Impact protectors can do a lot to reduce the severity of injuries. They can prevent minor ones such as chipped elbow, shoulder or knee bones, which often turn out to be worse in the long term than fractures.
Knee, elbow and shoulder protectors come in six shapes, and two sizes. Choose which best fit your body.
Back protectors and lumbar protectors are your best defence against severe spinal injuries. A top quality back protector is one of the best bits of protection you can buy, but don’t think a foam pad in the back of your jacket is any substitute.
