The Carpal Aid Story 2

The CarpalAID® Story


This process all started with my surgery. I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in both of my hands, so my doctor recommended the surgery for both.

I finally gave in and had the surgery on my right hand. It was very messy and uncomfortable for me. I was still thinking about having the other hand done, but I was not pleased with the prospect of going through that painful surgery again.

One night I was reading about carpal tunnel syndrome; about the anatomy, and the functionality.

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when there is pressure on the median nerve that runs from the arm to the hand. Many people suffer from it, including dentists, hair stylists, contractors, office workers, pregnant mothers, and more.

As a long time engineer and product developer holding several patents, I was curious about HOW to fix this problem — “The Mechanics.”

I thought long and hard about it and decided that maybe there was a way to lift and/or remove the pressure from the median nerve to relieve the pain.

So then came the experiment: I put some adhesive on my palm with a piece of cardboard, and then I start pulling it out to relieve the pressure. IT ACTUALLY WORKED – it was 2 o’clock in the morning – and amazingly, in a few minutes, the pain was GONE.

So, the very next day, I was thinking about the practical way of making this work. After a bit of thinking and trial and error I came up with this idea to use a particular type of plastic “ with memory” making it kind of concave and applying a medical grade adhesive. I tried more then THIRTY types of adhesive – And then I hit pay dirt I found the one that works best. It’s a 3M specialty medical grade tape that really sticks.

I used this “prototype” every night or every other night and pretty soon I didn’t have the problem. Today two years later I use the actual production CarpalAID® patch maybe once or twice a month. It sure beats surgery

Well back to my engineering background, I wanted to find a scientific reason why this works so well. I met a doctor who is the chief hand surgeon at one of the largest medical institutes in Southern California. He did an MRI both before and after the CarpalAID®’s use and was amazed by the results lifting the soft tissue 3mm and releasing the pressure from the Median nerve.

I then decided to have a clinical test done by an independent organization that conducts these tests and WOW the results were amazing. Over 70% of the people in the trial had the same results as I did the pain was gone. As you may know if more than 50% of people have the positive result, the product is a major hit.

My personal mission is to help people to avoid surgery by using CarpalAID®, which in my opinion, as well as several others is that CarpalAID® is the only product on the market today that works directly on carpal tunnel syndrome to relieve the pain.
