ShockBand is a stylish, impact-monitoring headband for young athletes. Currently, it is estimated that as many as 1.2 million concussions in youth are unreported to healthcare professionals annually, leading to long-term brain damage. Our product seeks to change that by actively tracking hits to the head and subsequently notifying a connected device. Instantaneous text messages allow parents to take proactive measures to check for brain damage, as well as take a child out of an athletic activity as needed.
Our product will best serve youth sports that do not use helmets, such as soccer, basketball, and volleyball. The headband’s notifications are nearly instantaneous and statistically accurate. Unlike current alternatives, ShockBand appeals to young athletes by utilizing an easy to use model and a low profile. Furthermore, ShockBand’s price of $40 dollars makes it both valuable and affordable for many families. We will also have a data analytics subscription that is $20 for six months.
ShockBand informs critical decisions in the most crucial times. It is those decisions that can change a life.
