DR-HO’S Holiday Gift Guides: Perfect Gifts for the Active Senior in Your Life

DR-HO’S Holiday Gift Guides: Perfect Gifts for the Active Senior in Your Life
November 27, 2020


Gifting is hard. With so many options, it can be easy to get overwhelmed and overthink the perfect gift. At DR-HO'S, our gift guides are designed to help gift-givers narrow down some great ideas that their loved ones will find real value in — because ultimately, we want to give gifts that our loved ones will enjoy and that will help them get more out of life.

Let us help you narrow down the choices and find the perfect gift (or two) for the active senior in your life. While they still love tending to a lush garden, getting out on nature walks, strolling around town, or playing with the grandkids, you're starting to notice the wear-and-tear on the body that comes with age. They don't have any desire to slow down or sit still, but you want to make sure that they have access to pain management tools and activity aids that can help them stay active for longer. 

Whether it's chronic pain or wear-and-tear from activity, check out these gifts that can help a parent, grandparent, friend or loved one manage pain and stay comfortable while staying active! 



1. Everlasting Comfort Seat Cushion

Sitting more ergonomically should be a priority, especially for seniors who may spend a lot of time seated. An ergonomic seat cushion can not only provide some much needed comfort when sitting for long periods of time, but it can also help offset some of the pressure put on spinal discs, reducing the pain and discomfort that comes with poor posture in the long term. A super-soft, memory foam cushion is a small but mighty addition to any pain management routine.

2. DR-HO’S Circulation Promoter

The Circulation Promoter is a personal-use pain management device from DR-HO’S product line that is designed to relieve pain, relax muscles and improve local circulation from the feet upwards by increasing blood flow and stimulating foot muscles.

TENS technology, EMS technology and DR-HO'S proprietary AMP (Auto-Modulating Pulse) stimulation: these drug-free pain relief technologies work together in this compact unit to deliver effective pain-relieving stimulation that can help the active senior perform the activities they love with more confidence and less pain



3. Carhartt Heavyweight Thermal Base Layer

The temperature-regulating wool/polyester blend in this thermal base layer from Carhartt helps keep the heat in, and the cold out — even in the most inclement weather. Temperature-sensitivity can increase as one ages, and it can prevent the active senior in your life from getting outside and living their desired lifestyle. This thermal base layer is not only beneficial for regulating body temperature, but it’s also stylish with the recognizable and reputable Carhartt name-brand.

More on the DR-HO'S Circulation Promoter

The Circulation Promoter is designed to help improve local circulation, reduce swelling, relieve pain, tension and stiffness, and alleviate aching feet and legs. This device is powered by TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation), EMS (electrical muscle stimulation), and AMP (auto-modulating pulse) technology that work in tandem to help alleviate pain. TENS technology works to stimulate the nervous system with gentle electrical currents that “override” pain signals in the brain.

To ensure that the nervous system doesn’t adjust to this therapy and prevent it from working, AMP technology was introduced to make the stimulation more unpredictable and thus continually effective for the user over time. Additionally, EMS technology in the Circulation Promoter can provide relaxing muscle stimulation that mimics a massage. 

The lack of circulation in the feet and legs that commonly affects seniors can result in cramps, stiffness, blood clots and more discomfort. Improved circulation can help to provide relief from the pain that keeps this active senior from doing the things that they love with the people they love. A device such as DR-HO'S Circulation Promoter can be a meaningful gift this holiday season for the active senior experiencing chronic pain.
