Concussions and Helmet Tech w/ Schutt Sports

 

GMen

The best helmets in the world cannot prevent concussions

I’ve suffered concussions from playing lacrosse and crashing a Mt Bike in the city. I think back and wonder about those cold and wet soccer balls we had to head down at Marymoor Park that could not have been good for us.

Helmets protect the body’s most vital organ the brain and ultimately help reduce concussions...
