MY STORY:  

I had lower back pain (like 31 Million Americans) and tried all kinds of meds and therapy but the sciatic pain was so severe I needed back surgery to fuse my L4-L5 vertebrae to relieve the pain. 

Then months in a back brace and weeks of physical therapy, I recognized that non-extreme exercises combined with light hand-held weights worked best to strengthen my core, build up my strength, endurance and lose weight too.

But then my doctors sent me home to continue exercising with just a yoga mat and stretch band... that wasn't enough... I wanted real exercise equipment. But I didn't want to spend over $600 on 18-20 pieces of equipment. So I used my Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Drafting skills to create the versatile (20-in-1) Trans4mer!

Here's how the Trans4mer has evolved over the last few years:

HOW TRANS4MER WORKS:

The Trans4mer opens and closes like a Clam-Shell:

  • Unsnap the (2) Elastic Safety Straps (Finger Loop for ease-of-use) The Snap Grommets are heavy duty industrial grade for secure closure and a tight fit. Then, on its side, just open the Trans4mer
  • Weighted Discs and Handle/Discs are Specially Coated to lightly stick together for safety and ease-of-alignment. The Discs and Handle/Discs stack on the Alignment Safety Shaft.
  • Simply add / remove a number of Discs and Handle/Disc to your desired weight resistance and handle configuration (0, 1 or 2). Close the Trans4mer and re-snap the (2) Elastic Safety Straps. 

Note: The combination of Alignment Safety Shaft, Special Coating and Elastic Safety Straps will tightly secure the Trans4mer closed and ready for any exercise.

See the following video for a demonstration of all (5) handle configurations and (4) weights = (20) combinations in (1) device:

Risks and challenges

We have worked extremely hard to prepare the Trans4mer for this campaign and production, but there are always some risks:

Creating the tooling to manufacture the Trans4mer requires expert knowledge to get it right. There is typically a 45-day lead time to create the molds and tooling and this is where delays could occur. To minimize that possibility we're working to add additional manufacturers partners.

As the Trans4mer gets geared up for production, there may be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Several pre-production prototypes have been made to test and refine the product and allow us to incorporate adjustments and suggestions by our manufacturing partners and nationwide user group of professional trainers.

Sometimes things don't go as planned and to minimize the possibility of setbacks we will enter the manufacturing stage with at back-up plan for each major component. We will be working with our proven vendors to manufacture the Trans4mer in sufficient quantities to meet the growing demand.

Our overall goal is to make the best possible product for you, our Trans4mer customer.

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us make the Trans4mer by clicking the "Back This Project" button at the top of the page and by spreading the word and sharing our page.
