While many would assume that high-contact sports like football or rugby are the only sports where players need to worry about head injuries, this is far from the truth. It is sometimes the least obvious sports that are the most dangerous. Athletes in sports and activities, such as cheerleading, gymnastics, lacrosse, and water polo, are equally—if not more—vulnerable to high-impact head injuries, potentially leading to long-term and life-impacting situations.
The Head Net™ adds an extra layer of protection and has been proven by several university studies (including those conducted by USC and Wayne State University) to reduce impact energy by 50 to 70 percent—depending on the sport and level of contact.
While we understand that not everyone can wear head protectors during a game or competition situation, the Head Net™ can still be worn in practice. As most of an athlete’s life happens on the practice field or court, you are significantly cutting down the possibility of a career or life-threatening head injury.
With four Head Net™ sizes to choose from (ranging from children to adult sizes), there is protective gear available for all ages at every level of competition. The Head Net™’s 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.
