Shaun Connors has developed the MYOMITT for hand and forearm rehabilitation after a hand fracture during a boxing bout.

Shaun is in the last stages of product development and is looking for a hand therapist to review the MYOMITT in order to give feedback on the features. Shaun is based in Preston, so is ideally looking for a hand therapist in the North West, but is willing to travel.
