|"Imagine if your suit is defective or no longer works how expected -- locks up while you're in the middle of some activity (if you're wearing one, obviously dangerous activity) and you fall off a cliff or break your neck! Scarry... but I'm 100% sure it would do more good then bad."

Patients in rehab would have a garment to wear while transitioning from beds and wheelchairs to standing and walking positions during physical therapy. Would it work for American Football players? Probably. Do the applications end with clothing? How about car bumpers? Laptop bags? The interior spaces on busses & trains might be made a little safer as well. This could very well protect everything that goes bump...day or night."
