Founder – VESA KOSKELA
I discovered that my foot had changed after I experimented with my invention StretchPower, which was 2008. It took six years before I developed a treatment method that I could test on subjects with success.
Now I have created a treatment method called PRONATOS which is unique and very effective on all ailments related to the arch not working normally and the big toe not bending when walking. The big toe is stiff and does not come up when walking, which leads to the windlass system not working, i.e. the arch of the foot that is to be pulled up with the help of the upward bending of the big toe does not work. The windlass system is the vital function of our foot and has to give support, or the foot will be overstressed and injured.
Windlass = winch. See video on the right.
I am a naprapath and a former elite athlete who has boxed in the Swedish National Team and ended my boxing career after the Olympics in Los Angeles in 1984 with 5th place. After the Olympics, I started training as a naprapath when I came up with the idea for StretchPower. I have taught at Idéum, an inventor’s camp. I have studied 40p Entrepreneurship at Stockholm University and trained as an Innovation Advisor and innovation leader at Mälardalen University.
Now I am training more naprapaths / therapists in Pronatos treatment.
See what our patients said about the treatment with PRONATOS!
PRONATOS was nominated for the Stockholm Innovation Scholarship 2017 in the category “Life Science and Health”.
PRONATOS has been granted a grant from Vinnova for further development of the PRONATOS treatment method. The aim is to develop Pronatos, an innovative automated treatment method for patients with pain in the feet, legs, knees and hips.
