About Shield-X Technology Inc.

Shield-X Technology Inc. (“SXT”) was founded in 2014 by two faculty members from Simon Fraser University’s (“SFU”) School of Mechatronic Systems Engineering and an experienced business entrepreneur. The patented intellectual property and the BrainShield™ suite of products result from over ten years of advanced research in the SFU Head Injury Prevention Lab addressing the deficiencies of standard helmet design to protect against concussion.

The core intellectual property incorporated in SXT’s products has been patented in the US, Europe, and other appropriate countries, and SXT has negotiated an Assignment Agreement with SFU giving SXT the exclusive worldwide rights to exploit the intellectual property.
BrainShield™ is a suite of products focused on reducing the severity of a concussion in sport, occupational, industrial, and military settings. BrainShield™ is a unique micro-engineered functional layer for incorporating protective helmets and gear. BrainShield™ reduces the sharp twisting and compression of the brain during impacts – the primary cause of concussions. Shield-X currently has four products, BX-E, BX-I, BX-C, and BX-R, with additional innovative and disruptive products in development.

Shield-X product designs are aimed at providing enhanced helmet protection while minimizing the costs of adaptation by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to existing branded helmet designs.

SXT’s business model is to work closely with international helmet manufacturers and well-recognized helmet brands to equip their helmet product lines with the BrainShield™.
