  • How-to Operate the WiTouch Wireless TENS

    Posted on September 12, 2012 by Core Products

    OPERATE your Hollywog WiTouch Wireless TENS

    1. Remove the green protective liners from both gel pads on the device by slowly peeling the liner from one inside corner towards the outside corner of the electrode area. DO NOT discard the protective liners as the protective liners will be reapplied to the gel pads for storage after use. Take care to not touch or allow objects to come in contact with the gel pad as this may interfere with the adhesion properties of the gel pad.

    How-to Use the WiTouch Step 1

    2. Place the device on your back over the area of back pain, aligning the center of the device over the spine. Make sure the gel pads make good contact with the skin. DO NOT apply the gel pads/electrodes directly over the spine. If the area of back pain cannot be accessed, request assistance from another person for application.

  • It's Important to Maintain Proper Posture While Traveling

    Posted on August 9, 2012 by Core Products

    According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the majority of low back pain reported in the United States, occurs within the lower five lumbar regions. The most pain falls within the fourth and fifth lumbars, adjacent to the sacrum. The last movable joint along the spine, the lumbosacral joint, where the fifth lumbar connects to the sacrum, bears greater weight and stress, therefore has greater risk of strain or injury.

    Poor posture, fatigue and exhaustion are common causes of low-back pain. As such, one of the more common complaints of travelers is an aching back. Why? Because travelers sit for prolonged periods of time, they haul heavy objects like luggage and children through airports and hotels, and sleep in strange beds with unfamiliar pillows.

    Wether you are traveling or at a desk, prolonged sitting will fatigue the back muscles. Eventually one slips into a poor posture. The solution is to sit straight and use a lumbar cushion that will support your lower back. These cushions can be very effective in promoting proper posture in any chair while providing support and comfort for your lower back.

    With many different body shapes, many different styles of back support cushions are available. While foam comfort supports are common, others use fiber, rigid plastic or air bladders. At the heart of each of our foam back cushions is a precision cut foam core manufactured with the highest quality, long-lasting foam. Stepping up form basic models are deluxe versions that can include a higher grade fabric and positioning belts.

  • Can a Pillow Help Provide Natural Pain Relief?

    Posted on July 13, 2012 by Core Products

    Natural Pain ReliefOrthopedic Pillows - Core Products

    Core Products' cervical support pillows offer a drug free way to help accommodate, correct, and maintain your cervical spine. This helps you achieve the proper sleeping posture needed to help relieve headaches, neck strains, arthritis, and other ailments. These pillows accomplish this by helping support your head and neck in their most natural, neutral position. A proper sleeping posture may provide relief from, and help prevent nerve pressure and airway blockage (a major cause of snoring), and assist in recovery from whiplash and other neck injuries.

    Back and Side Sleeping

    Our uniquely shaped pillows offer incredible flexibility for both back and side sleepers. Back sleepers will find their head cradled in the center of the pillow, allowing the lobe to support their neck in its most natural position. Side sleepers will enjoy the raised portion on the sides of the pillow, where the head and neck are properly supported.
