Our technology is quite simple. You cannot stop someone from falling. The probability is that at some point, a fall will happen. Wearing the SMARTY®
may significantly reduce the consequences of a fall.
We have created a product to mitigate the effects of a fall. We take a great deal of the force that would normally go into the brain, resulting in injury, and shunt it over a range of dynamic polymers. The impact resisting system used in SMARTY®
relies on the patented combination of a honeycomb and dilatant material (U.S. Patent 8,087,101 and Canadian and European patents
). In the case of a fall, the impact causes the soft dilatant material to immediately change to form a hard shell that spreads and shunts the forces over the honeycomb matrix. It then returns to its normal condition for additional protection.
