Reebok CHECKLIGHT™, A new impact indicator for athletes, which provides Coaches, Athletic Trainers, Parents and Athletes with an “Extra Set of Eyes” to Help Determine Impact Severity. The CHECKLIGHT™ skullcap is designed for use in all helmeted and non-helmeted contact sports and activities.
In the heat of competition, athletes aren’t always aware of the severity of a blow to the head. Reebok has delivered a simple solution. The CHECKLIGHT™ design uses multiple motion sensors to provide actionable impact data to help assess an athlete before continuing to play.
An easy-to-read display of red and yellow lights indicates the level of impact. The Reebok CHECKLIGHT™ is the first impact indicator that comfortably fits wearable electronics directly on the athlete – not on the athlete’s protective equipment. Embedding flexible electronics into a closely fitting skullcap helps to accurately measure direct accelerations that the head is experiencing in real-time.
Head impact injuries, also known as traumatic brain injuries, are a serious public health issue according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Sports-related head injuries are a recognized problem in both contact and non-contact sports, and for athletes of all ages and skill levels – from the student athlete to the elite athlete. For this reason, the CHECKLIGHT™ is specifically designed for players of all ages and skill levels.
