The FITGuardā„¢ aims to solve the problem of athletes returning to play when there is a high probability of head-injury. The device aims to significantly increase the likelihood of early detection and the overall safety of athletes. The guard lights up when there is physical impact to an athlete, flashing red to indicate the intensity of the impact and the "probability of injury". The strong flash is meant to indicate to coaches and others observing the athlete that the athlete may need to be removed from the activity and possibly seen by a health care professional.
