Caregivers Could Have Used Active Halo GPS

ActiveForever-logoIf the caregivers of a wandering 82-year-old Ohio woman had the Active Halo GPS monitoring system, they never would have lost her in the first place!

The elderly woman’s caregivers both had to work that day, so no one was able to stay home and look after her. They noticed she was missing when they returned home from work. With the help of the local media, the woman was found and reunited with her caregivers at around 10 p.m. Saturday night.

Similarly, Glen Edward Martin, a 78-year-old Phoenix man who went missing Thursday was found Saturday when he knocked on a door asking for help.

His adult children said Martin suffers from a cognitive impairment similar to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

ActiveForever and Laser Gym Present Core Laser Pro for Physical Therapy

ActiveForever-logo

The Core Laser Pro Exercise System Offers a Solution for Lower Back Pain, Balance Training and Athletic Performance.

By Nicole Girard

Scottsdale, AZ, May 21, 2013– Responding to demand from physical therapists and chiropractors, Laser Gym has introduced a professional version of its Core Laser Exercise System. This is a revolutionary laser therapy device that relieves back pain, improves balance, flexibility and core strength by encouraging targeted hip gyrations.

“This institutional Core Laser design was motivated due to many requests from health care professionals for an adjustable unit to accommodate the various heights and body types of different patients,” says Laser Gym Executive Vice President Ryan Jeffrey. “Core Laser Pro requires minimal space and takes less than a minute to assemble.”

As with the original Core Laser Home, the professional version works through what Jeffrey calls “direct visual feedback” training. Using a laser attached to an adjustable belt, a user stands in front of a target and traces lines and patterns via dynamic pelvic tilts and twists. Patients see and feel improvement in their flexibility and strength with just eight minutes of practice. The system is available at ActiveForever for $199.00

The Core Laser Pro differs in that it allows health care professionals to quickly and easily adjust the target, providing greater efficiency while requiring less space in a clinical setting. The Core Laser Pro, which includes an adjustable, free-standing Pro Target and professional carrying case, is available at ActiveForever for $599.99.

“We’ve already received very positive responses from our individual users, and from the major rehabilitation specialists and athletic trainers who rely on us to bring them the most effective and credible treatment and conditioning ideas,” says ActiveForever CEO, Erika Feinberg. “The Laser Core line is a perfect fit for our offering and audience. The demonstration videos on our website sum it up nicely, and specialists ‘get it’ just by seeing it in action.”

ActiveForever will accommodate any health care provider organizations with a Core Laser Pro educational demonstration.

How Active Halo GPS Can Benefit Your Business

ActiveForever-logoActiveHalo GPS is the world’s smallest GPS tracking device used for real time location reporting and is ideal for business uses. Our hi-tech GPS device has several practical business applications.

The ActiveHalo GPS tracking system combines the worldwide reach of GPS with our easy to use web-based portal.

The ActiveHalo GPS system has a wide range of features to track and monitor your employees and fleet equipment.

The benefits of using ActiveHalo GPS as a profitable business tool are only limited by your imagination.

Employee Safety

Every business owner knows that their employees are their most valuable asset. Our ActiveHalo GPS services can be used by any company who needs to keep an accurate record of where his or her employees are located.

 The ActiveHalo GPS will give your company’s employees an extra layer of security.

When employees travel to remote areas as a part of their job, i.e.; fleet managers, delivery drivers, construction workers, and sales people you can easily find their last location.

When traveling in rural areas the smallest accident can quickly turn into a life-threatening situation especially when weather conditions are less than ideal. In this situation the nearest emergency assistance is usually miles away.

Employees appreciate the peace of mind the ActiveHalo GPS offers. They know if they ever find themselves in an emergency situation, company personnel can help them immediately by broadcasting direction, speed and position to emergency responders.

The ActiveHalo GPS SOS feature activates with the  press of the “SOS” button, located on the front of the ActiveHalo GPS unit. The SOS feature allows responders to find you with pinpoint accuracy.

Alzheimer’s Caregiving and Active Halo GPS

ActiveForever-logo

Currently, about 4 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, and about 22,000 people die from Alzheimer’s disease every year. The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that 1 in 10 people over age 65 and nearly half of people over 85 have Alzheimer’s disease. The number of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease is expected to increase to 14 million by 2050.

