Sit-skiing, wheelchair basketball, and ice sledge hockey are fast paced, high-performance, high-adrenalin sports, but don’t come without their risks. Paraplegic athletes often suffer undiagnosed injuries in the parts of their body with reduced sensation. Untreated injuries can develop into performance hindering or even life-threatening conditions. Bruise is a smart injury detection suit, which uses a recyclable pressure-sensitive film to indicate the severity of injuries by changing colour upon impact. Bruise is made of sweat-wicking stretch fabric for a comfortable, supportive fit. Mesh inserts and ergonomic seams offer breathability and freedom for movement.
