Description:
ADJUSTABLE FULL-BODY PROTECTION GEAR

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present disclosure relates to a protective gear and, more particularly, relates to an adjustable full body protection gear.

BACKGROUND

Protection gears are used in various applications, ranging from sports to medical treatments. Different applications demand different type of protection gears. Most of the times, it has been observed that the protection gear as worn by a user doesn’t suitably cover or protect the full body of the user. In fact, a user generally has to wear a number of separate protection gears in order to protect the full body. For example, the user may have to wear separate protection gears for protecting the torso, arms, hips, thighs, knees, shins, and calves. First of all, purchasing separate protection gears for each body part is an expensive affair for the user. Further, time required and inconvenience associated with wearing so many gears cannot be ignored.

Even after wearing all these protection gears, the entire body of the user is not entirely covered. Rather, wearing so many separate protection gears restricts free movement of the body parts, for example, due to colliding ill-fitted parts. Considering quick reflexes and movements as required in such applications, manoeuvrability of at least the limbs is absolutely relevant in all such applications. Otherwise, the user may not be able to appropriately respond to the situations arising out of such applications.

Furthermore, the existing body protectors are manufactured with standard dimensional features and therefore, are not customizable to accommodate different body structures of different users. Consequently, they may not provide adequate protection to the body of the users. Moreover, the existing body protectors are not customizable to effectively operate in different applications. Therefore, owing to the ill-fitted parts of the body protectors, the protection of the body is compromised, especially, while being in motion. Moreover, most of the existing protection gears are designed considering male physique and there is a lack of comfortable and effective protection gears for females. In fact, most of the existing protection gears are developed particularly for the males. Therefore, the females are not suitably protected in the realm of abovementioned applications. SUMMARY

The system, methods, and examples provided herein are illustrative only and not intended to be limiting.

Embodiments of the present invention will be described below in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

Figure 1A and Figure IB illustrate various views of an adjustable full-body protection gear 100, according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. The protection gear 100 includes a torso protector for protecting torso of a wearer, at least one arm protector for protecting arms of the wearer, and a lower body protector for protecting the lower body of the wearer.

Figure 2 illustrates a first perspective view of the torso protector 200 for protecting a torso of a wearer, in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. The wearer is a female wearer. The first perspective view corresponds to front of the torso protector 200. Figure 3 illustrates a second perspective view of the torso protector 200, in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. The second perspective view corresponds to rear of the torso protector 200. Referring to Figure 2 and Figure 3, the torso protector 200 comprises a protective vest 202 (depicted by dark portions) defining a neck opening 204, a first arm opening 206, and a second arm opening 208 to protect torso, excluding head and hands, of the wearer. The protective vest 202 includes a front panel 210 and a rear panel 212. The rear panel 212 is integrated with the front panel 210 to cover a front portion, a back portion, and a substantial portion of shoulders of the wearer. A plurality of foam pads (not shown in the figure) are placed inside the front panel 210 and the rear panel 212. The plurality of foam pads is successively arranged between a first layer of textile material (not shown in the figure) and a second layer of textile material (not shown in the figure). Examples of the textile material include, but not limited to, 230 GSM fire retardant proban 25 wash. The protective vest 202 can be manufactured using techniques as known in the art such as injection moulding. In an example of manufacturing, the first layer of textile material and the second layer of textile material are sewn together after placing the plurality of foam pads between the first layer of textile material and the second layer of textile material.

The protective vest 202 further includes a first set of lower side panels 214 extending from the front panel 210 and a second set of lower side panels 216 extending from the rear panel 222. The first set of lower side panels 214 is removably attached with the second set of lower side panels 216 to cover a lower left abdomen and a lower right abdomen of the wearer. In an example, the first set of lower side panels 214 is attached with the second set of lower side panels 216 by placing the first set of lower side panels 214 over the second set of lower side panels 216. In an example, the first set of lower side panels 214 may be removably attached with the second set of lower side panels 216 through fasteners, such as Velcro, buckles, snap fasteners, press stud, and the like.

