RIPKORD

The RipKord Shoulder Pad Removal system utilizes a cord that is strategically integrated into the shoulder pad design, that in an emergency situation, can be pulled out to separate the components for easy access to the player

AIR MANAGEMENT

Shoulder pad liner construction that attenuates impact energy on a cushion of air within semi-sealed chambers. Energy dispersion occurs through spreading the impact forces within a large volume of air slowly released from the liner at a controlled rate.

STAC SYSTEM

Specially-designed cap and epaulet system provides unparalleled protection to the AC joint while allowing for maximum mobility.

FLAT PAD

Shoulder pad design that sits low across the player's shoulder, minimizing interference with the rotational range of the helmet. Rigid belts route forces away from the point of impact by converting the entire arch into a large-scale shock absorbing system.

BIOTHANE® BELTS

BIOTHANE® brand webbing sets the standard for performance and quality in protective sporting goods. BIOTHANE® belts maintain the shape of the arch to dissipate the energy at impact.

DURABLE PVC BELTS

High resiliency PVC belts help to dissipate the energy at impact.

VELVET COLLAR

Velvet collar added for comfort.

SWIVEL FRONTS

Used in place of traditional lace fronts. Durable coated BIOTHANE® webbing is attached to the front of the shoulder pads in order to hold the shoulder pad together, while simultaneously allowing each side of the pad to move independently of one another during play.

Z-FIT BELTING SYSTEM

Attachment system using high-strength nylon clips to increase the ease of putting on and securing a shoulder pad.

MISSION

Our mission is to ensure the most effective medical management, diagnosis and treatment of suspected head and neck injuries to each and every football player at the high school, college and professional levels.

“The RipKord system is designed to provide a number of distinct advantages to athletic trainers and medical professionals when treating players on the field who have encountered head and spinal injuries,” Mike Kordecki, former Physical Therapist and Certified Athletic Trainer for the Chicago Bears.

HOW IT WORKS

A cord is strategically integrated into the shoulder pad design that, in an emergency situation, can be pulled out to separate the components for easy access to the player.

When dealing with apparent spinal injuries, the removal of shoulder pads with RipKord™ can be accomplished by no more than two trained professionals without removing the player from a spinal board. Current procedures require six to 10 individuals to lift a player off a spinal board even before they can remove equipment for treatment or evaluation procedures. By pulling a single cord, shoulder pads outfitted with RipKord™ can be quickly and easily removed by two trained professionals without elevating a player.

The Riddell RipKord™ Shoulder Pad Removal System Allows For the following:

  • Easy, effective removal of shoulder pads with less manpower than typically seen on football fields today.
  • Reduced time between possible injury occurrence and shoulder pad removal.
  • Minimized physical movement after possible injury occurrence.
  • Easy access to the body and airway.
  • Full access to the chest in case of need for CPR.
  • Quicker preparation for diagnostic X-Rays and MRIs.
