The Bruise Injury Detection Suit has been designed to make sports safer for those who suffer from paraplegia or any condition that causes numbness or reduced sensitivity. For persons with physical disabilities who hope to participate in activities such as wheelchair court sports or handicapped alpine events, this innovative getup would be an invaluable piece of equipment.

Elena Dieckmann, Lucy Jung, Dan Garrett and Ming Kong collaborated on this special item of workout wear, sewn with breathable mesh and stretchy fabric that absorbs sweat effectively. What's truly cutting-edge about the Bruise Injury Detection Suit is the pressure-sensitive lining that also happens to be recyclable. If the athlete should be struck or suffer a fall while wearing these pants, the areas directly impacted will turn blood red. The system helps to discover wounds early where they otherwise might have gone unobserved.
