SoClean2_Styled-35 SoClean 2 CPAP Cleaner and Sanitizing Machine

No matter how fastidious you are about keeping clean, the truth is that you’re surrounded by germs everywhere you go. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, indoor pollutant levels can be up to 100 times higher than levels of outdoor pollution. Plus, the common objects that you come into contact with as you go about your day – door handles, appliances, etc. – are breeding grounds for bacteria that can transfer onto your body.

Now, the point here isn’t to scare you into living inside a bubble, it’s merely to convey the importance of regularly cleaning your CPAP equipment if you’re one of the many people who uses this device to treat sleep apnea. You never know what kinds of germs could accumulate in your machine as it’s attached to your face while you’re sleeping or resting on your bedside table when it’s not in use. And when your CPAP machine is dirty, you risk getting sick or not having it function properly.

While it’s always a good idea to follow the cleaning instructions outlined by the CPAP manufacturer or given to you by your doctor, there are some general best practices you can follow for keeping your CPAP equipment clean. Let’s take a look.

What are some different methods for cleaning CPAP equipment?

  • Soap and Water – One simple method for cleaning your CPAP equipment is to take it apart and wash each part with warm, soapy water. It’s recommended that you use a fragrance-free, dye-free dish detergent; rinse with warm water and let your equipment air-dry. It’s important that it dries thoroughly, as any lingering presence of moisture attracts and breeds germs.
  • Wipes – There are wipes out there that are specifically designed for cleaning and deodorizing CPAP masks and accessories. By regularly using these wipes, you can effectively reduce the buildup of germs, grease and oils.
  • Chemical Cleaning – Ammonium chloride solutions – such as those used in sleep labs or hospitals – effectively kill a broad range of CPAP germs. You can spray the diluted solution on your equipment to fulfill everyday cleaning needs or soak your equipment to fully disinfect it.
  • SoClean® 2 CPAP Cleaner and Sanitizer – This is by far the easiest and most effective way to clean and sanitize your CPAP equipment. Simply place your equipment into the SoClean® 2, press the “Start” button and walk away. The SoClean® 2 uses activated oxygen to destroy 99.9% of CPAP mold, bacteria and viruses – no water or messy chemicals required. Your equipment remains completely dry throughout the entire process, so you don’t have to worry about any moisture.

How often should you clean your CPAP equipment?

Since the mask is the part that you come into closest contact with while using your CPAP machine, manufacturers typically recommend cleaning it daily. It’s also important to empty and clean the humidifier on a daily basis and let it air dry before adding fresh water to the reservoir. As for the hose, filter and other accessories, it’s okay to clean these weekly.

Of course, keep in mind that when you use the SoClean® 2, you can simply and effectively clean and sanitize all of your equipment every day without having to take it apart or spend any time on it. The SoClean® 2 even sanitizes the water in the reservoir for you.

Quick Tips

Here are some quick tips to remember when cleaning your CPAP equipment.

  • Always unplug your CPAP machine before cleaning it
  • Avoid using alcohol-based products or abrasive household cleaning solutions, as they can damage your equipment
  • Allow your equipment to dry thoroughly after each wash
  • Replace your disposable filter regularly
  • Never submerge your equipment in water

A clean CPAP machine is an effective CPAP machine. Make sure you do what it takes to keep yours functioning properly so that you can experience relief from your sleep apnea symptoms.

Hip protection undergarments have finally come into the next generation with ComfiHips®

How to choose an undergarment that can help prevent a hip fracture when someone falls:

A favorite choice of high quality and very well-priced hip protectors.
A favorite choice of high quality and very well-priced hip protectors.

Breaking a hip can stop you in your tracks.  Whether you’re an athlete, a senior citizen, or someone with a high risk of falling, wearing a hip protector can help you avoid breaking your hip when you fall! It can also help you avoid re-injuring your hips after you’ve had surgery.  You can also get two pair for the price of just one traditional brand of hip protector undergarment.

In the past, most hip protectors have either been “plastic shells (hard) or foam pads (soft) usually fitted in pockets in specially designed underwear”. A simple piece of foam placed in the hip area of an undergarment has been called “a hip protector.” If you pinch your fingers on those foam pads, they tend to bottom out. So, can you imagine what kind of impact this piece of foam would absorb if

someone’s entire body weight fell onto the pad? There’s now a much better choice of padding technology that protects hips

during falls.

