Most of us remember legendary cyclist Lance Armstrong winning the Tour De France over seven times making him one of the greatest athletes in sports history.
Cycling is both a serious sport and leisure activity that people from around the world enjoy. Hitting a trail on a sunny weekend afternoon is a great way to relieve stress and burn calories, but with any physical activity comes the risk of injury.
Injuries to the head, knees, lower back, and genitals, are common injuries that are attributed to handle bars and bike seats. According to PubMed over 500,000 emergency room visits each year pertain to bicycle related injuries.
The best way to prevent injury is using the proper equipment such as the MitiGator on bicycle seats, helmets, handlebars, knee pads, etc. The MitiGator absorbs whole body impacts by as much as 60%. This can make the difference between just taking a nasty a spill or heading to the emergency room.
In order for this equipment to work you have to actually use it!. Many cyclist neglect using helmets and other equipment because they simply don’t feel the need for it. The failure to use safety equipment such as a helmet can lead to serious injury or even death. Cycling does not have to be a hazardous activity. If you take the necessary precautions, it can be fun and enjoyable experience that can be done with family and friends.
The MitiGator™ Technology is an engineered cushioning system designed to protect people and equipment from these assaults and to allow them to continue to perform their jobs or enjoy their leisure time. The MitiGator™ uses patented air control technology working with over 4,000 surfaces per square foot to dissipate energy before it is transmitted to the body and thus help alleviate the problems.

Shockproof your addiction
Whatever your addiction is: motorsports, boating, motocross, mountain biking,… The list could go on. The first priority of any of these has to be to make the ride/experience as safe as possible. That is the purpose behind Mitigatorinc.com, to show you a new safety innovation that can make your addiction safer.
A lot of times we just associate the pains that come from whatever we are riding/driving as pains that you must experience because of the ride. This was the case last year before I had the chance to experience sitting in a MitiGator equipped seat in our USAR Pro Cup car. After every race I would always have lower back pain and would hardly be able to stand up after a race because of my back. But when I got to try the MitiGator Equipped seat for the first time the results were phenomenal. At first I couldn’t tell a whole lot of difference between sitting on just foam, compared to sitting on the MitiGator. But as soon as the race was over, I noticed that my back wasn’t sore. Infact, I felt like I could run another 250 laps. In fact I look at it as an advantage over the competition. When the track is beating them up, I have something that will absorb the impacts and vibrations so my body doesn’t have to.

The point of the MitiGator is to absorb impacts and vibrations, and dissipate the energy from them over the mitigator instead of being transmitted through your body. So don’t simply accept that the pain you experience is something that can’t be eliminated. Send me an email, John@MitiGatorinc.com and we’ll see what we can come up with to make your addiction that much safer and more comfortable.
