The idea: If you have a headache or migraine, attaching the WunderClip to your hand will make your pain disappear in 5 to 15 minutes, says its creator.
As shown in the diagram, you have to stick the clip between your thumb and forefinger, which the website calls the “LI4 point on the hand.”
A modern take on acupressure, the WunderClip, which costs $9.24, can supposedly cure allergies, arthritis, ear infections, and even pneumonia.
Whose idea: Charles E. Boyer
Why it’s a bomb: Several Business Insider staffers tried on the WunderClip and were not impressed.
The most common complaint was that it was too difficult to squeeze on (think of a really tight clamp). Once on, it was too uncomfortable to wear for more than two minutes without getting thumb cramps.
If this works at all, it’s because it distracts you from the pain in your head and makes you focus on the pain in your hand instead.
