Giacomo De Paoli – Dipolo

Carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by repetitive motion of the wrist tendons. The disorder mainly affects people in the manufacturing industry and those who spend long hours in front of a screen. Approximately 3-6% of the adult population suffers from it.

Dipolo is a device that helps relieve and treat the pain caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. It consists of an electrostimulation unit strapped to the arm and a stress ball made of a conductive material. By creating an electric field between the two units, it is possible to stimulate the nerve in the wrist, which is beneficial to the user. The person can actively contribute to the therapy by exercising with the custom designed ball.
