This sports collar is designed to protect athletes from concussions and serious head injuries. It is no secret that playing sports can be very dangerous the players, especially ones involving contact like hockey and football. Created by Q30 Innovations, the sports collar technology reduces the severity of head injury caused by hard impact and the brain sloshing around in the skull.

The U-shaped neck band tightens to safely restrict the jugular vein and increase blood flow in the brain. This makes a tighter fit inside the skull, with less room for the brain to bounce around. The pressure is about the same as a neck tie, so the device is not uncomfortable to wear while playing.
