For too long, there have been competing needs in the field of sports products, regardless of orthopaedics or footwear. On the one hand offering the highest possible level of protection and the greatest possible freedom of motion on the other. It has been impossible to satisfy both needs. Until now.
Betterguards has developed a technology that combines these two requirements.
Experts in materials science know so-called dilatant fluids, which stiffen under stress, but are otherwise generally fluid.
At the beginning of the research, Betterguards has been working intensively with such fluids. Betterguards further elaborated this fascinating, speed-dependent behavior and finally transferred it into an intelligent fluid system - the Betterguards System.
The passion for sports and research leads to the development of such an intelligent mechanism and has made Betterguards to a pioneer in the field of smart protection. The innovative platform technology now finally offers the possibility to generate speed-dependent high resistances.
