Prevention Trial Assessing Paper-Tape in Endurance Distances (PreTAPED)

Blisters are a very common complaint in both the general population and also the athlete. This study's aim is to determine whether applying paper tape (an inexpensive and common component of most foot care kits) to the foot of endurance runners prevents the frequency and severity of friction blisters.

Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check to see if other locations are recruiting.
