How did you come up with the idea for this product?
The idea for Rollga all began when Taggart was in his 30s running marathons. While training, Taggart began suffering from shin splints and a resurgence of back pain that initially began after a car accident he was involved in several years earlier. Taggart was recommended to begin foam rolling and shortly after was blown away by how much it helped his pain. There was only one issue. The foam rollers Taggart was using were traditional flat foam rollers which made it incredibly difficult for him to reach and target the areas on his shins and back that needed attention. Thus, with Taggart’s background as a Physicist, he began to research the various types of foam rollers available. Taggart invested in every foam roller he could find and began documenting the pros and cons. He found that the basic design of the foam roller had not changed and that most rollers are flat while our bodies are not – hence the ‘curves’ of Rollga were born to better fit the human body thru an engineers mind.
What makes your product special?
The unique design of the Rollga creates so many advantages over the traditional foam roller. The contours of the Rollga not only fit the body’s natural curves for a more comfortable rolling experience, they also allow the user to target muscles with precise, targeted pressure while avoiding bone and tendon. The Rollga Foam Roller also is essentially a three-in-one tool. The inner ribs of the Rollga are similar in use to the pinpoint pressure of a lacrosse ball, the outer ribs are similar to the pressure of a softball, and the groves provide the functionality of a traditional flat foam roller (but with added angles of pressure).
What has been the best part of your experience?
We’ve had so many great moments and memorable milestones throughout our journey, but the most special highlights have always been hearing the stories of how we’ve helped people relieve pain, restore movement, and/or get back to a life without nagging discomfort.
