Are You Prepared for the Next Doce?

ActiveForever-logoIt’s an ancient old adage but it’s true. It’s much better to be safe than sorry. As evidenced by the ongoing, 7,000 acre plus ‘Doce’ wildfire in Northern Arizona, it’s impossible to predict when, where and how, disaster will strike. How will you respond?

Add the unpredictability of an aging national infrastructure and it becomes clear that it’s perfectly reasonable to want to take extra precautions to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Here at ActiveForever we recognize this so we carry the very affordable and very well equipped, 25 Person Bulk Sturdy Metal First Aid Cabinet.

Verdict’s In: Baby Quasar PLUS = Greater Health, Glowing Skin

ActiveForever-logo

Millions of customers can’t be wrong and they apparently agree. The 5-star consumer rated, scientifically tested and physician approved, Baby Quasar PLUS Red Light Therapy Device from ActiveForever is a wonderful investment for treating skin imperfections and obtaining a more youthful appearance and feel.

The use of cold therapy to treat a number of skin conditions, imperfections and ailments is completely safe and has a lengthy history dating back to the early twentieth century.

Baby Quasar PLUS

The Baby Quasar PLUS Red Light Therapy Device comes with a 5-year warranty, a $50 mail-in rebate and free shipping.

In 1903, Faroese-Danish scientist and physician Niels Finson was awarded the Nobel Prize in  Medicine and Physiology, “in recognition of his contribution to the treatment of diseases, especially lupus vulgaris, with concentrated light radiation, whereby he has opened a new avenue for medical science.”

American interest in light therapy waned however as they turned their attention toward antibiotics. Then in the 1990′s, NASA began experimenting with light therapy in order to maintain the health of long-term space flight crews. Their findings renewed American interest in light therapy. Today, we enjoy the benefits of “low level light therapy,” sometimes called “cold lasers,” such as the Baby Quasar PLUS. Devices such as these, have allowed light therapy to move away from medical offices to Estheticians, Day Spas, and non medical skin care facilities.

Today, light therapy has been shown in independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms. Both visible red and infrared light have been shown to promote at least 24 different positive changes at the cellular level. Clinically, there have been no recorded side effects in over 1,700 publications.

Alzheimer’s Disease and Patient Tracking

ActiveForever-logo

ActiveForever has taken the enormously successful AMBER Alert system and made it available to the adult segment. It’s called the Active Halo GPS. It’s the world’s smallest and most powerful GPS monitoring system in the world. This powerful and unobtrusive GPS tracking system has found a very special segment of the population to watch over. Often these patients have a condition such as Cortical or Sub-cortical dementia in which the brain and memory is affected. The most common disease associated with dementia is Alzheimer’s disease.

Caring For Wandering Alzheimer’s Patients

Caring for an individual with Alzheimer’s is never easy; in fact it can be a very stressful situation to a caregiver. Memory loss, dementia and wandering are some of the debilitating side effects of this disease. Studies have shown 6 in 10 people with dementia will wander. A patient wandering off, lost and confused is a situation that would cause anxiety to even the most seasoned caregiver. A patient might find themselves in an undesirable situation, lost unable to find their way home.

Fitness Vibration Cure-All: Weight Loss, Arthritis, Circulation, Well-Being

ActiveForever-logo

     Vibrate Fitness and Vitality with Whole Body Vibration

Straight from the stars comes the last word in all-encompassing fitness and health: Whole Body Vibration or WBV.

Originally used for cosmonaut training, the craze spread quickly throughout Europe and Japan. The rest, as they say, is history. Vibration enthusiasts became hooked on the benefits. They began to experience increased circulation, range of motion and flexibility.

They appreciated the improvements in muscle strength, core conditioning and stability; not to mention the faster muscle recovery following a workout. Gyms and centers devoted entirely to Whole Body Vibration came to dominate the psyche of the fitness conscious public.

Medvibe NitroFit Personal Whole Body Vibration Platform

The Medvibe NitroFit Personal Whole Body Vibration Platform features 5 built-in workout programs and a blue LED control panel to track your pulse and body fat as you exercise. $999.00 with a $50 mail-in rebate!

Whole Body Vibration allows the user to take on less physical load when compared to weight lifting, yet achieve similar results in less time. During the workout, muscle tissues contract and relax thousands of times per second, providing unmatched fat burning efficiency. Risk of injury during the workout period is greatly reduced. Weight loss, muscle strength and tone increases during WBV due to the extreme stimulus your muscles must respond to each second.

