A look behind the scenes
Hi, my name is Maurice Calmano, I am a sports scientist and founder of Triggerdinger. At the beginning, my goal was just to develop a tool for my own use. In particular, shoulder impingement was a big issue with me personally, which I could treat more specifically with myself and clients in personal training. Over time, the demand among friends and acquaintances grew. So why not start a company?
Gude, I'm Felix Wendt and the 3D printing expert of the two of us. In 2018, Maurice approached me and wanted me to print something for him to use in his training sessions. I didn't know where this was going at the time. Through the method of 3D printing, we were able to develop the optimal shape and size of the Triggerdinger, adjust them over and over again, and eventually develop prototypes, such as the Double Dude.
The origin of the Double Dude
Actually, the origin is very logical. The basis is people who know and use our products. In this case, many had the idea of a double Triggerding or a product what you can use on the spine. Finally, it was our turn and a prototype had to be made. First, we tested the Double Dude as a team and then we expanded the circle to get feedback. The Double Dude was tweaked again and again via 3D printing to finally have the finished prototype you see in the crowdfunding video. We wanted the color to fit into our existing Triggerdinger SOFT color palette. In our opinion, the flamingo pink fits perfectly! And now for the most important part: the money. We'll tell it like it is. We want to produce the Double Dude in the quality of our newest Triggerdinger SOFT and that will be expensive. One of the most expensive things is the production of the completely new injection mold. In addition, there are material, color, production and of course the time invested so far by the entire team.
Let's get started!
Yes, the Double Dude has the same shape and head size as our popular Tschabbi Boy, only double. With it, you also benefit from its soft and flexible material. With it, you make triggering in the thoracic spine area even more comfortable and the application is completely uncomplicated. Whether at home, at work, in the office or even on the road, just lay on it and relax - find the tense spot, apply Double Dude correctly - and relax.
