1.The Landing Strip® lies unobtrusively alongside the bed, ready to absorb and redirect impact forces should a fall occur.
2.The combination of firm, compressed foams, bonded top fabric and free-floating bottom fabric react the moment of impact.
3.Deceleration begins and the high density core prevents a sudden bottoming-out against the floor. Like the airbags used by stunt people, downward force can dissipate along the underside of the mat, away from the point of impact preventing a sudden reversal of energy. Softer mats may be able to bounce a falling egg, but can fail under the force generated by a falling person.
