Abstract [en]

This thesis project has been written and accomplished in collaboration with8848 Altitude AB. The goal was to develop a spine protection for skiers andsnowboarders. The background to this was to develop a protective gear thatwas so easy to use so that there are no real arguments not to use it. At the sametime as simplicity and plainness were important it could not compromise withsafety.The result was a vest with a tight fit and a removable spine protection thatis placed in a pocket in the back of the vest. The tight fit makes sure that thespine protection it always in the correct place and gives the best protection.The protective pad is molded in a material from a company named 3do. Thematerial is based on intelligent molecules that make the material soft andflexible in its natural structure but when a force is applied to the material itinstantly becomes rigid and absorbs the shock. The pad also has a hole patternthat ventilates heat and moist.The vest is made from a fabric that has been infused with activated coal fromcoconuts. The technology comes from Cocona Fabrics who uses recycledcoconut shells from food industry waste. The activated coal enables the fabric toventilate heat and moist in a very effective way. The activated coal also reducesodors. The technology is totally natural and is not harmful to the human bodyor the environment.Using these materials and technologies makes it possible to create a protectivegear, which is flexible and easy to use and at the same time protects the spinefrom shocks. It can also ventilate heat and sweat effectively, which makes itmore comfortable for the user.
