Like no other I know how annoying it is when you have hand/wrist problems. In 2006 I had a serious wrist injury after improper treatment and surgery. At that time I was co-owner of a graphic production company, but I couldn't keep that up anymore and I quit.
In 2010, I started a new company together with my physiotherapist and we introduced our own brand of kinesiology tape to the market: Textape (now known as 3NS Tex tape). At the fairs we were at, I got a lot of demand for the brace and sling I wore myself (and imported from America). In 2014, we also started the Handletselhop and started selling, among other things, those braces and other products that are useful in use for hand/wrist injuries. Mostly unique products, which we also had manufactured ourselves. My practical experience of whether something is handy or not comes in handy here!
There was already more demand from abroad for certain articles. And the name Handletselshop appeared to be unpronounceable for foreigners... In 2018 we therefore started an internationally oriented webshop under the name Mebocare.
One of our products is the Wristwidget® TFCC brace. The WristWidget is a brace that works very efficiently with a TFCC Läsion. Since 2006 this little splint (in combination with the treatment plan) has healed many TFCC tears
without surgery. For its promotion we visited fairs and conferences in various countries. In 2021 we officially became the European Representative for the WristWidget® TFCC brace and we now supply this Wrist Widget to all European countries.
