 Project objective

Sports injuries can result in an immense amount of long-term pain and suffering to the lives of those effected and even results in fatalities. This also results in a huge burden on EU hospitals, who spend €2.4 billion a year in direct health costs to treat patients effected by sports injuries. Horse riding is a particularly dangerous sport as the actions of horses can be unpredictable, making serious injury and fatality a possibility each time a rider mounts a horse. Chest and spinal injuries contribute to up to 26% of hospital admissions for horse riding accidents and injuries to both the body and shoulder are common in other dangerous sports such as mountain biking and snowsports. State-of-the-art: There are two main types of body protectors available for equestrians: inflatable air jackets (e.g. Airowear and Point Two Air) and panel-based jackets (Racesafe). The major issue with air jackets is that when they are inflated, they do not provide the rider with the flexibility to perform a “tuck and roll”, meaning that cannot quickly move out of the path of horses during falls, increasing the risk of crushing injuries. Panel based jackets are inserted with only a standard EVA based foam, which is an adequate level of protection to absorb the impact of falls or being stood on by a horse. We, Teqnox Ltd, have created a body protector “Faze” which is lightweight, breathable, and easy to adjust, whilst providing a high level of safety protection for the rider. Our innovate armadillo style design includes: • Overlapping and interconnected panels for rider flexibility, also ensuring no weak points. • A bespoke blend of two layers of soft and hard visco elastic foams to provide protection in high impact areas (chest and spine). .• A patent pending self-locking mechanism giving the rider a single point of adjustment to easily adjust the panels across the waist to fit any body type. • Inner and outer layers composed of impact resistant sports mesh for breathability.
