Professional Athletes Seek Blister Prevention & Relief in ENGO Patches - Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, Inc.

Six years after introducing the consumer version of our ShearBan® product for friction & shear relief, the staff at Tamarack truly enjoys the customer contact and loyalty we’ve witnessed with ENGO® Blister Prevention Patches. All the phone calls, emails and letters we receive are encouraging signs that a small company can make a big impact on the enjoyment and health of people around the world.

An order from a professional football (NFL) team today let a few of us to reflect on where this product has been over the past few years. ENGO® Patches are relied upon for long-lasting blister protection amongst a loyal following of amateur and professional sports teams & individual athletes around the world. We rely on our customers’ blister-free experiences to spread the word about this product.

A few years ago, our little blister product helped a team of physicians reach the summit of Mt. Everest for the Caudwell Xtreme Everest Expedition. Earlier, we learned about a passionate group of ultra distance athletes who kept blisters at bay during a grueling 135 mile battle of physical and mental fortitude, known as the Badwater Ultramarathon. Between the two completely disparate environments, we learned that ENGO® Patches can withstand some ridiculously hot & cold environments! And today, with the incidence of diabetic foot wounds on the rise, ENGO® Patches, and its medical industry counterpart (ShearBan®), are helping to protect against skin lesions, callusing and ulcers.

As a small product development and manufacturing company, Tamarack can hardly compete with the promotions of much bigger competitors in the blister care market. What we can do is promise to listen to our customers – addressing questions and feedback and to always deliver products that we stand behind. Our products are uniquely designed and continually improved to address customer feedback and new manufacturing capabilities.

If you experience painful rubbing, blisters, callusing or foot ulcers, we hope you’ll give one of our unique friction & shear products a try.
