PRESS RELEASE February 1997
NEW FOREST COMPANY ANNOUNCES MORE, BENEFICIAL MAGNETIC THERAPY PRODUCTS, ALL DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED LOCALLY!
Six months on from launch, as a result of increased interest from all over the UK and Ireland, Magnecare have introduced some new therapeutic devices that augment the original range. Barry explained, "due to the success of our therapy devices when used in the home, we have designed and developed a portable magnetic pad that can be folded up and carried in a suitcase. We were helped greatly in our development by our seamstress, Margaret Longman, also based in Bransgore. Margaret is well know in the area as the current chairwomen of the Bransgore Mothers Union.
The travel pad can be taken on holiday, on business trips, weekends in the caravan, any occasion when away from home overnight. For the business person on long haul flights, relaxing on their own magnetic pad when they get their first night's sleep away, can restore the body's rhythms and energy quicker and overcome the lethargy of jet lag."
"Continuing the theme of portability," Sara explained, "we identified the need for a device that people can wear during their normal day and not necessarily stand out like a sore thumb! We developed the idea of a magnetic wrist band into something more aesthetically pleasing, whilst delivering the benefits of magnetherapy. With New Forest craftsman and artist in leather, David Turner, we have developed and produced a leather wrist strap with magnets sown in to it. "The band is proving to be very popular with people who are suffering with all kinds of physical pain from back, neck, joints etc. It is the ideal all day therapy to bring relief. One of our clients in Poole, was so pleased to get relief from a very painful back just three hours after first wearing the wristband, called us with a request for something to help his dog. David made a special leather collar. We have had considerable success with animals as they seem to know naturally what is good for them."
A number of further exciting new products are currently under development to bring benefit to pain sufferers, specifically in the area of sports and occupational injuries.
