In 2010, David Barnett was looking for a way to stop his earbud cord from getting tangled, and he achieved this by gluing two buttons to the back of his phone and wrapping the earbud cord around the buttons. As ugly as the buttons were, they worked. In the course of improving on the idea, he developed about 60 different prototypes, making the buttons expand and collapse via an accordion mechanism, so that they could function as both a stand and a grip. In 2012, Barnett launched a KickStarter campaign for an iPhone case that would have two PopSockets grips integrated into the case. Two years later, in 2014, Barnett launched the business out of his garage in Boulder, Colorado, and has subsequently sold over 40 million PopSockets grips around the world. PopSockets is proud to support the Arthritis Foundation's Let's Get a Grip Program to help people with arthritis everywhere live happier lives. To learn more about how PopSockets makes gripping your phone more fashionable, comfortable, and secure, visit www.popsockets.com.

NASA chemist Phil Birbara had helped crack the code on creating drinkable water and breathable air to help humans survive in space. But his real dream was to find ways to help people live healthier and longer here on Earth. Phil’s physician brother Charlie Birbara, and business-visionary Milt Peterson, challenged Phil to turn his good science and goodwill into good medicine. And Vizuri (the Swahili word for ‘well’) Health Sciences was born. Launched in 2009, Vizuri develops and markets new and innovative OTC and pharmaceutical products. The products use patented, proprietary formulations that help make natural and pharmaceutical ingredients work better. Vizuri is developing prescription-strength, capsaicin products that are being evaluated in a US clinical study for the relief of osteoarthritic knee pain. Vizuri recently launched PainBloc24®, the first OTC topical analgesic that can help provide 24-hour arthritis pain relief with as little as one application every day. It is made with the highest concentration of the naturally-occurring analgesic, capsaicin, allowed by the FDA without a prescription. Vizuri’s capsaicin products are promising safer, non-addictive alternatives to opioids, steroids, and NSAIDs for the management of arthritis pain. PainBloc24® can be found at fine drug and grocery stores nationwide and at www.PainBloc24.com.
