Levitate Above Fatigue & Stress On The Wristocat.
World’s Most Ergonomic Wrist Support.
Wristocat was a guest on the Pittsburgh TechVibe Radio broadcast. The program is available online for on demand access here.
LEVITATE ABOVE FATIGUE AND STRESS, WHILE MOVING NATURALLY.
This breakthrough reinvention of wrist support is called Wristocat. It resembles a cat and it might just add nine lives to your wrists should you spend any time working on a computer.
Wristocat is the first and only wrist support that suspends the hand and wrist with magnetic levitation, forming a therapeutic, magnetic barrier that absorbs repetitive stress and eliminates friction.
THERE IS FINALLY A CAT TO CHASE THE COMPUTER MOUSE.
Wristocat is compatible with the mouse, keyboard, touchpad or trackball you already use, making each one ergonomic. Just put Wristocat behind your favorite input device, rest your palm on the ultra plush support cradle and you are literally “good to go”.
Enjoy fluid, cat-like movement, across your entire desktop with your wrist straight and resting comfortably in a specially designed support cradle, that continually flexes, adapts and conforms to gently support your every movement.
IT’S THE ULTIMATE WRIST SUPPORT FOR ALL COMPUTER USERS.
After two years, and more than one hundred prototypes, we’ve developed the ultimate wrist support for all computer users, especially coders, gamers, designers and office staff who spend all day with their hand attached to a mouse, touchpad or keyboard.
Wristocat supports your every movement and gesture, making your time on the computer more productive, ergonomic, comfortable and enjoyable. Whether you click a mouse, tap a keyboard, gesture on a touchpad, or spend time gaming, Wristocat was created to be your hand’s best friend!
WE SPEND MORE TIME ON OUR HANDS THAN OUR FEET
You don’t need a problem to benefit from using Wristocat. In fact, Wristocat is designed to be preventative, much like wearing your favorite sneaker.
We spend more time on our hands than we do on our feet. Shouldn’t there be a wrist support that provides the same level of support, mobility, comfort and style as the shoes we wear?
OUR HANDS NEED SUPPORT AND FREEDOM TO MOVE
Our hands move, which is why static, stationary wrist support just gets in the way, causing more problems than it solves. We need a cat to chase the mouse, keyboard, and touchpad…. A wrist support so evolved, that it moves just like we do, freeing us to make all those clicks, keystrokes, gestures and motions, while providing the comfort and support we need to protect our wrists. This is exactly what we’ve done with the Wristocat.
Developed under the guidance and direction of occupational therapists and hand surgeons, Wristocat is designed to support your wrist perfectly, as it follows your every movement, large or small, without interference or impact to your existing work habits.
With Wristocat on your desk, you will enjoy unparalleled precision, comfort, ergonomics, and style with no restrictions.
CAT INSPIRED. Wristocat gets its unique name for its unmistakable cat-like appearance and its propensity to chase behind your favorite mouse, keyboard or touchpad. It is intended for all computer users, keeping your wrist perfectly aligned and your hand resting comfortably in a specially designed cradle that flexes with your every move and adapts to both your body and your work style.
“Wristocat is definitely sexy. I like the sleekness of the product – it reminds me of an Apple Product” –Donna Michele Baxter, CEO / founder of Soul Pitt Media

SILVER LININGS IN EVERY CLOUD
Wristocat is the silver lining in a painful, repetitive stress injury (RSI), suffered first hand by designer and founder, Dave Luciew. Out of his experience, and after being dissatisfied with the pads and pillows that dominate the market, Dave was determined to reinvent wrist support with a preventative solution able to address the multidimensional needs of the human hand. After two years of design, development and testing, the result is Wristocat.
WORKING TOWARD A COMPLETE SOLUTION. Wristocat was conceived, crafted and designed in the tech-savvy Pittsburgh region over two years of research and development. After undergoing wrist surgery in 2013, company founder, David Luciew and his team have been working toward a solution that would eliminate the repetitive stress that can harm your wrists, seeking a way to support every movement while keeping the hand perfectly supported.
It was no easy task, requiring more than 100 prototypes to design and perfect the breakthrough that would become the Wristocat. “I would not settle for anything less than a total solution every bit as thoughtful, elegant, functional, and innovative as the other, well designed products we all have on our desks.” –Dave Luciew, Founder
RAMPING UP TO MASS PRODUCTION. Now, this cat-inspired, beautifully sculpted magnetic levitation device is poised to be manufactured in the U.S.A., bringing all-day wrist comfort and precision to everyone from PC gamers, computer coders and web designers to office professionals. All that stands in its way is a demonstrated market interest and start-up capital necessary to get Wristocat’s American production lines rolling.

Wristocat team meets with QVC Buyers
Dave Luciew, Outside QVC headquarters in August 2015.
We met with one of QVC’s top buyers in August 2015 to demo our functional prototype. Even with Wristocat still in the pre-production phase, we were offered holiday air time in which to introduce Wristocat in the month of December. The buyer connected with our product and story, noting Wristocat’s size, design, unique features, branding, and price point as elements that appeal to their audience.
QVC is on hold until we are able to raise enough capital to manufacture the product.
Wristocat was featured in the Sunday Tribune Democrat Business section.
