Published in Health and Beauty by mfereday on Jan 19, 2013
While it is a part of out body that is used on a regular basis, it sometimes does not get the attention it deserves. Just how clean are your teeth?
To me this is my discovery of the year. One of the items I saw during the ĎXmas In Julyí round of events and if anyone is interested its top of my wish list for Christmas this year. It gave me lots of good workouts during its testing.

Desk or Bladeless Fans

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Sep 9, 2012
Two more items from Brando in Hong Kong. Who have a huge range of fans available. The first is described as a Desktop Fan and the second as a Bladeless Fan something I have only seen previously from Dyson in a high priced unit.

Sitting in front of a computer is not the best way to get and keep fit. Maybe modern technology can provide a way to improve this situation.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Jul 25, 2012
Mio have produced a GPS unit for cyclists rather than motorists, so now we non motorists have a unit that can more normally cope with day to day than trying to adapt a unit designed primarily for the car and lorry driver.

Published in Health and Beauty by adrianmorant on Jul 2, 2012
Without the subtitle Real Science, Great Nutrition, and Good Health to Bruce W Perryís book Fitness for Geeks I would not have even bothered to look at this most interesting book. It is not just for the fitness fanatic, it is also worth reading by anyone -- even a couch potato -- who is interested in getting or keeping healthy.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on June 3, 2012
Strangely enough I saw this at a launch last year, at the same event the large Kitchen Machine was shown and as that became available first it was reviewed first. Here this little device is for anyone who chops and slices.

655203 Philips Avance HR1871 Whole Fruit JuicePhilips Juicer HR1871

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Jan 30, 2012
Anyone who tends to want fresh juice really should have a juicer as they tend to get far more from items than the manual alternative. This unit claims to get 10% more juice out than other such products; I have tested this over Christmas.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Dec 11, 2011
My first thought was good breathe but then everyone would think about the mouth and teeth and keeping them clean. These two products help you to breathe better first one for Asthma and second one to benefit others.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Dec 5, 2011
If you own an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad then this app together with the headband and software can tell you how well you are sleeping. I am perhaps not the best to review this as my sleep patterns are to say the least erratic.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Nov 30, 2011
Itís been a while since I have reviewed anything from Philips; I think the last thing was their Sonicare Electric Toothbrush. Here I am looking at their latest battery operated shaver although it is far more than a simple shaver.
Two items for home use although the second could have uses almost anywhere. First a Blood Pressure Cuff for all those who need to keep regular checks. The second is a USB temperature sensor that works and reports it.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Jan 3, 2011
A name does not always help in explaining a product. This item massages the shoulders and gives massage and heat relief to the lower back, either can be used individually or together however I cannot agree with the Ďall purposeí part of the name.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Dec 26, 2010
While these scales do tell your weight they also tell you your fat mass and even your body mass index. Unlike the only other device I have seen that did all this that cost into four figures this one only just creeps into three.

Just over a year ago I told you about my foray into buying a pair of boots by mail order. Yes I know itís a man thing as most women I know delight in trying on every pair in the shop before buying the first they tried on anyway.

Christmas is on the way - and if you need a gift idea for a man in your life then you might want to take a look at the WAHL Deluxe Gift Set. That is if the man in question takes his grooming seriously!
For those of you who need to get up before dawn during these winter months, the Lumie Bodyclock will wake you up gently with a simulated dawn experience and an alarm.

622984 oregan scientific rainbow clocWellness from Oregon

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Oct 25, 2010
Two items from Oregon Scientific one firmly in their Wellness range and other for relaxation so this loosely fits in. First a Heart Rate monitor that does far more than just check the rate. Second a Soothing Sounds clock that can also be used to play from an MP3 of iPod.
Although there have been bearded times in my life, like many men shaving is an integral part of my daily routine so I'm always keen to try the latest technology in this area!

Do you want to lost weight, gain weight or just maintain your current weight? This small device can help you to obtain your targets if they be daily, weekly or some other measurement. I tried it for ten day recently.

Long Term Cures!

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Apr 4, 2010
Certain things make a claim that can be easily verified, others take longer. Certain claims may be initially true others may take time to prove. Then again some may never be proven/disproven even after a long trial period.
