ABSTRACT

A Slovenian company that is operating in the healthcare industry has developed a product, a wrist massager that helps alleviate wrist pain or carpal tunnel syndrome due to prolonged computer work. The device supports and massages the userís wrist while holding the computer mouse and prevents pressure build-up and consequent pain. The company is looking for producers of casings for this product through manufacturing agreement.


FULL DESCRIPTION

A start-up company from Slovenia aims to help people who experience wrist pain because of excessive computer use. The company created and developed a smart device that helps reduce wrist pain by gently massaging the userís wrist while holding the computer mouse during work. The device is also suitable for anyone who is making repetitive wrist movements during the day (such as auto mechanics, hairdressers, dentists, etc.)
Device works by local vibration therapy - a technique that works by vibrating stimuli for a particular muscle or other damaged part of the body. Vibrations work deeply on the muscle tissue, accelerating blood circulation and metabolism, regulating and greatly stimulating the tension of muscle tissue. It also regenerates the cells.
Device has a versatile use, both in the wrist area where the group of tiny muscles is located and is sensitive to external stimuli as well as on other parts of the body, especially the shoulder ring and spine. The shoulder ring, the spine and the carpal channel are parts of the body that are most exposed to work-related injuries.
The company is looking for producers who are capable producing a customized plastic casing for this product, according to companyís drawings and design. The casing is formed in such a way to allow all the functionalities of the device.
The desirable type of cooperation is manufacturing agreement.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The company is looking for experienced producers who are capable producing a customized plastic casing according company's drawings and design, using molding technique. The casing should retain all the functions that it already have.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The company is looking for producers who are capable of producing plastic casings for the wrist supporters, according to inventor specifications.


Advantages & innovations:

The innovation of the product lies in vibration technology which helps alleviate pain and pressure on the userís wrist. It has helped numerous people with wrist pain or carpal tunnel syndrome.
For its innovative nature, the product was awarded several awards on international fairs and got a special award from the Polish Innovators Association (SPWiR). It was awarded a silver medal on the international innovations fair ARCA in Zagreb, Croatia, where more than 200 innovations were competing.
