Helge: There was some interesting information about, "In USA alone over 1,4 million people suffer from some form of repetitive motion disorder as the result of working environment."

CTS diagnosis has been made easier, faster and is costing less with the handheld Mediracer. This tool has been available in Europe for a few years. We're looking for people world wide that would like to sell this device to e.g. occupational health specialists, medical doctors, orthopedics, and hospitals specializing in hand surgery.
