A walking stick is something that we all might need to grapple with as we get older, for one simple reason: our balance and gait aren’t what they used to be, so it is useful to have a “third leg” to get up and around while minimizing the chances of falling down. So far, the basic premise is pretty much the same, although in the past there has been technologically-infused ideas of a walking stick such as the Tactile Wand Electronic Walking Stick. Being close to a decade old, how about getting something more updated and useful such as the iStand Walking Cane that will arrive in three flavors?

WhatBox, Inc. claims that this will be the last walking cane that you will ever need to buy, where regardless of the model that you purchase, it will be fashion forward. Of course, there is the staple version which will not carry any kind of technology at all, but we are more interested in the other two models that will sport integrated technology. For instance, there is the iStand with FindMyCane, being a trackable cane that has been infused with GPS technology so that it is a whole lot easier to find out where the cane was last left behind.

The other would be a smart cane with fall detection and Alzheimer’sAlerts capability, also know as iStand Cane with SmartWalk technology. It targets those who might simply wander around and are in need of memory care. Regardless of which model that is picked up, all of them features a flexible shaft for joint comfort, and a no-trip base that stands alone. All of iStand’s smart safety products will not have any burdensome subscription so that seniors and their families will be able to enjoy safety and comfort without having to break the bank.

Nuguna Neckband is an environmental awareness device Tue, 11 Jul 2017 12:00:59 +0000 nugunaNow here is a wearable device that will certainly change the way you view things — the Nuguna Neckband. This is no ordinary piece of neckband, but rather, it is an environmental awareness device that could very well be the first of its kind. The Nuguna Neckband has already surpassed its Kickstarter funding goal, and is more than ready to meet whatever orders that come its way. Specially designed for those who have hearing loss, the Nuguna Neckband is a device that is worn around the neck. Whenever there is a high-pitched sound that happens around the wearer, the device will alert them to the sound’s direction.

The whole idea of the Nuguna Neckband is to make the world a better place. Ergonomically designed and lightweight in nature, the Nuguna Neckband will sit comfortably around the neck even when worn for long periods of time. This is a far more attractive proposition to those who do not use a hearing aid, and yet want to continue to remain alert through the device’s sound detection and vibration signals.

There are two models of the Nuguna Neckband to choose from. The first is the Nuguna Neckband Off, or NNF-001, where it can detect high pitched sounds while alerting the wearer to their directions. The second is the Nuguna Neckband On, model number NNO-001, where it will work in tandem with a mobile application. This mobile app will allow the user to easily change it vibration configurations, receive alerts of phone calls, social media notifications, and even set an alarm clock using the device’s vibrations.

Apart from that, the Nuguna Neckband On can also be used on its own to independently detect sounds should the app be turned off, or when there is no available connection. Apart from that, the Nuguna Neckband On can even receive natural disaster alerts (earthquakes, tornadoes and others) depending on information provided by the USGS (United States Geological Survey). Pretty neat, right?

EmeTerm will help to prevent morning sickness Thu, 06 Jul 2017 19:00:42 +0000 emetermGetting pregnant is a joy for many couples, but with it comes another aspect of pregnancy that affects up to 80% of pregnant women — morning sickness. This would include experiencing both nausea and vomiting, and these are not nice experiences to have at all. With morning sickness being able to decrease a pregnant woman’s work efficiency, it will end up with additional healthcare expenses, all the while negatively impacting the quality of life of both the mother and the unborn child. Rather than use drugs that might affect the unborn child, how about taking the drug-free route with EmeTerm to alleviate morning sickness?

EmeTerm is a drug-free, non-invasive method that relies on precise neuronal electrical stimulation technology in order to prevent and provide relief for morning sickness. Through the release of a particular low-frequency electrical pulse from the user’s wrist, EmeTerm is able to adjust the vagus nerve signals that travels to and from the stomach. By doing so, it prevents or postpones the brain from transmitting nausea signals to the stomach. In other words, nausea-inducing irregular gastric contraction is slowed down, while lowering the nauseous sensation for users.

EmeTerm prides itself in having high safety standards as well, which is why all of the materials used for it meet medical standards. Relying on medical silicone rather than natural rubber, it would mean the EmeTerm is hypoallergenic. Inert metal is used in electrodes so that skin irritation is avoided, while the patented electrodes remain parallel with tendon that will enhance the electric conduction without having to make use of any kind of conduction gel that could potentially possess allergenic chemical compounds.

The EmeTerm is also useful to prevent those who tend to get dizzy when they sit in cars or vehicles that have to go through many winding roads, as it work using a similar principle. The $91 EmeTerm is definitely worth a shot if you have tried everything else and have not achieved any level of success in combating morning sickness.

The OxGord Stainless Steel Jar Opener helps weak wrists Thu, 11 May 2017 19:30:24 +0000 OxGord Jar opener

Despite your best efforts to take care of your body, age will eventually catch up with you. The better shape you keep yourself in will lessen the burden, but it is an inevitable reality we’ll all face, or are currently facing. Instead of grumping about it and saying there’s nothing to be done but suffer, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

While you can always do things on your own to improve your health such as diet and exercise, that’s not going to solve a problem like arthritis in your wrists. If you struggle with this and want to have a little more independence in the kitchen, the OxGord Stainless Steel Arthritis Jar Opener will help you with pickles, jams, honey, and any other items that come in a jar and need a little ‘oomph’ to be opened. Since it has a wide mouth that comes to a narrow point, it can also be used for anything with a twist top, meaning nail polish and bottles of juice or soda will be easier to handle.