Figure 4 illustrates a front view of the torso protector 200, in accordance with the embodiment of the present invention. The front panel 210 includes a front shield 300 fixedly disposed on the front panel 210. The front shield 400 may be fixed to the front panel 210 by various fixing means such as threads and adhesives. In an example, the front shield 400 is sewn on the front panel 210. In another example, the front shield 400 is disposed using an adhesive. In an implementation, the front shield 400 has a variable range of thickness from 2 millimetres (mm) to 4 mm to protect a chest portion and an abdomen portion of the wearer. In an example, the front shield 400 is made of hard plastic material. As would be understood, material of the front shield 400 is not limited to hard plastic and may include any suitable material in accordance with requirement of manufacturing the shield. Further, the front shield 400 comprises an upper portion 402 adapted to form a convex shaped structure for protecting the chest portion of the wearer. The upper portion 402 is formed by embossing a plurality of sheets placed one over another such that a dimension of each of the plurality of sheets increases from inside (i.e., in contact with the wearer) to outside. In an implementation, the embossing of the plurality of sheets results in the upper portion 402 having a variable range of thickness from 2mm to 4mm. In an example, the plurality of sheets is made of hard plastic material. As would be understood, material of the plurality of sheets is not limited to hard plastic and may include any suitable material in accordance with requirement of manufacturing the upper portion 402. The upper portion 402 can be manufactured using techniques as known in the art such as injection moulding.

Further, the front shield 400 comprises a lower portion 404 adapted to form an elongated horizontal structure bearing a curved lens shape for protecting the abdomen portion of the wearer. The lower portion 404 is formed by embossing the plurality of sheets placed one over another. In an implementation, such embossing results in the lower portion 404 having a variable range of thickness from about 2mm to 4mm. In an example, the lower portion 404 can be formed by embossing a pair of two sheets. In an example, the plurality of sheets is made of hard plastic material. As would be understood, material of the plurality of sheets is not limited to hard plastic and may include any suitable material in accordance with requirement of manufacturing the lower portion 404. The lower portion 404 can be manufactured using techniques as known in the art such as injection moulding. Further, both the upper portion 402 and the lower portion 404 may include a plurality of embossed patterns to minimize force of impact and divert projectile away from the wearer. Each of the embossed patterns can either have same pattern or distinct patterns. When a projectile strikes either the upper portion 402 or the lower portion 404, the energy of the projectile spreads out sideways through the plurality of sheets. Because the energy is divided between the plurality of sheets, and spreads over a large area, the energy is quickly absorbed resulting in lesser impact to the wearer. For example when a player catches ball in cricket match, the player lowers hands to decrease momentum of ball, thereby decreasing impact of force exerted by accelerated ball on the player’s hand while catching the ball. In similar manner, when a projectile strikes on the wearer from front side, such as pelted stone, the plurality of embossed patterns decreases momentum of impact from the projectile. In said example, the plurality of embossed patterns will act as a decelerating agent and thus decreases overall impact from the projectile on body of the wearer. Figure 5 illustrates a rear view of the torso protector 200, in accordance with the embodiment of the present invention. The rear panel 212 includes a back shield 502 fixedly disposed on the rear panel 212. The back shield 502 may be fixed to the rear panel 212 by various fixing means such as threads and adhesives. In another example, the back shield 502 is disposed on the rear panel 212 using an adhesive. Further, the back shield 502 is adapted to form a convex shaped structure for protecting the back portion of the wearer. The convex shaped structure of the back shield 502 aligns with curvature of the back of the wearer. In an example, the back shield 502 may form an S -shaped structure along vertical length of the back portion of the wearer.

Further, the back shield 502 is formed by embossing the plurality of sheets placed one over another. In an implementation, such embossing results in the back shield 502 having a variable range of thickness from about 2mm to 4mm. In an example, the back shield 502 can be formed by embossing a pair of two sheets. In an example, the plurality of sheets is made of hard plastic material.
