 “Playing Rugby, you see the effects head impacts have on fellow players. The only protection products on the market are your universal Mouthguard and padded headguard which not everyone wears. By providing a device that can be easily worn to simplify the identification of head force change will rapidly grow our knowledge and safety appeal to young players while making the game safer for our next generation of athletes”. – Euan Bowen, Founder 

 

About US

Euan developed the idea into concept form in his final year at Edinburgh Napier University and now continues the vision of the company in the form of Managing Director. Based in Heriot-Watt incubator, we are focussed on bringing an inclusive use product to market that will:

  1. Recognise– head impact force by creating a baseline level of force the user is incurring and tracking ‘HIT’s throughout their playing time.
  2. Remove – once the baseline is met, the user is then removed from play to prevent further impacts after recognition.
  3. Assess – User will be assessed using current concussion guidelines (SCAT test) to deem their fitness to return to play.

THE PRODUCT

‘HIT’ device is a wearable piece of technology that attaches to the users head depending on application. At initial launch HIT will look to breach the rugby sports market. This will be done by implementing the device into the HIT headguard via our patented pocket design.

Testimonials.

 

 

 

” Assessing concussion has always been a problematic area in contact sport but HIT, in my opinion, have designed a brilliant and simple solution.

With HIT’s product, any player who experiences a potential concussion impact will have the HIT device on their scrum-hat light up visible to other players, referees, coaches, parents and guardians.

 

This simple design will enable players to be safely removed from the game and treated accordingly in line with Scottish Rugby concussion guidelines.

 

It’s brilliant!! ”
