Riddell Revolution IQ HITS- football helmet loaded with sensors monitors the head
The helmet is the most important gear of a sportsman. Many players have died on the field due to not wearing it, and many others have suffered concussions etc. in spite of wearing one. Riddell’s Revolution IQ HITS (Head Impact Telemetry System) helmet is loaded with a system of sensors that stores data about the last 100 impacts, which can later be wirelessly transmitted to a laptop for analysis. Six helmets can be linked to each HITS receiver. The players and trainers can evaluate the data via a web app.
Riddell Revolution IQ HITS helmet is currently available. The helmet costs $999 and the HITS receiver costs $299. The University of Missouri and several other NCAA schools have already placed orders.
