The Rhino Roller was born out of true necessity by Co-Owner Brandon Selvaggio. In 2008, he was hit by a drunk driver in a head-on car accident that left him bed-ridden for nearly six months. His back pain was so excruciating, he was forced to crawl around his house. Mr. Selvaggio was frustrated with the lack of progress made during physical therapy. He even met with some of the world’s top doctors at the Cleveland Clinic, but wasn’t convinced that their proposed surgery was the best option.
