Hic-Cup Ltd., an emerging health and medical device innovator, announced the release of their flagship product, The Hic-Cup, as an all-natural, science-based cure for singultus, or chronic hiccups. Despite the jokes and folklore remedies surrounding the condition, chronic hiccups classify as a legitimate medical problem that affects people of all ages. Thanks to the Hic-Cup, a patented Class I medical device, hiccup sufferers can now enjoy 100% drug-free relief from this plaguing condition.
According to WebMD, “A hiccup is an involuntary spasmodic contraction of the muscle at the base of the lungs (diaphragm) followed by the rapid closure of the vocal cords.” While most cases of hiccups last for a few minutes and are the result of a mild esophageal irritation, chronic hiccups can persist for hours or days, with episodes recurring over the course of several months. The Hic-Cup affords singultus sufferers a safe, sanitary and discreet way to control these embarrassing, disruptive and often painful hiccupping episodes.
Using natural galvanic action to stimulate the Vagus and Phrenic nerves, the Hic-Cup administers quick, safe, pain-free sub-sensory bio-electric therapy to re-establish proper function of the esophagus and diaphragm. Constructed of stainless steel and brass, the Hic-Cup affords its owners with an attractive, durable, portable and easily cleaned apparatus for controlling their hiccup outbreaks. It is a sanitary medical device, completely free of side-effects, dangerous drug interactions, or risk.
Chronic hiccup sufferers report their condition as more than just a distressing nuisance. Singultus adversely affects the ability to perform activities requiring precision work and focused concentration – including but not limited to machinery operation, laboratory studies, surgery and other medical procedures, archery, darts, target shooting, sculpting, painting, woodworking, chiseling and many other skills. In cases where laser-focused concentration and a steady hand is critical, the Hic-Cup offers immediate relief of disruptive hiccups for better job/skill performance and increased confidence.
Singultus also detracts from professionalism and credibility during public speaking occasions. According to Phil Ehlinger, CEO of Hic-Cup Ltd., “The Hic-Cup is ultra low cost ‘professional performance insurance’ for speakers, teachers, broadcasters, performers, sales professionals, and everyone who uses their voice as a business tool.”
Some illnesses and medical conditions associated with chronic hiccups include: esophageal cancer, pleurisy of the diaphragm, pneumonia, uremia, alcoholism, disorders of the stomach or esophagus, and bowel diseases, pancreatitis, pregnancy, bladder irritation, liver cancer, hepatitis, surgery and tumors.
