Abstract:

Shin guards are molded from Lightcast and polypropylene for the protection of traumatized skin. Completed shin guards are lightweight and do not ride up on the patients ankles. The guards are thin and strong and with the open knit structure allow full ventilation of the underlying skin. They are not damaged by water and because of their porous structure dry quickly.
