The Problem

Millions of sports-related head injuries every year.

Every year in the United States there are more than 3.8 million sports-related concussions. It is virtually impossible to escape the daily news reports about the dangers of permanent brain damage in sports at all levels caused by head trauma. The most concerning fact is that most of these injuries occur in children and young adults whose developing brains are especially susceptible to both concussive and cumulative sub-concussive blows.

Enter ProTech

ProTech, the innovative evolution of what was formerly known as ProCap, is made from specialized polyurethane foam that absorbs and dissipates the energy caused by a hit to the ProTech cover. The ProTech acts like an airbag, delaying the timing of the impact just like an airbag delays the time of your body and head from hitting the dashboard when a crash occurs.
