IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION

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.

Pads

SUCKS!!! Why would you make pads that don't have an opening for the back plate?! Then have these pads as the only option available at the store. Then you have back plates but no riddell pads to fit the plate. How confused are you guys? Dicks in Columbia sc, off of Harbison. They don't NEVER HAVE THE RIGHT PRODUCTS

READ FINE PRINT

The item seems really nice and very durable, unfortunately I ordered the wrong size and did not read the FINE PRINT about returns. There is a $10 restocking fee and return shipping and reshipping is on your behalf. Customer service is lacking and dealt with a man named xxxxx who was very rude and not understanding. ITs not what you say its how you say it!!!!! Having to wait 2 weeks for pads!!!!
