Therapeutic Items
  • The Neck and Shoulder Heat Wrap.

    This is the heated wrap designed to simultaneously soothe sore muscles in the neck and shoulders. Unlike typical rectangular heating pads that do not provide ideal coverage or contact, this model's slightly weighted edges provide a custom fit around the neck, shoulders, and upper back to deliver consistent, therapeutic heat in areas that are prone to tightness. The integrated heating element delivers even, deep-penetrating heat that stimulates blood circulation to loosen muscles, helps relieve swelling, and soothes joints. The tethered controller adjusts the temperature to four different levels and the plush, 100% polyester microplush wrap is soft against skin.

    With two-hour auto-off setting.

    Plugs into AC with a 9' cord that provides ample freedom of movement.

    Fully machine-washable pad.

    Lakeshore Blue.

  • The Physical Therapist's Hot/Cold Wraps.

    Recommended by physical therapists, these wraps are made of a tough, flexible high-glycerine gel that retains both heat and cold, transferring it directly to joints or muscles to provide superior therapeutic treatment.

  • Best Fingertip Heart Rate Monitor.

    This is the highly accurate heart rate monitor pulse oximeter that was also the easiest to use and the most comfortable in tests conducted by The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute.

    While all units took pulse readings that were comparable to those taken by a registered nurse, panelists found that The Best model's gently flexing hinges provided optimal comfort on large or small fingers, unlike lesser units that pinched. It displayed readings on its high-definition color OLED display in an average of 7 seconds, 2X faster than lesser models that required 14 seconds. The display changes to your preferred viewing orientation at the touch of a button, and it can also announce readings in a clear female voice--the only model to offer this convenience. Also an oximeter, The Best model averaged only a 0.84% variance from readings taken with a clinical oximeter--far superior to lesser models that were off by 4%.

  • Personal mobility made simple with the Grip-n-Assist Lift Belt!

    A brilliant idea - a mobility/transfer belt that's designed to aid caregivers in getting post-surgery patients and seniors to their feet, or helping during physical therapy or injury recovery. It can be worn either by the person who needs help or by the caregiver.

    Four well-positioned foam grips are built in, so all support is focused at the waistline, the center of gravity. There's no more need to grasp and pull on hands and arms, to get behind and try to lift, or to involve more than one person in the lifting effort. The belt is secure and comfortable, made of highly durable, waterproof, and washable materials.

    It's invaluable in helping individuals in and out of beds, chairs, vehicles, bathtubs, and up and down stairs. The belt fits securely with a buckle strap and hook-and-loop fasteners. It not only makes the process of moving more comfortable, it also encourages safety and security for all involved. It brings comfort and ease to those who need it and helps to restore a good quality of life for the elderly, the injured, or anyone with restricted mobility.

  • Best Cuff Blood Pressure Monitor.

    This cuff blood pressure monitor earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it was the most accurate and had the most comfortable cuff.

    Each monitor's systolic and diastolic measurements were compared to readings taken by a registered nurse. The Best model deviated from the nurse's readings by only 4.13%--nearly 2X more accurate than lesser models. Panelists preferred The Best model's cuff because it did not over tighten like other monitors and was smooth against the skin.

    The LCD panel shows diastolic and systolic blood pressure in 7/8"-high numerals, as well as pulse, date, and time; LEDs alert you if blood pressure readings fall outside recommended levels. The display stores up to 90 readings for two people. Six AA batteries (included) provide cordless operation for about 150 readings, or the unit plugs into AC with an included adapter.

A second setting disables the filter, ideal for amplification when in nature or in an otherwise quiet environment. With a microphone that picks up sounds within a frequency range from 1,200"1,600Hz, the amplifier provides optimal sound levels to a maximum 25dB gain, ideal for meetings, television, or auditoriums.
