IIRC there is currently a class action suit against one of the manufacturers of those because they were proven to have no benefits.

Its not all placebo its something like "The learned action phenomenon" (Not whats its called but I can't remember the exact name). The idea is if you watch the commercials for these bracelets they "prove" better balance but they always put on their product second. So the person isn't used to the force exerted on them the first time, and then subconsciously compensates for it on the second trial. That and placebo = scam. Save your cash, or just know that if you get it there is no benefit, and just accept it as a fashion accessory.

Do they make claims of improvement in the areas of spelling, grammar and sentence structure?

If so, I think it's worth a shot for you!

Thanks, but I think I will ask you for help instead, the next time I have an essay to do.