After 5 years of research and development,

including a materials impact study at the University of Florida, and numerous consultations with experts in the field, ComfiHips® was developed.  With its 5 patents (U.S. and International), ComfiHips is truly the next generation of hip protectors!

Why is it the best for you and your loved ones?

  1. The pads have an inner core that is used to help absorb and dissipate impact in automobiles, boats and trains. Each pad weighs less than 25 potato chips yet can absorb up to 87.2% of impact upon a lateral fall!
  2. ComfiHips® pads are low profile, flexible and comfortable and you cannot pinch your fingers down on them, unlike others.  You can definitely feel the difference in quality and protection between the traditional hip protectors and the hip protection you gain from ComfiHips.
  3. In an independent study at SUNY, “ComfiHips statistically outperformed the other hip protectors it was tested against”. All hip protectors were tested up to 10,000 Newtons, which is a huge amount of force that simulates a real life fall.
  4. The pads, which are made in the USA, easily fit into the undergarment inside pockets and sit strategically over the greater trochanter. (Hip bone).
  5. Extremely cost effective – 2 undergarments and 2 pads in a package so you never have to be without your hip protector! (Unlike others on the market that make you buy 1 undergarment and 2 pads in a package and cost more!) Also includes “Fall Prevention Tips for Home Safety” We don’t want you falling, and you want your hips comfy as you’re wearing a protective undergarment.  You can definitely count on ComfiHips being comfortable, staying in place, and helping to protect your hips! Unlike the traditional choices out there, ComfiHips offers extra undergarments, 2 in a package, for extra days of the week, wash and wear, also making it so affordable!
  6. The undergarments (ladies or men’s briefs) help bring dignity back to our users; different than competitors’ unisex or strange colored undergarments.  Take a look at the difference between the ComfiHips undergarments made for males and females versus what competitors offer.
  7. Feedback from customers include comments such as: “I love them because no one can tell that I am wearing them, and they’re very comfortable!”
  8. Simply measure the waist at the belly button and look at our size chart – if an incontinent product is also worn, no worries, just go up one size.
  9. Washing of undergarments follows the CDC Guidelines or simply wash them in cold water.
  10. Pads can be wiped with a Virox wipe, Clorox wipe or soapy water.  Do not put them in the washing machine, as they need to be worn in an undergarment at all times.

ActiveForever is so proud to bring you ComfiHips® today so you may help to improve the quality of life for yourself, and a loved one!  http://www.activeforever.com/search?q=comfihips

Rarely will you find such an amazing deal on two great items. We believe that we have found the perfect devices for the young and the mature AND we are able to offer them at a phenomenal price.

We would first like to introduce you to the Home Electronic Silencer. This device is simply magical in so that it will automatically silence any device that is plugged into it when the home phone line rings. You may ask yourself who would benefit from such an item and we have the answer.

A16603a

It is getting more and more common for folks to work from a home office and it is important to have peace and quiet when a client (or boss) calls on the phone. With this device you will never have to say, “hold on, I have to turn the … down.” Now the phone rings and everything is silenced. Magical. It will even pause the movie you are watching. Pretty cool.

A second group of people this item would work for is the hard of hearing. It clearly makes sense that they can’t hear the phone ring with the TV blasting and the person on the other end certainly can’t enjoy the conversation when all they can hear are re-runs of “The Love Boat” in the background. When the phone rings the TV is silenced by the Home Electronic Silencer. This is great news for both the phone call receiver and the placer.

Did I mention this would be a perfect gift for someone moving into a planned living community? It would be a perfect addition to your new resident welcome basket!

The second great item will benefit everyone who tries to sneak in little cat naps throughout the day. Most of us are not near a bed, lounge chair or hammock so we have to make do. Face down on a hard vertical surface or if we can get passed losing the feeling and mobility in our arms we will place our bulky and heavy skulls on our arms to get that cat nap we crave. ActiveForever has uncovered a very unique item that will now allow for face down cat naps without the pain and discomfort of an “asleep arm”. The Slumber Sleeve  can be worn over your arm, wrist, leg or ankle, it moves with you and you can change sleep positions naturally – and sleep like a kid again.

This would make a perfect gift for your graduating senior that is heading off to college. Long hours in the library makes Slumber Sleeve a very valuable tool in surviving university life and its many demands. Specifically, sleep deprivation demands.

