Vertiball | The World's First Mobile Mounting Massager

CA$ 61,357

 Stop and take a big deep breath. How does your back feel? And your neck? If you're constantly in pain, it's hard to focus on anything.


We've been there--constantly doing a dance of stretches and getting in crazy positions on the corner of our desks and couches just to get some relief.

Massage is great but getting one every day costs a fortune, and asking your spouse to do it gets tired after weeks of asking.

Highlights 

  •  Mountable lock on wall at any height
  •  Portable enough to slip in your bag and take anywhere
  •  Precise so it hits that painful spot right away
  •  Control lets you decide how much pressure to apply.
     
  •  Accessible so relief doesn’t depend on physical ability.
     

Our patented suction mounting system can affix itself to surfaces that other suction cups can't:

 Our patent-pending mounting system can easily be mounted and easily taken off.

Before Vertiball there were only two ways of mounting something to a wall (adhesives & screws) - both of which cause damage was and were made to be permanent--no good for an office space or an apartment.

Because it works on porous surfaces like your wall, Vertiball is truly special. It took countless hours and 220 new designs to make this product what it is today.

While there are other high-strength suction cups available for industrial purposes, there is simply nothing like the Vertiball.

From massage balls to electric massagers, there are countless personal muscle care products that exist. But whether your rolling on the ground, pinning up against a wall or twisting to reach behind your back, an individual's technique is a key factor (or hindrance) in their success.

How are results supposed to be trackable and repeatable on a mass scale when results depend on technique and mobility?

If personal muscle care is ever going to have a net positive contribution towards the reduction of back pain worldwide, then technique and mobility need to be eliminated from the equation. Vertiball’s precision and ease of use make it so that a 70-year-old can use it as easily and effectively as a 20-year-old can which is why I truly believe it can become the most important muscle care product in history.

If we educate ourselves and work with our physician to develop strategic pressure patterns, it is a tool that can change our lives. I know that it has changed mine.

 Key Features
 

 You take it with you anywhere (although it won’t be much good in the woods without modern infrastructure)

Tense muscles are unpredictable. So you should be able to alleviate the pain anytime, at any place.

The best thing about Vertiball is how effortless it makes alleviating specific tense muscles. If you are at the office in the middle of a busy day, are you going to get down on the ground and roll your whole back out? No probably not.

That’s why no one does it and why back pain continues to be one of our worlds most common health problems.

It is so easy and so simple you can send emails or drink a coffee while you lean into it. You never need to go a long day with sore muscles again.

The product that we are releasing first is what we consider to be the Vertiball "standard package."

It comes with the 360-degree precision ball attachment which was seen as the "jack of all trades attachment" when we asked our friends and family.

By purchasing a Vertiball and supporting, you're not just getting a mountable massager--you're giving us the resources to produce even more attachments for our amazing suction device, and you'll be able to take part in deciding what the next add-ons will be!

We can't wait to show you what we have in store.

 When it comes to mounting something to a household wall, there has only ever been two options:

1. Use a double-sided adhesive (permanent)

2. Drill into the wall (permanent) The suction cups that the consumer market is familiar with are made of stiff acrylics and can stick to perfectly smooth surfaces like glass or a shower.

We have developed an industrial grade suction cup system that is capable of mounting to sealed porous surfaces such as (painted drywall, painted plasterboard etc..) which gives our products the ability to be mounted almost anywhere while still giving them the portability aspect that is needed for an everyday product.

 We are launching our standard product with the ball attachment only.

We are offering the ability to buy one of our future massage-related attachments coming soon, and by backing us early you'll be able to take part in deciding what we make next (not to mention getting a huge discount on the next add-on).

 First products will begin shipping late April 2019. See the shipping costs here:

The product has been in development for 1.5 years while I was working on my Mechanical Engineering Degree. We have arrived at a final design (V220) and commenced the tooling process for our plastic injection molds September 24th 2018.

See our molds below:

 We know you're concerned about shipping times, and you've lost trust in many Kickstarter campaigns for delivering late or not at all.


We're so confident in our product, if we don't deliver within 6 months of launch, we'll give everyone a second Vertiball free.

Risks and challenges

We’ve built Vertiball to minimize risk. Our parts are simple to make, giving us a large pool of potential manufacturers and suppliers to choose from. That, coupled with our team’s background in product design and engineering gives us confidence in our timeline. We’re so confident in this promise that if we don’t deliver in 6 months, every Kickstarter backer will receive a free Vertiball.

We know how important communication is and we pledge to be open and transparent with you to the best of our abilities. We commit to resolving issues as rapidly as is feasible given the circumstances and resources available. We need your help to grow the project and fulfill our mission of helping deliver better muscle care and we are incredibly appreciative and humbled by your support.
