Starting a new conversation
RHEON technology integrated into a product makes it possible to absorb, and therefore control energy. However ‘energy control’ is not something that’s talked about yet as a single concept, instead it’s referred to by a variety of terms such as impact, vibration, noise, tension, torsion and movement. There is little recognition that these are related and sit along a spectrum of energy magnitude.
RHEON can be incorporated into products in a wide variety of formats and geometries depending on the nature and magnitude of the energy that needs to be controlled.
Optimising this control is a function of good design and smart integration.
- Suitable for applications that range from sports bras to American Football gear and motorsports crash helmets
- Each point on the ‘energy control spectrum’ relies on a different subset of benefits of the RHEON technology
- Optimising ‘energy control’ is a function of good design and smart integration techniques
RHEON LABS seeks to create a new category of ‘energy control’ technology akin to the ‘breathability’ technology of Gore-Tex. The aim is to position the RHEON ingredient brand as synonymous with this capability in a new generation of functional products.
The Energy Control Spectrum
RHEON technology can offer improved support, enhanced function or better protection – or any combination of the three:
