Kriel Technology Group (Pty) Ltd brings VAULTCARD to Southern Africa - Most advanced and effective RFID protection solution available Bloemfontein, South Africa – 05 June 2017 – The VAULTCARD be available from Kriel Technology Group (Pty)Ltd – (www.ktgroup.co.za). Kriel Technology Group (Pty) Ltd today announced the availability of VAULTCARD™ – a new pocket-sized protector in the fight against contactless credit card fraud. The product offers a solution to growing consumer concerns over the safety of personal banking data, which can be accessed via widely available Radio-Frequency Identification Technology (RFID) skimming devices. Use of contactless technology cards are rising at a massive rate in South Africa. U.S. credit card fraud is on the rise. A study by NASDAQ showed that credit card fraud tripled from 2013 to 2014, affecting over 30 million U.S. consumers. Fraudsters can use the devices to clone cards and aid identity theft, with shoppers and commuters at most risk. VAULTCARD™ was created to solve this security issue. Priced at R 599.95, VAULTCARD™ is a credit-card sized device that uses revolutionary patent pending technology, based on highly sophisticated military jamming signals, to shield contactless payment cards from RFID fraud. VAULTCARD™ protects multiple cards stored inside wallets up to 8cm thick and can also be placed inside electronic passport holders to keep personal data safe from fraudsters. The card offers the most superior and effective RFID protection solution available, and was created by VAULTCARD’s parent company – Vaultskin – which specialises in the development of innovative accessories for mobile and data protection devices. What makes VAULTCARD superior to other solutions? Several products offer shielding using metal foil or white noise based jamming technologies, but these are susceptible to security ‘blind spots’, making them an unreliable solution. VAULTCARD™ provides superior protection that: . . .
Kriel Technology Group (Pty) Ltd brings YO to Southern Africa - Challenges outdated home fertility testing with smartphone video technology to accurately determine moving sperm (“motile sperm concentration” a key to male fertility) from the comfort of your phone. Bloemfontein, South Africa – 05 June 2017 – The YO™ Home Sperm Test will be available from Kriel Technology Group (Pty)Ltd – (www.ktgroup.co.za). Medical Electronic Systems (MES), the gold standard in automated semen analysis and an established manufacturer of commercial-grade automated semen analyzers for the past 20 years, today announced the launch of YO™, the first home male fertility test kit powered by a smartphone platform and supported by an interactive app experience complete with sperm education, animations and sperm trivia. YO provides consumers with the ability to both view and measure the number of motile (moving) sperm in their sample – a key to male fertility - in the comfort of their phone. Unlike other home fertility tests that are limited to measuring total sperm concentration, YO is the first and only video-based smartphone platform that is FDA-cleared to measure Motile Sperm Concentration (the number of moving sperm) - a critical factor in determining male fertility. At a consumer-accessible price point of just R 929.95, two YO fertility tests are supplied with each kit, saving the consumer time and money by offering an affordable, reliable and accurate home test. YO was created by the same team of scientists and engineers who developed MES’s “gold standard” laboratory sperm quality analyzers that are used in hospitals and labs around the world. See a video of how YO works at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddYpR2swBtY&t=5s Traditionally, concerns about fertility have focused primarily on women’s fertility issues. But in recent years, there has been a growing awareness of how men’s reproductive health issues can contribute to infertility. Approximately 40 – 50% of . . .
