THE BIRTH OF THERAPEUTIC BRACELETS
Nicolas STOS, physiotherapist by trade, had the idea of ergonomic and therapeutic bracelets intended for the well-being of his patients during his studies. It was while doing his first internships in hospital that he realized that a smooth, continuous work between two physiotherapy sessions, could make his patients progress more significantly, help them feel better during their day-to-day. But how to act gently on specific areas without it being a constraint?
It was in 2014 that he thought of bracelets. Since these were already on the market in the form of sand-weighted bracelets, he decided to buy one and began to perform tests on himself. Then he suggested that patients with hip and shoulder surgery, Parkinson's and many other diseases try these weighted bracelets. The results were felt quickly by the patients and their progression was more significant than that of the patients suffering from the same pathologies and who were not wearing a bracelet.
However, a major problem was quickly felt: clutter. Indeed, these bracelets were bulky, did not hold in place and were unpleasant to wear daily. Not because they weren't of good quality, but because these bracelets weren't designed for this kind of use.
So we had to think about a new concept, less cumbersome on a daily basis and more aesthetic. It was from there that Weitna was really born.
