The Co-Founder of Smart Tools, Nick Colosi, DC, developed our IASTM tools while he was a student in chiropractic school. About half way through school, he developed Golfer's elbow. He was treated with all different types of manual therapy to no avail. Then an intern at the school's student clinic decided to treat him with IASTM and his conditioned resolved within a week. Motivated by this, he sought out education and IASTM tools. At the time, one would have to pay close to $3000 for the education and tool combination. Frustrated by this, he set out to design and produce his own.
His father and uncle (co-founders of Smart Tools as well) both had been in the steel manufacturing and fabrication business for a combined 60 years. So Nick sought them out to manufacture and produce his IASTM tool designs. After 2 years of development and testing, the result is the highest quality, most ergonomic, and affordable IASTM tools on the market today.
Smart Tools has developed the most innovative IASTM education on the market, and with the most knowledgeable and dynamic instructors in the world, we can proudly say the next generation of IASTM has arrived.
