'KNIFE injuries' don't always equal 'STAB injuries'. In the majority of cases they equal SLASH injuries. This is they key argument in favour of slash resistant clothing.
The key function of SlashPRO® Slash Resistant Clothing is to protect key arteries and blood vessels from cuts and lacerations. The potential consequences of such injury could include rapid blood loss, subsequent shock and even loss of life. The cutting of a specific muscle or tendon will lead to instant immobility and leave the officer in a totally defenceless position.
Please read our CEO’s extremely informative article, titled: "Re-Evaluating Our Current Understanding Of Knife Attacks And Injuries"
Many risk assessments in the past have been based on an incorrect understanding of knife attacks, the incorrect reporting of it, as well as incorrect interpretation of medical statements. Attackers typically want to stab their targets, however, due to the motion and movement of both the attacker and the defending person that strike will most likely result in a SLASH injury... not STAB injury!
The below graphic offers you a reasonable understanding of the most vulnerable ‘slashing targets’. Each ‘effective’ cut will have an immediate negative consequence to the officer or operative.
There are men and women out there who have made a professional choice in their lives to protect other human beings, facilities, venues, events and infrastructure from the bad guys.
We believe those individuals have the moral and legal right to be equipped appropriately. We deem our protective clothing as ‘appropriate’.
