I am an older member who has had some success here. Although my points and g8 badge are gone i have sharpened my submission skills and learned a lot from these forums. I still keep in touch with members and still work with John Vilardi on many projects. This Tuesday we (Nyce Innovations) are launching our first Kickstarter for the pat pending Nyce pack. This is the worlds first shape forming ice pack for hot/cold therapy. The secret is in the twisted memory shape wire technology that enables repeated bends without kinking.
Nyce Pack is a new type of cold pack that eliminates the need to wrap it thanks to its sturdy flexible arms. Nyce Pack can be molded around the body’s natural shape, making it stay put on ankles, shoulders, wrists, or wherever else it’s needed.
Nyce Pack was founded by two lifelong friends, Leonard Monfredo and Robert Baschnagel, who are both dedicated fathers. It was when Robert’s daughter was diagnosed with bilateral osteochondritis dissecans that the idea of the Nyce Pack first started to come to life. Osteochondritis dissecans is a joint condition that can cause persistent pain and Robert’s daughter was frequently in tears from the condition. As a way to help her cope, she would have to wrap her ankles in ice packs every night, but it was always a struggle to get them on. Nyce Pack was invented as a way to keep those packs in place. It works just like a regular ice pack - you toss it in the freezer and pull it out when needed. The difference is, Nyce Pack includes a flexible filament that allows users to wrap the pack around their body without any need for additional straps or accessories. It can even be used for light compression.
Please support a fellow inventor who had spent many nights working through his submissions and dealing with the setbacks that we all have to deal with. The Kickstarter links will be added as soon as we are live! Thanks and keep on inventing!
