“This industry recognition caps a year of wins for our new Smart Insole™ Heel Pain Therapy product — both in superb customer feedback and successful clinical trial results,” said Andrew Whelan, president of BioElectronics Corporation. “Our customers have said that the Smart Insole product is the most successful, easy to use and proven treatment for common heel pain such as plantar fasciitis.”
BioElectronics retail box for Boots, designed by its own in-house marketing team was named Runner-up in the “Best New OTC Packaging Design” finishing one point behind the winner, the Bray Lenino, ad agency.
