bionicare hand device

One of the downsides of continuously increasing our lifespans is the aches and pains associated with the aging process, specifically the rheumatoid arthritis that can stop a snarky writer dead in his/her tracks. Well there is now another solution on the market for arthritic patients, Bionicare Medical Technologies' RA Hand Device, which the company claims is "the first and only non-drug, non-invasive option cleared by the FDA." The system consists of the conductive glove and arm band (plus electrode gel), wired signal generator, and 2 military-like shirts for wire management, and was found to improve patient-reported pain levels in a double-blind placebo-controlled study. Luckily for you, dear reader, wearing these gloves, along with switching to the Prestigio anti-glare LCDs we brought you yesterday, should allow us to continue bringing you our subversive take on all things gadgety well into our 90's.
