Chicago chiropractor introduces Tru-Align, a self-care pain treatment system

BY Michael Johnsen

 
 
CHICAGO — Kacelia recently launched the Tru-Align body system — a self-care treatment system that is clinically proven to alleviate back and neck pain and other bodily ailments, as well as improve overall posture and alignment by using for only 20 minutes a day. Kacelia's Tru-Align Body System works safely and naturally to decompress and reshape muscles and tissue in the comfort of one's home.
 
Retailing for a suggested $395, the Tru-Align Body System helps relieve pain and improve posture, flexibility and spinal alignment ranging from the groin all the way up to the neck and jaw. By targeting key points along the body, it creates a stable platform for gravity to gently yet effectively do its job. It all starts by mapping out the individual's body shape and setting the pads in the correct positions. When lying on these pads face down, the sacroiliac, spinal, shoulder and TMJ joints are allowed to relax and find their natural shape.
 
Kacelia co-founders, Chicago chiropractor Evelyn Zuehlke-Haworth and her husband Kelly Haworth, created the Tru-Align System after Zuehlke-Haworth realized that many of her patients needed a treatment that went beyond her office, something they could have on hand at home or while they traveled.
 
"I was inspired, I wanted to create a system to help people," she said. "It can be life changing as so many people live with pain and the Tru-Align System can ease this pain."
 
From headaches and pinched nerves to sciatica and pregnancy discomforts, Kacelia has been clinically proven to bring relief, Kacelia stated. With consistent use it can improve overall wellness and diminish debilitating chronic pain.

Ankle Roll Guard launches product to prevent ankle sprains

BY Michael Johnsen

 
 
MERIDIAN, Idaho — Ankle Roll Guard on Friday announced the launch of the Armor1 Ankle Roll Guard, a new patented support that prevents ankle sprains by cushioning the ankle from an inversion or "roll." Unlike a brace, it fits securely around the outside of any shoe type and allows the user to retain ankle mobility and comfort, while still offering protection against sprains. 
 
With customers in physical therapy, podiatry and various sports such as basketball, volleyball, lacrosse and running, the Ankle Roll Guard is a game changer in the ankle sprain prevention/ankle brace market, the company stated. Suggested retail price is $37.50.
 
Based on customer feedback and clinical testing, the new design features a light-weight, durable EVA rubber material and silicone that grips to a shoe and a left/right option for optimal fit, protection and placement of cushion under ankle ligaments. The product fits all shoe sizes and types. 
 
The Armor1 Ankle Roll Guard provides ankle stability and protection for users with chronic lateral ankle instability, the company noted, and clinical testing using a motion analysis system showed inversion protection and better range of motion versus a brace or tape.

Only one-in-three wellness plan participants actively engage on a weekly basis

BY Michael Johnsen

DALLAS — Americans with wellness plans said that while most like their plans, just 36% are engaged in the plan on a weekly basis throughout the entire year, according to a HealthMine survey of 806 consumers released Thursday. 
 
The survey found that 38% of surveyed Americans who have a sponsored healthcare plan also have a sponsored wellness plan and 35% of respondents said they were in a wellness plan that included both lifestyle management and disease management tools. 
 
Overall respondents felt that a wellness plan helped them manage health, but are unsure if it helped to lower or improve healthcare costs. While 70% of respondents said that their wellness plan helped them manage their health, just 38% said it helped them manage healthcare costs. In addition, 71% of respondents said that they were in the program to care for their health as a primary incentive.
 
Many wellness plans are initiated with monitoring devices but less than half (45%) of wellness plans automatically update data from tracking devices. This is despite the fact that 70% of respondents said that their wellness plans were based on completing exercise-related activities.
 
"In healthcare delivery today, more than ever, employers and payers must engage their members with health information that is personally relevant, clinically focused and automatically available anytime, anywhere," said Bryce Williams, HealthMine CEO. "Clinical data tied to lifestyle management gives consumers real measurements to see if they are making progress. That creates sustainable engagement, which delivers real healthcare cost savings."
 
The HealthMine survey was fielded by Survey Sampling International from Dec. 29 to 31, 2014.
