Understanding Obesity - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Understanding obesity. The words overweight and obesity mean a person's body weight is higher than what is considered healthy for their height. In general, people can become overweight or obese due to an imbalance of energy. Energy in comes from calories in the food you eat. Energy out is the amount of calories your body burns during physical activity. Over time, if your energy in is less than your energy out you will lose weight. If your energy in is about the same as your energy out, your weight will stay the same. If your energy in is greater than your energy out, you will gain weight. Risks for becoming obese include: an inactive lifestyle, lack of access to places to exercise, lack of access to healthy food, a diet rich in high-calorie, fatty, and sugary foods. Meals with oversized food portions, having a family history of being overweight, or obese, diseases such as hypothyroidism, and polycystic ovary syndrome, side effects from some medications, lack of sleep, emotions that can make you want to eat more and advertisements for high-calorie unhealthy food and drinks. Obesity raises your risk of developing health problems such as type two diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers. If you have questions about obesity, talk to your healthcare provider.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"You and your company are wonderful. Your service, turnaround time, quality and price were better than I could have asked for. Please add me to your long list of satisfied customers."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."
