The Shield

The Shield is made of D3O® material, which is flexible and comfortable in a state of rest but acts as a shock absorber in case of sudden impact. This makes the material perfect for wearing comfortably during the day while being able to offer protection when needed.

The Shield should be stored at room temperature, in a ventilated dry place, out of direct sunlight. Do not store under heavy objects, or in extreme temperatures.

Clean the Shield by wiping it down with a damp cloth. Never use cleaners or detergents, nor put the Shield in the washing machine, this may result in irreparable damage and will reduce the effectiveness of your Shield. After washing, allow to dry in a ventilated space at room temperature. Do not use hair dryers or other heaters to dry the Shield.

Easy to remove shield for regular cleaning and washing


The Sport Shield

The Sport Shield feels soft and is flexible. Combined with the standard Shield it will offer you optimal comfort and protection. Both shields will fit in the pocket of your shirt simultaneously.

The sport Shield has two functions, it can serve as an extra layer of protection for active device carriers and people with a higher risk of getting hit in their implant area.

Or it can be used as an extra barrier between your skin and the standard Shield for improved comfort. This can be done by cutting a hole in the Sport Shield where your device is located. In this case the Sport Shield will act as a support for the standard Shield. This will not only relieve the pressure on the device itself but also help protect the thin layer of skin that goes over your device. This option is most suited for device carriers of whom the device lies very close under the surface of the skin.
