Phoenix Hipwear utilizes Crash Cloud Technology by Windpact. The Patented technology both absorbs energy as it compresses, and dissipates energy through impact vents, before rapidly re-inflating like a spring.
Testing was conducted in a lab to test the biomechanical performance of Phoenix Hipwear and 2 other commercially available hip protector shields.
The test was conducted by generating force by dropping a weighted anvil to a force plate to determine how much force would be absorbed by the shields and therefore reduce an amount of force going through to the force plate to be measured.
The results below show that all 3 of the shields worked to absorb some of the force, with the results stated for the Phoenix Hipwear Shield.
Approx. 80% of the force was absorbed by the Phoenix Hipwear Shield.
