Buy Stair Lifts Online

Stair lifts – all sorts
No stair lifts and 18 years of full time caring of my disabled sweetheart (she died Sept 2004) I can barely walk because of serious arm and back pain. Had I taken more time and good advise from folks around me I'd be in much better condition today for sure.
Years ago when all this started I couldn't afford the various devices that were available. I wish I could've had a stair lift and medical equipment support for transporting and lifting along with proper training. Shopping for these items and buying online now days is easy.
Medicare didn't and still in most cases doesn't help much financially and the H.M.O's don't seem too interested in helping either. I felt as though their mission was to get rid of me and not spend any money. Nevertheless, today you can purchase all sorts of products for the disabled including wheelchairs, electric, manual, curved, handicapped home lifting equipment.
Moving around the home has never been easier with stair glide lifts. You're even shown on website's how to measure a person, so ordering the right size is no mishap.
With great money back guarantee's you needn't be worried about refunds if you're not satisfied with your purchase. That's really a great feature putting us at ease especially where the money is a major issue to start with.
You'll also be able to call an 800# for free professional help - better than by going to the medical office for sure. These people make it their business helping the care providers, patients, professional medical providers get the proper lift for your needs.
Ramps, wheelchairs, beds, walkers, bath safety make up a range of marvelous support tools that are a serious absolute must not matter the expense.
Power mobility equipment can be a life saver for sure and a stair lift should be on top of everyone's list. As I age, the probable medicare and insurance supplement expense for me could've been minimized with a little better sensitivity to plight of the average caregiver.

The Power of Stretching - Dave Snape
muscles ache from a good stretch. This is quite
normal and is part of the process. Stretching has
seemingly been with us and particularly with athletes
since the beginning of time.
A very key point to good stretching is to hold the
stretch for at least seventeen seconds. This is a
pearl of wisdom gleaned from a ballet teacher a few
years back. She said that any stretch under 17
seconds was just not effective.
The 17 second rule is exceeded in the high intensity
Bikram's yoga where stretches are held for about 30
seconds. Don't forget the high level of heat that is
used in Bikram's to extract that last little bit of
stretch out of your muscles. An interesting twist
is not necessary to gain benefits from stretching.
it can't hurt, right?
So what kind of benefits can you expect from
stretching? That's an easy one. Have you ever seen
movie, Blood Sport? Did you know that Frank Dux could
truly stretch his body to the extreme. The actor that
played him was quite elastic as well.
Great elasticity is also something you might see in
well trained Spetsnaz (Russian) agents. They often
out with Russian kettlebells too. They are for
strength gains and the ability to withstand ballistic
Why are stretching and flexibility considered
to these people? Stretching gives one the ability to
have explosive power available at one's fingertips
without the need to warm up. Of course most of us are
not martial artists or agents. But, you'll be happy
know there are plenty of other benefits.
Let me give you an example. After learning to sit in
the full lotus position for long periods of time, my
ankles became very flexible. One day I was walking
along and my left foot fell into a pothole. This
pushed my ankle sideways to about 90 degrees from
Amazingly, this didn't even hurt, not one bit. If my
ankle hadn't been so flexible, I may have suffered a
sprained ankle. At the very least, it would have hurt
Key point: stretching helps you to avoid injuries.
Not only that but if you do have a muscle, tendon or
ligament injury it should heal faster, theoretically
Stretching actually grows the ligaments, tendons and
muscles being stretched. They really grow longer over
Check with your physician before undertaking any type
of exercise, including stretching.
