Rehab Your Knee With the Universal Knee Brace (https://goo.gl/GfZ76r)

Getting injured is a pain. You may have been playing sports and hurt your knee during a game. Being sidelined isn't fun, and you might not be able to get back in the game until your knee is all better. You hate letting your team down and watching all the action from the side.

You may have been working and accidentally twisted your knee. If your job is physical, it may not be possible to work until your knee starts to feel better. This may result in light duty work or completely staying at home until your knee is better. Not working can lead to loss of wages, which can be stressful.

Our universal knee brace is the perfect solution to help support your knee while it's healing. The open patella design allows comfort while the knee is supported on all the other sides. It's very easy to put on and off, and can even be washed if it gets dirty or sweaty. Wearing this can help you get back to your sport or job sooner.

Aging Does Not Necessarily Preclude Healthy Arteries (https://goo.gl/BAC6Jf)

It's often thought that seniors will have stiffer arteries than someone in their 20s, but that's not always true. According to the American Heart Association, having a healthy lifestyle makes all the difference. If someone who's young has poor health habits, they may have weak and stiff arteries.

It is true that as someone ages, they're more prone to having high blood pressure and their arteries getting stiffer. A majority of people who are older do have these problems. However, it doesn't have to be that way.

Living a healthy lifestyle, such as not smoking, staying active daily, and eating well can all help your artery health. Living like this will decrease your risk of high blood pressure and stiff arteries. These increase a person's chance of getting heart disease.

Staying Safe in Your Home (http://gplnk.co/2hlzVM1)

While many people worry about getting injured while they’re out, injuries are most common in the home. People tend to have their guards down more because they’re not in a new place. They feel comfortable with what’s in their house and may not look where they’re going.

Minimizing movement, especially while in the bathroom, will help you decrease your risk of injury. When someone has a disability or injury that decreases their strength, just sitting down on the toilet can be very difficult. Many standard toilets are too low for those who don’t have normal leg strength, so consider getting a toilet seat extender. This will make the distance you have to sit down much smaller so it won’t be as much of a strain.

The bathtub can be tricky too since it has a slick surface, which only gets exaggerated by water. A shower bench or seat can greatly improve someone’s safety if they lack strength or balance. They can sit down before they even turn the water on, and then turn on the water while cleaning themselves.

Keeping Your Bathroom Accessible (http://gplnk.us/2qRxBlM)

The bathroom is the place in the house most people are likely to slip and injure themselves. Making sure it's easy to use for the people who are living there will help decrease this risk.

Grab bars or rails are easy to install and will securely stay in place. These will help you stand or sit if you need help with balance. They can be installed around the toilet, bathtub, and shower. They come in varying textures, styles, and lengths. Never substitute anything besides a professional grab bar, such as a towel rack. These are not meant to hold much weight and will easily come off the wall.

Lighting your bathroom is another important aspect to prevent falls. If you can't see where you're going, you're more likely to trip and fall. Make sure it's lit up during the day as well as the night. You can use a nightlight or an illuminated switch to create a clear path for going to the bathroom safely at night.

The Benefits of IFC (https://goo.gl/GfZ76r)

IFC, or interferential stimulation therapy, is where electrodes are used with medium and high-frequency currents to get deep into the tissue. Each current is different and will form together to create interference. This effectively blocks any pain messages to the brain, which results in pain relief for the patients.

This is one of the higher frequency treatments that is used. IFC goes into the skin much easier and can reach further down compared to other electrotherapy alternatives. IFC is often used for arthritis, back, and shoulder pain. It can be used for post-surgical and post-trauma pain as well as chronic intractable pain. Other benefits include decreasing muscle spasms, promoting muscle relaxation, stimulating circulation, and decreasing inflammation.

IFC helps increase blood flow, which helps remove any damaged tissue and transport necessary nutrients for healing. The local nerve cells will be stimulated, which block pain signals and increase the number of endorphins in the body. We have a variety of IFC units to choose from at OTC Wholesale!

10 Top Tips for Bathroom Safety (http://gplnk.co/2hlzVM1)

The bathroom can be a very dangerous place in your home with its hard surfaces and slippery floors. Over 200,000 injuries occur each year in the United States in the bathroom alone. If you have someone with a disability in your home, that risk increases even more. Stay safe with some simple tips.

Get rid of any throw rugs. These are the top reason people slip and fall at home. While they look nice, they're not at all secure and one wrong step can result in a serious injury.

Install nonslip mats and strips in the tub. The bathtub is another place people can easily slip. The surface is already slippery, and it gets dangerous when that area gets wet. Making the surface less slippery will help decrease the risk of falls.

Ensure the bathroom floor stays dry. A weighted shower curtain can help make sure no leaks get on the floor. If you notice you spilled water, clean it up right away so the next person doesn't slip on it.

Fall Proofing Your Home (http://bit.ly/2rAMCVU)

Did you know that six out of every ten falls happen in the home? This is where we spend a majority of our time, so we should put more thought into making it safer. Many falls can be prevented by making simple changes that only take a few seconds.

One of the easiest fixes is to make sure you improve the lighting both inside and outside. If someone's coming home late at night, it might be harder to see steps or any objects in the way. The same goes for lights you may turn on at night, such as the bathroom light or counter lights in the kitchen. Make sure they're bright enough that you can see where you're going.

For those who may be older or have a disability, install a few handrails or grab bars. This will make it easier to get around if they have a sudden moment of weakness or need help getting over something. Grab bars are especially helpful in the bathroom, where it's already slippery.
