation.
Viticell in 5 steps:
1 - Harvest thin skin sample (4-20cm2)2 - Skin digestion and collection of epidermal cells with Viticell®3 - Resuspension in Hyaluronic Acid (HA)4 - Cell graft onto the area previously treated with dermabrasion (<100cm2)5 - Option to use post-graft phototherapy to augment repigmentation
