About our project



80% of adults have back pain.
We have a solution that has been shown to be effective at treating, preventing, and eliminating this problem.

We all know that stretching before exercise can prevent injury, but did you know it is also a great way reduce back pain and injury? Your spine was not designed to be sitting in chairs all day. Until now it has been difficult, time consuming and expensive to stretch properly. PowerStretch devices make it easy.

Why Should You Care About Stretching?

A Flexible body works better:

• Inflexibility brings on lower back and hamstring pain and injury.

• Nearly 80% of our adult population suffers from lower back pain, and back flexibility is one of the best ways to reduce or eliminate this type of pain.

• The benefits are significant to those who suffer serious or occasional back pain.

HOW THE POWERSTRETCH WORKS

To properly stretch, targeted muscles should be in a relaxed or passive state. Solo stretching creates an inherent conflict of self-generated stretching force interfering with the passive state muscles. While dynamic or ballistic stretching is an option, it is less effective, and invites injury. Yet partner or trainer assisted stretching can be costly and time consuming.

The PowerStretch provides single or bilateral passive stretching and spinal decompression without assistance. You just sit there relaxed and push the button. The PowerStretch does all the work! It is just like having a trainer stretch you, but better.

The effects of PowerStretch can only be compared to the those achieved by physical therapists or professional trainers.

There is no danger of over stretching because the gradual, static pressure can be released at any moment. Users are never attached or strapped to a device or machine out of their control. Users simply let go of the button and it stops immediately.

The PowerStretch provides maximum flexibility, in a limited amount of time, all at the touch of a button. The PowerStretch is simple and safe to use and the beneficial effects are almost immediate.

Why the PowerStretch Stick is Right for You:

Virtually everyone with back pain or athletes who want to improve performance will benefit from the PowerStretch. While there are no real shortcuts to strength and aerobic conditioning, PowerStretch products can provide an exceptionally effective, simple, effortless and interesting solution to achieve flexibility.

PowerStretch products ALWAYS perform at the exact same speed and force every time. The user stays relaxed, maintains full control and develops a level of comfort and trust while realizing incomparable results. We have demonstrated marked success with hundreds of people of different ages, size and condition during limited three or four one minute sessions.

PowerStretch products provide maximum flexibility, in a limited amount of time, all at the touch of a button. PowerStretch products are simple and safe to use and the beneficial effects are almost immediate.

The PowerStretch was also designed to assist professionals with the task of ensuring their patients, clients and players achieve maximum flexibility.

How PowerStretch Helps Collegiate and Professional Athletics Teams & Personal Trainers

Do you want your team to reach their maximum potential and reduce injuries? As you know, there are three major categories of fitness training: cardiovascular, strength, and flexibility. Typically, flexibility training receives the least attention. However, athletes function at their highest levels by achieving maximum flexibility. Body flexibility is also one of the most effective ways possible to treat, fix and prevent certain injuries associated with athletic performance.

Here is what the Pros have to say on the topic:

“Fitness is extremely important in my profession and in my personal life. I’m always striving for more flexibility and strength. The PowerStretch is a wonderful tool to help me achieve my goals.”
Michael Allen – Professional Golfer, Winner 2009 Senior PGA Championship

“I really enjoyed stretching on the PowerStretch. If I had this when I was playing, I would have used it several times a day …I like it better than a personal trainer because you control the stretching pressure …This is something any professional athlete can us, but it’s also for anyone who wants to be more flexible.”
Jake Tsakalidis – 15 Year Professional Basketball Player – 7’2” 310lbs

“I was basically in heaven on this thing!”. “This will seriously revolutionize physical therapy, athletic training and stretching. It goes the speed you want…the consistency is amazing …no jerking, no yanking…”
Kevin Nee – World Strongman Athlete – Youngest ever to Reach World’s Strongest Man Finals – at Age 21 in 2007

“The PowerStretch is a masterpiece of engineering and creativity. I am amazed at its effectiveness, ease and control of operation as well as its versatility. I think that the PowerStretch would be a valuable addition for every training room.”
Alan W. Palmer, D.C., C.C.S.T. – Team Chiropractor for Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB) and Phoenix Coyotes (NHL)

Those are pretty strong recommendations from some of the best athletes in the world. It is no wonder some of the top teams in the world are placing pre-orders! We need your help to get a sizable first order though so please back this project at the Total Team Level to prevent injuries and improve your team.

How the PowerStick Helps Medical Offices, Physical Therapy Clinics & Chiropractors

Most patients do not stretch right without the oversight of a physical therapist or assistant. With the PowerStick your staff has a tool that makes sure patients do it right the first time and every time, speeding recovery and improving the quality of care that can be provided by your team. This means you and your team can treat more people more effectively in less time.

With our Reseller package you can also provide PowerStretch for your patients at home. The PowerStretch Stick provides patients the ability to safely and effectively perform flexibility exercises at home so that they do not experience a “fall off” and they are ready for their next office visit.

Here is what clinicians have to say about the PowerStretch:

“PowerStretch is an innovative fitness aid which allows you to significantly increase flexibility and range of motion in an atraumatic fashion. I believe PowerStretch to be essential for promoting the overall health of joints and muscles with, surprisingly, rapid results.”
Dr. Stacey D. McClure, M.D. PLLC – Orthopedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine Specialist

“I have had the opportunity to work with The PowerStretch since its early inception. The research I have been involved with as well as my personal experience has shown the PowerStretch device to be an effective tool in overall flexibility programming. I personally recommend and will continue to use The PowerStretch in my research lab and fitness facilities.”
Dr. Brent A. Alvar Ph.D., C.S.C.S.D, FNSCA – Residential Faculty Member/Sport Performance Director for Chandler Gilbert Community College

How We Will Utilize Your Contributions:

We’ve been working on PowerStretch devices for 5 years and it is ready for production.

What we thought was any easy concept – “make a motorized device that stretches people” – turned out to be a very difficult process involving years of engineering, testing, prototyping, re-engineering, more prototyping, more testing and hundreds of product tests and revisions.

At last, we have a final version everyone loves. Trainers, Therapists, Athletes, and patients with back pain all agree – they love the PowerStretch because we listened to them and didn’t stop designing until it was perfected. We think you will love it too. We are so sure that we will offer a 100% ‘no questions asked’ money back guarantee.

We have made a down payment on our first production run, but need your help to fund the full run.

By meeting our goal, we will be able to overcome the final costs of tooling and manufacturing setup and begin producing our first run of PowerStretch Stick units at a price that is affordable.
