INSPIRATION WOODPECKER ANATOMY HYOID/ Soft Material Layer This solid, springy and bony support for the tongue, evenly distributes loads from vibrations Mimicked in the shock absorber by a layer of soft material SPONGY BONE/ Glass Beads The bone始s porous structure stops low frequency vibrations from reaching the woodpecker始s brain A layer of beads that helps absorb shock and vibration and also stop them from traveling to unwanted areas BEAK/Outer Case The beak is extremely strong and does not bend or fracture A strong material enclosure is the first line of defense for the shock absorber
how might we apply woodpecker始s anatomy to tennis products?
Torlon beads absorbs the maximum of vibration and transfer them in to the cushion below that prevents any damage to the playerâ€™s arm.
The plastic tube that is in the middle of Wrynex Lite contains Torlon beads that travel inside the tube. While playing a game, the torlon beads can absorb the maximum vibration transferred from the t`ennis ball to the net.
The frame is artistically crafted by titanium, the lightest material for tennis rackets.
CARBON FIBER HANDLE than regular materials. This material can reduce the number of times replacing hangrips.
CUSHION The cushion in the neck absorbs all the vibration transferred from the torlon beads.
