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.

We spend long hours at a desk, typing away at a computer, none the wiser as sinister and sometimes deadly, venous disorders such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) wreak havoc on our often unappreciated legs.
Our legs are a dependable indicator of our overall health and if you’re like most people, your legs don’t get the loving care they deserve.
Seemingly mild conditions such as muscle aches, swelling, fatigue or pain, can be a warning sign of something bigger. That doesn’t mean we have to live in fear, but it is a good idea to take extra precautions.
Quality compression from SIGVARIS facilitates healthy blood circulation which keeps the wearer feeling fresh and energized throughout the day.
ActiveForever carries an enormous selection from SIGVARIS to fit every style, personality and need. With so many styles to choose from they can complement any outfit. More importantly however, they are utterly indistinguishable from their non-compression counterparts.
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.
Active Halo Patient Alarm with GPS Tracking
That is why at ActiveForever we are thrilled to be able to offer the ActiveHalo GPS tracking system to the caregivers, families, loved ones, friends and neighbors of Alzheimer’s patients. Active Halo GPS is a uniquely feature-rich, yet very cost-effective, customizable GPS tracking and reporting system designed for medical and senior care facilities, were patient wandering is a real concern. Now it’s easy to go about your day while staying abreast of the whereabouts of those in your care.
Located front and center on the Active Halo GPS unit is an “SOS” button with voice monitoring. It gives the caregiver the ability to “listen-in” to surrounding sounds while it simultaneously sends instant text and email alerts with location information to a pre-selected group of recipients. “Safe” zones alert you when the person you are monitoring has wandered outside of installed parameters. Advanced Breadcrumbing functionality allows for up-to-the minute tracking to make locating the patient easy and anxiety free.
The Future of Pain Relief is Now
The sheer volume of equipment and tools available to provide pain relief can be overwhelming. With the cutting-edge, FDA approved technology supplied by the Laser Touch One, the bloated medicine cabinet of individuals seeking pain relief can be all but abandoned. The LTO is simple, effective and so safe it can be used as often as needed.
This hand-held, ergonomically sound device from ActiveForever houses the proven pain fighting agents of low level laser therapy and electrical stimulation. With these combined agents, the LTO supplies proven and highly effective treatment for pains due to Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Tendinitis, chronic joint disorders, neck pain and more.

With the Baby Boomers heading toward retirement and people living longer than ever before, the size of the elderly population is ever-increasing. It’s no wonder research, developments and studies involving Alzheimer’s seem to dominate the news cycle these days.
There’s a distinct shortage of equipment and device options available to meet the specific needs of an Alzheimer’s caregiver. Here at ActiveForever we’re thrilled to be able to offer ActiveHalo GPS, the world’s smallest and most powerful GPS monitoring system in the world to the caregivers, families, loved ones, friends and neighbors of Alzheimer’s patients.
With the ultra-feature-rich Active Halo GPS tracking system it is easy to go about your day while staying abreast of the whereabouts of those in your care. “Safe” zones alert you when the person being tracked has ventured outside of installed parameters. Advanced Breadcrumbing functionality allows for up-to-the minute tracking.

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.
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.

Let’s face it. Things are not the way they used to be. We as a society live under the near-constant threat of attack. It seems that every day in the news we read about people suffering at the hands of a terrorist attack, shooting spree or record-breaking natural disaster. The list goes on and on.

In 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.
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.)

Have you ever tried to wrestle a bear?
Some would consider it a small feat compared to the daunting task of putting on compression stockings. You can pull and push, struggle and strategize, but those stockings are not going anywhere.
If you can relate, it’s time to give up the fight. The Jobst Stocking Donner from ActiveForever is perfect for anyone who wishes to continue to enjoy the benefits of improved circulation and comfort without the fuss. Remember: compression and combat are not a package deal. You do not have to struggle anymore.
The stocking aid from Jobst is affordable, portable, easy to store and is an especially ideal solution for anyone with limited strength and dexterity.
According to J. Keith Preston, MD, FAANS, a board certified neurosurgeon and member of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, more than half of all Americans will experience back pain at some point in their lives.
Epidural shots have been found to be ineffective in treating painful conditions such as Lumbar Spinal Stenosis and the problems such as nausea, vomiting, depression, addiction, hypothermia and other side effects that accompany the use of opioids to treat pain, are well documented.
The Dr. Ho HoPhysio Back Pain Relief Kit enjoys enormous success with patients of a wide range of back aches and pains; both chronic and acute conditions. Acupressure nodes in the Dr. Ho HoPhysio Perfect Back Stretch are highly effective pain relievers. Aching and inflamed muscles are stretched and relaxed back to health naturally, without invasive surgery and dangerous drugs. Fans of Dr. Ho’s credit his successful line of products as a soothing alternative to costly chiropractor visits.

The Quasar MD Plus Advanced Light Therapy is an excellent remedy for problem skin as well. This Quasar is 25 percent stronger than the original Quasar MD, treating acne and signs of aging with no downtime.

Facial hair is a frequent culprit behind drab skin which is often overlooked. Female celebrities these days take pains to ensure all but their scalps are completely devoid of hair. As a result, their complexion’s appear baby smooth and clear. The Vector Electrolysis Permanent Hair Removal System provides for painless and permanent hair removal and constant red-carpet readiness.
And of course…
- Make sure your skin stays fully hydrated. Drink lots of water and invest in a quality moisturizer suited for your skin type.
- Eat a healthy diet full of whole, not processed foods. Foods rich in “good fats” such as salmon, avocados, nuts and seeds are ideal.
- Wear sunscreen and sunglasses. All that squinting does leave a mark!
- Don’t smoke.
- Always make sure you get proper rest, and while you’re at it, sleep on your back. Over time we develop our own unique sleep lines depending on where we rest our faces. People who sleep on their backs do not develop these lines. If nightly lying in the casket style sounds unmanageable to you, it’s time to invest in a groove-shaped pillow that supports that position. The enVy Pillow—truly a modern marvel of modern sleep and wellness technology—works like a dream.
