Concussion prevention has not been addressed, until now. In 2014, researchers from Simon Fraser University’s School of Mechatronic Systems Engineering founded Shield-X Technology, a revolutionary technology that upon impact reduces rotational forces to the brain.
Most helmets are designed, tested and certified for compression forces only (assuming the impact is on the top of the helmet).
In reality, most impacts induce compression forces and sharp twisting of the head.
The Human brain is one million times more sensitive to the sharp twisting.
Shield-X™ is a patented technology integrated inside the helmet padding that significantly reduces the sharp twisting during an impact, with immediate applications in head protection and other wearables
Shield-X is an integrated rotational impact system that greatly reduces impact forces that can cause brain injuries. Shield-X is integrated into the helmet pads to allow a sliding motion between the head and the helmet during impact.
BrainShield is optimized for Performance, Weight, Cost, Durability, Comfort, Premium Design.
