O.R.S has been successfully launched in the UK. O.R.S is a tablet form of the standard oral rehydration salts formula. O.R.S is available to buy in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Ireland, Finland, Slovenia, Greece, Serbia, Montenegro, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. O.R.S is set to be launched in a further 31 countries by the end of 2013. The tablets contain a combination of glucose, salts and electrolytes. O.R.S helps to replenish the body with water and salts that have been depleted due to dehydration and thereby help to maintain  a healthy fluid balance. O.R.S is used by a variety of users including people who lose excess fluid, professional and recreational athletes and visitors to hot/tropical countries. The idea of the tablet formula first came to the attention of the research team of Clinova in 2003 after hearing a Yorkshire county cricket club coach on a radio station complaining about taking sachet based oral rehydration salts to an upcoming cricket tour of the West Indies due to the bulky nature of the sachet version of the product.
