Carpal tunnel syndrome – 91% of our patients would recommend curpal®

Contents

curpal® is one of the so-called manual therapies for carpal tunnel syndrome and is considered a promising addition to conservative therapy options. Because curpal® is a completely new treatment approach for which there are no studies yet, we asked our customers about their satisfaction. 297 responded – here are the numbers.

In total, we surveyed around 350 customers between October 2020 and March 2021 and received 297 responses, including 63% women and 37% men.

When asked about the duration of use, 46% said they had used curpal® for 4 weeks, 51% stated a period of use of 6 weeks, and the rest treated for 8 weeks or longer. It is important to know that the minimum duration of use should be 6 weeks.

If the symptoms are more severe or have been present for a longer period of time, it may take longer for the symptoms to subside.

How do you rate the handling?

We also asked our customers how they rate the handling of the cuff . Here are the results:

How often have you used curpal®?

The recommendation for the use of curpal® is 3 x 3 x 3, which means three times a day, for example in the morning, at lunchtime and in the evening, three times three minutes of treatment in a row with a short break in between. Two thirds of the users implemented this recommendation, one third treated less frequently. This group included most of the patients who felt that the treatment did not meet their expectations.

How old were the users?

In addition to age, we were also interested in the answer to the question of how users found curpal® in the first place. Our suspicions were confirmed here: 91% found curpal® during their research on the Internet, 2% were recommended the device by friends; 2% were recommended curpal® by a doctor or therapist, and another 5% became aware of the new method through newspapers and magazines.

Would you recommend curpal®?

“Yes, I would recommend curpal® without reservation,” said 67% of those treated, 24% gave a recommendation with reservations and only 9% were apparently not convinced and would rather not recommend the cuff. We think this is a really good result and an incentive for further improvements.
