Abstract : The patent relates to an improved energy and shock absorber using one standard off-the-shelf textile material for all the strap components having the same configuration and composition and varying only in length. Such a design enables the shock absorber to be fabricated and/or repaired economically and expeditiously at any installation or facility that has available a commercial sewing machine. The magnitude of shock absorption can be varied without the need for any research and development effort, and by operating personnel.
