Developed by OPRO, producers of the world’s most technologically advanced mouthguard and double winners of the Queen’s Award for Innovation, the OPROtec range includes PPE face protection products, compression sleeves, supports, braces and kinesiology tape.
Originally featuring a range of sports protection products designed to protect individuals from injury, assist their recovery and relieve pain, the COVID-19 outbreak and general shortage of quality PPE available to the public and healthcare workers, sparked the OPRO team into action.
Recognising the health imperative placed on people covering their faces in public as lockdown measures are eased, together with the unreliability and delay in sourcing quality PPE overseas, the OPRO team focused its attention on developing high quality, fully certified surgical facemasks and face visors which are made in its manufacturing facility in Hertfordshire, UK. The surgical facemasks have been tested by a leading testing facility in the UK and are manufactured by OPRO Machinery Ltd an ISO9001:2015 certified company.
OPROtec surgical face masks and visors underpin one of the brand’s key values which is to protect individuals, whether that is from injury or illness. With the ability to produce hundreds of thousands of surgical facemasks every week, OPROtec is committed to ensuring heroic frontline healthcare staff together with the wider public have access to high quality, UK made PPE.
Innovators in the field of sports protection for over 20 years, other products in the OPROtec range continue to champion that imperative, with supports catering for the back, elbow and wrist joints, down to the lower extremities featuring materials and designs that warm and compress muscles to encourage blood flow, kick-starting the body's natural healing process.
OPROtec’s innovative kinesiology tape features industry-leading antimicrobial protection from Biomaster. Containing a unique silver ion technology, it prevents the growth of bacteria by up to 99.99% including antibiotic-resistant MRSA.
OPROtec is dedicated to protecting healthcare workers and the general public in their daily lives.
