The airbag system consists of integrated sensors and uses a precise algorithm to distinguish between a crash or fall from the normal forces associated with Alpine racing. To detect a loss of balance, the system keeps track of the skier's movement by performing 1,000 analysis per second. When a fall is detected, the airbag is inflated in less than 100 milliseconds to provide protection for the neck, chest, spine, abdomen, and hips.
Professional ski racing has become a lot faster and more dangerous over the years. This product is a great innovation to reduce accidents and bad injuries – and even to save lives.