Multiple reports and independent tests confirm that athletic performance increases when whole body vibration is used in conjunction with training exercises. Manufacturers say WBV is an excellent way for those who have health restrictions that keep them from exercising, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and some forms of Arthritis, to tone muscle and condition.

ActiveForever and AMBER Alert Present Active Halo GPS

ActiveForever-logoBy Nicole Girard

Scottsdale, AZ, April 29, 2013—ActiveForever and AMBER Alert—a nationwide notification system to locate missing children through wireless communication and GPS technology—have joined forces. The result is Active Halo GPS; the latest addition to AMBER Alert’s wildly successful, trademark family of safety products.

activehalo-hand

Active Halo GPS, launching in May, is a uniquely robust, yet very cost effective GPS tracking and reporting system designed for medical and senior care facilities, as well as organizations with employees in the field. Active Halo GPS features customizable and cutting-edge options such as Real-Time Location Tracking, “Safe” Zones, Destination Alerts, SOS button with voice monitoring, 2-Way Communications—which allow designated users to “intrude” or listen in—and Breadcrumbs, from which users can track and pull location reports. Homecare companies, or any companies with employees in the field, can leverage the system for safety and productivity tracking.

Active Halo GPS reports location(s) on a five-minute interval which keeps track of a person’s whereabouts automatically. No checking in is required. The service and information is accessed via Active Halo GPS monitoring software. The Active Halo GPS works with any mobile phone carrier and is small enough to fit in a pocket. Users can call the Active Halo GPS Tracking System from a web-enabled mobile or smartphone to talk directly to the person being monitored. Conversely the device’s SOS button allows the person being monitored to reach their designated emergency contacts. Their precise location is instantly generated along with a detailed map, and 2-way voice communications. With Active Halo GPS users know with certainty their loved ones are safe, and that they can be there immediately in an emergency.

Since its 1996 inception, AMBER Alert is responsible for the safe return of 591 children. According to public records, cases of missing children involving AMBER Alert, are quickly resolved.

“Both ActiveForever and Amber Alert recognize how effectively this technology can assist in responding to adult emergency situations, business travelers, extreme or “off-trail” athletic activities, as well as the case of employers wanting to monitor the safety and productivity of their employees in the field,” says ActiveForever CEO, Erika Feinberg. “This is a very exciting launch for active adults, employers and the healthcare marketplace.”

Put simply, AMBER Alert saves lives and offers true peace of mind. Their state-of-the art GPS Tracking system has become the national standard by which missing children, and now active adults, seniors and field employees can be kept safe and productive as they engage in their usual activities.

ActiveForever in the News for the Invacare Perfecto2

ActiveForever-logoIn an article posted by Ezra Klein last Thursday on Washington Post’s Wonkblog, the writer laments about the financial and otherwise pains of renting the Invacare Perfecto2 through his traditional insurance plan. Wishes he could buy it outright from ActiveForever!

He was diagnosed as needing oxygen therapy when he sleeps. But that’s not the worst part of the ordeal. The worst part occurs when he receives his bill and is monthly reminded of how much money he is being forced to waste. His insurance does not provide him the more affordable option of purchasing the equipment.

He writes:

For the same oxygen concentrator that I would be able to buy online for around $700 (my particular model is the Invacare Perfecto2 available online with free shipping from ActiveForever for $706.30 as of this afternoon), Apria charges $137.13 per month – I am charged a copay of 20%, or $27.42.  So far, over the past 7 years, they’ve gotten well over $10,000 out of me and my insurance companies (the price has increased some – when I first started, I was paying around $19 per month).

When I tried to talk to my insurance company about just buying the machine, I was told that it was against policy because renting it assured that someone would “monitor the equipment.”  Right.  Monitoring the equipment is apparently code for someone coming in twice a year to switch out a little 1 inch filter – at $1,645.56 per year, that’s over $800 per filter. (Yeah, I priced them too – $13.41 each.)

Invacare Perfecto2 5-Liter Oxygen Concentrator

The now-famous Invacare Perfecto2. The Perfecto2 is Invacare’s lightest, smallest, and most energy efficient home oxygen concentrator. $706.30. Plus free shipping.
