Release417 was the result of René’s frustration with his RLS symptoms. Nothing seemed to help, and the restlessness, pain and exhaustion remained. There just had to be a solution that would really make a difference. The idea for the Release417 was born one night when the RLS in René’s legs started up again. The restlessness, frustration, and uneasy feeling caused him to have thoughts such as ‘this leg has got to come off’. He had a prototype of the Release417 laying on his bedside table and put this around his leg… and behold, his leg settled down, no more trembling, jerking or unpleasant feelings inside. This couldn’t be happening. Or could it?
In the time after this event, he shared his findings, and then took the prototype of the Release417 with him to a sleep clinic and had himself tested. Without saying a word to the staff, René took the prototype with him into the sleep exam room, various sensors attached to his legs. He hoped that it would happen that night. Sure enough, his leg started to tremble and at 4:17, he put the Release417 on his leg. The next day, he took a look at the results, together with the physician. When René asked the physician to look at the 4:17 mark on the graph, the doctor gave him a strange look. ‘What’s going on?’ he asked. That was the moment René knew for sure that the Release417 had done what it was supposed to do, and just had to be sold on the market.
