Indiegogo NFL Football Concussion Prevention System Uses Impact Energy Diffusion Technology to Help Protect Athletes’ Brains from Direct Hits and Reduce Concussions

Just as light is defracted when it hits a prism, the “Preventer” football-helmet, impact-diverting technology spreads kinectic energy and helps diffuse direct shockwaves from hitting the brain

By Robert Hoskins

Jenkintown, PennsylvaniaCalvin Millwood, an American entrepreneur,  has developed an innovative helmet called the “Preventer” that could potentially save hundreds of lives and prevent concussions and life-threatening injuries by reducing the amount of kinetic energy that is transferred to the brain in today’s student-athletes, college and professional NFL football.

Millwood has developed numerous prototypes and invested more than 5 years of his own time and money to bring this football concussion preventing technology to market and has now launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise enough funding to complete the product development, line up a manufacturing plant and fund a marketing campaign that reaches high schools, colleges/universities and NFL teams with tremendous benefits of his new Preventer football helmet.   Coaches who pledge to this campaign will receive a helmet that protects their future players’ health and reduce their school’s liability.

 

Described as a ‘helmet within a helmet,’ the Preventer was created to protect professional athletes, sports enthusiasts and children from dangerous and sometimes fatal concussions. Millwood has created a prototype of the wonder device and is raising money to start production.

“Different football helmets, even the best and the most expensive ones, are made in a way which does not protect the player, and is responsible for the concussions and head injuries from falls and collisions,” Millwood explained. “The aim and vision is to protect the professional players’ heads as well as those of school children, who suffer from brain and head injuries every year.”

The Preventer helmet is stylish, light, and totally prevents the injury and pain and by absorbing the force of the impact. The helmet is constructed with eleven layers of protection that block the force of the collision and absorbs the damaging energy from the instance of violent impact to the head.

Using famed physicist Isaac Newton’s third law as the basis of his research, Millwood has spent the last five years and thousands of dollars of his own funds developing the revolutionary device that would lead to the prevention of concussions.

Millwood’s crowdfunding campaign on the Indiegogo platform will enable him to realize his dream to begin manufacturing The Preventer helmets, and significantly reduce the incidence of injuries from these types of collisions.
