Title: Shock-absorbent electronic device case

Abstract: The present invention describes a multi-piece electronic device case comprising multiple shock absorbing features. The device includes an upper protective shell, a lower shell, and a rear-mounted shock panel which form the casing around an electronic device. The upper and lower shells are shaped to include a gap between the case and the electronic device. Within the gap are a plurality of curved, force attenuating panels therein that are configured to flex when impacted, thereby distributing the forces applied to the impacted area. Additionally, the backs of the shells include slots for receiving bumper inserts that further distribute impact forces that occur on the upper and lower sides of the electronic device.
