The Queen’s Award recognises the successful development of Bloccs waterproof protectors for casts and dressings. Available in both adult and children’s sizes, the re-usable leg and arm covers also keep wound dressings dry and a new variant to protect PICC lines – the long, thin hollow tubes inserted above the elbow to administer medication – are about to be introduced.
Now a market leader, Bloccs has a UK customer base that includes Boots and Lloyds Pharmacy and a global distribution network that extends as far as Australia and New Zealand.
