Now I think I've heard it all...

There's something wrong with this: a company that specializes in hospital beds is now offering the "Excel Care" bariatric bed for patients who are morbidly obese. It's designed for people who weigh up to 1,000 pounds, with all sorts of built-in reinforcing supports, slings and inflation devices that make it easier for huge people to adjust and move around in bed and switch positions to avoid getting pressure sores and ulcers.

Hillenbrand Industries announced the new product line this week. Federal stats show that nearly 5% of Americans are considered "morbidly obese," meaning they're 100 or more pounds overweight.

Strikes me as just wrong -- that a health-care system that prides itself on some of the best "medicine" in the entire world has produced a nation that needs such a product (come DO people get to 1,000 pounds?).

At least the bed doesn't have a built-in speaker system that asks, "You want fries with that?"

I hope.

My mistake!

My book, Surgery Sucks!!!! and the DVD, are NOT available for sale overseas. Sorry my friends, that's final. It's totally out of my control when it's left the country. However, both are for sale to overseas clients who also pay for and attend one of my workshops to learn the material firsthand. Having spent 20 years working on this stuff, I hope practitioners of connective tissue work can appreciate the level of work that is included in the System and can pay accordingly. Sincerely, Richard

The Rossiter System: Coming to National Athletic Trainers' Association Convention

Be sure to stop by the trade show exhibits at the upoming National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) national convention June 13-16 at the Indiana Convention Center and RCA Down in downtown Indianapolis.

I'll be manning the Rossiter System Workouts booth, and anyone who stops by can get a "taste" of what the powerful Rossiter System stretching techniques feel like and what they can do.

Knee pain? Expect relief from a 30-minute stretch.

Shoulder pain or stiff neck? You'll be looser and pain-free in as little as 90 seconds.

Low back pain? A little trickier, but still easy to "fix" if you're willing to spend about 2-3 minutes on the floor and really stretch your quadriceps hard to get rid of back pain (honest!).

If you're a trainer, coach, athlete -- anyone who's interested in a healthier body and better performance -- be sure to stop by!
