An Added Layer of Protection

Existing sports equipment like helmets focus on protecting the head from the outside. But that doesn’t prevent the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the brain that leads to the twisting and tearing of neurons, causing traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

It's Not Just the Big Hits

Repetitive hits to the head, and even smaller impacts — called subconcussive hits — have been shown to result in structural changes to an athlete’s brain over the course of a season. The Q-Collar helps protect the brain from these repetitive impacts.

Science Behind Q-Collar to Reduce Brain Slosh in Athletes

Reduces Brain Slosh

When the brain moves upon impact, it's called brain slosh, and it's the key cause of structural changes in the brain. Reducing brain slosh helps to lower the risk of brain injury.

Science Behind Q-Collar to Stabilize Athletes Brains

An Innovative Solution

The Q-Collar helps protect the brain by applying light pressure to the jugular veins, which slightly increases blood volume inside the head and helps reduce the brain’s movement.

Understanding RHI

RHI stands for Repetitive Head Impacts – and it's a cause of concern in contact sports. RHIs pose long-term health risks that include CTE, depression, and dementia. The Q-Collar is designed to help aid in the protection of the brain from RHIs.
