McLaren “Project Invincible” Shield

October 16 2017

McLaren Applied Technologies has revealed the latest addition to its portfolio of personalized healthcare solutions.

The Invincible shield is in response to a challenge from a single client to design a device to help protect vital organs after surgery.

The fully wearable composite shield does the job of the rib cage – protecting vital organs including the heart and the lungs, with the garment providing further protection from unexpected low energy impact.

The multi-material shield features high-failure strain Dyneema fibers (as used in body armor) for damage containment, and a highly-toughened resin system with woven fabrics for impact resistance. The shield borrows F1 technology including Zylon fibers, used by all F1 teams on their cars for protection against side penetration. If that wasn’t enough, stiff carbon fibers ensure flexural rigidity and load carrying capability.
