Introducing the new FITGuard Head-Injury awareness mouthguard.

 

The FITGuard™ aims to solve the problem of athletes returning to play when there is a high probability of head-injury. Our innovative device significantly increases the likelihood of early detection and the overall safety of athletes around the globe.

Our Purpose

Unlike a structural injury that involves a ligament tear or a shoulder sprain, brain injuries are not always apparent or easily detectable. Athletes continue playing, at times, without knowing they are at risk for further debilitating outcomes. Concussions are one of the most commonly reported injuries among the 135 million participants in team sports, including the 38 million boys & girls in youth atheletics.

Our Advantages

The FITGuardtm aims to solve the problem of athletes returning to play when they have a high probability of a head-injury. To accomplish this, we visually indicate when further evaluation is needed, using our High-Luminosity LEDs.

Our Database

After an event, peak linear and angular acceleration, as well as already established bio-metric user data such as Age, Weight, and Gender are uploaded to the F.I.T centralized database. Over time this database will help us improve the risk indication levels and thresholds used by the FITGuardtm.

Multi-Acceleration Rates

Clinical tests have proven that the combined measurement of linear and angular acceleration has the most accurate prediction of concussion possibilities [2], compared to either of the measurements independent of one another.

Sensor Placement

Clinical studies suggest that sensors located in a mouthguard[5], as opposed to an accessory on a helmet or a chinstrap, have a higher correlation to the center of gravity of the brain. This is thought to be a result of the mouthguard's placement in relation to the rear molars, which are attached to the base of the skull.

User Specific

FITGuardstm proprietary, user-specific adaptive programmable software, allows the user to establish a pre-determined threshold based on their age, weight, and gender, or set their own desired levels of indication!

Wireless Transmission

The FITGuardtm is Bluetooth compatible and can communicate with any BLE-enabled smartphone. Using Bluetooth low-energy, data & information can be pushed and pulled from the device.

Mobile Application

Our custom mobile application allows the user to download the event registry log of accelerations from the device. This will allow parents, coaches, and leagues to follow their normal concussion protocol, while having some quantitative data to consider.

The Solution:

FITGuard - A revolutionary mouth guard that indicates force through a visual display

The FITGuardtm aims to solve the problem of athletes returning to play when there is a high probability of head-injury.

Our innovative device significantly increases the likelihood of early detection and the overall safety of athletes around the globe.

Utilizing the newest and latest technology, Force Impact Technologies' FITGuard is a revolutionary new product designed to help protect athletes world-wide.

The Data

The device will constantly sample rates of acceleration. As acceleration increases, the sampling rate will increase proportionally. If the peak of that acceleration breaches a threshold, the LEDs will change colors. These thresholds are established by using the FIT pre-determined threshold or can be user specified. In addition to peak linear and angular acceleration, the duration of the event will also be transferred to the mobile application.

Mobile Application

Our state of the art application allows users to keep track of incidents, self-report symptoms, and interact with the device !

Easy to See

Quantifiable data will be readily at hand. This allows you to make an informed decision while following your normal concussion protocols.

Cloud Storage

After an event, the data will be uploaded to the F.I.T. centralized database. This information will be used to improve the accuracy of user thresholds.
