About the brand
Plankpad is an app-connected core trainer that combines games with workouts on your iPhone and Android. Since joining Amazon Launchpad in February 2020, their units sold increased by 4x in just twelve months.*
Behind the brand
Plankpad founder, Andre Reinegger, was inspired to design the product after unsuccessfully relieving his back pain through existing therapies and medications. He created the first Plankpad product in 2018, a balance board that combines working out with the fun of playing games. David Cervenka, Chief Strategist, joined the company in 2019, excited by the gamification of the design that makes exercising fun for the whole family. Since then, Plankpad has launched internationally, was honored with the German Design Award, and won the German Innovation Award from the German Design Council.
“It’s important to have the best Amazon listing possible from day one and Amazon Launchpad provides benefits that help improve listing quality. If you’re invited to join the program, do it!”Andre ReineggerFounder, Plankpad
