At Alba-Technic, LLC, we pride ourselves on our commitment to developing shock absorbing technologies and incorporating them into personal protective products.
Our products provide maximum performance while maintaining style and comfort. The need exists for highly efficient shock absorbing materials to reduce impact from a fall.
Let’s face it, people fall. In fact, one-third of our population falls every year. Falls account for almost half of all traumatic brain injury (TBI) related emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths in the US. Much of this trauma could be reduced if medical patients and clients prone to falling wore protective headgear.
Not only is this of serious consequence personally, it is also extremely expensive. Medically treated falls among older adults, especially among older women, are associated with substantial economic costs. Those costs reached $31B for non-fatal injuries in 2012 and averaged $9,375 per fall according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
