The tagline goes, “Use it anywhere, anytime, on the spot.”
This probably would seem cliche for any many products but what about for a portable electrotherapy machine? That is what Taiwan startup U-GYM is offering.
Mark Yu (余福浩), founder and CEO of U-GYM, says that rest and maintenance after working out is actually more important than doing the exercise.
U-GYM helps people massage and relax their muscles right after working out to prevent injuries, and is as effective as receiving electrotherapy at a chiropractor. It is also one of the startups showcasing in TechCrunch Disrupt NY this year.
