The Kneebone Pad
After teeth, bones are the hardest and strongest materials in the human body. Complex bone systems, such as the rib cage or skull help to protect vital organs in the human body. Due to their complex structural composition bones are able to remain stable and retain their shape even under massive amounts of pressure. Therefore is might also be possible to reuse bone material in the use of protective gear for sports. Since most sports protective gear is made of synthetic material, that has the potential to break and end up not actually protecting the user, a better, more environmentally friendly alternative for the production of sports protective gear, might be the reuse of bone materials. Since bone materials, can be easily manipulated, are abundantly readily available in massive quantities and have a very complex structure, that is hard to break or alter, they could become the future of protective gear for sports.
