The Mattson APS21 PANTHERA system is a project we are already very proud of. It is an incredible concept, designed to efficiently protect the ankles of players on the practice of contact sports. The way we have developed this idea, will change dramatically the standards on safety on the fields of contact sports. It is ergonomically effective and provides high comfort and protection to the users. All these advantages without the problem of affecting the performance, thanks to the area of Free movement! Our goal now is to Produce a prototype and establish a basic production to fit demands in a niche market.
