Our Mission

There are a lot of myths about foot blisters - their cause, prevention and treatment. And they're deeply entrenched, among athletes and in sports medicine circles. It's a shame because athletes are suffering unnecessarily.

At Blister Prevention, our mission is to turn this around:

  • To improve the state of blister management (particularly prevention) world-wide
  • So athletes can get on top of their blisters and perform pain-free
  • And so sports medicine professionals can actually be of help to their clients

"I'm taking the mystery out of blister management. And I'm using research and scientific fact to do this."

Founder Rebecca Rushton is a podiatrist with over 20 years experience in managing feet. And she's blister-prone herself. She knows from bitter experience that established management practices often don't work. Her investigations have found that the methods we use today to manage blisters don't follow research findings. That's why she wrote The Advanced Guide to Blister Prevention. And why she provides specialist foot care at multiday ultramarathons around Australia. 

Our ENGO association

We are distributors of ENGO Blister Prevention Patches in Australasia.

Rebecca discovered ENGO by chance in 2009 and it's what keeps her blister-free to this day. One of her aims is to expose people to ENGO and take it from being a best kept secret to a well known blister prevention option.

If you're not interested in ENGO, we're absolutely fine with that. Our aim is to explain how all blister strategies work (and don't work) ... so you can get the most of your preferred choice and finally get on top of your blister issues.

So if you want to know anything about foot blisters ... anything ... Blister Prevention is your go-to resource.
