PhysioPod UK Limited are delighted to sponsor Captain Chris Howard for this very worthwhile cause
When PhysioPod UK Limited heard that Captain Chris Howard was attempting such a massive project to raise money for Help For Heroes, it was without any hesitation that they offered him the use of a DEEP OSCILLATION® Personal Sports unit for faster regeneration after his training, any injury, any damage from overstraining, muscles aches, strains, infammation and swelling incurred prior and post event.
In 2008 Chris ran a half marathon around a helicopter landing site in Musa Qala, Afghanistan raising over £5,000 for Help for Heroes
