The Reebok Checklight can make a huge difference in the lives of athletes.

Athletes suffer a lot of head injuries, and if not detected early enough, these injuries can cause serious health issues. The Reebok Checklight is a head device that athletes wear during a game or practice to help coaches and medics keep an eye on how many times an athlete gets a hit to the head. On the back of the gear is a sensor that lights up when an athlete is hit. Based on the color of the lit-up sensor the coach can decide whether the player should stay in the game, keep an eye on them or remove them immediately. The sensor has a battery life of six hours. The benefit of the Checklight’s design is it can be worn with or without a helmet, allowing hockey and football players to take full advantage.

Parents of athletes will really appreciate the Reebok Checklight, because starting at age six kids can start wearing the device.
