"I was inspired to create this project after suffering injuries, specifically to the metatarsal region of my foot, when I was a teen," said Yaqub, Founder of MediCaptain. "The metatarsal region of the foot is very vulnerable to injury, whilst serious injuries such as metatarsal fractures, bone bruises, permanent nerve damage, and more can occur when getting impacted by boot spikes and getting stepped on by opposing players. The MediCaptain addresses these vulnerabilities and provides protection by using a flexible silicone padding that covers the metatarsal region, and protects the wearer."

With a focus on support, comfort, and injury prevention, the MediCaptain Sports Sock is poised to revolutionize the way athletes approach their sports endeavors.

Available in S to XL sizes, MediCaptain Socks are available to pre-order on Kickstarter and are looking to raise $4,000. Perks include an Early Bird discount of $25 for one pair of MediCaptain Lite Grip Socks and free delivery in the US.
