The revolutionary Shockbox Football Helmet Impact Alert Sensor is one of the most interesting and powerful advances in the world of football and head injury prevention, analysis, and treatment! Imagine being on the sidelines watching your son play, and knowing exactly how hard his last hit was, just by looking at your phone? Or as a trainer, being able to easily track the amount, type, and force of hits your players have taken over the course of a game, a week, a season, or a career? That information would be invaluable, and that's exactly what Shockbox delivers!
A sensitive impact
force sensor, the Shockbox measures the acceleration of a tackle, and communicates that information to a trainer,
coach, or parent instantaneously, keeping them informed of player health,
and alerting them to any possible injury. Installed directly into the football helmet,
the sensor reads Peak G acceleration, one of the most reliable and standard methods of head impact biomechanical analysis.
Already used and trusted by pros like wide receiver Laurent Robinson, Shockbox alerts people on the sidelines to threshold levels of acceleration and force. It also operates as a hit counter, for long-term health observation, as well as a concussion assessment and management tool!
Please Note - Shockbox System does NOT include football helmet or Apple iPhone. Please see list of compatible football helmets before purchasing.

Good sensor concept - works on iPhone
April 17, 2013
Good initial packaging looks nice out of the box. New velcro attachment worked better than the old adhesive so i can remove it for charging easier. Figured out the sensor is sensitive on its own but when installed into the helmet it was hard to set off easily. Software app doesnt tell me when my son has a concussion but gets to me check him when he has a big hit. App alerts me about 2-3 times per game
Pros:synchs direct to my iphone and ipad. app works when i am emailing or texting. good way to let me know when my son gets a hit above whats normal.
Cons:price...expect this to come down eventually
Great concept; product needs work

I bought this for my son and love the concept, but we had some issues while testing it out. We found the color range to be somewhat confusing as to when to test for a concussion and also found issues based on the surface we tested it on. My husband is an engineer and tested it on grass after rain, dry dirt, ice, other helmets and concrete and found differing results. He was unsure of how the impact was being measured because when the helmet was dropped from above eye level, impact sporadically registered despite registering when dropped below his waist. We will have our son wear the product because we love the idea of sensors and feel the product is on the right track, but we will keep looking for updates and for new options for sensor technology.

When I bought this, I feared that the manufacturer would have it set at too low a trigger point for liability purposes. When I dropped the Shockbox onto a pillow from appoximately six feet high, no impact was registered. However, when I dropped it on my kitchen counter from 2 to 3 inches high, the Shockbox indicated that concussion assessment was needed. The product is too sensitive for use in a football helmet, in my judgement. It's a good idea with poor execution.
