UMI Medical Waste Management Capabilities Animated with Flash-Free iPad 2 Accessible Web 3.0 Design by Miami Web Design Firm

A family-owned Florida biomedical waste disposal and treatment company leverages W3C Compliant HTML5/CSS3 Semantic Web design to challenge industry giants.

Miami, FL, April 05, 2011 --( According to Cambridge Consultants, every day America's hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, laboratories, funeral homes, physicians, dentists, veterinarians, tattoo parlors and other sources of infectious biomedical materials and "sharps" (i.e. used needles, lancets and other devices capable of penetrating skin) produce at least 66,000 tons of medical waste. In Florida alone, United Medical Industries ("UMI") Vice President Marlene Yero estimates there are more than 40,000 such medical waste generators, all of whom are required by law to adhere to stringent biomedical waste management and disposal practices designed to protect their employees and the public from serious infection and harm. And providing that growing market with comprehensive medical waste management solutions is the focus of, UMI's recently launched Web 3.0 ready and iPad 2 accessible website.

Founded in 2002 by medical waste management industry pioneer Carlos Campos, United Medical Industries is a full service biomedical waste disposal enterprise headquartered in Miami, Florida. His sister Marlene Campos Yero is actively involved in the operations of the company, as is brother-in-law Jose Yero who serves as UMI's hands-on President. With the standards-based and high-visibility Semantic Web design of, the family-owned enterprise looks to leverage increased online exposure to expand their share of the Florida medical waste transport and disposal market by providing competitively affordable reliability in an industry where, according to Ms. Yero, "...regional acquisitions by corporate giants threaten monopoly." "Through our expanding web, search and social media presence," she continued, "we will not only educate our customers about the dangers of improperly handling medical waste, but also keep them informed about the realities of the medical waste solutions marketplace."

Styled by Miami web designer with front-end development by using dynamic PHP scripting and consisting entirely of Flash-free tableless HTML5/CSS3 source, every web page at passes all seven tests of "Web 3.0 Readiness." These include not only basic tests of W3C compliance as to content and format but also behavior, accessibility, semantics, syndication and links. The hand-coded custom template features a Javascript-free, CSS-only vertical navigation panel with animated teasers, a jQuery-driven expandable footer, selectable PHP random relevant image displays, and PNG gradients for backgrounds and overlays. Custom jQuery/Javascript programming also drives page load/unload and image hover animations. User experience is enhanced by providing all forms with auto-focus and auto-scroll functionality, and all pages offer medical waste twitter, an RSS newsfeed and social media integration. Also, every web page has been verified accessible using not only the latest versions of all five major web browsers (Firefox, Explorer, Chrome, Opera and Safari) but also by Flash-free user agents like the new Apple iPad 2 tablet computer, of which says almost 1 million units were sold in the first 2 days of its introduction.

Like the iPad 2, was designed with utility in mind. And so far, UMI President Jose Yero seems happy with the delivery: "From the outset Bruce Arnold was instrumental in helping us redesign our drab, outdated and unproductive website. He provided us with guidelines to simplify the web development process, and led us through it all step by step. He was professional in conduct and stayed on top of the project to assure that it was completed on schedule. We appreciate his high level of web marketing expertise, and we're very pleased with the results!"
