The history of the Handy Care RingTM
My name is Eero Simuna and I’ve been working as a masseur for close to 30 years. At work I’ve met lots of people from many professions who are suffering of symptoms in their forearms. Different kinds of RSI such as; mouse-arm and tennis/golf-elbow, seem to be on the rise for the past few years.
A few years back even I started having symptoms in my arms. After suffering with my pains for the longest time I started development on a solution. My immediate thoughts were that this tool would have to be: easy to use, easy to take with you anywhere and effective.
Even the first prototype that I developed had a positive effect on my symptoms. At this point one of the people who were first to try out my tool: Harri Ylitalo (HVAC Entrepreneur) joined development with me as a partner. We made multiple different versions of the care ring and asked our clients and friends to try them out. From the feedback we had received from those prototypes, the product got its final form and the Handy Care RingTM was born.
