Ehan Kamat invented and designed his product, the Solemender, an improved way of treating plantar fasciitis. He recently pitched the idea on Shark Tank, and we talk about his experience.
His product is basically a sturdy base with a roller on top to rub your foot on. The roller is detachable so you can chill it in the freezer to treat the inflammation associated with plantar fasciitus. If you’re curious what it looks like, check out https://www.solemender.com (link in the shownotes). Ehan’s got a great mind and philosophy for product design and it’s fun to hear his perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy our conversation.
