For over 15 years I have seen numerous chiropractors, and physical therapists who have administered message, ultrasound, acupuncture, yoga,and you name it to try to eliminate the pain and limited range of motion in my left shoulder. Still I found myself waking up every night in pain from rolling over and trying to sleep on the wrong side.
After using the Wonderweight a few minutes two to three times a day for about two weeks I regained full range of motion and no more shoulder pain. I have since backed down to five minutes, once a day. For the last ten months I have enjoyed the benefits of no more shoulder pain and normal sleeping habits.
Thank You Wonderweight.

My tendinitis was pretty much eliminated .....
In January 2006 I was unemployed and on disability from Tendinitis in my right forearm, and could not work as a massage therapist. I was under a doctor's care for severe arm pain for some 3 months before it was suggested to try the invention, Wonderweight. I experienced some pain initially, however, after about six weeks, my tendinitis was pretty much eliminated and I returned to work. It was the only reason I was able to return to work as a massage therapist.

Regarding the Wonderweight - my carpel tunnel syndrome has improved about 80% since I started using it!

I suffered three strokes in July 2007 so the Wonderweight device is perfect for me to use for exercise. As a talk therapist myself I am always looking for objects I can use. I had the chance to work with the Wonderweight for a few weeks so I asked my physical and occupational therapist if the Wonderweight would be good for me. They did work it in my daily routines.
I am especially interested because it tightened up the muscle in the right arm since having the strokes. I can lift my right arm much better, but I still need more exercise on my right side.
I hope the Wonderweight becomes available soon to clients.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had four surgeries in nine months, finally resulting in mastectomy. When I got the Wonderweight in Spring of 2005, I was attempting to heal after the mastectomy. I tried to use the weight, but my body was taking time to heal. Also, a major muscle had also been removed (I think pectoralis major), leaving me with very little muscle mass in my chest. After several weeks of healing, I tried to use the weight again. I found that I could move it with both hands, I got tired too quickly if using only my left arm and hand. So I continued to use it in that fashion; not every day, but intermittently (I admit that I am not the most regular person with any exercise!). I noticed that with some time, my body seemed to adjust and compensate for the lost muscle and tissue. I regained my range of motion (assisted by yoga), much more quickly and almost completely. My yoga teacher was very curious about my rapid progress, and when I told her about the Wonderweight, she was fascinated. She works a lot with older people in recovery homes. My progress remains a strong testimony to the beneficial effects of the Wonderweight. I believe it moves the chi which in turn helps the overall recovery and healing process, activating the self-healing mechanism of the body.
I wish you all the success you so richly deserve. May this invention bless you and bless the world!!

I have used just about every kind of device there is to use to rehabilitate injured and recovering bodies and I believe the Wonderweight is one of the most creative and functional pieces of equipment for rehabilitation I have seen. I would highly recommend it.

Wonderweight Test Period after Shoulder Surgery Ron Trucksess 45 Years Old Activities: Semi Pro Baseball and Weight Training
Shoulder surgery was performed in Vermont on three full thickness tears of Rotator Cuff muscles on November 3, 2004. Projected text book recovery was eight to ten months for 80% recovery and 12 months or more for possible full recovery depending on factors involved.
Wonderweight testing began January 15, 2005. Initial test was using the WW in the (Basic) one hand position using one ten ounce weight on each end for ten minutes.
By day three increasing resistance by adding a second ten ounce weight to each end for fifteen minutes.
By the end of the fourth day of testing the shoulder stretch back to throw motion increased by an astounding 30 degrees. Resistance was then increased by adding a third ten ounce weight to each end for two ten to fifteen minute intervals. Testing and exercising with the three weights on each end continued until mid February.
I began to throw mid February with shocking accuracy and continued throwing using the Wonderweight daily. I started the season on time at the end of April.
Notes: I did notice and feel an unusual sense of unison in the muscles as I began to test the WW. It seemed as if all the muscles were firing at the same time and working in conjunction with each other as the WW weights were revolving.
This a tremendous breakthrough in shoulder rehabilitation because one of the major issues in therapy after shoulder surgery is to retrain the reattached muscles. I am convinced as a working subject with shoulder surgery that the WW had achieved a faster recovery time by working the muscles together in a uniform way. This leads me to project that the WW will ultimately change the course and direction for shoulder surgery rehabilitation. Ron Trucksess, Vermont
