From Massaging Helmets to Weird Wrist Relaxers

 - Dec 24, 2009
As we wrap up the hectic holiday season at Trend Hunter and begin to get pumped for the 2010 CES trade show, clustering these bizarre therapeutic gadgets seems like a natural fit for the season. After all, what better to wear while working all day at a desk than a helmet that massages your scalp or a wearable spine-shaped massager to help improve your posture? And what better way to make it through a hectic travel schedule than with a watch that alerts you when your stress level changes?

After clicking through this slideshow of bizarre therapeutic gadgets, it’s clear that relaxation comes in many forms—not all of them normal. How many of these will we see at the 2010 CES trade show? Last year, we saw a marked emphasis on personalization in terms of auto dashboards and mobile phones. This year, we’re betting that therapeutic gadgets, digital health trackers and DIY healthcare options will hit CES as recession-era consumers take stock of their health and well being.

Check out these and more bizarre therapeutic gadgets in the slideshow below. Which of these would you most like to see at the 2010 CES trade show? Would you ever own one of these unusual gadgets?
