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.
Once an impact is detected, the sensor sends information to software in a synced laptop or Smartphone, where it is interpreted and converted into an easy-to-read visual and color coded alert.
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.
Once installed, the Shockbox holds up to hits, and works continuously to record, analyze, and report impact data, unlike other once-and-done impact sensors.
Easy and Secure Installation
Attaches to the inside crown of the football helmet with secure, high bonding adhesive tape. The low, long profile of the sensor does not disturb the helmet's fit or performance.
Sensitive Impact Sensors
Specialized sensors are set to trigger and record the energy, acceleration, and force of any impact over 50g of acceleration.
Communicates Instantly with Mobile Devices
Designed to sync with any Android, iPhone, or Blackberry Smartphone, the Shockbox utilizes LED and Blue Tooth technology to send impact data to any device up to 100m (325ft) away. Even if the device is temporarily out of range, the Shockbox continues to re-send the data for up to 5 minutes. This gets the impact information to trainers, coaches, and parents, instantly after the hit, where decisions can be made.
Specialized Smartphone App
Download the Shockbox app (included with purchase) to your Smartphone, and sync with the device to see instant hit analysis and data read outs, after a hit. App software allows coaches, trainers, and parents to track multiple players, record hit counts, analyze impact force and direction, and assess player health. Information can also be easily sent to doctors, trainers, and others via SMS or email.
Advanced Hit Analysis Software
Complex software algorithms in the app collect helmet impact data from the sensors (peak g force linear acceleration), interpret it, and match it to corresponding head impact data, based on over 40,000 individual sets of tests over multiple helmet types, and over 18 months of live data.
Easy-to-Read Data Display
Once the impact force is detected and interpreted by the app software, all information is displayed neatly for users. The direction of the hit, the time it took place, the impact force, and probability of injury are quickly displayed on the app. A color-coded impact alert makes it even easier to see the severity of the hit.
Injury Diagnosis Tool
A mini SCAT2 assessment tool included with the app allows trainers to
immediately record player symptoms following an impact, tracking player health and treatment in one central location.
Active-Sleep Extended Battery Life
Unique onboard software keeps the sensor up and running for up to 500 hours. Throughout the game or practice, the sensor stays in a dormant mode, designed to “wake up” in less than 1 millisecond upon impact. The sensor collects and transmits the data to the Smartphone app, and then returns to dormant mode, to conserve battery life.
