karen,
It is a hard plastic cane with all sorts of funny knobs on it, intended to reach all sorts of funny tender places.

I need to find a special place to put all of these 'goodies." I have some of them but they are in varying places...I need my fibro help drawer!!!

Karen, on page two Jackie I think it was listed a link to the teracare. I already have it in my favorites list.
This thread has so many great ideas. I forgot some of these things I had put in back of my closet and never used. I'm pulling them out again for a second try. Some I'm going to go and order. I don't go out and shop much anymore. Takes to much energy that I would rather spend on other things. So one of my favorite things I guess would be my laptop,again. With my laptop tray. I have one of by rice bags I made on my back right now that I put in microwave. Works great. Husband went to flea market and got one of those really great moist heat heating pads that the chiroprators have in their offices..you know the ones that go all the way down your back and you hold the control in your hand to turn on or off? I love that thing, he paid $5 for it. I paid $35 for a little one at drugstore that won't even cover my back.
I also have pillows called ComforTemp. Says climate control material. Well to me its just blue jel in the pillow but is a cool pillow to sleep on in summer. Stays cool at night for when you sweat? Anyway I sweat a lot at night or did. It is sort of semi hard but keeps its shap. I bought it thru Overstock.com if anyone interested. I've seen some similar advertised at the department stores here.

Re stools!

I've tracked down a web-site for them - www.gelert.com

They are a UK based firm and appear only to supply to UK, but I could be wrong

If you type in 'stools' in serch box you will fing some small tripod stools. Howver they don't show the 'long-legged' stick one I bought - maybe new product,

They also show stockists in yr area.

I bought mine from large Boots that has a 'living well' area.

Hope this info is of use to you.

(And, Karen, if you manage to track one down - please be v careful - we don't want you doing a 'Jackie' cheesy)

Karen and al UK folks interested in purchasing a Theracane:

Try www.posturite.co.uk

search in 'all products' and you should find one

(however it might be cheaper to get one flown over from manufacturers in US)

Hello,
My most useful items are tennis balls. I put one tennis ball in the leg of a pair of panty hose. Stand with the ball between you and the wall. Use the ball to rub out the bad spots and use the panty hose(over your shoulder works best) to reposition the ball.

A physical therapist told me to duct tape two tennis balls together and roll on them on the floor or wall. This works for the back, buttocks, and thighs. You can roll up and down on them or remain on sore spots for as long as you like.

Have a hopeful day smiley

It's not really equipment, but i always have to have my Salonpas. They are little patches of stuff similar to ben-gay, that you just stick on to your painful areas. No messy creams or anything. I just slap them on where i'm hurting and can leave them on for about 8 hours. I always have them in my purse and at work. love em!

my most useful peice of equipment was the hot tub... except we moved it into our bedroom when we were building it; then we realized we didn't need all that chlorine in there, so have stopped using it!

so now my old but not quite deep enough bathtub has to make do...

Does anyone know anything about these new ways to 'shock' that supposedly don't use any chlorine? I've had a heck of a time finding out locally. ..

I too love the salon pas--think they are a great piece of equipment & very inexpensive as well.

Try colloidal silver for killing bacteria in pools--but one must watch the water temp when putting it in. They make it just for pools. Great stuff!! Very safe when done correctly.
