Special Needs Group/Special Needs at Sea (SNG) offers the Soothie° Cushion, designed to provide hot and cold therapy and prescription-free pain relief for travelers with disabilities.
The Soothie° Cushion can be used to regulate multiple sclerosis and myasthenia gravis patients’ body temperature. In addition, it is utilized for overall wheelchair comfort, and to help relieve the pain of sciatica, scoliosis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy, sports injuries, migraines, and more.
“We want travelers with special needs to enjoy exploring while in comfort, and with peace of mind,” says Andrew J. Garnett, founder, president & CEO of Dania Beach, Fla-based SNG, in a media release. “The Soothie° Cushion provides a wonderful opportunity for travelers with MS and other disabilities to experience the relief of a new kind of hot and cold therapy.”
For heat therapy, the Soothie° Cushion can be used for up to 30 minutes at a time to keep the body from overheating. When the body returns back to its normal temperature, it can be used again.
For cold therapy, the Soothie° Cushion can be used for up to 10 minutes at a time, every hour. It is important to always finish a contrast session with cold, and to avoid open wounds. It is not advised to use contrast therapy after surgery, as it can increase chances of infection and bleeding, per the release.
“The product we offer is the result of over a decade of development, testing and research,” states Claudia Rimoli, founder and manufacturer of the Soothie° Cushion. “We are extremely proud to partner with Special Needs Group to provide an accessible and portable product for customers with special needs to experience hands-free hot and cold therapy relief while traveling.”
