Impact Alert Hockey: Sport Concussion Assessment
Impact-Alert Hockey, when applied to the back of a helmet alerts you to the occurrence of an impact in the medium or high range.
When participating in contact sports it is critically important that players do all they can to stay safe and have fun. Impact-Alert believes there is risk involved in all competitive sport but that the biggest risk is a lack of awareness. "How hard have you been hit?" is a difficult question to answer. With the Impact-Alert sensors attached to your helmet you will now have a clear indication when you have experienced a significant impact. This information when used with signs and symptoms, memory function testing and a balance test will provide you with guidance in determining whether to seek medical attention. The product is supplied with a Pocket SCAT2-inspired information tag (Sport Concussion Assessment Tool) to assist players in staying safe.
Impact-Alert is an impact alerting device containing two sensors that when applied to the back of a helmet, alerts users to impacts in the medium and high range. The sensors are Sport-Tuned™ and will turn RED when an impact exceeding the medium or high threshold typical for the sport is experienced.
