Small Space Comfort

Whether it is time for back to school or work (both are true in my house), have you considered the small dimension of large comfort a Redema may provide you?  It could be a dorm room, apartment, RV, airline flight layover, on the sofa or bed, or just under a desk — your Redema can elevate you and your day with supportive and affordable comfort.  To make any chair an easier chair, click this link to Redema your day now!

Three minutes

That’s all I have at the moment before I have to go.  It just occurred to me that it usually only takes about three minutes to order online, if that long.  That number works best if you know what you want.  If you are looking for portable and adjustable comfort for the lower body, you have come to the right place!  For your comfort or the comfort of a loved one, visit the Redema Shop now.  Thank you in advance!  (Time’s almost up!)

Redema Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day will be here soon.  I hope you are planning on either getting or giving her some flowers, as that is always appreciated by us moms, right? Don’t forget the moms-yet-to-be either!

However, if you are looking for something unique that will lift her sole (and most likely both of them), consider offering her a Redema you’ve inflated beforehand.  Here’s my suggested scenario for a great relaxing Mother’s Day: Bring her the amazing bouquet you selected.  After she’s settled the flowers where she wants to view them, insist that she sit down in her favorite spot.  Get her something nice to drink, and then… bring out her new Redema in her favorite color.  Insist on her not getting up, but allowing you to adjust the Redema just the way she likes it.  She is then declared to have the rest of the day off in comfort just as she likes it.

Redema her day like never before –now just visit the Redema Store! Don’t be late with your order for Mom on her day!

(By the way, I LOVE being a Mom, and I would love to hear your Mother’s Day Redema Story, too!)

Sharing the Love

This is just a quick note to say, Happy Valentine’s Day!

I haven’t been this happy shipping out so many orders in quite some time, so I also wanted to offer my gratitude and best wishes for convenient comfort.  That being the case, if this rush continues, I will not have many Redemas to offer for very long.  I am seeking licensing, so if you or someone you know is interested in helping make the Redema more widely available, please let me know at admin@redema.us.  Let’s share the Redema love! Visit the store now!

We’re Back in Business!

After a very long wait, we are now able to offer the exclusive Redema Ottoman Footrest to you!  That being said, our inventory is limited, so if you are interested in obtaining enviable portable and adjustable comfort, now is the time!  Click here to order now!

Also, please note in my store the fine handcrafted pens offered by “Dr. Joe,” a dear friend of mine who doesn’t skimp a bit on quality craftsmanship.  These make great gifts, and he does make custom orders, so please contact me or visit his website for more options beyond what I have in my store at present.

Mini-Informercial for the Redema

Here’s one way to see the Redema Ottoman Footrest in practical action — my nine-year old son Ian’s first mini-infomercial, demonstrating the Redema in his own way. (He’d like to dedicate this pitch to the memory of Billy Mays, his inspiration for him to try this. He loved watching Billy in “Pitchmen,” and his many commercials.)

Tell us your Redema Experience Here

I’m having a great time processing orders for you (for no charge at the moment –well, OK, there are the shipping and handling fees), which is done by yours truly, the Product Developer of the Redema Ottoman Footrest, Karen Tinsley-Kim. This deal may not last much longer, as it is dependent upon how many remain in stock.

I believe in the Redema very much and continue to use it daily. I’m just having trouble getting the attention I need for the Redema so it can be even more accessible to your family and friends. Many of the stores I’ve approached over the last year or two are no longer in business, and for the ones that remain, the competition has been fierce.

Being a full-time university instructor and mom of three young men has not afforded me the time or funds to adequately market this product. However, I am grateful and pleased with the progress I’ve made thus far to actually get the Redema patented (US Utility Patent #7,464,991), thanks to the great help of family and friends.

Frankly, I’ve been at this long enough that my current packaging needs to be redone. They are not suitable for store shelves anymore. But instead of letting these Redemas go to waste, I’m giving them away with the expectation that all of you will help me get the Redema Ottoman Footrest where it should be — under more people’s legs and feet so they can benefit.

Like the economy, the future of the Redema Ottoman Footrest is uncertain. It may be that once these are gone (and frankly there are not so many), I may just call this amazing adventure in product development of the Redema a done deal.

Would you share your Redema Experience here, especially if you have participated in this special giveaway? You may be among the select owners of the only Redema Ottoman Footrests that will ever be made. Your thoughts and tributes are most genuinely appreciated!

Can’t afford an adjustable bed?

Just a few days ago, I a local woman obtained a Redema for her husband who has had multiple back surgeries, and he desired some kind of elevated support while in bed. My grandmother continues to use hers for one of her legs when she sleeps. I’ve had other customers tell me they’ve purchased a Redema for similar reasons so they could get elevation for their legs and feet but while lying down.

