New FDA Approved Diabetes Risk Assessment Kit
BIOSAFE Laboratories has introduced the first and only FDA-approved consumer test kit to evaluate diabetes risk. The Diabetes Risk Assessment (DRA) is comprised of an immediate fasting glucose reading and a mail-in laboratory analysis for hemoglobin A1c. Samples for both tests can be either professionally or self-collected through the use of a simple finger-nick collection kit. Taken in combination, these two results become a convenient, reliable and inexpensive indicator of diabetes or a pre-diabetes condition.
The BIOSAFE Diabetes Risk Assessment is a common-sense approach to early detection of a potentially dangerous condition. The DRA will increase office revenue while providing a quality added value service to patients.
BIOSAFE Laboratories, Inc., is a leader in the development of micro blood sample testing technology. The DRA is distributed in the U.S. by Glycemion, Inc. For more information on the DRA or other BIOSAFE products, call Konstantine Haralampopoulos at 1-847-234-8111, Ext. 127, or email [email protected].

Give Kids the Support They Need with Ultra Young Soles®
Proper postural support isn’t just for adults. It’s important to give kids the support they need with Foot Levelers’ Ultra Young Soles® Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers. They are designed to help children’s feet stay healthy and posturally stable between the ages of five and twelve.
Ultra Young Soles conservatively protect and support normal arch development in the feet of children. They feature our patented Gait Cycle System® for comfort, support, and protection with every step. The Gait Cycle System contains Zorbacel® in the heel to absorb damaging heel-strike shoc, a StanceGuard™ for full weight-bearing support during midstance, and Propacel™ in the forefoot to provide a propulsive boost at toe-off and reduce fatigue. Ultra Young Soles have a cushioning TechCel™ top and bottom for extra comfort and shock absorption.
Kids grow fast between the ages of five and twelve; that’s why Ultra Young Soles also include the Posture Protect Program. It offers a discount for when the growing child needs a new pair of Ultra Young Soles until he or she turns twelve. After that age, children can graduate into adult Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers.
For more information about Ultra Young Soles, call toll free 1-800-553-4860 (USA), 1-800-344-4860 (CAN), or visit online FootLevelers.com.
Pain Management M.D.s Find New Chiropractic Technique Better Than Narcotic Pain Meds, In Some Patients!
Pain Neutralization Technique™ (P.N.T.) eliminates pain, often permanently, by using neuromuscular reflexes. “P.N.T. stopped almost all pain in a patient following ankle surgery. Hydrocodone had only helped a little. P.N.T. also eliminated pain much better than narcotics for 2 other patients admitted to the urgent care center. I was amazed when it abolished all knee pain in a patient with severe osteoarthritis”, said Jawad Bhatti, M.D., pain management specialist. “I had a patient walk in on crutches and walk out without them. I’ve had 2 patients receiving lumbar corticosteroid epidural injections for whom P.N.T. worked better. One was on disability for 3 months and went back to work”, said Elliot Rampulla, M.D., diplomat in Pain Management and Anesthesiology.

Thera-Band® Stability Trainer Proven to Decrease Ankle Injuries in Young Athletes
A recent study co-authored by a physical therapist, high school athletic trainer and member of the Thera-Band Research Advisory Committee concludes that athletes who perform balance training using the Thera-Band® foam Stability Trainer can reduce the risk of noncontact inversion ankle sprains, particularly those associated with high school football players with a high body mass index and previous ankle sprain.
Timothy Tyler, MS, PT, ATC, co-authored the study, entitled “The Effectiveness of a Balance Training Intervention in Reducing the Incidence of Noncontact Ankle Sprains in High School Football Players,” which was published in the August edition of the American Journal of Sports Medicine.
Tyler and colleagues observed 125 high school varsity football players from two teams over a period of three seasons each as they incorporated single-limb balance training using a (blue) Thera-Band® Stability Trainer. The players were selected and grouped based on their risk level (low, moderate or high) for ankle sprains as a result of body mass index and previous ankle injuries.
Before stability trainer intervention, non-contact inversion sprains—defined in the article as “an ankle injury with an inversion mechanism requiring the player to miss at least one game or practice”—was 0.4 injuries per 1,000 exposures for minimal-risk players, 1.2 for low-risk players, 1.9 for moderate-risk players, and 5.7 for high-risk players.
However, after intervention, injury incidence decreased to 0.8 injuries per 1,000 exposures for minimal-risk players and 0.4, 0.6 and 1.4, respectively, for low-, moderate- and high-risk players. Combined, the post-intervention results represented an overall 77 percent reduction in injury incidents, the study concluded.
