Something to relieve the pain in your neck!
Many jobs, which involve looking up for a long time, like painting, plumbing, etc. could be a pain in the neck, literally. However, a new product called Necprotech developed by a New Zealand inventor Darrell Poole could help reduce neck strain by a third.

The product was developed by Darrell Poole who makes clinging to a rock wall look easy, but a slip five years ago could have cost him his life. The slip happened because his belayer, the person whose job it is to keep the safety rope taut, had stopped looking up, due to the strain on his neck. Following this episode, Darrell Poole developed the product along with his company Promax, which is tested by the Otago University and works for anyone who has to spend a long time looking up including those in the construction sector.

The idea and the product, though patented, are yet to make an impact in the many safety retailers market, where it has been already been distributed, as the makers have not been able to convince people to use it.
