Handy items for people with stiff and painful joints – better designs than ever
Back pain relief
Relieve back and neck pain and tension with a Posture Key Two Piece Massage Device. One section is for the lower back and the other for behind your neck, allowing the silicone spheres to gently massage these key areas. The spheres vary in height to allow your body to adjust naturally in the areas it needs it most, stimulating, stretching and decompressing tissue.

Treat your feet
Revive tired feet with a long soak in a Bosign Inflatable Foot Bath. Unique soft pads in the bottom of the bath ensure it is extra comfortable, while the air in the walls of the bath insulates and stores heat for longer. Foot baths are usually made of hard plastic, but the Bosign Inflatable Foot Bath is manufactured from soft pliable plastic, soothing for legs and feet.
