An optimal protection system for skier
Combining protection, comfort and performance, the In&motion airbag system has been approved by the International Ski Federation (FIS) in autumn 2014 for SkiCross and summer 2015 for Alpine Skiing.
The French Ski Federation (FFS) and the french team athletes in Alpine Skiing and SkiCross accompanied In&motion in the development of its innovation: an airbag vest integrating a certified back protector, that can be worn under a ski suit. Totally autonomous, the system analyses the skier’s movements in real time and is able to detect a major fall.
The algorithm triggers then the inflation of the airbag, in less than one-tenth of a second, beofre the impact with the ground in order to protect the crucial body areas namely: spine, thorax, abdomen and the hips.
In 2019, more than 100 athletes from 12 nations wear the airbag vest integrating In&motion technology in World Cup and European Cup.