Both the Home Electronic Silencer and the Slumber Sleeve can be purchased in our Retail Stores for .99 cents! Or save up to 86% by purchasing online!

Climbing Gear to Keep You Safe


A26917aWhat once began as mountaineering, rock climbing has added “sport” to the exploration of vertical surfaces. Both require experience, technical knowledge, and athleticism to maintain safety. ActiveForever is proud to announce that we have taken on a whole line of rock climbing gear.

Rock climbing is inherently dangerous, so to minimize potential injuries resulting from a fall, climbers are first trained in the physics of rock climbing and as importantly they use safety gear. All sports have basic protective gear like football helmets, shin guards and jock cups. Rock climbing is not any different and also has protective gear. The most basic protective equipment is a climbing rope. A26351aOnce rock climbers would simply tie a rope around their chest knowing they would be severely injured if they fell but they had a slight advantage over emanate death. With advances in technology came the development of harnesses, carabineers, and hooks which are used for clipping into rappel anchors, connecting gear, and belay devices to catch a falling climber, hold or lower a climber and for rappelling.

If you are looking to become a mountaineer and explore the Alps or if you would like to scale the walls of the Grand Canyon as a rock climber, you will need the right equipment. It does not matter what type of climber you want to become, aid climber, free climber, boulderer, solo climber, deep-water soloer, lead climber, roped solo climber, mulit-pitch climber, sport climber, traditional climber, bottom rope climber, top rope climber, crack climber, face climber, slab climber, or a simul climber, you will need the proper gear if you would like to be safe while defying gravity.

Down & Dirty

0041106_quasar-md-plus-advanced-light-therapy-deviceI am definitely a fan of pampering, from a pedicure to a deep tissue massage I have no problem spoiling myself. For some reason I have never been a fan of facials. I relate spa treatments to relationships and for me, deep tissue massages give me that “friend with benefits” connection – I know what I am getting into, it can be a little painful but the end result is very satisfying. Facials are like the “Wham, Bam, Thank You Ma’am.” While indulgent and filled with euphoria while they are happening, the magic is normally gone within a day and I am left feeling empty and yearning for more.

I enjoy the relaxation part of a facial, but for the money, I feel like I can do better with a primed at-home skin regime, annual visits to my dermatologist and bi-weekly treatment with my Baby Quasar PLUS. Facials offer a topical treatment and don’t penetrate the deep layers of skin where I need the most attention.

My Baby Quasar PLUS (BQ Plus) is my “Knight in Shining Armor” – one that comes to my aide, makes me feel beautiful and never lets me down. I know that when I use my BQ PLUS, I am getting to the root of the matter. Highly absorbent red and infrared light penetrates my skin producing a unique therapeutic effect thus treating instead of simply masking my skin. What I have saved from not getting facials has more than paid for the BQ PLUS. The look and feel of my skin has improved dramatically and now I have more money to spend on other things.

According to the International Spa Association, facials are the third most popular spa treatment right behind massages and manicures or pedicures. It’s understandable – facials certainly make you feel good and good about you by offering relaxation and rejuvenation. If you are merely looking for a temporary fix and pick me up, facials are probably for you. However, if you are looking for lasting results, in-home and portable convenience and exceptional customer support, Baby Quasar Plus Red Light Therapy Device or Quasar MD Plus Advanced Light Therapy Device can probably give you that “happily, ever after” you are looking for.

Mobility Scooters Solutions

As we grow and age, preserving our independence becomes more and more important. One of the hallmarks of independence is mobility. The passage of time and or injury can lead to a loss of mobility. With age for example, whether through muscle or bone loss it can become increasingly difficult to move from place to place. Injuries, whether temporary or permanent can makes us dependent on the help of others which in many instances may not be available as often as we need it.
0053821_daytona-3505-gt-scooter_260
Therefore, depending on your injury or your physical condition, having access to a mobility scooter maybe the answer. Mobility scooters can be used indoors or out of doors. The scooters are well designed and electric powered. They have small turning radius’s which makes it ideal for performing everyday tasks within the home. In addition, when running errands such as going shopping or perhaps even attending the grandkids graduation, they can be the ideal solution.
They come in a variety of sizes, power ratings, speeds and weight carrying capacities. The scooters are very easy to maintain and to operate. They are designed to make it easy to enter and exit. So if you enjoy your freedom whether at home, at work, or at play the mobility scooter can add years to your independence.

