About The MetaFlex Therapy Glove
The MetaFlex Therapy Glove is a grip strengthening compression glove designed to help you manage the painful symptoms of arthritis affordably and effectively.
We’ve designed this glove to increase your grip strength, improve blood circulation, and reduce pain all while you do your everyday activities.
Our glove works in two ways, first, the compression fabric increases blood flow and reduces pain, second, our innovative resistance-band-like elastic bands work to keep your hand open. This means whenever you type on your computer or grab a glass of water, you’re working against the bands and strengthening your grip! These bands are also fully customizable so you can adjust them to the level most comfortable to you and increase the resistance as you get stronger.
The inspiration for the MetaFlex Therapy Glove came from an educational trip to Cuba with our university. There we noticed how widely spread arthritis is and how little access the community there has to help. We wanted to develop a way for people to be able to manage their arthritic symptoms affordably and at-home.
After returning, we began further developing and patenting
the MetaFlex Therapy Glove. We raised awareness and funds by competing in pitch competitions. First, winning 1st place in TnTech’s Eagle Works Pitch Competition and then placing 3rd at Launch TN’s 36|86 Student Pitch Competition
Currently, we are finalizing out prototypes to bring the
MetaFlex to production and to helping the people who need it.
