Title (EN) ENERGY ABSORBING GARMENT
(FR) VETEMENT ABSORBANT L'ENERGIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention comprises an energy absorbing and/or spreading garment for protection against an impact or a fall, the garment including an inner layer (2), an outer layer (1), a plurality of arcuate panels (3,4,5) housed between the inner layer (2) and the outer layer (1) of the garment, and wherein each panel (3,4,5) is arranged to overlap at least one adjacent panel in sliding relationship with the at least one adjacent panel. Impacts from falling off a horse or being kicked by a horse will cause the panels (3,4,5) to deform, spreading the energy of the impact. The panels (3,4,5) to deform, spreading the energy of the impact. The panels (3,4,5) also slide against each other further spreading the force of the impact.
(FR)L'invention concerne un vêtement absorbant et/ou diffusant l'énergie conçu pour assurer une protection contre un choc ou une chute. Ledit vêtement comprend une couche intérieure (2), une couche extérieure (1), plusieurs panneaux arqués (3, 4, 5) logés entre la couche intérieure (2) et la couche extérieure (1) du vêtement, chaque panneau (3, 4, 5) étant conçu pour chevaucher coulissant au moins un panneau adjacent. Les chocs dus à une chute de cheval ou à un désarçonnement induisent la déformation des panneaux (3, 4, 5), et donc la diffusion de l'énergie du choc. Les panneaux (3, 4, 5) coulissent également les uns contre les autres, ce qui permet une meilleure diffusion de la force du choc.
