About Us


Pflexx Sports was set up specifically to research and develop devices that would speed-up physical rehabilitation.  Les Pape, Managing Director has over 30 years experience in Executive Management & Product Development having headed manufacturing, technical and R&D operations in the UK, Europe and USA.

The Story

Les Pape loves golf and was devastated when a knee injury forced him off the fairways. Full fitness was a distant dream as he faced a long and slow recovery. Disappointed and frustrated, he decided to do something about it.

That moment was the birth of Pflexx Sports (Physioflexx). Les started to design and develop devices that could speed-up physical rehabilitation and get people back on their feet faster. Les invited leading experts to develop the technology. Teams of analysts, researchers and academics from the fields of bio-mechanical engineering and sports science at Northumbria University and Newcastle University carried out research projects, feasibility studies and field trials.

Beginning with the Knee Pflexx, physiologists worked with County Cricket, Rugby League, Athletics Clubs and many more sportspeople to put the Knee Pflexx to the test. Meticulous and intensive analysis proved the new device dramatically increases the activity of under-developed muscles around the knee – by up to 30% when walking and up to 400% when running.

We are all very proud of the Pflexx evolution. From early designs, to prototypes, to thorough testing and finally the precision-engineered devices that are now available, it has been quite a journey. But now everyone has access to this life-changing technology. So if you’re recovering from an injury (like Les), want to boost your sports performance or simply get fitter, Pflexx will help you reach your goals faster.

The Facts

Established in 2011 the Pflexx headquarters are located in the beautiful harbour town of Warrenpoint, Co Down. Expansion to date includes a Distribution Branch based on the UK mainland with more planned in various worldwide locations. With world domination in their sights, Les and his team are determined to revolutionise the treatment of muscle and ligament injuries. 

Fresh from receiving recognition at the ISPO Exhibition in Munich, the Pflexx team are using their pioneering technology to expand the Pflexx range to the ankles and elbows.
