We have recognized the challenges of protecting workers and athletes from foot and ankle injury in a time where pressure to increase production is ever-increasing, and pucks are being shot at rates never seen before.
The Cost of Industrial Foot Injuries
Workers' compensation data from one small office reports 270 foot injuries from Jan 1–Apr 20 alone. These injuries accounted for $1.3M in losses, or $4,500 per injury.
The Industrial Market
The Cost of Blocking Shots
Shots blocked in the NHL doubled since 1998. In 2014 the average NHL team lost 252 man-games, and more than $7 million in salary per season due to injuries. A broken foot can cost the amateur hundreds or thousands in medical costs, and lost ice time. The cost is staggering—the answer is HOPlite Skate Armor.
