Despite their sleek and heavy-looking appearance, hockey helmet are not as protective as one would think. Even though hockey helmets encapsulate the head, they are made of a thinner and less-absorbent plastic, meaning that hockey players are still at risk for a head injury, whether it is hitting the ice, hitting the barriers, or colliding with another player’s stick while going for the puck.
Hockey helmets are intended to protect the head; however, helmets do not absorb the real impact due to their design and materials. The Head Net™ adds an extra layer of protection and helps to reduce impact energy by up to 70 percent.
USC and Wayne State University have completed several Head Net™ studies and have concluded that, when worn beneath the helmet, the Head Net™ can absorb much of the energy that contributes to head trauma. While this headgear cannot prevent every concussion, it can help reduce potential exposure, giving you peace of mind for yourself or your child.
The Head Net™ is available in four sizes that range from children to adults. Its revolutionary 360-degree design is made up of a polymer material injected with air cells that help absorb and dissipate the impact energy around the head, helping you stay healthy and on the ice.
