The concept behind PelliTec® was first developed because the inventors could not find an effective blister treatment amongst those available in High Street Chemists. They wanted a product which would reduce friction and eliminate the risk of blisters forming.
Foot blisters are caused by skin rubbing against a static surface like the inside of a shoe, boot or trainer. This friction causes the skin layers to separate and fill with fluid. The unique and breathable sandwich construction of PelliTec® moves with your foot significantly reducing the friction which causes blisters.
By sticking securely to the inside of your footwear and over the blister, the PelliTec® pad works to cushion and protect the affected area wicking away moisture thereby reducing pressure, pain and the risk of infection.
