A Crime-Fighting Armored Glove

unnamed

Inventor and Founder, Dave Brown, was originally inspired to develop The BodyGuard 9XI out of concern about wild animal attacks around his Southern California home. An avid hiker, David was distressed when he learned that two female mountain bikers had been mauled by a cougar on one of his favorite trails. It became apparent later that night that the same mountain lion that attacked the women had earlier killed 36 year-old mountain biker, Mark Reynolds. To protect himself against such animal attacks, Brown began inventing The BodyGuard.

It is equipped with a video camera and a stun gun to keep criminals at bay. For police and corrections officers, preventing and defusing confrontations can save lives, and that’s the premise behind the BodyGuard.
