Welcome to a healthier future for your kids
Welcome to IMPACT Sports, LLC. We appreciate your time in reviewing our site.
It all started a few years ago when we had a really great idea, inspired by the innate intelligence (Inborn, God Given) inside each of us. For anybody who has invented anything, or brought a product to market, its a scary phase. Will it work? Can we afford to move forward with this project? Can we satisfy our social mission (saving youth athletes!) by developing this product? Is it Manufacturable? Scalable? Desirable? Will it sell and will it make a difference?
As we pressed forward with our concept development, we met with many amazing individuals and companies that helped us organize our thoughts and procedures so we can effectively test the concept through manufacture, impact testing and revision. This crazy idea has proved to be a manufacturable and scalable concept that is showing great promise in reducing force; both linear and rotational. The geometric complexity is different than any helmet on the market and as such has given us great joy and great pitfalls.....all assisting in pushing us forward.
At this junction, our helmet has been 3D printed, tested and, again, showed great reductions in reducing linear as well as rotational force (understood to be the primary force vector associated with CTE, MTBI, TBI, etc) Forms are being made to make all prototype parts so we can "pour" and re-test our helmet (non 3D printed parts) made of a solid/ homogeneous structure. 3D printing is essential for design revisions but definitely doesn't stand up to the high impact testing we did!
We will perform our next set of drop testing when completed. We'll continue to make 3D models of revised parts so we can re-test and produce the safest helmet possible. We have an amazing design and prototype team that have quick turnaround times for maximizing our investors' dollars and getting this helmet to market as quickly as possible.
Our promise to you is simple: if we don't create a safer helmet for your kids, we wont sell it.
***We recognize that no helmet can stop concussions entirely. It IS possible to reduce them, educate the public on how to prevent them and make these sports safer. Continue reading for some initial test results as compared to helmets currently in use.