Great Skin Care

Great skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can help delay the natural aging process and prevent many skin problems. One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of over exposure to the sun can cause wrinkles, age spots and an increased risk of skin cancer.

r and rUsing a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF rating of at least 15 can be effective against the sun’s harmful rays. In addition to protecting yourself from the sun’s harmful rays you might also consider moisturizers. Activities such as long hot showers and baths can remove oils and moisture from your skin. A daily regimen of using moisturizers and lotions can be effective in restoring the skin’s natural oils.

Finally, uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin and a healthy state of mind take steps to manage your stress. Following these simple steps can lead to dramatic improvements in your skin’s appearance.

Orthopedics Solutions

ortho The musculoskeletal system is comprised of the bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, skin and nerves. Within these systems there can be many disorders. The medical specialty for these systems is called Orthopedics. A few examples of potential disorders are:

 Fractures and dislocations
 Torn ligaments, sprains, and strains
 Tendon injuries, pulled muscles, and bursitis
 Ruptured disks, sciatica, and low back pain
 Arthritis and osteoporosis

Almost all of these injuries or disorders will require after care, once you have received treatment from your physician. The after care and potentially the need for medical supplies will be important for a full return to mobility, strength and health. In many instances these products have been designed by orthopedic surgeons and will be worn during recovery and/or rehabilitation.
So, whether you have a chronic condition such as arthritis or back pain, a workplace injury such as a burn or strain, or a sports injury such as a torn ligament or fracture. You can find pain relief through the use of orthopedic products.

Oxygen Therapy Solutions

oxygen tankOxygen is essential for all life. Oxygen is found in the air we breathe, and the human body using our lungs is able to extract and deliver it to our blood and tissues. The transfer from our lungs to our blood takes place via very tiny air sacs call alveoli that are covered with tiny blood vessels called capillaries. As our blood passes through the capillaries, it becomes oxygen rich and our hearts then pump the oxygen rich blood throughout our bodies. For most people this process is effortless and occurs throughout our lifetime.
However, some people with breathing disorders are not able to get enough oxygen naturally and require supplemental therapies. Ironically, although oxygen is naturally occurring, it is considered a medicine and must be prescribed by a doctor if you have a breathing disorder. Examples of breathing disorders that affect the transfer of oxygen to the blood include pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung disease, respiratory trauma, emphysema, heart failure, and cystic fibrosis.
Your doctor will decide whether you need oxygen therapy based on the results of tests, such as an arterial blood gas test and/or a pulse oximetry test. These tests measure how much oxygen is in your blood. A low oxygen level is a sign that you need oxygen therapy.
Oxygen therapy helps many people function better and have more active lives. It also may:
• Decrease shortness of breath and fatigue
• Improve sleep
• Increase the lifespan of people who have COPD
Although you may need oxygen therapy long term, it doesn’t have to limit your daily routine. Portable oxygen units can make it easier for you to move around and do many daily activities. Talk with your doctor if you have questions about whether certain activities are safe for you.
A home equipment provider will work with you to make sure you have the supplies and equipment you need. Trained staff will also show you how to use the equipment correctly and safely.
Oxygen therapy is generally safe, but it can pose a fire hazard. To safely use your oxygen equipment, please follow the instructions you receive from your home equipment provider.

Assistive Listening Devices

0041588_bellman-symfon-mino-digital-personal-amplifier_260Hearing loss is a common disorder associated with aging. About 30-35 percent of adults between the ages of 65 and 75 years have some hearing loss. As we age, that percentage increases until at 75, it is estimated that 40-50 percent of people have some hearing loss. The medical term for this gradual hearing loss is Presbycusis.
The hearing loss associated with Presbycusis does not encompass the full spectrum of sounds. For example, it may be difficult for someone to hear the nearby chirping of a bird or the ringing of a telephone. However, the same person may be able to hear clearly the low-pitched sound of a truck rumbling down the street.
The ear is comprised of three parts the outer ear, the middle ear and the inner ear. Presbycusis most commonly arises in the inner ear, but can occur as well in the middle ear or from changes in the nerves pathways leading to the brain. Typically, both ears experience the same degree of hearing loss, but it is possible that only one ear is affected.
As mentioned earlier, the onset is gradual so your symptoms may go unnoticed for years. Once noticed, these symptoms may include:
 High-pitched sounds such as “s” and “th” are difficult to hear or tell apart.
 The speech of others may seem mumbled or garbled.
 Conversations may be difficult to follow, especially when there is background noise.
 Male voices may be easier to hear than the higher pitched voices of women.
 Certain sounds may seem annoying or overly loud.
 Tinnitus (a ringing, roaring, or hissing sound in one or both ears) may also occur.

