Redcord AS is established under the name TrimMaster by Petter, Grete and Tore Planke. Builder and former gymnast Kåre Mosberg was the inventor of the patented device. When Petter Planke founded the company he had been plagued by repeated acute back problems for over 20 years. After consulting physiotherapists at Sentrum Fysikalske in Asker and contacting Dr. Odd Kogstad at Aust-Agder Sentralsykehus, he saw the potential in the invention as a tool in physical therapy and as training equipment in the home for the prevention of back pain and retroactive ailments. Petter Planke is living proof that the training works: his back is strong and pain-free. Tore Planke has always been responsible for the technical development and the company’s patents.