Experts claim that six in ten people with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease will become disoriented and “wander,” ending up in unfamiliar surroundings, lost, frightened and defenseless.

Wandering is a life-threatening emergency prevalent in all stages of Alzheimer’s. No caregiver, no matter how careful or tireless they may be, can ever be in all places at once.

ActiveForever had this in mind when they teamed up with the folks who developed AMBER Alert GPS. The goal was to create a product aimed specifically at providing Alzheimer’s, dementia and senior caregivers with some well-deserved peace of mind.
activehalo

ActiveForever adapted the enormously successful AMBER Alert GPS tracking system to the adult segment and created Active Halo GPS. This is a uniquely reliable, feature-rich, yet very cost-effective, customizable GPS tracking and reporting system designed specifically for medical and senior care facilities.

Uniband Resistance Bands for Enhanced Weight Lifting

ActiveForever-logo

The Uniband Latex Free Resistance Bands from ActiveForever are excellent mobility/rehabilitation tools which can be used to enhance weight lifting and training exercises as well. Unibands are the only resistance bands made to withstand pool chemicals. They make a great and fun addition to any water aerobics session!

Unlike traditional weight training, in which the rate of exertion is lighter with the finishing motion, with Unibands, the resistance of the bands increases as they are stretched. Color-coded Unibands offer five different levels of resistance, from very light to very heavy.

Uniband Latex Free Resistance Bands

Uniband Latex Free Resistance Bands come with accessories to improve and enhance your strength training regimen! $75.99

The Uniband forces your muscles to speed up at the end of an exertion in order to overcome the resistance of the bands at the top of the movement. In this way muscles are really pushed to their capacity at a much greater rate than with regular weights. At the moment when traditional weights are lightening their load, the Unibands are really making those muscles work.This allows you to develop strength, tone and agility in all major muscle groups, as well as the minor groups that are normally neglected. When working out with resistance bands, the entire dynamic of the exercise is changed and enhanced.

The following is a *rave* review for TranquilEyes from an actual customer named Elaine. She gave TranquilEyes FIVE STARS:

Dear Brad, use of Tranquilizeyes  goggles has kept me from having the RED red eyes, lids and eyes, that I’ve had for 12 years. 12 years ago I had a sever attack of Shingles in my eye, and I’ve had pain ever since. So I thought that my red eyes were just one more thing that I had to live with. Terrible pain in the morning with those red eyes, because my eyelashes grow inward and scratch my cornea. I have to sleep with a contact in my eye because of the scratches – but the contact would dry out because I also sleep with my eye opened. Now, in the morning, I am pain free. You can see how I went round and round with my symptoms.   Now with moist eye protection all night, my eyes are still moist in the morning. The redness is starting to go away also.
My Doctor suggested Tranquilize goggles for me.
I can’t wait to thank him.
Thanks to you VERY helpful people at activeforever also, because after I had placed my order, a lovely girl called and said that if I had sensitive skin, I should order the goggle that is not covered with fabric. She handled the exchange for me, and she was right…I would not have been able to stand the fabric.
I have just ordered a pair (sensitive eyes and skin) for one of my daughters who will be visiting next week. She will love them. Especially since she lives in California and I am in Florida and the sun comes in the windows of my guest room too too early for her … and she also has sensitive eyes.
Thank you for writing, Brad.
Have a good life, Elaine.

Lady Gaga Could Benefit from some Far Infrared

Lady Gaga has cancelled her entire U.S. tour due to pains from Synovitis.

Medical tests revealed Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip. A hip labral tear involves the ring of soft elastic tissue, called the labrum, that follows the outside rim of the socket of the hip joint.

Often compared to lupus, Synovitis, also known as “Toxic Synovitis” is an inflammation within the hip joint. A diagnosis is obtained following an ultrasound or joint x-rays of the hip or blood tests.

What is going on in the body?


Synovitis is a non-traumatic hip pain, which means that it is not caused by an injury. Instead, pain is caused by swelling and inflammation in the hip. Synovitis often follows an upper respiratory infection such as a cold or flu.

What are the signs and symptoms of the disease?


