Protect the Athlete, Elevate the Game: A Solution to Sports-Related Head Injuries
Football helmet deforms upon impact, like memory foam for the head
Contact sports like American Football are huge in the United States and this is why professional athletes continue to put their lives on the line every game—but, at what cost? A concussion? A serious brain injury? Worse? VICIS and Artefact combined their skill sets to make the ZERO1, a football helmet that deforms upon impact with the sole goal of protecting football players from concussions and chronic brain issues.
According to VICIS, football helmets haven’t changed enough. The longer athletes wait for helmets to be improved, the longer they are at risk every single time they step on the field.
