CLINICALLY TESTED BY TUFTS MEDICAL CENTER and FDA REVIEWED
Read the Peer-reviewed, published study in Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine, March, 2016, “Development of a Chest Wall Protector Effective in Preventing Sudden Cardiac Death by Chest Wall Impact (commotio cordis)”
After extensive evaluation, and following on our landmark study from Tufts Medical Center, the FDA has determined that patented HART CC pads, found in every Unequal HART chest protector, can improve safety on the sports field.
“It is reasonable to expect that chest protector designs incorporating these novel materials (Unequal HART) will be effective in the prevention of commotio cordis on the playing field.”
Hart Catcher Sizing
Measure from base of throat to waist to determine size. Chose the size closest to your measure.
“With balls flying at 90 mph and slashing sticks part of the territory, the sport of lacrosse certainly has risk. But Unequal has produced great looking chest protectors for all sports that perform at a level I haven’t seen before. The HART Goalie chest protector, for instance, allows for complete range of motion, is really thin and lightweight yet offers unbeatable protection. I recommend Unequal to any athlete serious about playing at peak with less risk.”
