Musculoskeletal physiotherapist Wesley Marshall approached Product Development Technologies (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. The result was necksaviour, a portable, easy-to-use traction device constructed from state-of-the-art materials that increase comfort and durability. The dual layer technology necksaviour incorporates allows 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 a CE marked, Grade 1 medical device and 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.
The necksaviour Indiegogo campaign ran from May 6 to July 5, 2014 and exceeded its target goal by 24%
