Hydration product

 

Keeping yourself hydrated has never been so simple.

 

ZERO is a refreshing sugar free electrolyte drink with zero calories. You can use ZERO during exercise and throughout the day to rehydrate with Vitamin C and key electrolytes, including sodium and magnesium. Simply drop a tab into your re-usable water bottle and watch it rapidly dissolve. The tabs contain light natural flavours with no artificial colours or preservatives. The easy-break tabs mean that you can choose your ideal drink strength.

 

This scientific formula includes Vitamin C to support a healthy immune system, protect cells from oxidative stress and reduce tiredness and fatigue¹. The magnesium in ZERO contributes to electrolyte balance, whilst also supporting muscle protein synthesis2.

 

With a light non-sweet taste, ZERO can also be consumed when working in hot environments such as the mining and oil industry, fire fighting and the military.

Hyponatremia

 

During exercise, athletes can be at risk from Hyponatremia, also known as water intoxication, which is generally the result of drinking excessive amounts of plain water with no electrolytes during endurance events. This causes a low concentration of sodium in the blood. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (April, 2005) found that 13 percent of Boston Marathon runners developed Hyponatremia from drinking too much plain water.

To provide the best critical care, we need the best suppliers. This enables us to deliver the best cover to our clients. We need selected suppliers to work with us, carefully chosen for their ground breaking or innovative ideas, products or levels of service.

KitBrix

 

The foundation of KitBrix development was to spend less time searching for kit and equipment and more time doing the sport that you love best. Having timed myself for a whole month moving kit, searching for gloves, getting the right shoes etc I wasted 7.3 hours just looking for kit! That is a whole day training a month, completely wasted. KitBrix was made as functional, as durable and as effective as possible to support your kit requirements.

Physicool has now become a household name used by world-renowned surgeons, elite athletes and every-day people alike. Our products are used throughout Africa, America, Asia, Australia, and Europe for every-day purposes ranging from the treatment of a sprained ankle, enhancing patient rehabilitation post surgery to beating the heat of a hot flush.

 

We didn’t start this way. Physicool’s origins stem back to the equine market, Physicool’s sister company Equinice, and a small office on a Dorset farm, England.

 

Physicool’s rapid evaporation cooling system was initially used to treat race horses. It wasn’t until we received feedback from jockeys using Physicool to treat their own injuries that we realised the human application. After testing and product development Physicool was born, We shot to UK stardom in 2009 when Kay pitched Physicool on BBC’s Dragon’s Den. On the night of that successful pitch our website received 36,000 visits and global interest.

 

Today we continue to grow our product offerings with the development on new products and applications. Physicool is dedicated to enabling people to live their lives to the fullest by providing intelligent, forward thinking medical devices and lifestyle products to aid wellbeing to recovery.

Physicool: The Science. How Physicool Works

 

Physicool is a unique cooling bandage impregnated with rapidly evaporating alcohols. The alcohols react to the body heat and evaporate when the bandage is worn. This evaporative process draws heat out of the warmest source – local underlying tissue. Whilst the deep tissue is cooling down the compression will modify the inflammatory response, helping healing and recovery.

 

Research using thermographic imaging shows that a Physicool bandage applied to the lower leg reduced tissue temperature by 10°C after 10 minutes (image 4) and continued to fall.

Image 2. Temperature after 15 minutes of moderate exercise – no bandage

Image 3. Temperature taken 5 minutes after the bandage was applied

Image 4. Temperature 10 minutes after the bandage had been applied – showing a 7°C drop

Image 5. Temperature 15 minutes after the bandage had been applied – showing a 10+°C drop

Image 6. Temperature 60 minutes after the bandage had removed. The bandage was applied for 30 minutes

 

Each bandage will cool for 2 hours. The cooling benefits of Physicool outlast those of ice packs, sprays or gels.

The science of cooling by rapid evaporation

 

Evaporation is a process which involves a liquid changing to a gas. When a liquid evaporates it loses the warmest particles first, the remaining particles are cooler. Alcohol evaporates at a lower heat and at a faster rate than water. This gives a faster and greater rate of evaporation. The coolant draws the warmest particles away from the deeper tissues, which results in a cooling benefit.

