What is the difference between these Costco Dr. Ho models?

Costco has a few Dr. Ho items on discount but descriptions on these items are terrible, I read through them multiple times and still can't figure out what the difference is:

  1. https://www.costco.ca/dr-ho%e2%80%99s-t ... 03786.html: seems to be just a belt but same price as below?
  2. https://www.costco.ca/dr-ho%e2%80%99s-- ... 27584.html: neck comforter + belt + pain therapy system?
  3. https://www.costco.ca/dr-ho%e2%80%99s-- ... 00791.html: just belt + pain therapy system but for similar price as above?

Is anyone familiar with Dr. Ho products and know which one I should get? Is the brand name worth the price tag? Also I heard you have to keep buying their brand name "gel packs" to continue using them?

Nothing. They are all crap / unproven.
My best advice ... save your money
Or at least do your homework, and know what you are buying into

Dr Michael Ho is a chiropractor, and a businessman / entrepreneur ... and king of the late night Infomercial.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/pa ... e25439320/

I suggest before you buy anything ... you do some GOOGLING research.

And heed the info in that Globe & Mail article knowing that Positive Reviews / Endorsements can be bought
Or some folks have so much money invested ... that they don’t want to think they’ve been duped
That they report ... some improvement

Dr Michael Ho ...
should not be confused with Dr David Ho ... a highly respected actual Dr & Reasearcher

Not sure if the products are effective or not, but the amount of infomercials I see make me think they likely are not and a lot of the cost consumers pay must be going towards marketing costs.
