Let's check out two very useful ideas!
Anti Snoring Device
Snoring is not just an uncomfortable experience for those around us, it could also be potentially dangerous for us. For a very long time, anti-snoring devices in the market have worked to keep the air passages open, but they need to be strapped on the face which could be a major deterrent.
A new anti-snoring device in the market called Airing aims to solve this problem by using a patient’s air pressure itself to keep the air passages open. It is made of several layers of air pads that can expand outwards and inwards depending on the air flow. The device itself is made of medical grade silicone and the nose buds fit into and seal themselves in the wearer’s nostrils, so the device doesn’t fall off when they sleep.
The greatest advantage of this design is that it is completely unobtrusive to use and easy to carry. What’s more, it fits seamlessly into the nose without obstructing any other part of the face.
As for the downsides, there’s the fact that it is only a prototype at this point and needs several clinical trials before it becomes a medical grade product. Also, the manufacturers have nothing to say about how long it can be used for before a new one becomes necessary.
There’s a lot of variation in the way we all walk. Some of us may put undue pressure on the softer part of the foot. Some may be using the wrong kind of footwear that is squeezing the foot. Even otherwise, those suffering from Diabetes often find themselves with foot-related problems.
Orthopedic footwear is recommended for those who suffer from foot problems so as to prevent more chronic, often painful conditions such as bunions and foot corn. Some orthopedic footwear may also be designed to help with pain in the ankles and knees. Based on what purpose the footwear serves, several designs are available in the market. Like this one.
Patients who use orthopedic footwear often report greater ease in walking and performing everyday activities. Orthopedic socks often help those with varicose veins. For those who have problems in their soles, special silicone inserts provide support.
Whatever your concern is, your general physician can guide you on the best footwear product for you. Consistent usage does help and people who use orthopedic footwear often report a significant improvement in their condition.
As with everything, there are a few downsides. Silicone inserts can cause you to sweat more in the feet, making walking more difficult. Orthopedic socks may be uncomfortable to keep on for long. Likewise, footwear needs replacement, and it can be expensive. However, the benefits of using the right product far outweigh these concerns.
