How to Prevent and Relieve Painful Football and Hockey Helmet Abrasions - Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, Inc.

With the amateur and professional football season upon us, it seemed appropriate to discuss an unusual, but very solution for painful football helmet abrasion. The same slick blue blister patches that athletes use to prevent foot blisters are also very effective at eliminating redness/irritation and skin trauma on the forehead of football and hockey players. But don’t take our word for it – read what the professionals are saying about ENGO® Blister Prevention Patches

We have been very pleased with ENGO. ENGO has done an outstanding job on our guys in reducing friction; preventing blisters and eliminating helmet abrasions.” – Head Athletic Trainer, Buffalo Bills

Just like the hot, sweaty, high friction conditions that create blister within the shoes of athletes, friction trauma also occurs on the forehead of helmeted athletes – football, hockey and lacrosse players. ENGO® Blister Prevention Patches provide a smooth surface for the skin to slide against, eliminating the harsh side-to-side rubbing of helmet padding.

We recommend using ENGO® Rectangles (Part number E-2REC) on helmets and other sports equipment. Pre-cut oval and heel-shape ENGO® Patches are also available online at To find a retail store near you, search the ENGO Store Locator.
