Trauma Plate for Bulletproof vest or Body Armor

Trauma plate is added to the vest to help lessen the "blunt trauma" bruising (or cracked bone) that happens when a bullet is stopped by the vest. Even though your vest stops the bullet, it still hits like a sledgehammer. A trauma plate helps spread out this impact and lessen the severity of injury to the mid-chest and sternum bone that is so vulnerable just under the skin.