Bloemfontein, South Africa – Feb 09, 2017: Kriel Technology Group (Pty) Ltd (www.ktgroup.co.za) introduces Eyejusters, the First Instantly Adjustable Glasses - which look like normal glasses, to Southern Africa and other SADC countries. The world’s first ever smart glasses with adjustable vision correction that use regular frames will be available from Kriel Technology Group (Pty)Ltd – (www.ktgroup.co.za). British based Eyejusters have created a discreet adjustable eyeDial to allow users to change the lens strength in the same way as binoculars or a microscope, giving wearers near perfect vision, whatever their needs - computer, reading or detailed close-up work. Their classic styles are all crafted using quality materials, in Acetate and Stainless Steel. The glasses are available in various different colours and retail at R1,439.00. All Eyejusters come with a 1 year warranty. Most people need help with close up vision at some point in their lives hence the popularity of ‘ready readers’ (over-the- counter reading glasses). By our mid-forties, we start struggling to see close-up objects such as books, computers and phones. This is caused by an age-related condition called presbyopia, which is part of the natural ageing process of the eye . Our eyes begin to lose elasticity making it harder to switch focus between short and long-distance objects. Reading glasses are not a complete solution for presbyopia as they have a fixed lens, this means that only a small zone is in focus, at a constant distance from the eye. To change this distance, you need a different pair of glasses. Additionally, 'ready readers' have the same strength lens for each eye - many people, however, require different strengths for each eye. With this problem in mind, the creators of Eyejusters invented SlideLensTM, the result of five years of intensive research which means that each lens can be individually focused by the wearer through a small adjustable dial in each side of the . . .
Kriel Technology Group (Pty) Ltd introduces the Drivebot to Southern Africa and other SADC countries. "Drivebot will monitor your car's health and alert whenever there's a problem with your car. With just a flick of your thumb on your phone, Drivebot will diagnose your car to see if there's any sign of hidden problems on your car, as well as a simple instruction to cope with those problems. It’s like a *Fitbit for your car. As a result, you can save the repair cost more than ten times before the problem becomes more severe," the creators said. You plug in the device to the OBD-II port, pair it with your smartphone via Bluetooth, and you're driving with Drivebot as a supportive information partner. The port is usually under the steering wheel, from where the Drivebot can access the same diagnostics info that mechanics use to check on your car’s health. The Drivebot pairs with a companion smartphone app (available for iOS7 or later, or Android 4.0 or later). The device shuts itself off when you are not driving with no associated risks. The team noted that "Drivebot works with OBD-II compatible cars which are most cars sold in South Africa since 1996. However, some car models might not support some of our features e.g. fuel consumption." The Drivebot team also provides simple steps on "How to know whether your car is compatible with Drivebot or not." Drivebot's range of information involves mechanical trouble alerts, trip logs, route advice, and business-expense tracking. Drivebot sends off alerts, such as "your engine seems wrong—engine oil cap is getting loose" and the app relays instructions on what the user can do. The driver gets maintenance reminders too, including tune-ups when the car reaches a certain mileage, for tire changing and for checking brakes. The trip log feature was designed to help support drivers who not only need the data to track expenses but want to make future decisions that will save on fuel. Route advice goes . . .
Kriel Technology Group (Pty) Ltd introduces the Checkme Pro Health Monitor to Southern Africa. An ECG machine the size of a business card? Crazy! Nope, innovation is here to amaze all of us. Innovative, advanced and versatile electronic monitoring device, the Checkme Pro is a ‘must have’ for today’s health conscious people aiming to live healthy lifestyles. On the classic Star Trek TV series, the Enterprise crew carried “tricorders” that were multipurpose scanner and analysis devices. Dr. McCoy had a special version that could diagnose injuries and disease. Now a Chinese company has released a multi-function health monitor that comes close to rivaling the Star Trek’s gear. The Checkme from Kriel Technology Group is a Swiss Army knife of home diagnostic tools; it may not be a wearable device but it is small enough to carry in a pocket. The Checkme Pro fuses functionalities of several monitoring devices into one compact hand held monitor, representing an ‘all in one’ revolutionary approach to health awareness. Call it the “Pocket Doctor” if you wish. A daily check of the measurements below takes approximately 20 seconds. The device is controlled via its touchscreen that displays all the charts and numbers. The user can record a voice memo to save along with the readings as a reminder of what was happening around the time of the test. The device has Bluetooth connectivity and comes with an iOS and Android app that can be used to pass on the readings to one’s doctor or family members. Checkme Pro performs several monitoring functions: ECG monitor – with or without leads Pulse oximeter Thermometer Systolic Blood Pressure Monitor Daily check – all measurements done at once Sleep monitor Pedometer (step counter) Calendar and clock Reminder The Checkme Pro Health Monitor is perfect for use by families at home.
