Retail pharmacy is not only limited to offering OTC medicines and cosmetics; this new category for 2020 highlights those living aid and medical device products available to purchase in community pharmacies across Ireland.
These products assist with enhancing and improving consumer health and wellbeing and can include sport supports, electronics and non-medicated therapies. The winner for this new category in 2020 was Scholl InBalance Pain Relief Insoles.
These help to relieve lower body pains from being on the feet all day. Developed with a team of biomechanic experts, they have a Motion Control Structure and have been designed to work in three ways: Shock absorption, pressure redistribution and stabilisation. Lower Back Pain relief insole comes with a heel cup to reduce stress transfer to the lower back. It is a full length insole to support the position of the entire foot and prevent high pressure areas, distributing the load more evenly.
Judges Comments: “This is a well known brand with terrific consumer loyalty and therefore has a great following. I would frequently recommend this product over other brands we stock due to its renowned efficacy and value to the customer.”
