The artist Irene Grahn works with her hands and fingers and therefore, she became concerned when she got rheumatism. With bent and crippled fingers, she would have to give up her work.

To prevent her fingers from becoming crooked she had to come up with something that would prevent it. After many hours of experimenting she came up with the idea of a ring to support her fingers. A silversmith made it in silver for her.

After being asked to make more rings so others could use them as well, she took out a patent for it in 1992 and started her company Rörlighet.
