The Human Body from a Single Cell

From a Single Cell

It’s hard to believe a human being starts as a single cell. The cell is fertilized and is then called a zygote, which divides and develops into groups of cells. The average adult body contains about 75 trillion cells.

Cells group together to form either nerve, connective, epithelial or muscle tissue. Tissues that work together form organs and organs that work together form organ systems such as the nervous or digestive system.

The human body works by itself; the heart beats automatically, you breathe automatically, digestion occurs without you knowing how.

Yes, it is hard to believe a human being started from 1 cell!

Bucketseat Sitback Rest is a backrest, back support shaped to fit snugly against bucket car seats to maximize comfort and provide lumbar support while driving.

Core Product’s NEW Mesh Sitback Rest is a great back support that conforms to the body for uniform support. Made of a mesh material, it keeps you cool and comfortable.

Independent Living Aids (with some Arthritis Aids thrown in) –

Talking Big Button Calculator – This calculator is perfect for the handicapped as it offers a large 8 digit LCD readout, numbers that are 5/8″ high and the talking feature has a built-in volume control.

UBend-It Spoon – This spoon is an eating aid for people with upper extremity weakness or reduced range of motion. Our spoon has a twist in the shaft that allows it to be easily hand-bent to either side.

Security Pole with Curved Grab Bar – This security pole is a assistive device that can help you stand up or sit down. It is tension mounted floor to ceiling and has a pivoting curved grab bar that locks in place every 45 degrees.

Carex Raised Toilet Seat – Our molded, unbreakable, white polyethylene, raised toilet seat raises you 5.25” inches, has a comfortable contour seat and convenient handgrips.

Incontinence Products

Lady Dignity Panty and Sir Dignity Brief for adult incontinence – Both of these briefs are washable, poly-cotton and have a patented ‘Stretch-lock’ pouch that holds an absorbent pad or liner securely in place.

Dignity Plus Super Absorbent Liners –  These incontinence pads provide users with moderate to heavy incontinence protection. They absorb up to 9 oz., have a wide adhesive strip and can be used in both the Lady Dignity Panty, Sir Dignity Brief or your own undergarments.

Dignity Premium Disposable Underwear – These cloth-like feel, disposable underwear fit both men and women and are for moderate to heavy adult incontinence. They have a stretchy panel with pull-open sides and feel like regular underwear.

Massage Products

Free-Up Massage Cream – This massage cream was created by a physical therapist to meet the needs of professional massage therapists for surface or deep tissue massage. It costs less than 50 cents for a full body massage to use because of its slow absorption rate.

Myossage Lotion and Ultra-Myossage Lotion – A superior massage lotion as it does not get tacky allowing for a smooth massage. Ultra-Myossage has Aloe Vera added.

The Relief Shop – Home medical supplies, disability aids, assistive devices and independent living aids, durable medical equipment and pain relief products.
