Protective Equipment

Our sports biomechanics department understands that athletes can be subjected to dynamic impacts on a frequent basis. It is the role of protective equipment to maintain player safety and prevent injuries during these situations. Our sports biomechanics team uses cutting-edge technology to analyze these dynamic impacts by performing in-game player evaluations and conducting controlled laboratory tests. These scientific endeavors identify the unique components of protective equipment to fully understand and optimize their design.
