The Seattle Times
SEATTLE - City Light might have stumbled upon a $9 treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which has been called the industrial disease of the 90s. The public utility conducted a study of 25 Carpal Tunnel sufferers using a palm-sized exerciser called the "Cats Paw" and found that two-thirds of the subjects reported favorable results, according to Keven Mosley Koehler, an occupational- health therapist at the utility.
Another larger study will be conducted later this year.
The device is a palm sized piece of rubber with holes for the fingers, and the prescribed exercise is that of opening the hands as opposed to other ergonomic devices that stress closing the hand. It was developed by a Santa Barbara, California inventor, Joel Gibney, who suffer from the ailment, also called Repetitive Strain Injury, or RSI, because it's caused by repetitive movements of the fingers and hands. It's prevalent among computer keyboard users, grocery checkers, musicians and machine operators.
I am happy to supply you with this letter concerning our positive experience with your product, the Cats Paws hand exerciser for relief and prevention of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Repetitive Strain Injuries. After receiving samples of the Cats Paw, we forwarded them to various clients of ours that were having trouble with Carpal Tunnel.
Most clients reported seeing positive results, with one client in particular having great success from using the Cats Paw. She had been diagnosed and battling Carpal Tunnel for over four years. Using typical therapies such as wrist braces and anti-inflammatory and pain drugs helped some but her problem continued to be very persistent and painful. Surgery may have been on the horizon. The Cats Paw helped her almost immediately. She has seen a tremendous decrease in pain and is much better prepared for her daily routine and happier at work.
We passed out a couple of dozen Cats Paws and have been impressed with the good results. I would highly recommend any company concerned with Carpal Tunnel problems investigate purchasing the Cats Paw. We will continue to recommend and use your effective and affordable product.
