Reviewing the Gyenno Spoon for People With Parkinson’s Disease

Genuine Review of the Gyenno Parkinson’s Spoon

We have already looked at how PD patients can better their lives with compression vests that lower their anxiety levels. In today’s post, we will be looking at one of the most bought products by Parkinson’s patients; it is the smart spoon by Gyenno that has been said to be effective in lowering the hand tremors by 85%.

The Gyenno spoon has been said to be a great invention that has truly improved the lives of Parkinson’s patients.

Contents that Come to You when you buy this spoon

When you buy the Gyenno spoon from Amazon, expect the following to be delivered to you:

  • 1 Gyenno spoon
  • An intelligent hand shank
  • Charging cable and one charging box
  • A packing box

How to test whether you need to use Gyenno Spoon for Parkinson’s tremors

Not everyone with PD is suitable to use the gyenno dining spoon. If your tremors are just too much, then you might have to look for a caregiver to feed you. These spoons are not meant for people whose Parkinson’s disease has progressed so much as to lower their hand dexterity much.

So, we learn how you can test whether your patient will be viable to use the gyenno spoon.

  1. Take a white A4 paper
  2. Cut out a square box at the centre of the A4 sized paper measuring 7 inches by 7 inches. You will use a ruler and pair of scissors to do this.
  3. Hold out the A4 paper infront of the patient.
  4. Ask them to hold a pen and place it at the centre of the cut out paper.

If the tremors are so much as to have the person touching the edges of the 7 by 7 inches square, then their shaking is too much

If the person has tremors but does not touch the edges of the square with the pen, then they are good enough to use the gyenno anti-shake spoon.

What we loved about the Gyenno Spoon

  1. The spoon offsets 85% of your tremors thereby stabilizing your hand so that you do not have to tremor so much.
  2. It is made with Tritan safe materials and therefore the patient does not need to feel anxious while feeding with this spoon.
  3. The battery is sustainable and you can use it for two meals. It runs for a total of 180 minutes which would be sufficient to eat two or three meals even for the slowest of eaters.
  4. It has high temperature resistance and so you do not have to worry that your spoon might get destroyed while eating hot soup.

What I did not like about the Gyenno Parkinson’s spoon

  1. It was premium priced with the cost going for as much as $189 which is too high for some poor people who are battling with PD and on top of buying such utensils, they also have to buy levodopa, sinemet medications, think of going through DBS operations and get adaptive clothing to improve their lives.

I would rather advise my readers to check out other cheaper alternatives of  anti-shake spoons on Hosiped if they feel that the Gyenno spoon is rather too expensive

Do Compression Vests work for Autistic and Parkinson’s Patients?

Compression Vests Help you feel Relaxed and Less Anxious

There is always one unanswered question among people with  Parkinson’s disease (PD) and autism. So they ask, ” Do compression vests work?”

While I was researching for adaptive clothing for Parkinson’s patients, I found out some articles claiming that compression vests would help people suffering from anxiety. You see one of the most common symptom affecting Parkinson’s patients is anxiety. Neurologists say that once the dopamine producing neurons stop doing so, there is a chemical alteration in the brain that causes the patients to start getting anxious, stressed as well as depressed. This also affects their sleep patterns where they are likely to spend the whole night not feeling sleepy(insomnia) as well as tendency to feel sleepy during the day.

Do Compression Vests Work According to Research

Now research on the effectiveness of compression and weighted vests show that they are good in making the wearer feel calm and relaxed. It is as though someone is giving you a big, warm bear hug and this gets you relaxed and feeling loved and cared for. Parents who have autistic and ADHD kids have been doing this for a long time where they get them some weighted jackets as well as weighted lap pads that make the kid concentrate and stop being fidgety in class. In Germany for example, parents have been buying these weighted jackets filled with sand to their sensory processing disorder kids and the results have been amazing. My question then was that if the garments were working for kids, would they as well work for adults.

