The term, "resistance training" is sometimes very confusing. It has been interpreted and applies to everything from pure weight training, which uses gravity as the primary resistance to band-based machines that mimic weight training without the weight load. To make the idea of resistance training as easy as possible, think of it as nothing more than gradual strength training that incorporates a full range of motion without specifically targeting any one muscle. To do it right, you need a tool that targets the grey area between weight training and resistance machines. That's where you can find Tension Toner, an innovative and ironically lightweight resistance-training tool that makes the most of [...]

Anyone can mix up a rum and Coke; it is almost a no-brainer.

We are the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe. Finding clean air is not always easy and pollutants can come from anywhere, lowering air quality even within our own homes. TZOA is here to help. TZOA is a wearable air quality monitor that uses an internal optical laser and an array of five different sensors to measure particulates in the environment. The information it collects is sent by Bluetooth to a paired smartphone application that tracks air quality in real time. The application provides a visual indication of the air quality, maintains a daily log of exposure to review later and even connects to [...]

Power wheelchairs usually have a suspension system to counter the weight of the chair. As it turns out, most manual chairs do not, and that was the inspiration behind QuadshoX. QuadshoX is a rear-wheel suspension system for manual wheelchairs that removes the constant jarring for the person using it. The system is a retrofit to the chair so it will not affect the wheelchair manufacturer's warranty and is also easy enough to install so that any caregiver or distributor representative can perform the upgrade. Once installed, the system transfers the inadequate suspension that depended on the wheel to absorb shock to the QuadshoX, resulting in a very smooth ride for [...]
