Our Experience

The NextSling® is the all-in-one backpack shoulder sling designed by medical experts to immobilize the shoulder, eliminate the strain on the neck, and distribute the weight of an injured limb for improved patient recovery, rehabilitation, comfort, and ease of use. Due to the innovative design of the NextSling, particularly the ability to immobilize the shoulder and eliminate the strain on the neck, patients can perform exercises earlier in the rehabilitation process than with other slings, while still taking the necessary precautions, thus getting back to the things they love quicker! How easy is the NextSling to use; simply slip it over your head, adjust, and start recovering.
“The NextSling has changed the way I think about rehab and recovery. I was in constant pain with my initial sling because no matter what I did, I could not keep my shoulder still and had constant neck strain. Two days after surgery, I switched to the NextSling and my pain was immediately relieved and I was able to sleep better. The NextSling ensured my shoulder was still, eliminated the strain on my neck, and made me all around more comfortable. I wholeheartedly believe that I owe much of my initial rehab success to the NextSling.
With everything that goes into shoulder surgery, I can’t believe how much impact and improvement a shoulder sling can make. Thank you so much NextSling for creating a product that improves patients’ lives and for providing unmatched customer service.” ~ Debra B., Patient

VibraCool® instantly relieves pain by activating the body’s natural nerve-blocking response. This physiological reaction is called Gate Control. Vibration increases blood flow which stimulates healing. By reducing pain and decreasing healing times, VibraCool® gets you back in the game faster. While ice decreases pain and inflammation, it can also decrease blood flow and stiffen muscles. Adding massage improves blood flow, enhancing the removal of lactic acid, cytokines and injured tissue, while vibrational massage reduces pain and loosens stiff muscles. The gate control theory is the basis for the design of VibraCool®.
“My daughter in law, an RN who works in a clinic in a ski town, had an MRI of her knee that documented an MCL strain and mild meniscus tear. She is still using the device (3 weeks now) and reports that it is fantastic for pain relief. She relates the same findings that I had noted: convenience, works in a shorter time than ice alone, and there is something about the vibration that adds to pain relief. I can feel comfortable reporting that you have a great idea and I can highly recommend it.” ~ Dr. David Hannaford, DPM

“Buzzy® has been super helpful with my kids (I have 7)! From shots to blood draws, he is always there to distract and soothe. I am a Clinical Nurse Specialist for Women and Children and brought a Buzzy® for our unit. I would love to get Buzzy® into the offices of our pediatricians! Having one there would certainly build the case for having more! One of the best inventions for kids EVER!” ~ Julie K.

The idea behind the Father Time brand came from a fundamental belief that two areas in life could use some help: food and families. We believe that the food we consume needs to be more pure and real, resembling meals from a home kitchen rather than an industrial factory, and made using organic, premium, whole, and non-GMO ingredients. We also believe that our hectic family lives can be more simple and real, focused on the biggest priorities of life and authentic family relationships rather than the constant, fleeting distractions that prevent us from being the people we were destined to become. So we started Father Time Bread, which exists to make good things happen for families through food and fun.
“Best bread I’ve ever tasted. I still remember the first time I had this bread. I looked at my wife and we both said “this is the best bread I’ve ever tasted. It still is…it’s seriously unreal how amazing it is.” ~ Doug

AXIO Centripetal Training is a functional stability trainer that integratively improves strength, conditioning, balance, rhythm, and coordination. AXIO simultaneously increases strength and dynamic stability, enhancing proprioception and our ability to modulate force. This leads to better functional stability, athletic performance and decreased risk of injury. Developed for rehabilitation and enhanced for athletic training and fitness, the system’s smart, rugged design combines the gravitational resistance of free weight with internal rotational resistance. Simply change AXIO grip, orientation, body position and movements to target different areas and vary the level of difficulty. You feel it working immediately and it is great for individual and group training.
“I’m a walking testimony. This works! I love using AXIO to progress an exercise. I’ve had a problem with shoulder stability when lifting heavier weights for years. Since I started using the AXIO I’ve seen huge improvement.” ~ Devon N., Personal Trainer

Most fitness products start with an idea, and the inventor searches for applications to use the product. What sets the TherRex™ Balance Board apart, is that we recognized problems with current balance boards and developed the TherRex™ Board: a superior product that addresses the very problems we observed. Each feature of the TherRex™ Balance Board was meticulously created through the application of a doctoral-level education in Physical Therapy and research from peer-reviewed articles. In addition to this, the product went through multiple, rigorous phases of prototyping before it was allowed to be put into your hands and under your feet. The team behind the TherRex™ Balance Board, TherRex™ Innovations, is a veteran-owned business.
“This is like a BOSU ball, but better and safer. I like the handle features and edges under the board to protect fingers. It’s a great tool for functional strength and balance exercises.” ~ Jessica S. PT, MPT

The SlingSlip® is the innovative storage and fashion accessory that transforms your shoulder sling into a stylish and convenient interior storage option for your phone, keys, and other items. It is wearable with a wide variety of shoulder slings and can replace a purse or carrying bag. It can be customized with different styles and customer logos.
“I had two shoulder replacement surgeries, one on each shoulder, by Dr. E. Bieber. After the first (November 18, 2016) I was issued a standard sling. Just prior to the second surgery, (July 14, 2017), I was delighted to be fitted for my NextSling. Very cool! As a former backpacker, I instantly was drawn to the aesthetic of the clips that “click” into place and that secured my arm and stabilized my shoulder. I found it to be comfortable and felt that my shoulder was snugly in place, a feeling that made me feel safe and confident.
The NextSling is complimented by the SlingSlip, which has two added features: 1) it temporarily can replace your purse! I carried my travel wallet and keys in the SlingSlip, and 2) it provides a colorful stylish slip that adorns the sling!” ~ Carol M., Patient
