Developing and Marketing novel Footcare products

Pellitec is a novel blister prevention pad. Its unique six layer sandwich construction and gel technology reduces the friction which causes foot blisters. Rather than sticking to the foot the pad sticks to the inside of footwear where the user thinks a blister could develop. The pad also speeds up the healing of existing blisters by reducing pressure and wicking away moisture from the blister site reducing the risk of infection. The pad can be removed and reapplied several times in different areas of the footwear as required.

What prompted you to develop it?

The large majority of footcare products on the market are for treatment rather than prevention. The inventors wanted to develop and market an innovative product which truly prevented blisters and helped already formed ones to heal well. Longer term the product will be of use in diabetics in whom blisters can lead to serious complications.

Is it in production or use?

The product will be available from May 2019.

Who inspires you?

People who can see a problem or gap in the market and come up with novel, cost effective solutions.

What do you hope to achieve in developing this innovation?

To help sportspeople, walkers, the military and anyone who may or does suffer from blisters have an effective, preventative and affordable way of being pain free.
