SAFR products focus on head injury reduction and safety
While most of the industry’s current head protection effort focuses on skull protection versus reducing the external blunt force that causes traumatic brain injuries, SAFR is focused on SAFETY…
Reducing youth head injury and concussions in contact sports
Every year in the United States there are more than 3.8 million sports-related concussions. Most of these injuries occur in children and young adults whose developing brains are especially susceptible to both concussive and cumulative sub-concussive blows.
Hard shell helmets were primarily designed to prevent skull fractures. Our product are designed to help to prevent sports related concussions, and address long-term consequences of repeated head impacts.
Our commitment to making athletes safer
SAFR is a team of committed engineers, doctors, executives and former NFL / NCAA players focused on football, given the market size and need for a proven and cost-effective concussion solution. We plan to expand direct-to-market efforts and co-branding partnerships with helmet manufacturers.
SAFR holds four other patents for additional head protection technology for concussion-prevalent sports such as hockey, cycling, and equestrian.
The Protech helmet shell is designed to reduce the risk of injury
The ProTech is a patented shell that is an “add-on” to new or existing football helmets and utilizes specialized material to reduce the risk of injury due to blunt force trauma. It is proven through laboratory testing to reduce blunt force trauma that causes brain injuries.
No helmet, helmet accessory or the ProTech can prevent all head or neck injuries to a player. Do not use the ProTech to spear an opposing player. This violates football rules and can result in severe head or neck injuries, paralysis or death to you and your opponent. Immediately report any dizziness, headaches, blurred vision or nausea to your coach, trainer, medical professional and parent. Do not return to play until you gain medical clearance from a qualified medical professional. Ignoring these warnings can result in more serious brain injury and could lead to lifetime impairment. The results of certain independent scientific test indicate that the ProTech, when properly installed, worn and used as intended and in accordance with product instructions, had the potential to reduce the likelihood of head trauma to the wearing player. Football, however, is a contact sport and no device, including ProTech, can completely eliminate the risk of concussion or other head or neck injuries. By using and wearing a ProTech, the player is assuming all the risks of injury inherent with playing football. Ignoring this warning may lead to another more serious or fatal brain injury. We are not liable for any injury that may happen during the use of the ProTech which must be used along with a properly fit and maintained football helmet. The ProTech is not intended for any other use other than with a fit and maintained football helmet and is not intended to be used when riding a bicycle, motorcycle or in any other activity.
