DESIGNED FROM DISCOVERY
Shock Absorber sports bras were developed as a result of extensive bio-mechanic research into the effects of exercise on women’s breasts. Results of this research led to the design of Shock Absorber sports bras.
THIS WAS A UNIQUE BREAKTHROUGH FOR ATHLETES AND SPORTSWOMEN WORLDWIDE.
BUT WE WANTED TO KNOW MORE...
Shock Absorber commissioned Bio-mechanic research at the University of Portsmouth, the world leaders in breast health.
HOW WE TEST
Retro reflective markers are positioned on the body to track vertical, horizontal and in-&-out movements of the breast whilst running.
The retro reflective markers that are positioned on the body show that the breasts move in a figure of 8 whilst running and this movement is substantially reduced by wearing a Shock Absorber sports bra.
BIG OR SMALL, ALL BREASTS MOVE DURING EXERCISE
Our research has shown that even an A cup can bounce up to 4cms while a G cup can bounce as much as 14cms*. *University of Portsmouth
AND THE RESULT?
The research proved that Shock Absorber sports bras are twice as effective at reducing breast movement as a normal bra.