  • pain in one hip
  • a limp or inability to bear weight because of the hip pain
  • low grade fever at the beginning of the illness
  • knee and thigh pain on the affected side
  • often the infected person does not appear to be ill

What are the causes and risks of the disease?


While Synovitis often follows an upper respiratory infection, the exact cause is not clear, so there is no known prevention.

According to The Detroit News (and others) Lady Gaga released the following statement when announcing the initial cancellations: “I am completely devastated and heartsick. I’ve been hiding this injury and pain from my staff for a month, praying it would heal, but after last night’s performance I could not walk.”

Far Infrared therapy has been known to be especially effective in relieving pain from inflammation or irritation such as that caused by conditions like Synovitis or lupus.

What is Far Infrared Heat?


Far Infrared is a band of light that we perceive as heat. While we cannot see infrared heat, we can feel its effects. Infrared radiation, or radiant heat, represents over half of the energy emitted by the Sun and is divided into three segments: near, middle, and far.

Infrared rays heat our body by a process called conversion. Through conversion, far infrared heat can penetrate organic substances such as the human body without heating the air in between. By using far infrared heat as opposed to traditional heating methods, you enable the heat to penetrate deeper into your body without the skin discomfort of heating pads, hot towels, and some pain relief gels/creams.

Congenital Heart Defect survivors and their stories

February 7-14th is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. Congenital Heart Defect, also known as Congenital Heart Disease, (CHD) is any birth defect which affects the heart or the large blood vessels. Congenital means that the defect is present at birth.

Congenital Heart Defect is considered to be the most common birth defect, and is a leading cause of birth-defect related deaths worldwide. Congenital Heart Disease affects approximately 1.8 millions families in the United States according to the Congenital Heart Information Network (C.H.I.N.)

The inspirational and heart-warming Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week Pinterest page is something you don’t want to miss. Here are some of the CHD survivors on that page and their stories:

Kaden (above) was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries the day he was born. He had open heart surgery at 12 days old. Complications during and after the 11-hour surgery led the surgeon to believe his heart wouldn’t sustain life. He went home two weeks later. He has pulmonary stenosis and a small VSD but is doing amazingly well.

 

Olivia (left) was born with half a heart as a result of a severe and complicated congenital heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). During the past four years she has endured three open-heart surgeries, five heart catheters and a stroke.

 

 

 

 

Norah (right) was born with Heterodoxy, an ASD, VSD, interrupted IVC w/ Azygos continuation, an Intestinal Malrotation, minor Hydronephrosis, Pulmonary Stenosis and Polysplenia (she has 2 functional spleens). She had Ladd’s Procedure when she was 5 weeks old and open heart surgery at 9 months.

Mother says:
“We were fortunate enough to know she’d have a CHD before birth. It was tough to go through the pregnancy not knowing what would be wrong with her (bad news started when I was about 12 weeks along), but always loving her. She was, and IS, perfect. It took a long time to remember that she was perfect (at least to me) before I knew about her conditions and that they didn’t change anything. She was still the baby I loved, she’d just have a more colorful story than some.”

Putting “wellness” through the wringer

“Life is not merely to be alive, but to be well.”

According to those who keep track of such things, this idea–which is true even today–was expressed long ago by a Latin poet named Marcus Valerius Martial. He was born March 1, 40 and died between 102 and 104 AD.

What do you think Martial was referring to exactly? What does it mean to be “well” or to have “wellness” in your life? It’s a bit of a nebulous idea, is it not? It’s one of those situations where it’s not so easy to describe, but very easy to know when you’ve got it… and when you don’t.

We believe Martial’s use of the all-encompassing “well” runs parallel with our belief in the importance of holistic, comprehensive methods of health care.

We prefer it when a physician takes a complete snapshot of their patient. He/she should ask a broad spectrum of questions and take at least the larger aspects of their patients’ lives into consideration before making a diagnosis.

At ActiveForever we apply this philosophy to our own everyday operations; from our relationships with our loyal customers to the range of different products we carry.

After all, people are puzzles. If just a single piece is missing or out of place, the whole picture is askew.

People are also unique. What makes one person tick can absolutely sink another, and so on. We can’t help but believe it’s wise to view the art of healing through a wide lens.

Do you agree?
