Aqua Running, Liverpool
Aqua Running founder Terry Nelson has suffered through dialysis, transplants and a leg amputation – but is now at the cutting edge of sensor tech.
The determined entrepreneur is working with European champions Real Madrid to incorporate cutting-edge sensor technology into its hydro buoyancy suits.
Terry Nelson saw a promising football career with his beloved Liverpool ruined by kidney failure and has since battled through two kidney transplants, 12 years on dialysis and a leg amputation, among other related conditions.
The firm now provides its TNAR hydro buoyancy system suits to Real Madrid, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs, as well as England Rugby, the British Lions and Leicester Tigers.
