PRLog - June 16, 2014 - Baltimore, MD (WEB) June 17, 2014 - - Baltimore startup Verve, comprised of Discovery Channel’s Big Brain Theory Winning Engineer, Corey Fleischer, and UMB grad and Doctor of Physical Therapy, Gene Shirokobrod, crowdfunded $30,000+ on Kickstarter for their product, The ARC. With 650+ Backers, The ARC team exceeded their $20,000 goal and reached $30,000+ in their final hours.
The ARC was created at the Baltimore Foundery, a Maker’s Space, located between Fells Point and Harbor East.
How It Works
Produced using a 3D printer, the ARC’s design is simple, yet innovative. Created to drastically reduce, if not eliminate, discomfort and pain caused by neck joint and muscle tension, The ARC uses the body’s own weight, coupled with a strategically places tension point inserts to isolate and dissolve muscle tension, align the spine and provide relief to a host of common day pains.
By suspending the user’s head, the ARC creates tension along the neck/cervical system, creating the same effect as if someone is hanging from an inversion table, without the discomfort of hanging upside down. As a result, users will experience almost instant pain and discomfort relief, making The ARC a game changing device.
