How do you BOSU?

April 9, 2008

The best thing about the BOSU Balance Trainer, besides its versatility, is that it adds fun to your usual workouts. Use it in place of your step for aerobic workouts (very tough) and while doing some traditional yoga poses, like warrior and triangle. It makes the workouts challenging and interesting.

Using the Bosu Balance Trainer can help improve:

Balance Because the BOSU Balance Trainer is never stable, you’re constantly engaging the small stabilizer muscles in the upper and lower body to keep you in place.

Kinesthetic awareness This is just a fancy word for your awareness of how the body is positioned at any given moment. This awareness is something that often declines as we age, so the Balance Trainer can help you stay connected with how your body moves.

Proprioception This is another fancy word describing how your body responds to external forces to keep your joints in the right position. When you stand on a Balance Trainer, all of your muscles are forced to contract to keep your joints in proper position. This helps make normal activities easier.

Reclined Hamstring Stretch

January 13, 2008

The hamstring stretches done while lying on the back are gentler and place less stress on the back than those done while sitting. Depending on a person’s specific medical condition and level of pain, the lying down position may be preferable and comfortable. In particular, a person with low back pain should choose whichever position is most tolerable for their back while still giving a gentle stretch.

Prescription for Tight Hamstrings

January 13, 2008

Working like a personal trainer, the patented Hamstring Stretch-Rx puts the athlete or patient in complete control of their hamstring stretch.

The superior supine (back lying) positioning isolates hamstring muscles for optimal stretching while preventing injury by protecting the low back.

Hamstring Stretch-Rx  is light, portable and convenient for use at home as well as travel yet durable enough to be used in the clinic or training room.
 

The unique handle with its rapid line-length adjustment and release lever allows for dramatically increased flexibility (range of motion) improvement. In addition, contract-relax and hold-relax routines formerly requiring assistance of a therapist or trainer can now be done independently to further enhance flexibility.

Includes exercise guide designed by a physical therapist and comes with a drawstring bag for easy transport.

Therma Moist Heating Pad by Drive

October 10, 2007

 

The Therma Moist Heating Pad requires no water to be added, as an outer flannel cover draws and retains humidity from the air. As the heating pad warms, the moisture is released from the flannel cover and onto the treated area. The heating pad is ideal for the treatment of arthritis, back pain, sprains and strains, muscle soreness, neck pain, headaches and sports injuries.

To clean, remove cover from heating pad. Machine or hand wash. Use mild detergent in cool water. Hang to dry or use set on cool gentle cycle in dryer.

Features:

* The positioning strap with Velcro-type closure ensures a secure, proper fit for maximum treatment

* The easy to use hand control features four heat settings and four time settings (Heat settings: 115/130/150/165 degrees Fahrenheit, 45/55/65/75 Celsius – Time settings: 15/30/45/60 minutes)

* Moist heat therapy is more effective than dry heat because moisture transmits heat more efficiently than air

* The heating pad will automatically shut off after treatment

* Three sizes are available to provide added convenience

SPO Medical Check Mate Sports and Aviation Pulse Oximeter

March 22, 2007

 SPO Medical Check Mate Pulse Oximeter

 Check Mate answers the sports and aviation markets’ demand for a lightweight, inexpensive monitor for measuring SPO2 oxygen saturation and heart rate during physically active and high-altitude activities. It offers the user a greater ability to monitor these vital signs under motion and is less expensive than most available devices.

SPORTS:

SPO Medical’s patented reflectance pulse oximetry (RPO) technology is what allows Check Mate to effectively monitor an athlete’s SPO2 during such activities as: * Mountain Climbing
* High-Altitude Street Cycling
* Light Jogging, Speed Walking and Running

Check Mate will monitor SPO2 in almost any physical activity that does not include significant arm swinging (e.g., jumping jacks). For most athletes, a little learning goes a long way: after a few hours of experimenting with various movements, athletes quickly learn how to use Check Mate in almost any activity.

AVIATION

Pilots love Check Mate because it allows them to quickly assess their SPO2 while flying at high altitudes. Hypoxia can be a pilot’s worst enemy, and Check Mate is a low-cost product which gives pilots peace of mind.

Check Mate also has an optional pouch that is rugged, zippered shut to prevent loss under extreme physical activities. Its semi-rigid, soft shell construction allows for safe storage as well as comfort to the wearer.