And the best way would be to try them out. So, I had this patient who had been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for four years. He had serious tremors and was at most times anxious because of the disease. So, I wanted to test whether the weighted compression vests would work for this case to make the patient calm as well as feel relaxed. Before this, I had tried medications but you will find that PD medications usually take time before they kick in. Levodopa for example will take sometime before its effect can be seen in the body. We call this on and off moments when on is when the drug has kicked in and ‘off’ is when it is has not taken effect.

So how did the compression vest perform

I was awed trying the Harkla compression vest on my PD patient. At first the patient complained that it was way too heavy for them and seemed very apprehensive to try it out which made me more worried wondering how it would help make the patient relaxed yet here they were apprehensive about trying the jacket out.

But I convinced the old man telling him that it would help him feel calm. Now if there was one thing that this old man was hating about PD is that he felt worried and anxious almost all the time but especially at night time when everyone was asleep and he could not sleep a wink. His legs would feel restless, he would act out in his dreams and he always said that he had so many nightmares. So telling him that the jacket would make him relaxed was all the convicing that he needed. He bought the idea and we went on try it on him but on the promise that he would ditch it if it did not help things.

I am so glad that we tried it out. The guy started recording immediate signs of change. He looked more relaxed and less anxious. He was also able to battle his insomnia and in no time, he was sleeping like a baby; soundly and peacefully.

Parkinson’s Patient Reactions to the weighted jacket

He appeared more happier and when I asked him how he felt, this is what he had to say:

I love the weighted jacket. Though heavy when starting out, I found out that it is very relaxing. It feels as though someone is giving me a warm hug and with me through my Parkinson’s journey to comfort me. I now sleep better and my nightmares are less when wearing the jacket. It is time now I also thought of the anxiety weighted blankets that are equally helpful.

8 Reasons why Golf is the Best Game in the World

Some people may mistake golf as a boring game but it is a remarkable sport by all measures. Football or basketball fans may defend their game as the coolest game in the world but the reason they hold this view is because they have not tried to play golf which is the best sport in the world. The article explores 8 distinctive features that you can find while playing golf and you may not be able to find these features anywhere else.

Reasons why Golf is the Best Game in the Globe

  1. The freedom to eat and drink while playing

When you’re playing football, you cannot stop and have a meal or some good drink while you take a decent drink. In golf, you can walk down the course while eating an apple or some packed meal in a container. It is also possible to take coffee or beer while you’re playing your game which is impossible to do while playing other games.

  1. Versatility

The sport is versatile and you can play the game solo or with up to 3 of their mates at a particular time. This makes the game interesting as there are no rules like football where you must play only 11 for each side. It is possible for you just to grab your cheap golf bag and play the game alone.

3.You can battle with any player regardless of their abilities

The handicap structure enables players with different capabilities to compete with each other on a level playing course. It is possible for you to compete with a professional fairly. It is difficult for other sports such as boxing to compete with a person who you differ in abilities.

  1. Does not have an age limit

There is no specific age when you should start or retire from the game. For instance, Tiger Woods stated to play the game when he was only 2 years old while the globe’s oldest golfer is about 103 years. Golf is played by people of diverse ages which is uncommon in many other sports.

  1. No limit to the Holes that you want to play

The standard complete golf game is about 18 holes or nine if you want to play less. If you feel ambitious and you want to play the game, you can even do 100 holes as long as you wake up early enough to cover the course.

  1. Professionally, Golf careers are longer compares to other sports

Most footballers would retire when they’re on their late 30’s. If that was the case, Tom Watson would have retired decades ago, yet at the age of 59, he missed narrowly from winning the converted Open Championship at Turnberry.

  1. No round of Golf is Similar

I have been asked many times by friends and families if I never get tired playing a similar course over and over again. The course will never be the same because the company and the condition of play is never the same. Every day and every single round of golf is diverse and that’s the reason we would came back for more rounds and enjoy the great game.

  1. Exercise with low injury

Golfing helps you to exercise and burn calories. The game does not involve physical contact and it is hard to get injured while you’re playing the game unlike American Football or even rugby. Thus, you get to carry your stylish golf bag and exercise while you keep your chances of being injured as low as possible.

