be delivered with its dime-sized patch.

Based on technology originally developed

at the University of Queensland, Vaxxas'

HD-MAP includes a 9-by-9 mm array

of thousands of very short projections

around 250 microns in length. Invisible to

the naked eye and coated with vaccine,

the projections can quickly deliver vaccine

to immune cells.

Vaxxas also claims that the patches

can deliver vaccine more efficiently - a

positive when people around the world are

clamouring for a vaccine against COVID19. The company points to a recent

clinical study in which their micropatch

delivering a sixth of an influenza vaccine

dose produced an immune response

comparable to a full dose by intramuscular

injection. A two-thirds dose by HD-MAP

generated significantly faster and higher

overall antibody responses.

Because a vaccine is dried onto the

patch, the vaccines are stable outside

of cold-chain (they do not have to be

refridgerated), a potential answer to the

question of how to keep a traditional

COVID-19 vaccine cold in developing

countries and even developed countries.

Vaccines delivered through HD-MAP in

the clinical study stayed stable at 40oC

(104o F) for 12 months.

EDIT COMMENT: It's a different use

for patch, in the diabetes sector at this

stage, sensors are used to sense glucose,

not deliver drugs, but it's not beyond the

realms of reason that a similar micropatch

could be used for such a purpose in the

future to deliver diabetes medications.

Mel Stephenson-Grey's home workout

circuit consists of six different exercises.

She explains, "With each exercise we'll

do consecutively for 30 seconds and then

rest for 30 seconds. If someone is new to

fitness or this type of activity, they might

choose to take a longer rest between

each exercise, for say a minute or two.

Once all of the exercises are completed,

we then take a six-minute rest (which

again is adaptable) and once recovered,

we repeat the circuit all over again."

Stephenson-Grey took part in the

London 2012 Olympics Games torch

relay and still trains (prior to lockdown) at

the track and in the gym. The exercises

she does include standing squats, pressups, the plank, lunges, the superman

pose (when the opposite arm and leg are

stretched out) and sit ups.

She says, "This type of fitness session

is inspired by the type of session I've often

done with my training group over the

years, particularly at the start of the winter

or summer training season, as it helps

build strength and fitness as a foundation

to move onto other things. It works the

arms, legs and core areas throughout

the session, which can be helpful when

training a lot, because no one area is

necessarily over-worked or strained."

The home workout videos have been

accepted by many in the community.

She adds, "I'm sharing what training

sessions work for me. Please remember

that you know your own fitness, health

and diabetes best. Seek medical advice

if you are concerned about undertaking

physical activity."
