to revolutionize safety.
Every year people suffer spinal cord injuries due to sports, traffic and working accidents. The consequences can lead to life-long disabilities, chronic pain and even death. Statistics show that existing back protectors can not effectively protect against severe fractures of the spine.
We therefore work on the development of a new spinal protection technology, that will revolutionize the back protector.
Statistics on spinal cord injuries
It is clinically verified, that the majority of spinal fractures and paraplegia is mainly caused by overrotation, resulting into a statistical peak of spinal cord injuries.
A back protector should allow movements close to the maximum, blocking at a certain point to avoid overrotation.
