Womens sport went professional more than 40 years ago and yet it is still heavily unfunded and supported. At the same time players are much more vulnerable to injury due to the lack of protective equipment due to gender bias around available products and designs.
The focus for my project is to create a solution to reduce the risk of breast injuries in women's contact sport. I am designing a women's protective chest pad. I'm looking to find the right technical support (what materials would be the most protective) and suitable manufacturers to bring this idea to life. Thank you
