About SHOCK ABSORBER

THE SCIENCE

FACT: There are no muscles in the breast - only the skin & the Coopers ligaments support the breast tissue. Once the ligaments have been stretched beyond their limit, as a result of breast movement during exercise, no amount of toning exercises can restore them. Unsupported breasts during exercise can have two negative impacts – breast pain and irreversible breast sag. Shock Absorber commissioned a study at Portsmouth University to understand the effect of exercise on the breast. Breast movement was measured 3 dimensionally on A to G cup women at running speeds up to 22kph. THE BOUNCEOMETER
