Title (EN) IMPACT PROTECTION AND SHOCK ABSORBING SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE PROTECTION CONTRE LES CHOCS ET D'ABSORPTION DES CHOCS
Abstract:
(EN) An impact protection and shock absorbing device includes a support surface, and a plurality of flexible spines, configured of one or more sizes, each having a length defined from a base portion at the support surface to a distal portion thereof, and whereby each spine extends in one or more longitudinal directions outwardly from the support surface, at one or more angles less than 90 degrees. Sufficient deflecting of one or more spines by impact force causes impinging and deflecting of one or more other spines thereby dispersing and reducing impact forces.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de protection contre les chocs et d'absorption des chocs qui comprend une surface de support, et une pluralité de pointes souples, présentant une ou plusieurs tailles, chacune ayant une longueur définie, d'une partie de base au niveau de la surface de support à une partie distale de celle-ci, et chaque pointe s'étendant dans une ou plusieurs directions longitudinales vers l'extérieur à partir de la surface de support, au niveau d'un ou plusieurs angles inférieurs à 90 degrés. Une déviation suffisante d'une ou de plusieurs pointes par la force d'impact provoque l'impact et la déviation d'une ou de plusieurs autres pointes, ce qui permet de disperser et de réduire les forces d'impact.
