Carex launches Designer Quad Canes
OAKLAND, Calif. Carex Health Brands recently launched a line of Designer Quad Canes in Pink Floral Hydrangea and Blue Satin patterns.
The new quad canes are ideal for people who are independent enough to use one-hand walking aids, but still need the four point stability that quad canes can provide. Featuring a lower center of gravity for increased stability and balance, Carex’s Designer Quad Canes also offer a cushioned offset handle that reduces pressure on the wrist and are adaptable for both right- and left-hand users by rotation around the base.
Woodward Labs launches at-home nail fungus screening kit
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. Woodward Laboratories on Tuesday launched the Mycocide Nail Fungus Test Kit, the first at-home screening kit that helps diagnose toe and finger nail fungus.
“People think nail fungus is simply cosmetic, so they ignore going to the doctor to have it checked,” stated Ken Gerenraich, CEO of Woodward Laboratories. “However, nails are a window to a person’s health and if nail fungus goes undiagnosed, there can be significant health issues — especially for diabetics. The Mycocide Nail Fungus Test Kit allows people to diagnose the presence of nail fungus without spending money on co-payments, lab fees and doctors and they can do it in the comfort and privacy of their own home.”
The Mycocide Nail Fungus Test Kit provides patients with a convenient, less expensive and confidential way to determine in the comfort of their own home if they have nail fungus. Consumers use the provided nail clipper to collect a sample of a discolored and possibly infected nail and mail it to Woodward Laboratories in a postage pre-paid envelope. The nail is tested and a podiatric medical doctor reads and certifies the diagnosis. Results are mailed back to the consumer and if the test is positive, clients receive a coupon for Woodward Laboratories’ Mycocide NS, an over-the-counter antifungal treatment. Suggested retail price for the Mycocide Nail Fungus Test Kit is $20.
As part of the product launch, Woodward Laboratories will offer 10,000 consumers a free test kit through its web site, www.IsItNailFungus.com.
