If you’re an orthopedic surgeon within eye-sight of a mountain slope, then you probably owe a big ‘thank you’ to the skiing industry for its penchant for knee and back related injuries. However, the Swedes at POC (POC Sweden AB), have created a new line of body armor that may take a bite out of your patient load.
The body armor has been developed in close collaboration with our back specialists at POC Lab. The Spine back protector and its accessories assures that you get protection for the upper part of the spine, including vertebrae C1 to C7, and also for the lowest part including the caudal area.
Together with the other body armor products you can tailor the degree of protection you want to have, depending on how you ski and also meet any rules and restrictions applying to the competitions you enter. POC body armor gives you unsurpassed levels of comfort, flexibility and safety for all types of skiing.
Spine forms the basis of a modular system that you can trust absolutely. It consists of a flexibly jointed back-shield in a special combination of the latest high-tech materials, anatomically shaped and generously ventilated. We have improved the design of the waistband by widening the bands, which are tapered towards the ends, to add support and comfort. The waistbands also use a new super-strong Velcro that will last for ever.
Of course, if you really appreciate your spinal column, you’ll have to pony up a bit more dough if you want the extra cervical and coccyx attachments. Oh and don’t worry, those Swedes even made a tiny version of their spinal body armor for the kiddies.
