The Sport Shield

The sport shield is made from the same D3O® material as the standard shield. The shield is made out a solid 6mm thick sheet. These sheets offer the same characteristics as the standard shield but do not offer the puncture resistant top layer. This does make the sport shield softer and more flexible.

Using the sport shield

The sport shield is compatible with our standard pacemaker, ICD, VNS and DBS shirt and shield protection. The sport shield is suitable for both left and right hand sided carriers. The sport shield must always be combined with and be placed behind the standard shield. Both shields will fit in the pocket of your shirt.

Two options

With the sport shield you have two options.

1: You place the shield as is behind the standard shield for extra cushioning and soften the contact between device and shields.

2: The sport shield is cuttable, you can use very sharp knife to cut a hole in the shield so that your device will fall into the sport shield.




This is also very useful for people of whom their device surfaces. The sport shield act as support for the standard shield.

The Shirt can be worn under your own sport shirt and team jersey or can be used as a sport shirt on its own. The shirts are available in multiple sizes for both left and right hand sided device carriers.
