PROTECTING WHAT MATTERS.
Reducing brain damage in contact sports

Deceased NFL players studied had CTE.
PREVENTING BRAIN DAMAGE IN
Athletes in contact sports often develop a brain disease called CTE which causes symptoms like Alzheimer’s, Dementia or Parkinson’s Disease. We believe that there should be more awareness on the one hand and more protection and measurement on the other hand. That’s why we develop gear to protect the head and to measure impact.
We start with a skull cap that measures impact and abnormal activity in the brain. Through the data, we can tell a third person (e.g. a coach) to take a player out, if he got too much damage to his head.
In the long-term the data we collect can be used for further research on the disease itself – that’s why we partner with medical institutes and neurological research centers.
