Providing a Breakthrough Solution To The Mitigation of
Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion

Mitigation of Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury

Sports Technologies, LLC has designed and developed an innovative and patented helmet technology to mitigate serious concussion or TBI injuries for people who engage in athletic participation, suffer from military blast or fall. ST's innovative helmet technology dissipates collision impact energy and records and transmits data about the collisions using electronics sensing and reporting helmet technology to mitigate or reduce brain concussion trauma.

The innovative ST helmet design includes individual impact cells filled with fluid and valves for filling the cells and for allowing fluid escape at impact. Each cell operates independently from the others. Only those cells that reach the concussion threshold are activated.

The ST technical process includes a 3D modeling and simulation process used to design, fine tune, and tests its products. Once perfected in a simulation environment, the Company then works with its clinical partner to perform "human" pilot tests and then, full clinical studies.

In contrast to existing technologies, ST collision mitigation systems reduce all three concussion factors, g-forces, impact momentum, and torque.

Because of our innovative new technology, ST provides unique protection solutions for a wide array of markets including football, baseball, military, and the construction industries. ST is currently in discussions with several clinical partners to provide technical and medical consulting respectively.

The Company plans to focus its resources on the design and licensing of its cushioning and electronics systems as retrofits into existing helmets and as the foundation for future helmet designs.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Outcomes of TBI can range from complete recovery to permanent disability or death. Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) is one of the leading causes of death in people age 1 to 44. Unfortunately, many patients with this condition are sent home from hospital emergency rooms with simple instructions to rest. Of the 1.7 million TBI patients that enter hospitals each year, 80.7% are ER visits, 16.3% are hospitalizations, and 3.0% result in death. This 1.7 million is 3 to 4 times under-reported so there are more than 5 million TBIs in the US every year. In the US, at least 3 TBIs occur every minute. The annual cost to Americans is $76.5 billion in medical care, rehab, and loss of work for all forms of TBI.

Concussion

Concussion likewise represent a serious health threat to athletes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) estimates between 1.6 million to 3.8 million sports-related concussions occur each year in the U.S, leading the CDC to conclude the issue has reached an “epidemic level”. Football is the most common sport with concussion risks. The impact force of a football player tackling a player (25 MPH) is greater than that of a professional boxer’s punch (20 MPH).


Causes and Risk Associated with TBI and Concussion

TBI involves damage to structures of the brain as a result of external mechanical force, physical impact, blast waves, or projectile penetration.

Effects of TBI and Concussion

While the short-term effects of concussions are significant (memory loss, confusion and nausea are among the immediate symptoms), scientists are now studying the more dire longer-term, cumulative effects. Researchers studying the brains of several deceased professional football players with a history of head trauma have found degenerative brain disease linked to paranoia, aggression and progressive dementia. And a recent study commissioned by the National Football League determined former players ages 30 - 49 were many times more likely than their peers to have dementia and other memory-related diseases. People suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) have an abnormal protein that builds up and eventually destroys cells in the brain, especially the frontal and temporal lobes. These areas of the brain are responsible for impulse control, judgment, multitasking, memory and emotions. People with CTE suffer from degenerative memory loss and thinking ability and, ultimately, dementia.
