In 1969, Dr Herman Pollack, a podiatrist, determined that his patients needed a unique bandage that was not commercially available. Working in his home in the evenings, Dr. Pollack created the Softeze™ Tubular Foam Bandage for Finger and Toe Protection. From this modest beginning, Hermell Products, Inc. was born. Now privately owned and operated by Ron Pollack, son of Dr. Pollack, Hermell has expanded their product line significantly to include: Soft goods featuring orthopedic supports, slings, cervical & lumbar cushions, foot care products, decubitus care products, wheel chair and seating cushions, and a collection of products for the bed. All of our durable products are crafted using cutting-edge manufacturing techniques and American ingenuity. Our marketing philosophy is customer focused. Every person at Hermell Products is at your service. Everyone works for our customers, from the President of the Company to the people who cut and sew and finish our products. We ship orders in a timely manner, back our products with an industry leading guarantee and go out of our way to make sure that you get what you want.
