The idea for TracPal arose from the company’s founder Björn Eriksson, who himself suffers from osteoarthritis in the hips. To alleviate and treat symptoms caused by the disorder it was necessary to visit a physiotherapist regularly, but life on the move made it complicated. Thus, there was a need for a device that could imitate a physiotherapists treatment regularly at home and during travel. Moreover, this device should be sufficiently light and compact enough to carry around when travelling.
A co-operation with Tallinn Technical University (Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering) was initiated. The work to implement idea to product was performed at the University during one semester and resulted in a portable self-treatment device for hip joint disorders. The device evolved further with help of private capital and in close collaboration with rehab specialist and yoga instructor Marina Potjomkina. The treatment options for neck, shoulder, lower back and knee were added.
