Reduce the Risk of Spinal Injury in Crashes
Hard impact on the frame bottom during a crash, compresses you into the seat bottom.
The weight of your head, helmet and body act like a pile driver on your rigidly seated spine. The short duration, high G-force impact can cause compression fractures of vertebrae, ruptured discs, broken neck, broken back and paralysis.
Two things are needed to reduce these Spinal Impact forces:
1. Compressible Material
The downward motion of your body and spine must be slowed down during the impact. 802SAM Shock Absorbing Material in The Crash Pad works like a shock absorber with uniform resistance throughout compression. It's the right stuff!
2. Compressible Space
Your spine needs room to slow its downward motion. The thickness of the Crash Pad provides the critical compressible space needed to slow your downward motion.