For those who are suffering from arthritis, fibromyalgia, or joint pain, this will mean less frustration and spills from overexertion. Those with children could use this to let their kids tackle jobs that might otherwise be too difficult for them. This is only going to cost you around $10 for a 2-pack, and is easy to install with a peel and stick backing that should be put wherever is most to convenient to its user.

BetterBack forces you to keep better posture Tue, 02 May 2017 18:30:57 +0000 Better Back

Your parents can scream at you until they’re blue in the face, but it’s not going to make you have better posture. Unless you actively want to change something, you’re not going to, which is why we carry a lot of bad habits into adulthood. Eventually we realize that the things our parents told us to do were for our benefit, and have to begrudgingly change our ways after the fact.

If you still slump and slouch, especially when sitting at your desk, then the BetterBack will help you change your crooked ways (before it’s too late). For those that have terrible posture, this is the first step to not only sitting better, but correcting your posture indefinitely. This folds around your back and knees, essentially forcing you into decent posture, but in a comfortable, hammock-like way.

Only using this for 15 minutes a day can help your body’s muscle memory know what good posture is and keep it that way. This will work on any chair, meaning it’s perfect for the office, during the big game, on a plane, or just sitting in quiet meditation. When you’re not using it, this will fold down and zip up to a little package size so it can go in your bag when it’s not needed. This is a $59 purchase that could drastically alter your posture, if you remember to make yourself use it.

The AliveCor Kardia Mobile ECG – stay healthy and stress-free Mon, 17 Apr 2017 18:30:15 +0000 Kardia EKG

We don’t like going to see our doctor. Not only is the hospital teeming with germs, viruses, and needles, but scheduling an appointment and making the time to get to it are a pain. When you have an active health issue, then it becomes even more of a nuisance as you don’t want to neglect your health, but also don’t want to go to the ER every time something flares up.

If you have a heart problem, especially with some form of acid reflux sprinkled on top, then every instance of feeling a little off seems like a cause for alarm. Rather than going in for every irregularity, you can get the AliveCor Kardia Mobile ECG to check in. This is an FDA-cleared, clinical-grade mobile EKG monitor that will let you do an EKG in about 30 seconds so you can know whether or not your heart is doing something it shouldn’t be.

This device is smaller than a credit card, and will play nicely with most smartphones and tablets. While your fingers are on the sensors for 30 seconds, you have the option to record a voice memo about how you’re feeling so you can keep track of specifics surrounding that reading. It uses easy-to-find batteries, and will only cost you $99. This is cheaper than a hospital visit in both time and money, and gives you peace of mind for being proactive about your health.

This FIR Amethyst Belt will help with your circulation Wed, 05 Apr 2017 18:30:54 +0000 FIR Amethyst Belt

When you deal with aches and pains, it’s hard to live out your days as a normal person. Not moving seems just as painful as moving, and it’s hard to enjoy anything that’s happening around you when you’re constantly hurting. Seeing people walking around with a smile on their face is almost jarring, because you can’t imagine what it’s like to not suffer all the time. If this scenario applies to you, then it’s about time to start taking matters into your own hands about improving the quality of your life.

While changing up your diet, starting to stretch and work out more will do wonders for your body and mind alike, sometimes a little heat therapy can go a long way too. This FIR Amethyst Belt emits Negative ions and Far-infrared waves to provide a penetrating heat, making it great for strains or muscle pain. It has settings for 1-9 hours, though you can preheat the belt to the max, unplug and use it for as long as the stones hold heat.

This does have untreated amethyst stones in it, which might mean something to those of you who study gemstones. The heating area is 18 x 8”, though the strap itself measure 55″ or 63” depending on how long you need it to be. Regardless of which option you choose, this will cost you $225, and at that price point it had better provide you with some form of relief.

The MediCline Advanced Positioning Pillow is for side sleepers Fri, 03 Mar 2017 18:30:38 +0000 MediCline

Sleep is something almost everyone will struggle with at one time or another in their lives. Whether you deal with it for a short period due of time to stress or have constant issues either from restlessness or medical issues, it’s something you want to find relief for immediately. Lack of sleep means a terrible immune system and no focus during the day.

If you can’t sleep in any position but on your side, or deal with gerd/acid reflux, then sleeping horizontally isn’t going to work. To have an inclined position, you’ll want the MediCline Advanced Positioning Pillow. This has gone through 5 clinical trials, and is said to provide the most relief for heartburn, regurgitation, coughing, choking, nausea, and other symptoms of acid reflux/gerd.

This can be used for the right or left side depending on where you put the interior pillow, and you will need a top pillow of your choice for your neck. The one thing to make sure you get right from the get-go is the size. These come in small, medium, and large, and correlate with your height to make sure you’re at the proper angle. Any you choose will cost you $219, and worry not, the plush cover is removable and can be tossed in the wash so you don’t feel the need to buy a new one every few months.
