VPD…What is that?

VPD stands for Visco-elastic Polymer Dough. VPD is soft and comfortable, yet upon impact, VPD stiffens to absorb an extreme amount of energy created by such an impact. Since it is this energy from impact that ultimately causes bodily injury, the more energy your protective device shields from you, the less likely you are to suffer injury. Most protective padding is static. The POC VPD Tailbone Protector is progressive, meaning the harder the impact, the proportionately more energy from the impact POC’s VPD Tailbone Protector will absorb.
