Unequal Technologies have been working for the Sports technology market for a long time now. The Unequal Halo Band by the company, which was released in last summer, was an absolute hot in the sports world. Since then, the company has been developing different protective helmets and caps for baseball and other games.
Just recently, Unequal Technologies also released sports armor for athletes named as HART Chest Protector. The wearable protector has now been scientifically proved to be the best among the other chest protectors available in the market. As per a study by The Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine, the HART protectors are up to 95 percent effective in stopping the immediate Commotio cordis (cardiac concussion).
Commotio cordis has been a leading reason of the death of the young baseball players around the world. The problem happens when a sudden blow or impact occurs on the physical area around the heart. This may lead to sudden heart failure or cardiac arrest. This is why chest protection is used by various lacrosse goalies and baseball catchers.
Dr. Mark Link, head of the research stated that “About one-third of all Commotio cordis cases occur with chest protection on, so it is essential that proper padding is in place.” A majority of the chest guards failed in the chest protection test. However, the research teams have proven that Unequal HART chest protector as is the first ever wearable to seriously reduce the risk of Commotio cordis.
Although the study was initially funded by Unequal Technologies, but it is true and exact in the research. Unequal’s HART lacrosse goalie chest protector and the catcher’s chest protector are both available for $159.95 from company’s online store.
