The ICD Shield

The Shield is soft, pliable and comfortable in resting position, almost not noticeable when you move or lying in bed. Absorbs an impact and becomes only hard and rigid when exposed to sudden shock or impact. Right after the impact the Shield immediately returns in resting position and gives you full freedom of movement back.

The ICD Shirt

The ICD shirt is the carrier of the Shield. On the left-hand side of the shirt is a pouch to insert the protection shield. The patented ICD shirt is made of a high quality fabric that breathes easily, it is ultra thin, lightweight and only available in color white. The Shirt can easily be worn under a dress, shirt or sports shirt and will be available in multiple sizes. Shirts are also available for children and young adults.
