Dr. Jason partners with serial entrepreneur Benjamin Nazarian to form TheraGun, LLC in March and officially launched the TheraGun G1. The new online store was created in June, and product began shipping in July.
Dr. Jason shared the beta G1 with USC training room and the Oakland Raiders as a testing facility for the beta G1. He then began selling G1’s to professional athletes/clients for feedback. Later prototypes gained so much popularity in the industry that Dr. Jason decided further scale and infrastructure was inevitable.
Dr. Jason flew to Boston and introduced the G1 product to the New England Patriots. This was TheraGun's first big sale. The team bought two and the players bought 20 units of what was a beta version at the time.
Dr. Jason experimented with three different designs looking for the most ergonomic and effective product. Met with manufacture to make what eventually became the G1. Designs were also "borrowed" during this time by a couple of other entities. TheraGun manufactured 400 units in the beta stage to share and test in different environments. No one imagined that the product would be as well received as it was.
After selling 250 beta units and asking for feedback from customers, chiropractors, and physical therapists on what a perfect device would look like, Dr. Jason began a global search for a the perfect device (something that could carry out the functions of strong percussive vibration and comfortable ergonomics) to create the desired device.
TheraGun went through a period of research and development while Dr. Jason applied the principles of vibration therapy in his chiropractic practice.
The second prototype gains momentum among the chiropractic and physical therapy circles and was applied in practice on those who needed muscle treatment such as athletes and active individuals.
Dr. Jason Wersland, D.C., develops the first prototype for a handheld device that administers powerful vibration therapy. Formulated at the intersection of Dr. Jason’s experience as a practicing chiropractor and of his own injury recovery needs, the first TheraGun was born.
Dr. Jason was in a motorcycle accident resulting in a severe disc extrusion in his neck. Severe pain and atrophy as a result from the extrusion.
