Musculoskeletal physiotherapist Wesley Marshall approached PDT with a vision for an innovative, portable, cost-effective traction product that comfortably stretches the neck to relieve neck pain, muscle spasms, stiffness, and tension headaches.
As many as 50% of adults will experience neck pain this year. Many of the home-use traction products on the market were not satisfying the needs of people with neck pain. A majority of traction products use foam that is easily bent out of shape and causes significant forces that can aggravate conditions.
necksaviour is constructed from state-of-the-art materials that increase comfort and durability. The dual layer technology allow users to achieve a light or strong stretch.
Highly versatile in design, necksaviour has both a short and long neck option to accommodate people with different neck lengths. necksaviour is intended to alleviate a variety of symptoms, including tension headaches, stiffness, muscle spasms, joint inflammation, arthritis, acute whiplash, and many others. The simple and lightweight design makes necksaviour extremely easy-to-use and affordable.
necksaviour is a CE marked, Grade 1 medical device tested by the University of Hertfordshire (England). The materials used to manufacture necksaviour are completely skin friendly.
necksaviour is activated when it is folded in half and placed in a “U” shape behind your neck. Fully relax onto the necksaviour before releasing it for an effective stretch.
The necksaviour Indiegogo campaign ran from May 6 to July 5, 2014 and exceeded its target goal by 24%.
