medicine

For people with existing spine or neck injuries, a flexible protective device can lead to a more active lifestyle without the restriction of wearing rigid collars, braces, or casts.

MILITARY

Easily portable, light-weight, conformable, and flexible. When rigid, it will protect effectively from injury and provide the most effective stabilization from trauma during combat.

SPORTS

Light-weight, flexible and able to turn into a rigid-brace at or before the moment of impact. Can be worn without inhibiting movement or performance.

TECHNOLOGY

Neurotect technology takes advantage of the latest innovations in wearable materials, electro-mechanical design and semiconductor sensing technologies, and offers a significant advantage over traditional braces and safety devices. The thin, flexible, and lockable plates that comprise our technology can be embedded into stretchable materials that easily conform to body shapes without impeding movement or comfort under normal circumstances, while immediately working to prevent injury when needed.

The technology has several aspects:
  • > Multiple overlapping thin plates that hinge and slide relative to one another;
  • > Integrated sensors capable of monitoring changes in the movement of the wearer and the changes in the movement of plates relative to others; and
  • > Plates stiffen or are locked into position in response to severe changes in movement to support or immobilize the limbs, joints, or spine of the wearer.

Neurotect Smart technology is based on its portfolio of pending patents.

HOW IT WORKS

Neurotect technology consists of freely moving, small, thin plates that form a conformable and flexible fabric-like material.

The individual joints flex easily and conform to the body during normal movement. Under abnormal movement, the interface will stiffen to spread the force over a greater area and diffusing the trauma and sharing the load more equally. A series of connections between the plates will allow for sophisticated control of the locking or stiffening process. Sensors can be incorporated throughout the device to engage and protect the wearer. Neurotect technology can interface with protective gear, such as helmets, boots, or other devices.
