Animation: RSP-System, Model Autumn 2018
The development team at adamsfour. is an industry B2B-Technology Partner that focuses on implementing new safety approaches into existing sports safety products.
Whilst existing back protectors are designed to protect against direct impacts, the majority of injuries happen due to rotational forces.
Prevent Over Rotation.
Every year people suffer spinal cord injuries due to sports, traffic and working accidents. It is clinically verified, that the majority of spinal fractures, spinal cord injuries and paraplegia are caused by over rotation.
Therefore, we invented the RSP-System.
How does it work?
Our RSP-System allows natural and controlled movements - but impedes rotations after a specific range to avoid rotational injuries.
If spinal rotation enters a critical range, the implimented X-straps begin to tighten and with the help of a specialized reversing mechanism found at the waist, rotational energy is redirected and absorbed to protect the user from potential injury.
