Impact-Alert Introduces Impact Sensors for Sports Participants

Impact-Alert Sport Systems has developed revolutionary sport-tuned sensor products that notify the users when the helmet has received a severe impact.

Once a helmet sustains an impact, its protective value significantly diminishes. When users continue to use the damaged helmet, there is an increased risk of head injury if a significant impact occurs. The new Impact-Alert sensor is attached to the helmet and notifies the user of any impact.

The President of Impact-Alert Sport Systems, Jim Blumsom explained that the sensors aid sports participant determine the validity of their helmets. This is essential since many falsely believe that helmets are protective gear as long as they fit on the head. Parents cannot determine if the helmets have suffered from an impact and the sensor will enable them to take better decisions and replace the helmets if required.

The easy-to-use, battery-less Sport-Tuned sensors developed by Impact-Alert are Impact-Alert Alpine, Impact-Alert Hockey and Impact-Alert Football. Sensors for lacrosse, cycling and baseball will be launched soon.

The Executive Director of the Brain Injury Association of Canada, Harry Zarins commented that the Canadian public overlooks the helmets lifespan as an issue. The integrity of the helmet’s shell is compromised every time a bicycle helmet is dropped and needs to be replaced. Zarins highlighted that research confirms that helmets cannot withstand multiple blows and do not effectively function as a protective gear as a new helmet does.

The Brain Injury Association of Canada is endorsing that helmets that meet the CSA standards be sold in Canada and is making an effort to inform the public about the helmet lifespan and care.
