Oprah Winfrey is at home recovering from the brutal fall she had on stage last week, and says she is icing her injuries. But, it’s not the remedy that is impressive it’s the futuristic machine she is using that is the unbelievable. You have to see this!
The billionaire television mogul posted a picture on Instagram sitting in her home reading a newspaper with the caption, “Sunday Reading and icing. Thank you all for your kind wishes. Yes I slipped on stage and I’m now a meme. But so grateful to be only a little sore. Turning the day into what @michelleobama calls #selfcareSunday”
But, you have to look closely at what is wrapped around her right knee…check this thing out!
As you know, Oprah took a terrible spill on stage last week and landed very hard on her right side. But, when you are rich and powerful as Ms. Winfrey, you don’t just wrap a bag of peas around your knee like the rest of us!
Take a hard look at the contraption she has around her leg. It is a ‘Game Ready’ GR Pro 2.1 System, which is a high-tech machine that combines compression therapy with cold air to treat your injury.
Let us try and explain, basically, this machine cools down the air inside the machine with ice, then presses the air through a sleeve that is wrapped around your injured body part. At the same time, it pulses with compressions that help the area heal.
According to its website, the machine, “combines a powerful control unit with a complete range of innovative, circumferential wraps to integrate active cold and intermittent pneumatic compression therapies with greater adjustability, comfort, and convenience than ever before. The easy-to-use, portable system out-cools the competition, taking RICE (Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevation) to the next level for your injury or surgery recovery.”
The only issue with this futuristic, awesome looking machine is that you will have to fork over a pretty penny to get one for yourself. Several retailers online are selling these babies for $2,000-$3,000 bucks!
Of course, that is a drop in the bucket for one of the richest people in the United States, plus its possible O gets stuff like this sent in the mail to her all the time.
By the looks of it, she should be back to perfect shape in NO TIME!
As we reported, Oprah took a nasty nosedive during a speech at The Forum in Inglewood, CA. Ironically, she was talking about balance at the exact moment she took the spill.
In the video, captured by Los Angeles Times en Español, Oprah wobbles taking a few steps before all of the sudden crashing down on the stage. “Wrong shoes!” she said as the crowd laughed along with her and as she kept going with her speech.
