Evolution of the shin tekk

An invention inspired by a problem and designed to solve it…The ShinTekk was designed and patented by inventor and avid runner Charlie Gillis along with his long-time friend “Tall” Paul Singley. Paul and Charlie enjoy being physically active. Charlie is a marathon runner who faced frequent shin splints and other painful lower leg injuries that would disrupt his training. He understood the impact of being thrown off one’s training plan – marathons are challenging enough and running one without properly preparing can significantly impact performance or even lead to more serious injury.

Looking for a solution, Charlie could not find an effective method or existing easy-to-use product on the market that could help with his shin splints. After speaking with athletes, coaches, and clinicians, Charlie learned that many runners and athletes face the very same frustration: having avoidable injuries stand in their way with no way to relieve them.

Paul and Charlie are inspired by those who are motivated to work hard to overcome their obstacles. They hit the drawing board to provide anyone who’s frustrated by injury the means to do just that.

Their belief is to help runners and athletes of all levels continue to pursue their goals without concern for injury. Their goal is to bring athletes professionally designed and tested tools they need to overcome their obstacles and keep pursuing their goals.