For some of us it might be to improve circulation, others to relieve pain, while for others it may be to reduce swelling or a combination of these. Compared to the expensive adjustable beds out there, the Redema is a much more affordable, but still adjustable option for lower-body elevation.

The Redema at the Little Ears Expo 2009

You may have caught from my Twitter or Facebook posts that I went to the Little Ears Expo last Saturday, July 25th, which was sponsored by Z88.3, our local Christian radio station in the Central Florida area. (Visit http://zradio.org to listen online anywhere — How’s that for a free visit to Orlando?) The expo was held in Faith Hall at the First Baptist Church of Orlando.

We immediately ran into Tyler, one of the radio personalities there, as she was on break in the snack room area. She’s pregnant with her second child, and my son Ian offered one of our Redemas in tow to borrow to rest up for her presentation. She told us she is using her Redema at home that was donated some time ago to Z88.3, which was very nice to hear — her Redema must be holding up pretty well! (Ian is enjoying getting to know Tyler from the other Z88.3 events they have held this summer, and matching faces with radio voices has been quite a brush with local greatness for him! In college, I worked at a Christian radio station as an announcer during my senior year, and it was a blast — so it is neat to see who is in front of the microphone these days for me as well.)

Modeling the Multilevels of the Redema

Modeling the Multilevels of the Redema

We then walked around, talking to different people there about the Redema Ottoman Footrest — moms of young ones, grandmothers, but most importantly the vendors who were targeting their products and services to these special ladies. One of the vendors we enjoyed meeting is just starting a new business as an on-location photographer named Kelli Todtenhagen of Winter Springs. Kelli and her business partner, Bekah Murray, were willing to do a sitting for us, modeling the Redemas we had — that’s not something you get a photographer to do everyday, is it? Bekah confessed she has circulation issues, so the height was a welcome change. It seems both of them enjoyed getting their feet up with dignity, don’t you think? Kelli can be reached at 407-461-8815 and will travel to most areas in Central Florida, I’m told.

Central Florida Birth Network Rests a Bit

Central Florida Birth Network Rests a Bit

In addition, we met up with a number of birth centers and networking groups. Among them was the Central Florida Birth Network, found at www.centralfloridabirthnetwork.com, where information can be found about doulas to yoga to lactation and more. One of the members also modeled using a Redema, but this was a first with an exercise ball!

Just before we left, we briefly met with Heart 2 Heart Birth Center, which can be found at www.h2hbirthcenter.com. They loved hearing my story about how my Redema was so helpful during my pregnancies, recovery from my c-section and support while nursing. Delightfully, I was invited to present sometime this fall at their center, and I can hardly wait. This group is very professional and caring, and I look forward to getting to know them and their services better.

All in all, the Little Ears Expo was a terrific event: Vendors of all kinds, generously sharing information and support to help moms get through the tough stuff a bit easier. My only sorrow is this event wasn’t around when I was pregnant with each of my guys! It was a pleasure to be there, and I look forward to next year’s event!

Get a Redema for Freeeee!

One silver lining to this far-too-long-already recession is that people and businesses are deeply discounting or giving away things at an unprecidented rate. Of course, the hope is that word of mouth marketing will bring customers back for future purchases.

One example that I’ve recently enjoyed has been through a new Chipotle restaurant that has opened near us. My boys thought they didn’t like it based on a previous visit over a year ago, but I pushed this opportunity to try it again. We stood in line for free food and drinks for about 30 minutes the first time and about and hour the second (yes, they did this 2 days in a row!). Chipotle does little to no advertising — it is events like this that promote how good the food is there. I know now that my boys will go back — they changed their minds, and now say they love Chipotle! I confess I love Chipotle for this all the more, too, as it used to be I was the only one who enjoyed eating there.

Following Chipotle’s model, I would like to offer you a Redema at no cost save for the shipping and handling for one day. But, the catch is this — like Chipotle, I’m only holding this event for one day, probably only for a limited window in that 24 hour period. You want to know when it is? Look on the left side of this page. Do you see the “Enter your e-mail address” box? Just put your most frequently checked e-mail address, and then the day of the event, you should get my posting announcing the coupon code for the one day to get a Redema free!

Here’s a hint: August is Inventor’s Month. To celebrate, this event will be sometime in the first two weeks of August. So, tell your friends to visit http://RedemaLiving.com and sign up! Who wouldn’t enjoy a little comfort for free? Of course, I’m expecting you to help me get the word out about how wonderful the Redema is in return. Thanks in advance, and be sure to check your e-mail regularly in August!
