Airborne adds a little pep to its line of immunity-boosting supplements

BY Michael Johnsen

LAS VEGAS — Airborne last week presented two new Airborne Plus Energy products in citrus and berry flavors to address that run-down feeling many people get when they feel they soon may be under the weather.

The new immunity/energy boosters are caffeine free and provide that extra spark through the addition of eight B vitamins to the formulation. Showcased at the ECRM Cough & Cold and Allergy EPPS, the new products also represent a new delivery form for the product: powder packets. Last year, Airborne had added chewable tablets to its line of effervescent supplements.

Carex launches two new bath safety products

BY Michael Johnsen

NORWELL, Mass. — Carex Health Brands on Wednesday launched two new bathroom safety products: the Ultra Grip extra bar and the Ultra Grip pivot grab bar.

Offering support when entering or leaving the bathtub or shower, the new grab bars assist users with balance and stability when bathing. Easily installed and removed, the grab bars’ strong suction grips hold tightly to any smooth, flat, nonporous surface. An indicator button also allows users to know when the suction grips are securely fastened as an added safety measure. The Ultra Grip Pivot Grab Bar’s pivot design allows for multiple grab bar positions.

The introduction of the Ultra Grip Grab Bars coincides with a heightened demand among independent seniors for quality bath safety products. More than one third of seniors over the age of 65 fall every year in the United States, and the majority of these falls occur in the bathroom, Carex noted.

The items are available for a suggested retail price of $17.99 each.