Final Thought

The reasons given in this article clearly shows that golf is the best game in the world. Besides all the reasons stated here, the game is easy to learn and with practice you can easily become a professional. I would encourage people to learn the game and enjoy the health and social benefits that come with golfing.



What are the risks of using heated mattress pads?

Many claims have been made on the dangers of heated mattress pads which are used by most people, especially patients at the hospice to get warmth during the cold seasons. While some have truth, others are totally baseless and should not be trusted. In this article, we will look at some of the claims and using studies and research done, we will conclude whether they are baseless or true.

  1. Heated mattress pads will cause breast cancer

Claims have been made that electric and magnetic waves from heated mattress pads can cause breast cancer. While studies have revealed that the pads do indeed produce EMFs, there are no substantive conclusions to show that indeed those EMFs are responsible for breast cancer.

Using the pads cannot therefore be said to fully cause cancer. There could be other factors at play.

2. Heated pads and blankets will cause impotency

It is true that using heated pads can cause impotency. A man’s body requires low temperature around the groin for spermatogenesis to take place. With heated mattress pads, the balls are on fire and this heat is just too much to allow for the synthesis of sperms.

3. They can cause fires

Rolling and keeping the blankets in a crumbled way has been shown to be a potential fire breakout threat.

4. They are not good for diabetic patients

Diabetic patients will not know when the heat is too much for their bodies since they are most times numb. This way, they could get burnt without noticing since their nerve system is dead.

5. Not good for kids

Not all kids should sleep under heated mattress pads because of burns.

6. Washing with water can cause electrocution

Anything can go wrong when you wash the pads with water and it does not fully dry.


Using heated mattress pads is not such a bane as claimed and you can use them for patients on your best hospital bed for home use.

The Best 3 rated abdominal exercise equipment in 2018

Abs. We all want them chiseled and well shaped, right?

However, this is just but a dream to many people who have love handles are ever wondering how they can get better abs. Well in this article, I will talk about the best rated abdominal exercise equipment on amazon as I discovered them in a blog that I was going through.

Best Ab Workout Machines

  1. Swiss ball

The swiss ball or stability ball is very popular among women who are looking to those those obliques. It involves sitting as well as other exercises such as wall squats, press ups among others.

It comes with a pump so that you are able to inflate it with ease. Choose one that does not have an odor because I have found out that some have bad PVC smell that can make you nauseous.

You should also look for one that is anti-skid such that when you start exercising with it, it does not move about but hold in one position.

There are those that are substandard made with bad material and could burst after a very short period of time.

2. Bench press

The bench press is one of the most versatile gym equipment. With it you will be able to do all sorts of exercises that involve the abs.

It should be ergonomic, accomodate your height as well as be very durable. You do not want one that will have its parts snap away after few days of use.

I like those with cushion knee pads so that when you sit on them you do not hurt your knees. And who wants to hurt theirs anyway.

3. Kettlebells

The kettlebell is just like a dumb bell but the difference is the way it is shaped. Suited for abs, the kettle bell exercises involve lifting around your handles so that they can become less and less and finally fade away.


Hospital Bed Entrapment and How to Prevent it

Bed entrapment is where a patient on a hospital bed gets stuck. Toddlers are also susceptible to bed entrapment. Studies show that patients who are highly likely to get entrapped include:

  1. Those suffering from dementia
  2. Those who are easily agitated
  3. Those who like doing things on their own without calling for help

The FDA has already listed entrapment as risky for most patients on these beds. It has therefore given out recommendations to bed manufacturers, home care givers and anyone near the ailing patient on preventing these hazards.

Recommendations to bed manufacturers

In their report, the FDA called to bed manufacturers to exercise caution and due diligence so as to prevent injuries and deaths on the patients who bought their hospital beds. Rails for example should not be made big enough that one can get stuck there.

Recommendations to home care givers

Home care givers were asked to check whether their patients needed bed side rails or not. If a patient can be able to take themselves to the toilet and back to bed without help, then they do not need side rails. The only thing you might require in such a case are bedside mats so that the patient would not get injured incase they fall at night.