 

The Physicool bandage has been scientifically developed to bind the coolant to the surface of the bandage and ensure a sustained delivery of coolant. This is achieved through the unique weave of the bandage which employs open-cell technology which traps the coolant in the ‘cells’ and releases a continual cooling effect.

 

More coolant can be sprayed directly into the bandage if a further period of cooling is required. There is no need to remove the bandage to do this, due to the exceptional binding effect of Physicool.

 

Cryotherapy (cooling therapy) is widely used as a beneficial treatment in both the early management and the rehabilitation of soft tissue injuries. The temperature of the underlying tissues is reduced by the withdrawal of heat away from the body to achieve a therapeutic effect; reducing tissue temperature, blood flow, pain, and metabolism in the affected area. When Physicool is used correctly, the bandage will feel warm to the touch on the outside.

 

Physicool combines compression and support with sustained cooling. Research shows that the therapeutic benefits of cold therapy are enhanced by the simultaneous compression of the affected area (Capps, 2007). The aim of compression is to stop haemorrhaging and reduce swelling

Company - about us.

 

For over 25 years I had a very painful recurring lower back problem, and whilst I loved going to the gym for a regular workout, I was often in too much pain to go.

 

Over the years I tried many therapies and a vast array of products searching for something to help alleviate my back pain pre-session and prevent problems setting in post session.

 

Finally, I was referred to a therapist specialising in the making of bespoke therapeutic products. After a short consultation I was presented with a couple of products which were handmade in my presence. I went home, used the products and was simply stunned by the results. After so many years I finally experienced relief from the sharp pain in my lower back so was able to go to the gym and, post-session, I had no aching muscles even after a vigorous workout. I found it hard to believe that this therapist, simply by adding a few drops of certain essential oils to a simple product, could make such a profound difference when everything else I had tried made little or no difference at all.

 

I commissioned the therapist to design a product range that would help to minimise injuries, dramatically reduce nerve pain, improve blood flow during exercise, and soothe aching and tired muscles after exercise.

 

I was the first to use the resulting range and was so impressed that I immediately sent out sample packs for customer evaluation. Everyone who used the products was as impressed as I was with the results, and with that I launched our exclusive, all natural therapeutic range of sports products.

Our Story

 

SPORTTAPE was launched in 2010 and we’ve been on an epic adventure ever since. Our goal has always been to create products that are loved and solutions that are exploratory, educational and inspirational.

 

There is a great deal of satisfaction to be gained from making something well, of such superior quality that you know it is going to last the distance, stand the test. It makes the hard work and the obsessing over each and every detail worth all the effort. That’s our reward. SPORTTAPE is self-funded, profitable, and slowly taking over the world (well, we can dream, right?)

 

Our team of 4 introvert(s), extrovert(s), right brains, and left brains works hard to make products people love to use. Open source thinking closed doors manufacturing. All of our ideas are open sourced; we will happily share our thinking in return for yours and have had consulted with some the UK's best sports medical professionals to create our range of tapes. All of our products are then manufactured exclusively for us, to our exact specifications. A blend of honesty and product quality has gone down a treat, and we don't plan on changing any time soon. If you have any questions about us or our products then please get in touch, we'd love to hear from you.

* Reduce pressure on painful areas - SPORTTAPE FLEX can be applied to relieve the tension often associated with weakened or inflamed muscles and tendons. It can help by reducing the pain caused by the overload and be helpful for engaging actively in rehab.

 

* Improve your ability to move - depending how the tape is applied it is thought to activate stretch receptors in the soft tissue which feedback to our higher brain centres. This positively influences the control of muscle tension by activating muscle spindles. This in turn improves our ability to flex and respond to the stresses and strains of increased activity, and improves our muscular endurance.

 

* Promote blood flow and lymphatic drainage - when applied to the skin with stretch the tape naturally wants to recoil. As a result, it lifts the skin and fascia to allow blood and lymph flow to increase which may be beneficial in the recovery of soft tissue injuries.
