Health Enterprises awarded APMA Seal of Acceptance for two products
NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. Health Enterprises has been awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance for its Therapeutic Foot Massager and Tru-Ice Reusable Ice Therapy, the company announced Wednesday.
The APMA Seal of Acceptance Program was created to inform podiatric physicians and consumers about products whose quality, safety and effectiveness promote good foot health. In order to qualify for the Seal, products must pass a scientific evaluation by a panel of APMA members and testing at a recognized laboratory.
The Therapeutic Foot Massager helps relieve pain, reduce stress and relax tired feet with three easy-to-use massage options (massage with heat, massage with cold or basic massage). Tru-Ice provides cold therapy to help reduce swelling and relieve pain with an ergonomic, reusable design and patented liner system.
“Both the Therapeutic Foot Massager and Tru-Ice products have been medically proven to bring relief to individuals suffering from foot pain, using the latest technology in over-the-counter foot massage and cold therapy treatments,” stated Ronald Jensen, APMA president.
