Being technology lovers, vapers generally stay on top of the latest tech developments. We rounded up five cool gadgets that promote wellness, in case you missed them…
Heat wraps. The mighty Tyrannosaurus rex may have first learned to wallow in hot springs after a rough day of chasing down its next meal. The ancient Greeks and Egyptians used heat to relieve pain and stiffness. Today you can harness the power of heat without hot springs, embers, or being tethered to a heating pad. Try these after a tough workout or a weekend of touch football.
Posture perfecting (Lumo lift). This intriguing device acts as a personal coach for perfecting your posture. We all know we should stay straight, and that slouching all day in a chair or at a keyboard can lead to back problems, but we lapse. Lumo’s gentle vibration will remind you any time you slouch.
Portable ultrasound (sam). Ultrasound has been used for decades by physical therapists to treat common musculoskeletal injuries like sprains, strains, and tendonitis. sam® is a wearable, miniaturized device that delivers ultrasound therapy without the need to hook up to a giant ultrasound machine at a physical therapist’s office. It’s even being used in a clinical trial for osteoarthritis pain.
E-stim devices (Quell). That knee you banged up playing football in college limiting your activities? Give Quell a shot. This ingenious device claims to relieve chronic pain in as little as 15 minutes with electrical impulses. It works by targeting sensory nerves, which then trigger your body’s natural pain blocking response. Quell can be worn up to 40 hours on a single charge.
Coming soon: a virtual diet and nutrition coach (BitBite). The Bitbite is a revolutionary wearable that promises to help you lose weight and improve eating habits by acting as a personal nutrition coach. It tracks what you eat, when you eat it, whether you’re sitting (good) or standing (bad) and even whether you’re eating too quickly. It provides real time guidance like “chew more slowly – enjoy your meal” after tracking your chewing speed. Most importantly, there’s no cheating with this device, since it’s worn in the ear and hears every bite and sip!
