Pflexxsports, a County Down based company, was established in 2011 with the aim of designing and manufacturing a new revolutionary and innovative physiotherapy exercise and sports performance product. The concept evolved from an injury to Les Pape, the Managing Director and inventor of the PFLEXX®.
While playing golf, Les tore his meniscus. He soon realised he needed to rebuild the muscles but he did not have time to spend going to the gym for rehab. Hence the birth of the world’s first wearable exerciser! Les started to invent his product with spring technology fitted to either side of the knee. The product works naturally against physical movement and is designed to build and strengthen the muscles around the knee.
The first product, the PFLEXX® Knee Exerciser, was launched in July 2012 and the company now sells online to over 42 countries worldwide in tandem with setting up a worldwide distribution network in countries such as the UK, Germany and most recently the Nordics.
The product range has been extended and now includes the New PFLEXXI, a wrap around product for the Knee and Elbow where one size fits most and comes with three sets of interchangeable resistances.
All the PFLEXX products can be worn on the move to build the muscles as you carry on with your everyday life, or used in training programmes to strengthen the target muscle groups around the joint or to complement the physiotherapists’ programme.
