Inventor tackles wrist pain

From a young age, Wendy Medeiros “wanted to be a doctor and contribute to the knowledge of the human body.”

In 2006, while working at a rehabilitation clinic on Oahu, Hawaii, she met a patient with non-functional wrists, Medeiros told Pacific Business News by email. Shortly after, she patented the idea of WristWidget, a wrist splint for those suffering from wrist pain, and quickly learned to sew.

To date, WristWidget – made on Hawaii Island – has sold more than 1.2 million products worldwide.
