04 September 2009
Salts Techstep with help from West Bromwich Albion Football Club have successfully trialled HydroHeel.
Trial carried out by Stuart Elwell BSc (HONS) MSOM MACPSM MAACP Physiotherapist, West Bromwich Albion Football Club
Location: 5-a-side football tournament, Germany, January 2009
All West Bromwich Albion players wore HydroHeel hydrocolloids in a 5-a-side football tournament. On day one the players participated in three 12-minute games on sports hall flooring, a surface they do not usually train or play on. All players were wearing either new or practically new shoes.
HydroHeel was re-applied for each remaining day of the tournament. None of the players reported blisters during the tournament and the team finished a creditable second place.
