Ice Hockey Sled Models Aim to Reduce Injury in Amputees and Variety of Athletes
The FlexSled ice hockey sled is marketed in multiple colors, designs, and models that include double amputee, single leg, non-amputee, and athlete assist. According to a news release from the company of the same name, the product features a patented flex technology built to reduce impact force when two sleds collide or when a sled collides with the dasher boards.
The FlexSled is created and manufactured in the United States and also aims to address the incidence of a “T-bone,” in which one player checks another in an irregular manner. The product is intended to decrease a portion of this impact by absorbing the kinetic energy within the spring frame, and then releasing the energy with a slow recoil.
The release notes that the FlexSled is customizable for all athletes and its flex technology can be modified based upon the weight and size of the player.
