Don't let the pain hold you back
80% of adults suffer from back pain sooner or later in life. In most cases, it’s recurring pain that is felt each and every day. Neck and shoulder problems are also very common, as approximately 50% of us suffer from neck and shoulder pain. Even more alarming is that even younger people are starting to show symptoms of back, neck and shoulder problems.
Poor flexibility and tight muscles are largely to blame for these types of pains and postural problems. Increasing mobility and releasing tight muscles through dynamic stretching can provide relief for common problems like knee pain, shin splints and tight hip flexors and glutes.
The HighRoller team knows that living an active lifestyle and staying healthy is important to you. So, we’re here to help you avoid these problems from manifesting in the first place. HighTrainer allows you to enjoy life by relieving tension in the muscles and trigger points. You need your body ready for anything: whether it’s a long day at work, a long workout, or a long game playing your favorite sport. A few 5-minute sessions a week with HighTrainer is enough to keep you going and help you recover faster.
Santeri loved the physicality and competition that rugby brought into his life. His passion for the sport led him to achieving the highest honor in Finland when he was selected to represent his native country on the Finish National Rugby Team. Unfortunately, a sixth concussion ruined him from moving forward with his dream of competing internationally and benched Santeri’s rugby career for good in 2013.
“It’s an awful feeling. … You have done it so many years and I felt like I was losing everything in my life,” Santeri recalled.
Although, Santeri’s rugby career was behind him, some of the body pain he struggled with was not. As Santeri remained active through power lifting, he found that his upper back was plagued with pain. Determined to not let another injury sideline an active passion, he decided to invent his own solution in the HighTrainer.
Like rugby, victory didn’t come easy and he learned quickly that it would require a team to successfully accomplish his invention. Santeri’s experience as an owner/engineer in successfully launching products like the HighRoller and HighBaller were a great asset to him. From the HighBaller, which is designed to massage the neck and back, he learned how effective the balls could be in hitting muscle trigger points. He put holes through the balls in order to attach an exercise band that brought the HighTrainer to life.
Santeri’s first initiative was to develop the HighTrainer so the exercise band can be put around a chair so it could reach muscle trigger points in the back while sitting at a computer or driving a car. A lock system allows this to be possible as the function enables people to multi-task while loosening tight muscles and fascia.
While the HighTrainer can serves a healer, it can also be used as a training tool as well. Resistance exercises and dynamic stretching for the arms, back, chest and legs are products of the HighTrainer’s multi-functional use. The portability of the HighTrainer allows it to easily fit inside a computer bag, backpack or training bag.
If you are looking for a solution to upper back pain or an exercise tool that can save time and money, the HighTrainer is the answer you are looking for.

In the Summer of 2018, we launched our second successful crowdfunding campaign with the third product of the HighRoller line: HighHealer. It's the world's first portable 5-in-1 foot care device which allows you to exercise areas of the foot, ankle and calf not only in less time, but more effectively.
The HighHealer campaign was a big success and we raised over $125k. The campaign ended in September 2018 and our manufacturer has just started to produce the units. We will be able to start shipping earlier than we promised in the campaign, thanks to the support of our many backers!
In July of 2017, we launched our first Kickstarter campaign with our second product HighBaller. It's the world's first rotating massage balls on width adjustable stand. HighBaller helps to loosen up stiff, tight muscles. The product is mainly used for trigger points and for that reason it includes Trigger Point Map. The map shows you 30 common trigger points and their referred pain areas.
The HighBaller campaign was a big success and we raised over $100 000. It took us only 3 months after the campaign ended to ship units for the backers. For us, it is very important to keep our backers satisfied and to help people to live pain-free.
In 2015 we launched our first product called HighRoller. It is an innovative foam roller that spins around an axle on a height adjustable stand. The stand lets you foam roll in ergonomic and more effective positions by allowing you to relax while rolling and by focusing all the pressure on the muscle.
HighRoller quickly gained popularity in Finland, receiving the award for best sports product of the year in 2015.
HighRoller® Finland Ltd. was established in 2015 and is owned by six entrepreneurs who all come from a sports background. The company manufactures products for personal muscle care in Finland.
We have been working with our manufacturer for over 2 years now, Manufacturer has a long and successful track record of producing high-quality plastic products. Together with the Manufacturer, we have produced the first prototype of Trainer and have already put together production plans for when we reach our target.

Risks and challenges
We are excited to launch our 3rd successful crowdfunding campaign and to make your life more enjoyable! The last campaign HighHealer ended a month ago and we just got the first units from our Finnish manufacturer. This means that we will be able to deliver the products again in time.
With our first campaign HighBaller, we started deliveries a month earlier than we we promised and this was possible by help of 1700 lovely backers. As a Finnish company, we love honesty and being in time and that's why we work extra hard to keep you backers happy.
We have tested several materials and techniques over time to create the product to suit the needs of our customers. We have also received feedback from several professionals and now we can confidently say that we have designed the best possible product for you.
With our network, we can ensure a worldwide delivery of our products.
We anticipate being able to ship orders in Jan-Feb 2019 but if the number of orders exceeds our expectations, it might take slightly longer to fulfill the orders.