There are many strategies to help people with Presbycusis. Hearing aids may be recommended for some individuals. Assistive listening devices can provide further improvement in hearing ability in certain situations. One example of such a device is the built-in telephone amplifier. Another example is FM systems that can make sound clearer, with or without a hearing aid, by delivering sound waves like a radio. Training in speech reading (using visual cues to determine what is being spoken) can help those with Presbycusis to understand better what is being said in conversations or presentations.

Solving The Problem No One Wants to Talk About

freedomwand-toilet-tissue-aid_260June 9, 2006 is the day my life changed forever when a car accident left me with a broken back.

There’s an aspect of debilitating injuries that isn’t publicly discussed: Personal hygiene. I was humiliated and frustrated as others tended to my personal needs and cleanliness, and I was dismayed when my occupational therapist told me there were few products on the market that could help me.

So I created the FreedomWand®. Now almost everyone can attend to their own hygiene.

The FreedomWand®’s “grippers” securely hold toilet paper. It is adjustable and can be used as short as 7 inches or as long as 25 inches, and it can be carried discreetly, because it collapses and comes with a cloth carry bag.

Besides using it in the toilet, there are other uses for the FreedomWand®. Insert a loofa or washcloth and washing those hard-to-reach places isn’t difficult. Insert a disposable razor and a clean-shaven face, legs, or underarms are easy to achieve. And by inserting a cotton ball or small make-up sponge, applying ointment to the toes, hips, knees or back is simple.

I’ve heard from many people who have several FreedomWand®s; one in each bathroom, and one for “on-the-go.” (Pardon the pun.) And users tell me of other situations in which the FreedomWand® has been helpful.

“FreedomWand® is nothing short of a true blessing. I can now actually go out and not have to worry about my personal hygiene. Your product has opened so many doors for me that I had lost a long time ago.” ~ John
I’m so glad I’m able to help others regain their freedom and dignity with the FreedomWand®.

Assistive Technology For Low Vision

Perhaps you or a loved one has just learned that you have Age-related Macular Degeneration or AMD. So what is AMD? AMD is a common eye condition that is the leading cause of vision loss in people aged 60 and over. It causes damage to a small spot near the center of the eye called the Macula. The macula is located on the eye’s retina and is used to see objects in sharp focus.
AMD does not lead to complete blindness by itself. However, it can lead to a significant loss of central vision. Therefore, AMD can interfere with simple everyday activities such as driving, reading, writing or your ability to do close work.

The degeneration typically advances slowly, so you may not have been aware of its effects. As AMD progresses, a blurred area near the center of the eye is common. In time the blurred area will likely grow larger or you may develop blank spots in your central vision. There are two types of AMD: Geographic Atrophy, which is a gradual breakdown of light sensitive cells and Neovascular AMD which is caused by the abnormal growth of blood vessels underneath the retina.

Currently there are no cures for AMD, but there are activities and supplements which may slow its progress. Researchers have found that by avoiding smoking, getting regular exercise and eating nutritious foods such green leafy vegetables and fish can be helpful. In addition some studies have shown that certain high dose vitamins and minerals may slow the disease’s progression. (Source: National Eye Institute).
Our Bierley Maggie MD Portable Video Magnifier can be helpful with its white text on a black background for reading. It removes the glare when reading restaurant menus, prescriptions or other fine print.

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month!

Support Parkinson's Research this April - give to the Muhammad Ali Parkinson's Center at ActiveForever.com

Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder of the central nervous system that can impair a person’s motor skills, speech, and other mobility functions. Symptoms may include tremors (shaking), slowness of movement, difficulty with balance, loss of coordination, speech changes, and rigidity (stiffness) of muscles and limbs. In the more advanced stages of Parkinson’s disease, the person may experience a temporary, involuntary inability to move called a freezing episode.

There are now accepted methods to combat freezing episodes – using motor stability exercise and life-changing devices that help overcome the symptoms on a daily basis. Active Forever offers several products designed specifically to help break freezing episodes, including the U Step Walker Advanced Walking Aid, the U Step 2 Walker Laser Light, and the Laser Cane.
