The objective of this work was to develop a product that would have helped to promote primary prevention of pulley injuries among climbers. The goal has been achieved by working in steps. The first phase has been referencing theoretical knowledge to describe the phenomenon. The second part has been gathering evidence on the injury incidence and risk factors. Following that, there has been the prioritization of the educational content based on the injury evidence and data. Lastly, it ahs been all put together with the creation of a product that holds the knowledge gained through this process. The product leveraged curiosity, modern technologies that facilitate the access to data such as QR codes and the power of web-based resources to extend the availability of its content to the furthest possible extent. This approach is innovative and presents flaws but has major key points that can be implemented to improve the final product similar works. Especially from a usability standpoint, the thesis product tries to lower as much as possible the barrier to entrance that most of the knowledge regarding the injury lies over.
