Heelium© is an amalgamation of ‘helium’, the second lightest element and ‘heel’, the part of the foot that bears the most pressure. Our vision stands on four pillars – safety, high performance, sustainability and innovation. Following a thorough R&D model, we create sportswear that’s simple yet effective in yielding a high performance.
Heelium's journey started with a technology grant from the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. Our first product was bamboo athletic socks made in our patented design. The bamboo fibre make the socks breathable and quick drying. Since then, we've added towels and recycled polyester t-shirts to our sustainable product range. Our flagship product is a high-performance sports footwear that helps relax and massage athlete's foot muscles after high intensity training. We are also working on footwear customisation based on a user's foot shape and running style. The footwear will be out later this year.
Heelium has won several national and international awards like the Economic Times Power of Ideas Award in March 2018 & KStartup Grand Challenge, South Korea in August 2018. In January 2019, Heelium won the National Entrepreneurship Award in Textile from the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Govt. of India for its range of sustainable products.
