Helmet safety research aims to kick start in new directions
The year 2016 is looking bright for Simon Fraser University researcher Daniel Abram, the creator of Brainshield™ and CTO of Shield-X Technology Inc. and his team.
This past fall three B.C. high schools began using BrainShield - the product of six years of research at SFU - including North Vancouver's Handsworth Secondary, which Abram says completed its football season with no concussions.
The company this week is launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds towards expanding Brainshield™ into other sports, including hockey and cycling.
In January BrainShield will be further used by Team BC youths participating at a U.S. hosted tournament.
The decal works by disengaging the outer shell from an impacting force, which could significantly reduce sharp twisting and compression of the brain.
