DreamSkin Health, from the same people as Nike’s Dri-Fit and Adidas’ ClimaTeam, is one of two manufacturers who are supporting the trial.

If you think your child would be eligible for the trail, Nottingham University would like to hear from you. Either call on 0115 8844938, email them at, or go through their website :
