The young founder, Euan Bowen developed this technology after his close friend got hit by the rugby ball. He thought that wearable tech for brain health is not much in existence in the current market. Hence, under the start-up company, HIT, Bowen began thorough research to develop this project.
The device can be worn during any type of physical sports activity. With an impact sensor, the gadget can be clipped on the helmet or halo headband. It can detect G-force and record the impact through a companion app. The app reco0rds all relevant data and notifies the user of any potential signs of risk or dangers. It has a range of 150m and can record for multiple devices. It also has a ‘Team Play’ option for recording functions for sports like football and rugby.
HIT is planning to move into production. This is a much-required technology of the times since not much is being done to avoid or detect head trauma. This new Sports Wearable that tackles Brain Injury is one of a kind. Hopefully, we will be seeing this innovative item in the market really soon.
