UNEQUAL Technologies Proves the Power of Its Patented Shock-Blocking Products at the 2011 Super Bowl and Stanley Cup and Now Showcases at Leading Industry Sports Conferences

Innovative, Shock-Absorbing Technology With Ballistic Grade Kevlar® Showcased at NATA (National Athletic Trainer's Association) Meeting and PHATS (Professional Hockey Athletic Trainer's Society) and SPHEM (Society of Professional Hockey Equipment Managers) Meeting

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - UNEQUAL Technologies, the premier provider of protective technology, today announced it will showcase its new EXO Skeleton™ line of supplemental full-body, protective performance padding this week at two leading sports industry conferences -- the National Athletic Trainer's Association 62nd Annual Meeting & Clinical Symposia (booth #963) and the Professional Hockey Athletic Trainer's Society/Society of Professional Hockey Equipment Managers Annual Meeting (booth #314) being held this week in New Orleans and Phoenix, respectively. These conferences come on the heels of the Stanley Cup, where UNEQUAL products were used by select key players to win the championship. UNEQUAL products are also used by a large percentage of the NFL and hundreds of professional and college athletes in baseball, football, basketball, golf, roller derby, soccer, skiing, ice hockey and biking, among others.

EXO Skeleton padding is designed to take on concussions and other sports-related injuries head on. Created to fit helmets and other protective gear of any size, EXO Skeleton dissipates harmful energy vertically while spreading impact forces laterally, reducing the amount of force that can penetrate the head or body at the time of impact. With DuPont™ KEVLAR® at its core, it is the world's only patented suite of impact-absorbing protective sports padding that dramatically reduces the possibility of injury to the head or body brought on by blunt force trauma experienced by today's athletes, from pitchers' fast balls, to flying pucks, to bone-crunching quarterback blitzes.

EXO Skeleton padding is lightweight, ultrathin and flexible so it easily conforms to and cradles the head and body, while providing extreme comfort and extra protection for athletes of all skill levels across all sports and activities. With EXO's patented formula, athletes get two independent shock-absorber systems in one. The first one helps deflect the initial impact force at point of contact and the second absorbs and disperses the majority of the remaining energy (called blunt force trauma) across the pad laterally and away from the body. That same force would easily penetrate traditional pads that are more than three times thicker and cause injury, pain, and even death.
