Jan 2012 (Fore-arm protection)
I badly broke both bones of my fore arm at the start of last year with my club Carrigtwohill and was told I would be out for the season. After five months I purchased the evoshield customised forearm guard and the compression arm sleeve. As it can be moulded onto the arm it fitted perfectly and gave unbeatable protection and gave me the confidence to return to training. Within a month I was back playing and part of the Carrigtwohill team to win its first senior club championship in Cork in 93 years and participate in the Munster club Championship. It is light weight, highly durable and impact resistant. It is so comfortable you do not realise you are wearing it from day one. I would highly recommend this guard to anyone who has suffered a fore arm break and wish to return to sport with full confidence knowing they are fully protected.

4-Oct-2011 (Thumb Guard)
I was suffereing with severe swelling and bruising around my thumb and was finding it difficult to grip my hurl with both hands. Upon impact my injured thumb would slide off my hurl resulting in severe pain and a poor strike. With the evoshield thumb guard I found that I had no problem gripping the hurl and my hand did not release upon striking the sliothar. The shield also withstood any belts from opponent's hurls which allowed me to play pain-free for the entire game. Great credit must go to you for innovating such a user-friendly, affordable and effective item of sports equipment.
August 2011 (A100 Chest protector, Modified to protect the abdomen also)
My son Jack was born with kidney failure. He had his 2 kidneys removed in the first 6 months of life and was put on dialysis for 2 years. My Wife Cassandra donated her kidney to jack, which had to be located in his abdomen when Jack was 2 1/2 years old.
Jack is 8 years old now and doing brilliantly. He is obsessed with sports mainly gaelic football and soccer. His doctor has told him he must wear protective padding for any contact sports. Jack plays for the under 10 Navan O'Mahonys team and has found the custom fitted evoshield guard to provide the perfect protection for his abdomen and chest area.I will forward a photo of jack with his evoshield guard on over weekend.Thanks for all your help

SEPT 15, 2010 (ChestRib)
Story... My son, who is now 10, was born with missing ribs on one side and multiple vertebral malformations which cause severe scoliosis. …The EVO shield suited our needs perfectly, not only because it covered the areas we were most concerned with, but also because it was moldable and could be formed into my son's unique shape. My son liked the protector because it was "cool" and not as bulky as a previous hard body "brace" that had been custom made for him. It also wasn't as obvious underneath his clothing, and was actually comfortable... During the season, the shield proved valuable, as my son got hit from a wild pitches..., he may be back this coming spring... If so, we will certainly look into a new EVO for him... My son is never going to be a professional athelete, but your product provided us with security, relief, and confidence -- and it enabled my son to play safely... That's all that we ask and hope for...

May, 2010 (Rib guards) My Own Story from the Naomh Brid Website
http://www.naomhbrid.com/EVOSHIELD_IRELAND.htm ( St Brigids news Offaly )
I suffered a punctured lung and broken ribs along with other injuries in a car accident a few years ago, I was almost 18. before that I was playing gaelic football for my club and my county underage.It took me over a year to recover to a level where i could play again but i was always minding the injury as it was unprotected . I am 29 now and im still playing football on a regular basis with my local club and i have a great love for playing the game .Last year i came out the wrong end of a clash playing a football match and had to be brought to hospital.xrays showed i had broken ribs again.After months of bone scans and consultations with some of the top sports doctors in Ireland I was told my rib had healed wrong and there was a gap left in the bone.They considered operating but it was so close to the lung they advised against it.They suggested that i take some nerve pain injections and retire early from football. I went in search for a rib guard,all the rib guards out there are either too soft,too bulky or not supportive enough for my injury.The evoshield rib guard system is a comfortable,slim, custom moulded rib protector that hardens like a splint to your body shape after fitting.Its shock dispersion technology means that I can take a full bang to the ribs and barely feel it .This amazing product has given me a few more years playing football. Evoshield is now part of my gear bag as an injury protector but it is a pity that i cant turn back time and wear it as an injury preventer. Take my advice if you or your kids are playing a contact sport make Evoshield a part of your gear bag.
