Founded in 2010, ProtectOne Tickless Run, an ultrasonic tick alarm designed specifically for runners, won the A ’Design Award in the Safety Clothing and Personal Protective Equipment category for its first recognition, with its clean design and innovative solutions.

Tickless Run is one of the newest products of the Hungarian startup, which responds to both environmental and health challenges. During the pandemic period, the demand for outdoor activities increased significantly: a study reported that 59% of active adults performed outdoor activities such as running, training, hiking, and walking. ProtectOne’s two new products introduced, Tickless Run, designed specifically for runners, and Tickless Active, which provides protection for active lifestyles, wanted to respond to these needs.

“We have consciously prepared to meet the increased demands for outdoor activity since the outbreak. Last year, it became clear that hiking, outdoor exercise, required new solutions to control parasites. The market has also predicted this, so it has become clear that significant growth potential can be exploited by expanding the product range recommended to people by ProtectOne. This is also reflected in the results: by the end of April 2021, we had reached 75% of total sales in 2020. ”
