Zock was an idea first developed whilst watching a game of football - sometimes the best ideas are developed in the most mundane ways.
When one of the players injured his metatarsals and could no longer continue to play for the rest of the season, we began to think about the possibility of making a product that would reduce the impact to the foot, without reducing the ability to kick the ball. Working alongside North Product Design we decided to make a removable metatarsal injury protector.
The initial design, and sourcing the correct material, took a few months, but we finally came up with a concept where we could produce a high class product, and in October 2016 the first Zock was born.
Following the initial product formation we then had to test Zock out to ensure it did what we hoped it would! With the help of the University of Central Lancashire, and their research department, we were able to conduct various tests over a couple of months.
The results? "Zock significantly reduces the impact to the metatarsal bones and can prevent injury to this area".
So, this is us. We are a small team. A pharmacist and a digital marketeer. But, we believe in our product, and we hope you do too.
Welcome to Zock.
