SOLEMENDER® was invented at the age of twelve by Ehan Kamat.  

After watching his mother roll a  frozen toy on her foot to alleviate foot pain, he learned that the medical community often recommends freezing a water bottle and rolling the sole of the foot on it to treat foot pain such as plantar fasciitis.

Ehan, a lifelong idea guy, thought that a refreezable roller with a nonskid base would be a more effective, less messy alternative than a frozen water bottle. 
Ehan prototyped his invention at home then, with the assistance of his father went on to submit a patent on the SOLEMENDER® (pending).  

The name SOLEMENDER® is derived from the first act of the play JULIUS CAESAR by William Shakespeare where a cobbler claims to be “a mender of bad soles”.  

The SOLEMENDER® is an exciting new way to treat plantar fasciitis pain.
Ehan hopes that his idea will help relieve pain in millions of people suffering from this condition.

Ehan is a member of Independent Youth, a national teen entrepreneurship empowerment organization.