Patients who easily get agitated or suffer from mental health should be checked regularly just in case they start wandering on their own or want to get out of bed without assistance since they are possible candidates of bed entrapment.

Types of bed entrapment

There are seven zones of bed entrapment

Zone 1 Within the bed rails
Zone 2 Under the rails next to one rail
Zone 3 Between rail and mattress
Zone 4 Under rail and end of rails
Zone 5 Between the split bed rails
Zone 6 Between end of rail and head/foot board
Zone 7 Between edge of mattress and head/foot board

We have pointed out that bed rails can be dangerous in causing bed entrapment. So should one ditch that bed rail that they were using for their elderly since it might cause bed entrapment? My answer is a simple No. Why? Because bed rails are themselves great in protecting your patient from falls.

Therefore the only way to prevent these falls as well as prevent entrapment is to install bed bumpers and make sure that the space between the rails is not big enough for the patient to fit in.

Preventive Mechanisms for each of the bed entrapment zones

Zone 1 Use a posey padded side rail protector
Zone 2 Use bed bumpers
Zone 3 Use bed bumpers
Zone 4 Use bed bumpers
Zone 5 Use full rails
Zone 6 Use a mattress wedge
Zone 7 Use of wedges and mattress extenders

Customer Service & Sales Development

We are living in an every changing environment, organisations can’t stand still – a strong customer service culture begins with a positive commitment to change from the CEO and top management. Without this commitment no customer service initiatives will be successful or have long term positive effect on the bottom-line.


Your organisation must create an adaptive environment which encourages its people to take total responsibility for creating the change through a customer service initiative. Providing we can gain that commitment from the organisation we work with we then can guarantee that the initiative will be successful.

The 16PF personality questionnaire measures a set of 16 traits that describe and predict a person’s behaviour in a variety of contexts. As an empirically based tool, the 16PF helps you to remove the subjectivity inherent in the interview or assessment process so that your selection policy is fair, and so that you get the person you really need. In development contexts, the 16PF helps individuals achieve personal insight into their own strengths, potential and career fit – now and in the future.

The MBTI® (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) questionnaire provides a highly insightful framework for individual and group development, provoking self-awareness by looking at how a person perceives the world and how they prefer to interact with others. The MBTI instrument sorts individuals into psychological ‘types’ so that they can identify how they are similar to some people and different to others, and how they can improve their working and personal relationships in a positive and constructive way.

The WPI assessment was designed by Shawn Bakker and Donald McNab. Its purpose is to identify personality traits that directly relate to work performance. This focus on the link between personality traits and work performance helps professionals make the most efficient and effective match between people and work roles. By identifying individual’s personality traits, the WPI can help guide coaching and individual development, enhance leadership development and succession planning, increase team effectiveness and provide insight into how people can best manage their careers.

Will I be able to sleep after using Phenq?

So,  someone came to me on skype asking me about phenq. They wanted to know whether after using the diet pills they would be able to sleep. You see in the supplement’s website, they pin point at caffeine as one of the ingredients. And we all know the side effects of taking too much caffeine–you end up insomniatic and anxious and it shows in your daily activities. So, is there a way out. Again in our post on Why use Phenq pills, we did not talk about the side effects which every weight loss supplement usually has.

Well, this is not an isolated case. Infact, I have seen this fear in many people on different phenq forums where people complain that they are spending the whole night turning and tossing in bed, which is really bad if you are like me who believe that an adult requires at least 7 hours of sleep for them to be profitable the next day. So as I am going through this, it occurs to me that the phenq website has also noted that use of caffeine might not be really good as far as sleeplessness is concerned. So, why include it?

will i sleep after phenq use


Well, they have clearly warned their customers that the phenq pills should not be used past 3.00pm. why? Because you need to prepare your body to sleep. Phenq pack has sixty tablets and you ought to take 2 per day–one in the morning after breakfast and the other before 3.00pm. When you take past you might be affected by the caffeine and end up not sleeping.

