With more than 30 US football teams on the college, high school and junior level using ProTech technology, we are accomplishing our goal to make the game safer. More than three years of visible results and verifiable feedback attest to this fact – ProTech is making a positive impact on safety, comfort and confidence. Recently, we visited with Coach Mark Speir of Western Carolina University. His players have been using the ProTech system for the past three years. Watch his testimonial below.
Defend Your Head’s patented soft shell technology provides a polyurethane product with unique chemical properties, designed to form-fit the outer shell of most helmets. The product is designed to absorb and consequently slow the transfer of energy triggered by forceful blows to the hard shell helmet.
After many years of research and development, an impressive list of university and independent researchers has proven the product’s ability to reduce the effects of head trauma. With the proliferation of information pertaining to head injury incurred at all levels of play, from young athletes to professional athletes around the world, the product has a ready audience.
A duo of experienced, successful businessmen from the worlds of sports, entertainment, marketing, and finance has teamed up to lead DYH and ProTech. It is no coincidence that both John Roman and Glenn Tilley have lived their lives in and around the the world of football at all levels. Learn more about John Roman and Glenn Tilley here.

Reduces speed of impact:
- Specially formulated, high-absorption material slows down impact to the head from the time of the hit.
Low coefficient of friction:
