In 1991, Pro-Tec Athletics was founded with just one product, the Knee Pro-Tec Patellar Tendon Strap. The owner, and former professional volleyball player, Jeff Rodgers first began selling to the volleyball market. The running market became the next frontier as the company grew. Pro-Tec quickly capitalized on an opportunity manufacturing specialized supports for running injuries. Pro-Tec Athletics now offers over 60 products ranging from highly effective orthopedic supports to breakthrough innovations in massage and hot and cold therapy devices. They make many products for injuries that other manufacturers often overlook and use product designs that are unparalleled in comfort and effectiveness.