  1. Lack of sleep is not a good thing. For one, it affects your productivity.
  2. It affects your hormonal release. Men who sleep for less hours have complained that they end up having lower testosterone levels. Why? The body needs to rest so as to release hormones. Without a rest, you will find yourself with more estrogen than testosterone. Now estrogen makes you more fat while testosterone makes you have muscles.
  3. Sleep deprivation can also make you have a low immune system.
  4. Lack of sleep has been linked to accidents as drivers lack focus and concentration
  5. It makes your skin older as it is not rejuvenated enough. eyes might also get bloodshot.

Stubborn fat burn: The alpha 2 and beta 2 receptors concept

As one of the best fat burners, phenq burns even the stubborn fats in your body. You see after going to the gym, eating proteins and avoiding alcohol and doing everything in the live healthy book, you still find that there are some fats that will simply not go. They are mostly around the stomach area in men where they find that they have a beer belly.stubborn fat man

Women on the other hand find that they have love handles that they simply cannot get rid of. So, what should you do? Well, I will not advise you to do press-ups and sit up benches because I am double sure that you have been told that and tried it. I will however try to explain why you have stubborn fat in the first place before I go ahead to explain how you can get rid of it.

What to do if you have stubborn fats

Well stubborn fats come because of alpha 2 receptors being over active in your body. You see cells have different types of receptors that receive different things be it food, oxygen, pathogens, antibiotics etc. Now the alpha 2 receptors receive fat and refuse to let it go. They also make the blood pressure go low such that metabolism is at the rock bottom.

With hyperactive alpha 2 receptors, you find that you are not really able to burn fat no matter how hard you try. Why? Because the fat is held by the alpha 2 receptors. Unless suppressed or blocked, the alpha 2 receptors make obese people remain that way no matter how hard they train since their rate of metabolism is usually curtailed.

The converse of alpha 2 receptors are the beta 2 receptors that help in fat burn and also increase your blood pressure. Now the beta 2 receptors make it possible for your body to burn fat. People with hyperactive beta 2 receptors find it hard to grow fat unless they are suppressed. That explains why some people never get fat no matter how unhealthy they live. Their metabolism is always on overdrive.

What to do with hyperactive alpha 2 receptors

As we have mentioned, if your alpha 2 receptors are on overdrive, you will never be able to get lean. So you need to block them. Fortunately some weight loss supplement such as eviodamine and yohimbine can help you

What to do with docile beta 2 receptors

We also said that to get rid of fats you can activate your beta 2 receptors. Well, with phenq, you are assured of a win since it activates your docile beta 2 receptors.

Bed bumpers for adult patients

After reading the bed entrapment standards that were laid down by the FDA and the Hospital Bed Safety Workgroup in 2006 about bed entrapment, I decided that it would be better safe than sorry. So, I decided to buy bed bumpers for my grannies hospital bed. But hey, the hustle that it took me to get one.

You see a bed bumper is a foamy cylindrical object that you place on either edge of the mattress so that your patient does not

  1. Fall over
  2. Get entrapped between the side rails or under the side rails against the mattress.

In the explanation videos of all the bumpers that I wanted to buy, the videos were really nice and explained how the bumper would would. I was however dissatisfied when the actual product arrived home. For one the product was not foamy as I had been led to believe. It was a piece of canvas tubing that I was supposed to pump air into so that it would increase in height and I would use it as the bumper.

The disappointment did not just stop there. It went on. I also found out that the canvas thing really smelled. Yes, it did stink badly and the patient would not stand it. So I tried to clean it but lo, it was all in vain. The bad odor still remained.

Since the patient would only puke when they came into close contact with it, I decided to use it on my own normal bed. And things went on well until I discovered that it made my skin itch. As though that was not enough, the canvas tubing began to shrank. Yes, I was so annoyed since even after pumping on it, it would not stay full since it had leaks on its seams.

I just felt as though I had been ripped off my hard earned money. So I contacted support and they were the slowest and unprofessional sales people that I have ever come across.

I would never advise anyone to buy those canvas tubing again. Never, if you want the best bed bumpers, look out for those that are made of foam and make sure that you get the foamy one. No BS.
