    I have not heard of it.
    Since is is so new I'd love to see the trials this company has run on testing it out.

    Why not simply use a hand-held massage to give you abdominal massage? I suggest this be done at night when you get turned. I use one ever night, several times when I'm having difficulty with my digestion.

    I thought of that but I'm pretty sure that my former caregiver stole my Hitachi magic wand.

    Maybe he was lonely.

    The above unit is perfectly fine for the abdomen and lighter than the cordless ones they push which are much more expensive. This is $28. I have a similar unit i have used almost daily for 11 years and it is still going strong. It is loud now, but I'm nearly deaf. What do I care?

    "She" was married... but she may have been lonely.

    I've been meaning to get another but just keep putting it off.
