Protection

At What Speed?  20 mph = 2 story building fall,  60 mph 6 story fall.

WARNING:

Wearing protective gear WILL NOT guarantee that injury or death will not occur.

Your best protection is a combination of following: the rules and code of conduct, lessons, correct falling techniques, and using your head! Body protection does not make you superhuman nor invincible.

1- do not take Motrin, aspirin, naproxen etc. Only Tylenol

2- take a SCAT 2 test baseline beforehand   Concussion Test Take a baseline

3- take a CDC free 30 min course on head injury and concussion.

In Reality the best advice is after hitting your head take a break and access the injury.

Your Ligaments stretch inside the brain, Brain contact to the inside of the skull can caue issues. Healing takes time. Some times 6 months or more.
