The most crucial obstacle that the players on a football field have to face is staying hydrated at all times. Hydromax is the solution to this problem. Hydromax is a device designed to keep athletes hydrated during a game.

Hydromax can be attached to the shoulder pad with the help of Velcro and is protected by a case to ensure that the sixteen-ounce pouch of water can stay put between the shoulder pads. A tube comes with the device for easy access to water for the players. Hydromax is designed in such a way that it would not tangle around a player’s neck. The product costs $8.5 to manufacture and is sold for $49.99 in retail stores.
