38 NZ GREYPOWER MAGAZINE » MARCH 2018 Never miss another word with Smart Hear Do you struggle to hear the TV? Do you have the volume turned up too high? Are you annoying other members of the family or even neighbours? The Smart Hear listening device will enable you to listen to the TV at the level you want without having to turn up the volume too high. Never again will others complain that the TV volume is too loud. WORN IN FRONT OF THE EAR! Smart Hear is unlike other hearing devices you’ll have seen before, it doesn’t go inside or over your ears! It features headphones that are worn in front of your ears, this may sound crazy, but it works! The beauty of this incredible hearing device is that not only does it provide crystal clear sounds but it also puts less pressure on your ear drums. So no need to fiddle in your ears and no risk of infection. How does it work? The headphones decode sound waves and convert them into vibrations sent directly to the cochlea.This bypasses your eardrums putting less stress on your ears. In fact, it’s an incredibly safer way to boost your hearing. DEVELOPED FOR THE MILITARY This technology was first perfected by the military where bone conduction headsets were implemented to enhance clear and accurate communication. So if it works for soldiers on the battlefield you can be confident it will work for you listening to the TV! HEAR ALL AROUND YOU A big benefit of the Smart Hear is that it enables you to hear the TV, conversations or music – without shutting out ambient sound that may be important, such as traffic noise, or your door bell or telephone when you are watching TV. NOT JUST FOR TV – HEAR ANYTHING UP TO 30 METRES AWAY! Smart Hear is not just for the TV, it’s also perfect for the theatre, walking down the street, the cinema, parties, church or noisy restaurants. You can hear everything that is being said, even 30 meters away. No longer will you feel left out of conversations. VERY COMFORTABLE AND EASY TO USE Smart Hear is far more comfortable than normal hearing devices that have to be inserted in your ears. The earpieces are just like modern headphones – anyone will think you are listening to music or using your mobile phone, when in reality you are listening to every word and sound around you. It will be your secret! Read what our customers have to say: “I love my new hearing device! No more fumbling with those maddening little hearing aids. And my grandchildren say I look trendy wearing my headphones!” Mrs. G, Dorset “My husband no longer gets cross when I turn on the TV!

eZee Kinetic ebike competition winner Congratulations to Reen Stratford, from Wanganui, who has been drawn as the winner of the eZee Kinetic ebike (silver Sprint 3LST valued at $2549) from Electric Bike Hub. This fantastic prize was hotly sought after with many entries, including some impressive stories and even a well written poem. Such was the calibre of entries, that the winner was decided after a random draw - and Reen Stratford was the lucky name drawn. Reen shared with us that she hoped to win the Kinetic ebike to prove to herself and her family that she is NOT getting old or geriatric, and is definitely a ‘with-it’ granny. “I live on top of a very steep hill overlooking Wanganui (Durrie Hill) and need the ebike to get me back up it (after I’ve got down!). I can get into town by walking up and down 193 steps, take a car round the hill, take a vintage elevator ride (which is a fantastic experience, but not the 200m walk to it inside the hill carrying my shopping bags!) .. or … I could freewheel gracefully down the hill on a bike. However, I couldn’t, even with maximum effort, pedal my way back up the hill to home - but I could get back up the hill on the ebike! “I also need the ebike beause I’ve had Don’t let pain cramp your style both my knees done and cycling is the only passive way to build the strength back up in my legs. “If I could also dream a little, I could use the ebike for all sorts of wonderful journeys: cycling to meet up with friends for a coffee, exploring the riverbank cycleways, putting my bowls on the back (or in a basket in front) and skimming down the hill and along the riverside for a day’s bowls, and on the way home coming back up the other side of the hill through Okoia so I can get some fresh farm milk from the farmers’ gate. “But most of all, I just need the ebike to show my children and grandchildren that I am still a fit, healthy, fun loving and adventurous gran who is keeping up with the times, and with them of course, and isn’t consigned to the knackers yard quite yet!” The Kinetic ebike is generously provided to Reen by Electric Bike Hub and the Kinetic bike is the same proven brand that all seven council fleets use, as well as the NZ Transport Agency. The Kinetic ebike is available through all 25 Electric NZ GREYPOWER MAGAZINE » MARCH 2018 39 ® Bike Shops throughout New Zealand or look online at www.electricbikehub.co.nz for more information. Electric Bike Hub extends the offer of 75 dollars off any ebike they sold to Greypower members. Getting a poor night’s sleep or waking with night cramps is the stuff of nightmares. Treat yourself to some well deserved relief, with a helping hand from Crampeze. Leg cramps, also known as night leg cramps, are fairly common and occur mostly at night. Leg cramps are characterised by a sudden movement in the leg muscles, causing painful, involuntary contractions to occur. They can last from a few seconds up to a few minutes.
